"Yoga and so much more in fabulous surroundings"

Fantastic yoga holiday from start to finish. Very well organised, full itinery full of variety and choice from yoga, meditation, tai chi, hikes to the local lighthouse to juicing on the rooftop terrace, beach yoga and even salsa dancing. This holiday is run by two passionate people who care about their guests and created a lovely openness and friendship within the group. I would highly recommend!

Adelina Wood

from Great Britain, May 2018

Great yoga holidays, well organised and balanced. We were all well looked after throughout, additional extras provided by Colin and Anouk made a great difference. The hotel and food was good, location stunning, with easy access to activities, bars and restaurants. Yoga sessions and activities varied and not once I felt bored or pressured into activities. It certainly felt like holidays. Thank you Colin and Anouk for your time, effort and for providing such great opportunity to unwind and relax. I would recommend Premier Yoga Holidays to anyone.

"A great holiday with yoga"

I was attracted to the break as it was a described as "a holiday with yoga". It lived up to the billing. It offered a wide range of yoga, pilates, meditation and tai chi, and other activities, all taught by tutors who were trained and experiences, and very encouraging. There were additional activities - a trip to local towns, a very glam drink at the marina club, and a walk to the local lighthouse which were very welcome and lovely. The holiday organisers were very helpful, spending time with the group most days and being available on the phone and in person daily. You could do as little or as much as you wanted, and try new disciplines. The yoga centre also had therapies available, and I had a skilled and relaxing massage.

The hotel was on the beach and had good facilities and was very comfortable.

I met a group of people who were just as interested in having a holiday with yoga and were happy to hang out and share experiences. We had lots of wine and cake and had a great time!

"A truly wonderful yoga holiday"

Lots of yoga (four classes a day and also early morning TaiChi). lots of variety of yoga -something to suit anyone. Beach yoga was a beautiful experience. The studio is gorgeous. Very friendly. Will be back next year and have recommended it to others too. Thank you!

"Can’t wait to do it again!"

A fantastic yoga holiday offering a variety of classes and instructors, with the option to do as much or as little as you liked. My first “solo” holiday - en extremely enjoyable experience. Anouk and Colin are fantastic, and I met a wonderful group of people.

Warmth of welcome; high quality and extensive choice of activities; ideal location for outside activities such as beach yoga, hiking,running,cycling,Tai Chi; beautiful well equipped studio; flexible itinerary; ideal for single travelers, scope to enjoy group events and solitude; excellent massage facility; 24/7 friendly support from Colin and Anouk.

Great range of classes and other optional activities. The yoga teachers were all very good. Loved all of the yoga especially beach yoga and aerial yoga which I can't do at home! Really friendly and helpful hosts in Colin and Anouk. Albir and the surrounding area was a really nice base especially when the sun was out. Great value yoga holiday with really nice people.

"I loved the whole experience, it was a fantastic time"

Everything was just perfect, Colin and Anouk are lovely and I enjoyed all the activities. I felt like I had been away a lot longer cause I packed a lot in but still found time to sunbathe.

Yvonne Gabriel

"Great first yoga holiday "

Great opportunity to try different styles of yoga and mind body and soul experiences at your own pace as much or little as you like. I enjoyed the inclusion of the excursions to the neighbouring areas this added another optional dimension to the holiday. Good quality, varied and experienced instructors. Anouk and Colin were well organised, friendly and attentive providing a positive all round experience. Fantastic location allowing for beach and rooftop doesn't come much better than that in the sunshine...and a beautiful yoga studio for the indoor sessions. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend this holiday to yoga enthusiasts of all levels.

"The best holiday I’ve had for a long time!"

This was my first yoga holiday and I could not have enjoyed it more! Everything was seamlessly organised, from airport pick ups, activities, excursions, classes and the drop off. Colin and Annouk are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. They work hard to make sure everyone is looked after so if you’re traveling alone be assured you will very quickly be made to feel welcome and part of the group. The classes and instructors were brilliant and the variety was great. The yoga studio is beautiful. If you want a holiday with lots of new experiences, lots of laughs, meeting amazing people from around the world and some great yoga then I would highly recommend! Fabulous!

"Fantastic Holiday-enjoyed every second! "

Good balance of activities and socialising plus enough free time. Not a boot camp thank goodness! The quality of classes and instructors was very high and I always felt looked after. Colin and Anouk are perfect hosts. They’re super organised and from the minute I arrived on my own I felt welcome and in safe hands. The Kactus hotel is fine for this type of holiday; comfortable, friendly staff, well maintained. I wanted a holiday with yoga not a retreat and that’s exactly what I got. Plus I met some lovely, fun people.

Barb Bodine

"Fabulous, friendly, relaxed, supportive "

Colin and Anouk were fantastic hosts. Really helpful and friendly, making us all feel welcome. There were people travelling individually, as a couple, as friends, and as family members and we all made friends. I'm sure that no one felt alone. Do as many or as few of the activities as you like. Very relaxed and friendly. Hotel was great, activities were great.

"Perfect break"

Our hosts, Colin and Anouk, were consistently engaged and supportive, nothing was too much trouble; they really went the extra mile and ensured that everything was perfect. The location was idyllic, with places of interest to visit (all arranged for our group). Yoga sessions were excellent, plentiful and varied, and supplemented by other complementary activities.

from Great Britain, January 2018

Lovely group of people to share a great variety of activities. You could pick and choose when to opt in and opt out. Fantastic energy, knowledge and humour from Colin and Anouk who really give 150% and care about you and your enjoyment.

