Yoga and Fitness Retreat at a Health Resort
This retreat has everything you could possibly ever want on holiday! Spacious accommodation in a tranquil setting, all your delicious healthy meals, 3 activities a day to choose from including yoga, Pilates, fitness training, hiking, Hydro Fit, meditation, time to relax, read, chat, swim, a little local sightseeing and an onsite Spa for the all important pampering. Bliss!
We believe fitness should be fun and so we’ve created a varied programme of activities that will boost your cardio and respiratory function, tone and sculpt muscles, improve flexibility, calm the mind and soothe the nervous system.
In addition to the daily sessions of Yoga or Pilates there’ll be a guided hike in the nearby mountains, a hydro fit water based toning class, Love Your Mind meditation workshop and three sessions with a Personal trainer.
You will strengthen your body, tone your muscles and boost your cardio function with a variety of free weights, TRX, kettle bells, boxing and High intensity interval training. These sessions are fun but highly effective.
Remember, you don’t have to be super fit to join these retreats. You’ll be encouraged to work at a level and pace that suits your strength and stamina.
And the best bit? Everything is optional, just choose what you want to do. We don’t mind if you skip a morning class for a lie in or stay by the pool and miss an afternoon session. It’s your holiday, come & do exactly what you want.
You’ll stay at a Health & Fitness Resort 45 minutes north of Alicante near the town of La Nucia (see below for details of our airport transfers). The resort has been exclusively designed to provide the services and facilities necessary to achieve an optimal healthy lifestyle.
The facilities are superb and include an onsite health restaurant, large indoor pool, an outdoor lagoon pool with plenty of space to sunbathe, tennis/basketball court, yoga and Pilates studios, infrared sauna, a gym with free weights and cardio equipment. There are also Spa treatment rooms where you can be buffed, pampered and massaged each day if you wanted!
Unless you are bringing a friend to share with you, you’ll have your own superbly equipped and spacious suite with a double or twin bedroom, ensuite bathroom with complimentary toiletries, a lounge area where you can relax & read. There’s WiFi, satellite TV, hot & cold air-conditioning, a safety deposit box and a maid service to keep everything fresh NS sparkling.
Daily sessions of body loving yoga with super experienced teachers. You’ll be practicing hatha, vinyasa flow and yin yoga to ensure you experience the full breadth and depth of what yoga can do for your body and health.
Food is key to feeling great & so we take feeding your body seriously. Each day includes 3 meals prepared using local & seasonal produce bursting in colour and optimal nutrition.
We believe healthy food should be full of amazing flavours but also nutritionally balanced to ensure you feel nourished whilst you’re being active … yoga, pilates, swimming, hiking, fitness classes.
Our menu is predominantly plant based (gluten, dairy & sugar free too) but we do offer local fish offered on some nights for those that would like it. Special diets can be catered for with advance notice and we’ll have one evening out to eat in the very pretty town of Altea.

What past guests have said
“This was my first ever ‘activity’ holiday and felt I was taking a bit of a leap of faith in booking it with no personal recommendation and solely from what I read online. I was really impressed first of all by the hotel and from there on from the 1st yoga session right through the whole programme my expectations were completely surpassed. It is a very professionally run company whilst maintaining a really friendly personal approach. By the end of the stay, I definitely felt my body was more flexible and whether it is my imagination or not, stronger. I have come away feeling I want to make a real effort to change my diet, look for either a yoga or Pilates class at home and to read more about mindfulness. The lasting memories will be of a very special 5 days in a very special place with some very special people”. Carol, May 2015
“When I arrived I was tired and felt ‘swollen’. Now I feel wonderful, healthier, lighter and happier! Nicole your yoga teaching is marvellous and I loved the Pilates sessions too. You have got me thinking of the important things and choices in life. You can be so proud of what your retreats do for guests.” Susanne, October 2016
“5 wonderful days of yoga, pilates, healthy eating and excellent facilities with friendly teachers, instructors and therapists. Professionally and knowledgeably organised with many personal, individual touches. I will return very soon!”. Ann, October 2015
