"Magical place with wonderful people"
The location itself is gorgeous, with amazing views of the sea and the hills (better than the pictures!) but Rafa, Mapi and the team are what make this place magical. They have thought on every single detail and their warm welcome makes you feel comfortable since the very first moment. The food is fantastic and the schedule is very well planned, giving you the opportunity to try different types of Yoga, meditate, learn more about pranayama and breathing (really liked these ones!) as well as giving you enough time to rest and explore the island if you wish. Simply perfect!

I recommend this place if you want to experience yoga in a beautiful atmosphere. The place is incredible, the view is amazing and the atmosphere is very peaceful.
I spent a nice week, surrounded by people from everywhere. I enjoyed the yoga session, most especially the breathing techniques that were quite long and intense. The vegan food was very gourmet and super good !
Thank you Rafa and Mapi for everything !

"Good retreat in outstanding setting. "
The setting is absolutely outstanding and so was the food. The programme is well thought through and the quality of the teachers is very good. There is a massive variety of types of yoga catered for all levels. I was also so very lucky to have an amazing group of people.

Yes, it is all as wonderful as the pictures make it look, and even more! Beautiful, peaceful, lovely yoga retreat. Lovely property, acommodations (a yurt/or tent for me - which I loved) and so many thoughtful places to enjoy the many awesome views and some introspective time. The yoga classes were great, beach visits and hikes, massage were all fantastic, the food…...well….it was wonderful!!!!!!!!! Mapi and Rafa are excellent hosts and true hearted yogis. Excellent!

"Retreat in paradise"
When I decided for this retreat experience I was skeptical and a bit worried..I did not know what to expect. When I arrived to Depura I found an amazing and peaceful place in the nature, nice people, good yoga classes, meditation, delicious food, interesting excursions in the beautiful Ibiza..I felt home. I could finally relax and focus on my self consciousness.
You can feel that this project is the result of love. Love between two beautiful souls, love for nature and for human beings. Thanks Rafa and Mapi for this wonderful experience. I will bring you in my heart and try to practice and share what I have learnt. 🙏❤️
from United Kingdom, July 2019
Fantastic retreat. Wouldn’t change a thing. Learnt so much and I can’t wait to use what I learnt at home. The chef is amazing and it’s opened my eyes , I’m going to make many food changes. I feel so refreshed after the retreat, I already can’t wait to go back.

"Much better experience than I initially expected"
I had the best time at DePura Ibiza. The facilities are amazing: a 360 view with ocean and green valley views. Mapi, Rafa and the rest of the staff are absolutely lovely. I felt like home since minute 1. The organization of all the activities and meals is perfect to the minute and all the activities and time to rest were perfect for our needs and level of expertise. Although I did love the whole experience, my favorite part of the retreat might be the food... sooo delicious and nutritious. By the end of our time there, worried and stressed faces had turned into smily, relaxed and tanned ones. Highly, highly recommended!!

"This is a holistic retreat, with a 'whole-istic' approach "
Mapi & Rapa give the whole of themselves, their beloved home & resources. This is magic. It’s not about perfecting poses, it’s about perfecting the self or at least accepting the self. Perched atop a mountaintop hidden inside dense pines lies the DePura sanctuary. We glamped it up with a luxury bell tent with electricity & comfy plush furniture & eco nature shower. I loved laying on my very comfortable bed looking out at the varying greenery up to the stars. We were lucky enough to have both a magnificent mountain view of the sunrise as well as the sunset. There were 14 people on the grounds. Yet, I only saw them if I chose to otherwise I hid away to meditate, nap or read on the numerous fashionable hammocks & lounges well thought-out, hidden from plain sight, merged into the rosemary & aloe lined pathways. DePura’s wooden raised yoga deck was the best with 360-degree views of nature. Yoga: wonderful with a mix of different schools, specialized concentration on eclectic practices rare to find outside of India or Tibet. Something for everyone which gave a unique balance to the entire mission of peacefully merging the body, soul, and mind. I loved the aerial yoga hanging in this beautiful nature while feeling different sensations of inversion in the open air. Food: fresh, fanciful, everything tasty, vegan with creative, healthy, fulfilling from morning 'til night. I feel fortunate for such a meaningful experience with DePura & the friends & lessons I took away with me.

