The accommodation is on acres of private land with just 13 en-suite luxury rooms. Therefore, you can benefit from being amongst this closed gated community and away from the traffic, you are simply embracing nature.

Within the grounds is a luxury salt water swimming pool, perfect for that early morning cleanse after a deeply enriching meditation and energy clearing session or a sunset beach yoga class.

The grounds are so huge and set high up in the mountains of Portugal, that you will have first class, epic views and you will see as far as Lisbon. You are surrounded by such beauty and peace, you will engage in long spiritual walks on the grounds itself.

There is nothing you will not like about your experience here. You will be pampered and treated to massages, healthy meals, and workshops and the staff will do everything to take care of you and make you feel special.

You will walk away a different person, with new grounding and coping mechanisms when facing challenging times in just six days. There is no better way to do this, than in the gorgeous, tranquil mountains of Sesimbra in Portugal.

You will be surrounded by quiet villages like Azeitao, which is famous for its wine region and locally produced cheese. You also have Arrabida, which is known for its superb beaches, parks, seafood, and bars.

    Avoid a retreat run by Ronni

    CONS Cons: Ronni who runs Alpas retreat (nothing to do with the owners of the beautiful accommodation) was inexperienced, didn't deliver half of the activities on the intinery and I question what qualifications she has (if any) at leading meditation sessions and anxiety workshops. Quite frankly her 'workshops' were dangerous, she had 5 vulnerable girls in the group opening up about traumatic experiences (at her request) and was unable to deal with the wounds that were being opened. No professional 'after care' was given. No one felt comfortable around Ronni. She seemed stressed out herself, clueless how to run a retreat and had a mannerism not conducive for a meditation/anxiety relieving break. As mentioned, many of the items on the intinery didn't happen. We were left to our own devices much of the time with little structure. Ronni had been told by the hotel that they were expecting a wedding party but overlooked this. This meant that some of the group were asked to leave before the retreat was over. This was very disappointing. Her apology did not seem sincere at all. She handled the whole situation unprofessionally and insensitively.

    PROS Pros: The staff at the accommodation were lovely as was the food and the beautiful setting. The independent yoga teachers that taught us were all amazing!

    Organizer response: It's disappointing you felt this way as we have an open door policy. The retreat was not complete when I heard the news from Casal Do frade they had overbooked, I did have them deliver an apology to my guests and I was incredibly annoyed by the events as my guests are extremely vulnerable. We conduct workshops in regards to grounding your energies and none of the guests seemed to be uncomfortable as you were all asked how you felt on a scale of 1 -10 (10 being the best and 1 being the worst) Each guest before the task felt they were around a 5 after the task, felt like a 9 or a 10. Each guest were in a lively mood afterwards and we had a great lunch and each person expressed they were having a great time. I would never place my guests deliberately in a vulnerable position as this woud not stand well for their emotional well-being. In regards to my qualificatins, I have been a Meditation Master for 10 years, I am a Mindful Mentor and Coach for 7 years and have NLP Qualifications. I have never had a bad review and have helped clients successfully i the years I have been practicing. This is the first time this situation has EVER arisen. My work speaks for it self as my reviews are great on this site and my retreats are one of the most popular on this site because they are professionally run. I completely understand your disappointment but I did offer to pay for new 5 Star accommodation at no extra cost to my guests and apologised profusely. Wishing you warm regards

    CONS Cons: Not all the program parts took place and Ronni was very busy juggling the retreat and digital work.

    PROS Pros: It's been a pleasure meeting Ronni. She is very warm, open and fun. In her work she is spot on, effective and very helpful.

    Organizer response: Thank you so much for leaving a kind review. If you visit us again, please do speak to us if you have any concerns as our aim is to ensure you are happy and comfortable. As I'm sure you can appreciate, retreats take a lot of organising and we are perfectionisits who like to ensure things are done properly. We have grown incredibly quickly and our retreats are one of the most popular on this site for this very reason. :) We have now employed more staff to asist us with our guests and retreat needs. xx Each of our clients are very different and sometimes the schedule can change to adjust to their desires but the subjects are always covered. If at any time you feel other wise, we have an open door policy and you can speak to us comfortably. We hope you visit us again soon and it was an absolute pleasure to meet you. Namaste with warm hugs, Ron xx

    "Spending an hour speaking to this beautiful, strong, warm, eloquent woman has been the most productive thing I have achieved in weeks. Being walked through the process of grounding myself and working through difficult and challenging obstacles, with positivism and kindness has brought me so much calm and a new found sense of self. To be taken to a place of 'wholeness' in a particularly challenging time for myself is such an amazing gift to be given, one not often afforded to many as life becomes so busy. To have a haven of peace through spending time with you is more than I could ever ask for. Thank you so so much, you are amazing."

    "Spent an hour talking to this lovely lady Ronni and can't believe how much more focused I am. I have really achieved a lot since speaking with her just a few days ago. Ronni was kind, understanding and accepting of me. Would highly recommend and I hear her retreat is just as amazing. Thank you so much Ronni for your help and guidance"

    "Ronni is AMAZING! I had worked with Ronni previously as she was my spritual coach and she invited me to undergo the retreat in Sesimbra. The hotel is stunning and in a beautiful and quiet venue which helped with my emotional energy. Ronni guided me in clearing my negative thoughts and helped me engage with my Qi energy."

    "Highly reccommended."

    "Beautiful lady with a calming soul - the program had been designed in a wonderful way I benefitted from it hugely Thank you Ronni to you and your team."

Her team are friendly and the workshops were just phenomenal, packed with information and guidance on how to deal with every day stresses. My mother and I were welcomed and treated with the five star experience. We will definitely return."
