Francesa and Luca are the hosts and the heartbeat of Aloha Ke Akua. They looked after me beautifully and I had a lovely time. The vegetarian food was utterly delicious (and I'm a meat eater!) and the Yoga teachers were brilliant. Utterly delightful...

"A perfect feel at home retreat for relaxation"
I just got back from a 7 day retreat at Aloha-ke-akua and wish I was still there. It was such a dream from start to finish. Luka and Francesca who own and run the retreat were amazing yet unintrusive hosts. They make you feel so at home and nothing is ever too much trouble. Hot water for tea, fruit and cookies for snacking are constantly topped up and available. Not that you need it after their amazing breakfasts of fresh bread, fruit and all other delights (the banana pancakes were to die for!). Dinners was equally delicious with lots of care and thought. Yoga was each day for 1.5hrs before breakfast with different teachers who were all inspiring . Francesca organised a trapeze yoga class one day which was challenging yet so much fun!
Luka took us on a trek to vulcan hondo which is not far from the retreat for sunrise. They both make so much effort to make sure it's varied as much as one wants. Their is lots of free time to spend on the beach during the day. I loved cotillo beach best which can be reached by bus or car. As a solo female traveller I felt safe and welcomed also being lucky to have met a few like minded other travellers who had come alone. My room and I think all look out onto the mountains which was beautiful and I had access to my own lovely bathroom (showers were lovely and hot). The massages were scheduled in lovingly with the lovely masseuse Maria. All in all exactly what I hoped, expected and more for mind, body and soul. I will be back.

Felt like home. Luca and Francesca were super caring and friendly with the food and accommodation. The massages were exquisite. The best thing about this experience was the yoga sessions every morning. We did them in the beautiful sunny terrace before breakfast. The instructors were experts, they tailored the sessions for the group and they taught us so many nice things, I learned so much in this journey and upped my yoga game because of it. Everything was perfect, do not hesitate to stay here.

My mom and I spent 7 amazing days with Francesca and Luca. We felt totally welcomed, at home. The house and the rooms are very nice, always clean. The food they prepare was delicious, every day different and creative! They put so much love in what they do, and you can definitely feel it. Francesca and Luca are always there if you need anything. The yoga classes were pretty great too. We had the opportunity to try aerial yoga, very surprising! We also loved the massages, perfect to relax and enjoy the week. We totally recommend this stay!!

"'An oasis of Balm for the body and the soul'"
Aloha Ke Akua is run by Luca and Francesca in a way that shows their commitment to a dream. Their centre is simple, wholesome and elegant, all of which is very conducive to an atmosphere of well being. This is further enhanced by the care, interest and generosity they show to all of their guests. Whether it is the carefully prepared vegan/vegetarian meals using locally sourced produce, the table of jars of nuts, dried fruit, cookies, teas and coffee always available, a cosy blanket for you if you are cold, sourcing information... The yoga sessions on the veranda with little background sound but the sound of the breeze moving the surrounding plants were as deep or as gentle as you wished. Our three instructors, each in their individual ways and sense of spirituality, enriched our experience of yoga. Of course, the utter indulgence were the three wonderful massage treatments we had over our 4 night stay!
The area around Lajares is unspoilt by development as indeed were the coastal areas to the north of the island. Wonderful for walking.We were treated to a guided walk with Luca on Christmas morning up the Caldera Rodondo to see the sunrise from the crater.
I certainly plan to go back to Aloha Ke Akua. Maybe next time I will rent a car and explore Fuerteventura a bit more even though a car is not really necessary. The buses are good and you are there to relax!

