Kalindi Lanzarote is a rural retreat and bed and breakfast that offers private rooms with one double or two single beds, or beds in a four-bed dormitory.

Located just outside Tao, Lanzarote, Kalindi is set in the countryside of the island's unique volcanic landscape and offers communal kitchen and barbecue facilities, shared terrace and landscaped gardens, an outside chill-out area with sofas and puffs, and a 20-person capacity yoga and exercise studio.

Benefits of the cactus detox program

Kalindi Lanzarote use Opuntia Ficus-India Cactus, also internationally known as "nopal". Kalindi Lanzarote chose this variety of cactus as many studies have confirmed its nutritional properties as a superfood, detoxifying vegetable, and aid in weight loss. The island of Lanzarote has more nopal cactus per square meter than any other country in Europe, and Kalindi Lanzarote pride themselves in solely offering freshly hand-picked and 100% organic products.

Nopal is a very low calorie vegetable: 100 grams of fresh leaves provides only 16 calories. Nonetheless, its leaves (paddles) have many vital phytochemicals, fibers, anti-oxydants, vitamins, and minerals which have immense health benefits.

Studies have shown that the vitamins and flavonoid compounds contained in nopal help protect from skin, lung and oral cavity cancers. These vitamins are also essential for optimum cellular enzymatic and metabolic functions inside the human body. Additionally, they help the body protect from scurvy, boosts immunity, and helps scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals from the body.

Results after a seven-day cactus detox retreat:

  • Body fat and weight loss
  • Better digestions
  • Less need to sleep
  • More awareness or mind focus
  • More energy
  • More flexibility
  • Regular movements

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Lanzarote Airport (ACE), which is located only about 15 kilometers away from Kalindi Lanzarote.

Arrival by car

From there, you can rent a car from different companies. Prices change depending on the season, availability and demand, as well as the amount of days you are going to rent and the category of the car. Usually, for a week rental, the lowest price can be around 12 EUR a day, and the average around 20 EUR a day.

Arrival by bus

You can also reach our rural house by bus. However, the bus network and the connectivity among the different lines is not the best. To go from the airport to Kalindi you have to first take a bus to Arrecife, and from the main terminal take an other bus to Tao. From Tao bus station you have a 15 minutes walk downhill to Kalindi.

Arrival by taxi

Alternatively, you can easily get a taxi at the airport terminal any time. Kalindi is only 16 kilometres from the airport, usually a 20-minute drive. The taxi ride will cost your around 18 EUR one way.

    "It is an incredible place for disconnecting and reconnecting. In the middle of nature, with a peaceful atmosphere, friendly hosts and like-minded guests, perfectly placed in the center of Lanzarote. Added value of the free yoga morning sessions, plus an extensive introduction to the island that the owners do to every guest. A very special place with welcoming vibe."

    "I enjoy the detox. I did not expect it so I thought I would go hungry and that would be uncomfortable. They always tell you that to be healed, you have to suffer. But quite the contrary. The juices are good and are more than enough. They are given in some boats to take a picnic to the walks that mark you on a map. So, every day you are entertained exploring Lanzarote which has so much to offer. Then, you can have times in the evening to relax, with massages, dance sessions and yoga Nidra, sound sessions, and bath sound. A chai tea to go to sleep with the taste of Indian essences. In the morning, be active again with a yoga morning session that facilitates Alys. Great, highly recommended!"

    "A quiet and relaxing place that gives you the possibility to calm down and recharge your batteries. I spent a week at Kalindi and it was exactly what I had expected. A rented car to get there is recommended although if you don't plan to move around the island a lot, it is reachable by bus and then it's about 20 minutes walk. It suited me fine as I traveled alone and had been around the island before. The location is great, very central but away from everything at the same time. I loved just walking around the trails across the main road and two days I also caught a bus to Famara beach (1,40 EUR one way). I think everybody loves the morning yoga there with Roy, a nice way to start your day. I loved my bed on volcanic rocks, I slept so well! Kalindi will be the right place for you if you understand its concept and don't expect a typical hotel or resort deal. Kalindi is a lovely and private spot where you can feel the beauty and power of nature all around."

