"Lovely place, caring hosts, amazing food! "
I loved the accommodations, it was located in the high land part of La Oliva. The hosts were extremely caring and welcoming and very helpful with anything you needed. I even got lost one day while hiking/walking and I had to make a phone call for one of the hosts, Luca, to come and get me and he was able to find me right away ! The yoga classes and massages that were included in the package deal were professional and amazing ! I actually learned a lot about the poses I thought I was doing correctly but actually was not.. it was a great experience and I have really grown in my yoga practice. But, I have to say my absolute favorite part was the food that they provided every breakfast and dinner. You can tell they put in a lot of effort and love into the meals and each night was a surprise and everything I ate was absolutely delicious ! It really was such a treat

"First Yoga retreat "
Luca and Francesca were so welcoming. From being picked up from the airport to returning the following week, they could not do enough from me. Always ready with suggestions and useful advice, and genuinely trying to ensure my trip was successful.

"Atención al mínimo detalle / Soin au moindre détail"
Both Francesca and Luca are so careful to fulfill all their guests expectations and wishes. We can only fully enjoy, relax, disconnect and meet our expectations during our stay at their place and at their beloved island. All the team is authentic and lovely.

"Perfekter Ort um Yoga zu machen und die Insel zu erkunden"
Francesca und Luca sind die perfekten Gastgeber!
Frühstück und Abendessen sind ein Traum und sie sind immer offen für Fragen aller Art.
Die Yoga-Lehrer (Cristina, Erika, Phedra) sind super! Sie haben auf unseren Wunsch hin verschiedene Yoga- Arten mit uns trainiert und sind auf unsere unterschiedlichen Level/ Bedürfnisse eingegangen.
Die Massage- Therapeuten waren auch alle hervorragend. Meine Highlights waren die Pyramide und die Indian Head Massage- kann ich jedem nur wärmstens ans Herz legen!

"Lovely, relaxing holiday"
The atmosphere in and around the house is perfect, super peacefull and quiet. Luca is the most friendly person, always there for help, a conversation or a laugh. The yoga is really good as well, I liked the different teachers and yoga styes during the week a lot. Besides that, I’ve got a lot to see from the Island as well and went surfing a few times. This program is perfect if you want to see or do something besides yoga.

"Heerlijk relaxte week."
De yogalessen waren fijn en goed. Er wordt goed voor je gezorgd.
De massages waren fantastisch.
Het eten was super gezond en gevarieerd. Elke dag een uitgebreid ontbijt. Je hoefde niet te lunchen.
We hadden een auto gehuurd waarmee we elke dag het eiland konden verkennen.

"Yoga met Paola Sunshine, followed by a wonderful breakfast!"
Paola was a very kind yoga teacher, embodying the practice in body, heart and mind. It was such a delight to be in her warm, smiling, lighthearted presence.
Hosts Luca and Francesca are very dedicated in taking care of their guests. Breakfast is really very generous (see at as a brunch), and they are very present - though not imposing themselves - to make the best of your stay. They look like angels - their little paradise is highly recommended!

"Well planned, well relaxed, well fed"
The warmth and hospitality of Francesca and Luca made this retreat. The resort is not in a main tourist area of Fuerteventura, but it is on a main bus link to places that are. Both hosts went out of their way to make sure that my every retreat need was met. Be it arranging a massage, doing a packed lunch or joining me on a mountain walk. I cant thank them enough. Also as a meat eater, their cooking could make me consider going veggie/vegan. It was gorgeous

"Wonderful stay - timeout and rest"
The stay was wonderful, I felt very much „at home“. The room and space created in the house is amazing. Besides I really appreciate the daily breakfast made with love.
The yoga classes were very good for me, I could learn a lot and had the opportunity to be reached very personally- thanks for everything!
from Italy, April 2017
Everyday we woke up to a new adventure. After a wonderful homemade breakfast and excellent yoga class, we did everything from SUP - Stand Up Paddle surfing, to mountain biking, snorkelling, volcano climbing or simply sitting on beautiful white sandy beaches. And, how could I forget the wonderful massages! I left with such a feeling of well being and so was so relaxed that I would rate as one of my 10 ten vacations in my lifetime.

"tolle Lebenserfahrung und eine ausgeglichene Woche "
Die Ausstattung der Unterkunft: individuelle Zimmer, gute Fürsorge, immer im Gespräch. V.a. jeden Tag eine Beratung zu möglichen Unternehmungen auf der Insel, in der Umgebung, aktuelle Wettertips rund um die Insel durch eine tolle Vernetzung mit Freunden, Restaurantempfehlungen, die zu exzellenten Essenserlebnissen führten.
Preis-Leistugsverhältnis stimmte immer! Vielen Dank !!!
Die Anwendungen durch Masseurin, Reikimeister und Yogatrainer waren sehr gut!

Zimmer top - Luca und Francesca sind aufmerksame und liebe Gastgeber. Ein harmonischer Platz. Die Yogastunden waren inspirierend, vorallem mit Paola - und ich habe zum ersten Mal Yoga gemacht. Sie kochen vegetarisch und das schmeckt unglaublich gut. Sie machen diesen Ort zu ihren Ort. Wohlfühlfaktor: einmalig
I loved my week in Aloha Ke Akua!! I recently stayed in the beginning of July. I had the beautiful upstairs room with the veranda in front and gorgeous views of the mountains. Francesca and Luca are exceptional people and made my week truly special. Honestly, there are not enough words to describe how wonderful they are. They are so attentive and thoughtful in all that they do. They provided great recommendations and insights on places to see throughout the island. The meals they provided were delicious, wholesome and refreshing. The yoga classes and teachers were awesome. They made sure to check in on what you wanted to get out of the class and your yoga practice. I enjoyed the massages and was grateful for a relaxing and spiritually calming week. Francesca and Luca also helped arrange a surf excursion for me during the week. I rented a car, which made traveling around more convenient for me. I used Cicar rental company and got a really affordable rate for the week I was there. Fuerteventura is a beautiful island to explore with breathtaking sites to see. I would love to return and see more. Thank you Francesca and Luca for being the wonderful people that you are and for making my week magical! :)

Only a few times in a lifetime you meet such beautiful people. This may sound mellow, but truly I've rarely experienced so much devotion, attention and kindness. Francesca and Luca do not just organize yoga retreats, they are yoga, attentive, sincere, so helpful. Not to speak about the delicious food, the great yoga practices and massages. Their home made it difficult to leave the island!

Francesca and Luca were exceptional hosts! The large room, the vegetarian food, the amazing and abundant breakfasts, the yoga lessons and the beautiful relaxing massages, their being thoughtful at all time, and above all, the LOVE for what they do which was so visible in every single detail, made our 7 days 'Relaxing Yoga Retreat' fantastic and faultless. If you are looking for the paradise in Fuerteventura, Aloha Ke Akua is the place to be!

Gracias por todo. Pasè unos dias fabulosos. Hasta pronto! Ojala!
I stayed there for a yoga retreat over Christmas and had a very relaxing and peaceful stay. Luca and Francesca are the sweetest couple and they go out of Their way to make you feel home. Paola (one of the yoga teachers) is the best I've ever seen! I came out blissfully relaxed! Thank you.