"WONDERFUL STAY! "
Francesca & Luca are true love! They created an amazing place with the team of people with great positive vibrations.
The food was INCREDIBLE. They prepare meals due to your preferences.
Yoga classes were with great instructors, paying attention to your level and different needs.
Massages were just a real pleasure, felt like in heaven.
Also the location was amazing, giving special magical feeling as the house is placed under the Volcano Mountain. So I could go every morning for a quick run with incredible wild nature. The house was place between 3 villages, I could move around them very easy (I really recommend to rent a car, the island is great to explore on your own)
Francesca and Luca were very helpful. They could help you arrange your stay with activities that you like. Just ask them and they will share with you all the great spots and knowledge about the island.
After this few days you feel like home.
I will miss Francesca & Luca! So for sure I will come back, with my family to share this amazing relaxing experience!! :)
THANK YOU & SEE YOU SOON! <3

"Great place to get away from your busy life! "
We had a great time staying at Aloha Ke Akua. The owners are lovely people, great cooks, and very helpful. The yoga is great, massages are fabulous, and the house new, clean and homey. We will definitely return here, and recommend it to any one who needs to get away from their busy lives.

I've had a nice and pleasant stay. Very good Food. Luca and Francesca are lovely and everytime very helpful for planning the best for my days.

"A very special place..."
Francesca and Luca are the most warm and welcoming hosts; they make it their business to provide whatever information and support you need during your stay. If you want to do an activity they will find out about it and arrange it for you. They have lots of suggestions of fun and interesting things to do on the island, and places to go and eat. The meals are fantastic, beautifully prepared and presented. What a treat it was to stay in their wonderful place! The room was lovely, clean, peaceful and spacious. I did the Yoga and healthy holiday package and paid for an extra massage as the others were so good. I really enjoyed the yoga classes with both Paola and Cristina, and felt just the right amount of challenge as well as relaxation and meditation. Fantastic! Would definitely recommend this holiday if you need a relaxing break with plenty of yoga.

"Just simply wonderful"
Thank you so much to our wonderful hosts Luca and Francesca! Their warmth & attentiveness to our every need was greatly appreciated & it made our stay just perfect
The yoga teachers Paola & Cristina were knowledgeable & adjusted the class content to suit our different needs. The yoga classes sizes were small (5-6 ppl) & the instructors were able to come around to check/correct our postures. As the previous reviews mentioned, the yoga mats were wiped down after each lesson, the studio & the apartment we stayed were very clean and well cared for.
The massages were fantastic & we felt so pampered! The timetable of activities were well thought out & there was roughly around 6 hrs each day to visit the local beaches or go hiking or any other activities one may fancy.
The food was simply amazing. The dishes were locally sourced, tailored to the guests needs (vegan, gluten free etc). Our bodies sorely missed the healthy food on our return from the retreat! Luca & Francesca should definitely consider writing a cook book!
The retreat itself is based in a little village only 15 mins easy drive from the nearest beaches (El Cotillo and Corralejo).
We definitely recommend Aloha Ke Akua. Francesca & Luca are such magnificent hosts, we felt as we were staying with friends & they genuinely cared for their guests. Luca & Francesca try very much to tailor to your needs as much as possible, so if the advertised retreat doesn't quite fit your schedule, it is worth contacting them.

"Yoga in Paradise"
Luka and Francesca are so warm and welcoming, they are both fabulous cooks, the food is amazing. The location is quiet and serene, with spacious rooms all with huge ensuite bathrooms and great hot water. Excellent support staff with Paola, Maria and Hectors amazing Pyramid treatment. You will want to stay longer so book for as long as you can..😊🌼
from United States, February 2019
It was my absolute pleasure to spend a week with Francesca and Luca in stunning Fuerteventura. My thoughtfully prepared itinerary of yoga practice and relaxing treatments left me feeling amazing. This is a very special place, the island and its people are magical and you couldn’t be in the company of two more lovely hosts... I couldn’t recommend this experience highly enough . Namaste

"An amazing experience to recharge yourself!"
I was in this amazing yoga retreat for one week in January.
The experience was totally like a 4 star hotel with gorgeous, immaculate room, organic vegetarian cuisine and fantastic yoga classes and massages. Owners are amazing people, always ready to look after you but at the same time discreet. They are always there with tips to visit the island, amazing food, a wide selection of teas and cookies and much more. The house is in a small town in the middle of the island but it is very easy to visit the rest of the towns and the main beaches. Buses are working really well and sometimes the owners can give you a lift while they are driving to do their daily shopping. The house has two cosy gardens with sun beds and armchairs. It is in a residential area so it is quiet and safe. My room was on the upper level with plenty of space, wide windows with open views all around and a private sunny terrace. My ensuite shower was like a 5 star spa. Yoga classes were once a day, morning or evening. During the week we had different teachers and I could experience different styles of yoga: hatha, nidra and vinyasa. Teachers were really great, patient and fully professionals. During the week I also had different massages with two different therapist and they were great.
The retreat is designed on your needs and wishes and you share it with a small group so you got excellent services in terms of accommodations, yoga and food!
I totally loved it and I recommend it!

