I had an amazing stay at Utopia. Felt at home immediately and had a hard time leaving again (but coming back soon haha :D ) The work is a lot of fun and just sometimes busy and a bit stressful (nothing you could not handle -> a bit experience in customer service definitely helps). The place itself is stunning, I loved how close the river and how beautiful the surrounding is. Oh, and the dogs are always up for an adventure haha. Sending out a lot of love to John, Antonio and Pia & the rest of the team. See you soon! :)

Really enjoyed my stay at Utopia, the work is straightforward and the team is lovely. It’s a great opportunity to engage with nature and relax. We met some lifelong friends from around the world and hope to come back!! Hours were longer than advertised when I applied but apart from that, loved every moment :)

We both had the most amazing 6 weeks at Utopia, we were both welcomed into the family with open arms and were hesitant to leave when the time came. Pia and John have created a lovely relaxing hotel filled with characters from all over the world. We felt like we were at home and can’t wait to come back

Utopia was a great experience as my first work away. the other volunteers that I met really helped with that, the lovely kitchen ladies, ANTONIO and moshy!!! the work is super easy and chill especially if you have a customer service background. I wish the hours weren't as long as they were, they could've been a little more honest about that and exactly how secluded it is. I did expect to explore a little more but if you're looking for a chill spot to relax and get work done, utopia is perfect for you. the owners were both welcoming

I volunteered 4 weeks at Utopia and it was such a great experience! The team was just amazing (I already miss them so much!), the food was so delicious (perfect if you are a vegetarian or vegan), and the place was just magical. If you love nature and are not afraid of spiders haha, then you will love this place! A big thanks again to Pia, Tonno & Franzi (the managers) who made me feel so welcome at Utopia! <3 Don't hesitate to contact them if you are an animal and nature lover and want to have a unique volunteer experience. You will have an awesome time! ;)