"Fijne yogaweek op een prachtige locatie - pareltje"
Vanaf het begin een warm onthaal door Mapi en Rafa. Bijzondere warme mensen die hun best deden om het naar je zin te maken en oog hadden voor detail. En dat is gelukt. Een perfecte plek om in je eigen tempo tot rust te komen en veel te leren over yoga, meditatie en ademhalingstechnieken. De houten bungalow waar in ik verbleef en zeker de badkamer waren erg mooi, midden in het bos. De setting is prachtig en super rustig (de krekels zijn zowat het enige wat je er hoort). De sunrise momenten met elkaar waren bijzonder. Een goedgeorganiseerde, afwisselende week, en Rafa en Mapi stonden steeds voor je klaar. Ze zorgden voor parasols, eten en drinken tijdens ons uitstapje naar de zee. Het uitzicht vanaf het huis was adembenemend en het eten iedere dag weer een feestje. Complimenten voor al het lekkere eten en de verse Chai thee van Mapi. Naast de fijne yogalessen die er waren beklommen we de rots (in de baai van Cala D’Hort, tegenover Es Vedra en alleen bereikbaar te voet. Een heerlijk spannend uitstapje. Deze week zou ik zo weer opnieuw willen ervaren.
from France, August 2019
Merci Mapi et Rafa pour ce séjour rempli d authenticité et de simplicité. Un retour aux sources proche de la nature mais alliant bien sûr tout le confort nécessaire! Pouvoir se doucher en regardant la nature est un vrai luxe! Vivre dans cet environnement permet de déconnecter totalement en alliant cours de yoga et méditation. Le plus de mon séjour, fut l expérimentation du Reiki!
Le reiki... je suis allongée et Mapi passe ses mains au dessus de ma tête mes jambes mes genoux mon ventre je suis calme je me sens bien puis elle passe au dessus de mon bas ventre... lieu de douleur ...et là j ai vu, oui vraiment vu même si j ai les yeux fermés .. une lumière au niveau de mon bas ventre puis un souffle d’une intensité incroyable qui est remonté vers mon ventre puis le diaphragme pour être libéré par la bouche tel un exutoire ! De suite je me suis sentie libérée, soulagée et remplie d une nouvelle énergie !
Je reviendrai :)

Buiten het heerlijke eten en fijne yoga lessen vond ik vooral de gastheer en gastvrouw hele warme en toegankelijke mensen. Je voelt je meteen thuis.

"A wonderful experience"
DePura Ibiza was my first retreat. It was much more than I expected. The place is like magic, it takes your breath away. The programme was a well balanced mix and there was space for variety. There was a good vibe in the group, lovely people and good conversations. I enjoyed my stay at the maximum and will definitely go back.

"Perfect group yoga retreat to re-energise!!"
The hosts Rafa and Mapi are amazing and very accommodating. I came with my mother to focus on practising yoga, relaxing and really just getting away from our busy lives. We couldn’t have expected a better setting, guides and group of people to experience this!! Thank you for everything! Also the vegan food was amazing - Maxi deserves so much credit!!

Cadre magique et accueil très agréable. Une belle parenthèse pour prendre soin de soi.
from Spain, September 2018
Me encantó que todo está pensado para que inevitablemente, descanses, desconectes y te vuelvas a conectar contigo [email protected] Y eso es gracias a un equipo que cuida tanto la forma de hacer, como el cariño con que lo hacen.
Me encantó que Rafa tuvo el inmenso acierto de tomar las decisiones correctas ante una situación desagradable, que nos hubiera arruinado la estancia a todos los demas. Ante personas que llegaron con muy mal rollo, insultándole y exigiendo de forma agresiva y prepotente, prevaleció el bienestar y la armonia de todos, frente a lo económico. Dice mucho de lo que resulta importante aqui. Armonia, tranquilidad, amor en lo que se hace. Se siente, se nota y se agradece.
