PB Lifestyles Active Escapes enable you to discover the BEST a location has to offer while enjoying a balance of leisure, local culture & attractions, activity, relaxation, nourishment AND indulgence!


My name is Penny Benjamin. I am passionate about empowering women and men of the world to lead active, healthy, fulfilling lives.

I love going on holidays! Being a of self-confessed ‘health-nut’, when I go on holidays I like to stay active and healthy while enjoying the location I’m visiting – still enjoying the local delights and relaxation but not going overboard. Through my work as a fitness professional I found that many of my clients, colleagues and friends feel the same way but always found it such a hassle to organise transport, bike hire, guided hikes, healthy meals & snacks, how to get between places, accommodation and everything else.

So I thought, why don’t I take that hassle away and deliver fun, active holidays? And PB Lifestyles Active Retreats was born!
