Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, 79 kilometers (49 miles) off the coast of the city of Valencia in eastern Spain. Ibiza is a term in old Spanish for "party 'til you drop". Perhaps not literally, but this is definitely one of Europe's favorite nightlife playgrounds. Ibiza boasts more than 100 miles of coastline with some 50 beaches, plus plenty of restaurants, bars, and water sports - and clubs, of course.

Fit in a little culture and visit Ibiza's UNESCO-designated old town. Ibiza has a wide range of trips which allow our visitors to discover incredible coastal scenery on boat trips, flights by hot-air balloon with exceptional views of the island and also, the chance to enjoy a trip on a little train to admire inland nature.

  • Review by Erin from New York, USA

    "Lily is wonderful and so sweet! We were a group of eight ladies (all levels) and Lily came to our house for a private lesson. I can't recommend enough. She catered to all yoga levels and had great vibes! Very chill two-hour session, exactly what we needed! I'm sure Lily's retreats are amazing too!"

  • Review by Karen from London, UK

    "This was my very first yoga retreat. And I am a little bit smug with myself, I will tell you why. I feel that I picked a very good one, Lilly is an amazing teacher and it was exactly the atmosphere I wanted. Chilled and relaxed. I absolutely love Lilly's style. It felt like she took us into her home and helped us grow as individuals, within yoga and Ayurveda. Definitely worth going to at least once. I will go again, and I feel I could message Lilly and ask her for advice about anything. A true friend made, even though it has taken me way too long to write a review (back home and back to work). So in short, I loved it and I will go again."

    "Lily is one of the most professional and experienced yoga teachers I have ever met in my 10 years of yoga practice. She has a special intuition for every persons need and skill level. Her warm personality and the inspiring atmosphere of her retreats let you revitalize from the beginning. Furthermore she is an excellent Ayurvedic cook and she provides fantastic Ayurveda treatments. Thank you, Lily, for this divine and gorgeous time we have spent together. Love and light."

  • Review by Dirk from Germany

    "At first I am not the typical yoga-ayurveda guy. Its easy to convince a fan, but hard to convince a critical person like me. I can tell you, Lily is doing a really good job. She fully attended to the peoples characters and their individual needs. Beside that shes also a cool, multilayered person and she really cares for her guests. In my opinion this is much more valuable than her professionalism which she unquestionably has."

  • Review by Carolina from Geneva, Switzerland

    "If you have time for indulgence and take care of yourself, go to Lilys yoga retreat, the best of all with a true yoga and ayurveda master. A great experience that you will remember and of course you will come back. It is my third retreat and I'm looking forward for the next one, I hope very soon. It is a good balance between yoga, meditation, good Ayurvedic food, and free time to visit the island.Thank you Lily for this divine experience."

    "I truly enjoyed the LilyPod experience. Liliana is a wonderful and very experienced yoga teacher.During the retreat with Liliana you will get the chance to practice yoga in a very inspiring and relaxed atmosphere. Liliana takes very good care of her yogini not only during her revitalizing yoga classes but also by cooking delicious Ayurvedic food which is very tasty and healthy. She is a very positive teacher who brings fun and joy during the retreat. She also offers very good Ayurvedic treatments which makes her retreats even more enjoyable. Furthermore she provides very helpful lifestyle tips. I went to two retreats with Liliana and I had a great time in both occasions."

  • Review by Mitzi from Leeds

    "This Ibiza retreat provided a great mix of various types of yoga, various treatments including massages, healthy food, Ayurvedic food and lifestyle suggestions, great company, lovely accommodation, and a beautiful island. Lily is a great person, and is there for all your needs. She planned the retreat in such a way that all aspects of the holiday complemented each other. There was also enough free time to visit the island which has many beautiful beaches (and nice shops too!). Lily is a genuine, warm, and caring person. She is very knowledgeable and always opens to share this knowledge. I went on this retreat alone and Lily made sure I was looked after in every way. I learnt loads from Lily and she still supports me even though she lives in Canada and I am in the UK! A truly wonderful person and a great holiday."
