Description

“I am so grateful that I got to join this beautiful retreat week. I felt so happy the whole week. The yoga classes gave me an inner peace and well-being and I can’t wait to experience it again. Everyday was filled with what felt like the exact thing I wanted to do, the people in the group were fabulous, every one of them, lots of laughs and happy moments together. The experience still sits in my system and I know it gave me the final kick to change my life, I am in process, for me it was an important moment. I can’t wait for the next one, and as I am an returning guest – I know I’ve become addicted! Thank you for everything!”.  Ane – Oslo, Norway

Visit the stunning Amalfi Coast on this 5* luxury retreat at the Belmond Caruso hotel. We’ll indulge in daily wellness, spa treatments, mouthwatering cuisine, and more.

Join us for our newest addition in Italy as we partner with the Caruso Belmond hotel in beautiful Ravello for this shoulder-season wellness getaway.

Impeccable service will abound as we indulge in the time after the crowds have disappeared, the hustle and bustle has slowed down, and we can experience a quieter Amalfi Coast in all its splendor.

Occupying a splendid, rambling palazzo originating in the 11th century, the Caruso is a hotel in grand style with marble hallways, sweeping arches and vaulted ceilings, weathered old floors, frescoes and chandeliers. Its grand salons are furnished with precious antiques, and walls are hung with prints and old master paintings. But it is far from being pompous, thanks to the carefully pitched management style and delightful staff.

The original ivy-clad building dates to the 11th century, but it didn’t become a hotel until the late 1800s, when Pantaleone Caruso ran it as a pensione, drawing Virginia Woolf and other Bloomsbury types, and later Jackie Kennedy, Humphrey Bogart, and Greta Garbo. The Belmond group took it over in 2000 and began a four-year period of renovation, bringing in art historians and archaeologists while updating its design.

Day Trips

Our day trips will allow us to experience the many unique landscapes and activities that this area has to offer. We will begin our week in Ravello for a visit to the famous Cimbrone Gardens, with the iconic manicured views over the cliffs above Amalfi, before venturing further up the mountain to Tramonti for a visit of one of the areas known wineries – complete with a tour and tasting lunch.

The next day we’ll have a guided hike down towards Scala and Amalfi to visit the ruins of Sant. Eustachio and guided tour of the Ferriere Valley before ending in Amalfi for some free time to see the town and the sites.

Towards the middle of our stay, we’ll take a private boat along the coast to see the towns from the sea, with the views of Positano, Praiano, and the beautiful coves and hillsides. Our week will end again with a day exploring the beauty of Ravello – from food classes to learn about the cuisine to a ceramics class to try our hand at the area’s famous artisan craft.

Yoga

A daily meditation and yoga class will be offered at the start of the day in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.

Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students’ needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice.

During the other time in the day we’ll enjoy various walks around the area, and focus on classes and experiences to learn about the region and the cuisine/wine. This combines with the asana practice to deepen our mindful experience during the week in a balanced way.

Cuisine

Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast and dinner daily, as well as selected lunches. We’ve carefully chosen delicious and fresh meals from renowned restaurants and chefs to give guests an expansive experience of the cuisine.

Our dinners will include a few multi-course tasting menus as well as tastings of the regional specialties throughout the week. We’ll experience tastings from where certain local delicacies are produced, like rocky vineyards and small family kitchens.

And while on-site, we’ll dine in the hotel’s dining room or outside sea-view terrace. Our week includes a winery visit with tour, tasting and lunch, as well as a pizza lesson, food course with the chef, a spritz class with the bar’s mixologist, and plenty of opportunities to learn about this area through our tastebuds.

What past guests have said

“It’s hard to know where to begin. The week was, in a word, magical, and even my most sincere thanks aren’t enough. After following these retreats for a year, I can hardly believe I was able to experience it myself. You are an inspiration. Your thoughtful planning and extensive research comes through with every detail – the pre-retreat emails, the welcome bag and note, the extraordinary meals and excursions, the yoga classes which always seemed to be just what we needed. It was a privilege to meet you and to be in your positive energy and glow for a week. I take none of it for granted.” Paige