    "This detox program has been incredible, one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The best of all, it worked! I feel more at ease with my body, but above all, I feel that I have given myself the time, space, and the freedom to talk to myself. The whole team of The Detox Island and Kalindi have been a divine gift, being supportive and accompanying me throughout the process, adjusting the therapies according to my progress and my emotional and psychological moment. Of course, a special mention should be made of Lanzarote, an island that is ideal to empty the mind, to look at life with another perspective, with more serenity, and with a wider horizon, that offers you more freedom of choice and It allows you to rediscover yourself. Wow, it has been a discovery, especially the dance and movement session with Lorena, the sonic baths with Made, the Acro yoga with Ruben, the special touch of Pablo and Susan's massages, the drops of Esther's sky, the bath in the moon of Steff's watsu, and releasing my inner voice with Marta. I will not forget you, friends! You have given me wings!"

    "If you are looking for a rural bed and breakfast in an amazing geographic location, you must visit Kalindi in Lanzarote. Nohemi and Roy run this beautiful yoga retreat center and apartments just outside of the town of Toa. Centrally located on the island, you can get anywhere from here in minutes, not hours. In addition to the strategic location, the breakfasts are unique gourmet and the hospitality and orientation superb. Want to enjoy the best that comes only with local knowledge, then make sure you visit Kalindi and experience tranquility, good energy, and a stress-free, clean and well-organized stay. One last comment, Kalindi can organize a massage session for you which was a highlight of this trip. Pablo, the masseuse provided a 2-hour massage that I would consider the very best in the world. Seriously, he is a gifted healer and the experience was out of this world. Make this a destination for this incredible experience."

    "A perfect place in the center of the island and only a short drive to anywhere. It is about a 15-minute walk (uphill) to a good eating place. Yoga in the morning was an added bonus. A caring lovely young couple Roy and Nohemi are originally from Barcelona and want to give something back. Simply furnished rooms and a great communal area with your own fridge space and cooking facilities. Definitely, recommended for retreats and rainbow hospitality. Great views to the sea nearby and a mother and baby camel next door was a joy. Feeling good after that!"

    "Kalindi is a really friendly and welcoming place. We stayed for a week, looking for sunshine, relaxation, and yoga. We hired bikes and were able to travel around fairly well without a car - buses from Tao go reasonably frequently. Going car-free is doable but requires some planning. We ate breakfast there everyday - delicious veggie food, really interesting, and tasty. Yoga led by Made and Lorena every morning was at the perfect pace for us as beginners. We also experienced a sonic bath with Made that was divine, incredibly relaxing, and peaceful. Overall, the place was great value for money, gave a different insight to Lanzarote that enabled us to explore the island in a different way, and Kalindi was really welcoming. Would go back in a heartbeat."

    "I spent 10 days at Kalindi and I found it to be one of the top places I’ve been to in Spain. Roy and Nohemi (the owners) are really cool and wonderful people and they have created a beautiful place with a very relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. It’s for everyone, people who would like to see a small rural village, go to beaches, surf, practice and learn yoga or meditation, bicycle, and hike. The place is situated in a small very cozy town with two restaurants and a supermarket and not to forget next to the a volcano (not alive) with the best view on the island. The town might be small but so is the island so everything is close if you have a bike, take the bus, or have a car. Overall, I loved it and I’m sure you will as well! A great place to relax, restore energy, see the island, and meet nice people (if you feel like it)."

    "Gracias, gracias y gracias al equipo de Kalindi por este maravilloso regalo. Lanzarote ha sido una gran sorpresa, su paisaje y su energía son impresionantes y me han ido estupendo para cambiar de aires, refrescarme y cargar las pilas de nuevo. El trato del equipo ha sido fenomenal, cercano y relajado, me he sentido comprendida y apopyada durante estos días. Las clases de yoga de la mañana son la mejor forma de empezar el día, y los masajes, bailes, equilibrios, música, etc. han sido un compendio de experiencias que me han ayudado a olvidarme de todo y centrarme en mí. Los zumos, batidos, sopitas y tes de la india me han encantadoooo, gracias por darme las recetas! Ojalá pueda seguir algunos de las tareas que me habéis dado para casa."