"Relaxing Stay with Delicious Food"
I had such a lovely stay at the retreat. The room was very comfortable and had everything i needed. The food was amazing and there was always plenty of it. Easy to find the place with a car navi. Recommend renting a car but not through Sixt as i had a bad experience. use the local companies. It's a short drive to beautiful beaches. I felt very at home and the lovely Francesca and Luca made sure everything i needed was looked after. The yoga teachers were great and i found that if you asked for a different kind of class they were very accomodating. It's small groups so it's very personal.

"Wonderful yoga retreat for our honeymoon!"
We so enjoyed our retreat with Francesca and Luca. They are lovely people and are so happy to help you, they really care that you have a good time. The quality of the yoga classes and the massages was excellent - Paula gave us an amazing, deeply connected yoga class, my husband doesn't do a lot of yoga and it really changed his perception of what yoga is, thank you Paula! The food was amazing and all vegan, Luca we loved your explanations everyday! Luca also took us to a nearby volcano for a walk up it, out of his own time, a brilliant experience. It was great value for money and a lovely way for us to start our married lives!

"Peaceful holiday "
This is a beautiful place, ran by beautiful people, who are so kind and generous! Francesca and Luka are truly amazing hosts - they are so helpful, and there’s cute little touches around the house that show the time and love that has gone into building the place.
This isn’t so much a dedicated yoga retreat, but a comfortable house with amazing yoga and massages on offer. There is much more freedom here than I’ve experienced on other retreats, which is exactly what I was looking for this year.
The small yoga classes are amazing, you really get the personal touch with everything here - the yoga instructors are selected based on the group’s experience and preferences.
The food was also delicious, an excellent standard where each menu has which has been carefully considered.
I’ll definitely be returning!!

"The highest level of hospitality I have ever experienced "
The hosts and the whole staff (yoga teachers, masseur, paddling instructor) is very professional and full of positive energy.
You can tell immediately that they put their heart into it.
I'm not vegetarian, but the food that they prepare for us is very good quality, tasty and looks beautiful. They create a kind of "art of cuisine".
We had a great time there and plan to go back.

"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

"Die perfekte Auszeit"
Luca und Francesca sind die herzlichsten Gastgeber, die man sich vorstellen kann. Sie sind fürsorglich und helfen einem wo sie nur können. Man hat sich nie verloren gefühlt und wenn etwas unterwegs war, konnte man sie jederzeit anrufen und sie waren für einen da.
Die Unterkunft ist super sauber und mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestalten, man kann sich einfach nur wohl fühlen. Die Zimmer haben alles, was man braucht und die Terrasse lädt ebenfalls zum Entspannen in der Sonne oder zum Beobachten des Sonnenuntergangs ein.
Die Unterkunft liegt bei einem netten Ort, der abseits von Tourismus ist und so hat man die perfekte Oase, um runterzukommen und zu entspannen. Die ganze Atmosphäre in dem Ort ist gelassen und entspannt, alle sind sehr freundlich und es entschleunigt sehr.
Das Essen war jedes Mal köstlich und sehr abwechslungsreich. Ich habe mich jedes Mal gefreut, was Luca und Francesca diesmal in der Küche für uns zaubern.
Die Yogastunden waren auch toll. Jede Lehrerin hatte ihre eigene Art und war auf ihre Art super. Alle waren sehr kompetent, hilfsbereit und man konnte sich einfach nur hingeben und genießen.
Was alles noch perfekt abrundet, sind die Massagen. Sie haben so gut getan und man fühlte sich wie neu geboren. Besonders Lucas Fußmassage tat gut:) die Energy-Pyramiden-Behandlung war etwas ganz Neues für mich und war sehr interessant. Danach habe ich viel positive Energie in mir gespürt und mich voller Tatendrang gefühlt.

Francesca and Luca are such wonderfull people, the perfect hosts!. They are always available for tips, making reservations/bookings, suggestions for trips and to find you when you are lost. Luca took us up the volcano. I didn't think I could make it to the top, but with his help I did!
The yoga classes are very good. We had lessons from Christina en Paola. The lessons were a good mix of strength, flexibility and balance postures. I learned a lot about alignment and technique. Paola often accompanied meditation with singing and her ukelele.
The programm has several massages, all different but all good. I booked an extra abhyanga massage which I can highly recommend.
And last but not least the food. Luca and Francesca are very creative with vegetarian food. It ranges from sushi to black bean brownies. As a non vegetarian I did not miss the meat at all.
Aloha ke akua is located in the montains, of the beaten track. For me that was perfect as it was very quiet. Corralego, el Cotillo and Lagares are places very close by. I do recommend hiring a car, so you can explore the island.
The classes and massages are scheduled in the morning or evening so every day you have between 4-6 hours at your leisure.

"Relaxing Yoga holiday"
Luca and Francesca are wonderful persons, really make you feel home und caring about everything! If you are looking for a quiet place in a familiar athmosphere their house is the right place to go. The rooms are well designed and spacious, the food they prepare each day is incredible good and healthy. There are three yoga teachers with different styles, all well educated and trying to adjust the lessons to the participants.The package including massages, also in different styles on a high standard. You can reach beaches in a 15 min drive and have opportunities to go on a vulcano walk right just starting from the yoga centre. For us it has been really a wonderful week, everything was perfect!!

"Warm huis waar je je thuis voelt"
Enthousiasme en passie van Luca en Francesca. Ze stonden steeds klaar met raad en daad én heerlijk eten!
De massages en de yoga waren top. Ze werken met een top team. Elke dag bespraken we wat we best konden doen en zo konden we naar de mooiste stranden, waar je als toerist niet zou gaan, de lekkerste tapas en restaurants. Als je een uitstap wilde maken, zorgden zij spontaan voor reservaties. Ze stonden altijd klaar om van je verblijf het beste te maken. Als ik de kans krijg, ga ik zeker terug!

Ik was na twee dagen de enige gast. Maar de plek was vol met warmte en vrijheid door het hele team. Na een dagje op pad te zijn geweest, kwam ik echt thuis bij Francesca en Luca. Ook de vulkaan met Luca op geweest. Fantastisch! De yoga en massages waren ook mega fijn.

J'ai passé 4 jours excellents, grâce aux cours de yoga de qualité qui ont été dispensés et aux massages qui étaient extra !
Mais ce qui fait le plus de ce lieu, ce qui en fait un endroit parfait pour se régénérer, remonter son niveau d'énergie au max, ce sont tout d'abord les propriétaires Francesca et Luca, très attentionnés envers leurs convives, ils vous donneront tous les bons plans de l'île et feront leur max pour vous satisfaire, et qui vous chouchouteront au moment des repas, et bien-sûr aussi les volcans et l'énergie qui se dégage du lieu.

"Amazing yoga retreat - great hosts - delicious veggy food "
The guest house and the hosts were amazing. The hosts were so friendly and attentive, they really managed to make you feel at home. I loved that this was a small structure, with personalized care for each one of the guests. A schedule for the week was prepared for us with a detailed planning of yoga classes and massages. Then there was a whole range of suggestions for visits in Fuerteventura near the guest house. A couple of the visits were organized by the hosts and one of them came along. The food was absolutely amazing, vegetarian. Each day a beautiful breakfast awaited us after the yoga class with a wide range of delights, local products and home cooked or baked food. In the evening the hosts prepared every day a beautiful meal with exciting variety of vegetarian foods. The yoga classes were great. There were different teachers for different styles and levels of yoga and personalized courses due to small number of guests. The massages were absolutely amazing and I can only recommend the neck and head massage as well as full body massage.

"wonderful massages / yoga and exceptional hosts"

"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!