"An exceptional holiday ran by exceptional people!"

"Fabulous holiday "

As a vegetarian/vegan they provided me with a personal plate of Mediterranean grilled vegetables/quinoa/paella whenever I asked which I thought was great! Never had treatment like that in a hotel. Also they had gluten free bread and lots of the food was labelled gluten free.

The yoga studio was lovely with a varied range of styles and instructors - something for everyone. The aerial yoga is a must!

The massages are also highly recommended and for a reasonable price.

The hotel was a stones throw away from the beach, couldn’t be any closer, and a range of lovely beach side restaurants along the promenade.

On the second to last day we took an excursion to some really cute old towns with nice souvenirs and breathtaking views. Not to be missed :)

"Professional Company-Great Value for Money "

Professional service. Colin and Anouk very helpful and great company. Beautiful Yoga Studio and Classes. Fantastic excursions. Lovely relaxed friendly location, hotel right by the beach. Cool bars and restaurants in walking distance from hotel.

"Absolute paradise - surpassed expectations and a hidden gem"

The care and attention to detail provided by Anouk and Colin is second to none , extremely efficient from pick up at the airport , to every point on the itinerary to dropping off . The hotel is in an ideal location to be used as a base for breakfast and sleeping, it is across from the beach. The food is ok , but Albir has some fabulous restaurants and cocktail bars - not to be missed !

Classes were held on the beach - fantastic, especially sunrise Thai chi , and at the yoga studio - a superb facility beautifully designed with an excellent Thai Restaurant adjoining. The instructors were of a high standard and extremely professional .

The whole experience was amazing , classes, location and excursions - fantastic value for money and we will return . Anouk and Colin were seasoned professionals, every detail catered for , including little surprises, treats and even a birthday celebration for one of their clients.

The group was from all over the world and it was lovely to meet different people .

If you would like to practice yoga , meditation, Thai chi etc whilst at the same time be spoiled by fabulous locations and weather and a truly well balanced itinerary this is for you .

"Amazing holiday"

This was a wonderful experience. The scenery was gorgeous. The weather was perfect. Anouk and Colin were great at organizing and coordinating everything. There were so many different types of yoga offered, which was great, and the yoga instructors were very good teachers. I enjoyed being in an international group- there were several countries represented. Two people in the group enjoyed it so much that this was their second time. I plan to go back, too. The outings were great fun. However, all activities are optional, so you are not obligated to do anything. It’s very laid back, which I loved. The hotel food is okay, but there is something for everyone to choose from, and there are several amazing and affordable restaurants close to the hotel. I highly recommend this yoga vacation.

Asta Rude Riis

I loved how welcoming and encouraging Anouk and Colin were. They went out of their way to give us the best possible vacation! The yoga instructors were all excellent as well, and the yoga shala looked amazing. The Hotel was right on the beach which was amazing as well. I had a great time and hope to be back soon! :)

Emma Whitby

"Fabulous break"

The hotel was in a great location, the yoga classes were a great mix of old favourites and things I'd never tried (aerial yoga and tai chi). Then in the evening there was always something that you could join in with, but no pressure if you just wanted to chill out.

The hosts Anouk and Colin were really wonderful and made you really feel at home. So the holiday was really relaxing but also great fun and everyone in the group enjoyed it. I'd definitely recommend it. I'd never been on a yoga holiday before but next year I'm hoping to persuade a friend or two to join me as I know they would love this holiday.

"Fabulous "

Anouk and Colin were amazing hosts. They went above and beyond expectations. The classes were excellent and the variety was good. A great way to get experience new styles of yoga. Really enjoyed that this was a holiday rather than a retreat. No pressure to join everything all the time. Had lots of down time to relax. Hotel was old but clean. Very quiet and catered to the oldies.

"Best short break I have ever been on."

Anouk and Colin were extremely friendly kind and professional throughout and made everyone feel at home.

"Fantastic Experiance"

All things about this yoga holiday were very good, from being met at the airport by Anouk, to being dropped of by Colin after our holiday, and all the classes and excersions in between. A great choice of different styles of yoga, and no pressure to do any of them if you wanted an easier day.

Julie Karp

This yoga holiday far exceeded my expectations in most ways! It was so well-planned and executed. Our hosts, Anouk and Colin are amazing. The yoga classes were excellent, activities were so much fun, the location was perfect, and it was a wonderful group of people. I was suspect of all of the perfect reviews, but now I totally get it!

"An experience not to be missed "

The class schedule/variety was perfect. The relaxed atmosphere was exactly what I was looking for. Our hosts were to say the least exceptional. Anouk and Collin took the best care of all of us with ease and professionalism. They treated us as friend and not as just clients. I didn't even have to take any pictures as they did the job for us. Well done and a big thank you.

Conchita Fernandez Del Campo

from Belgium, April 2017

I did appreciate the very personal involvement of the organizers … they really made sure everyone was feeling welcome … all the week through, they did propose little surprises here and there (on the roof, on the beach, in the morning or in the evening) making all the difference … creating and very welcoming and sharing atmosphere …

On a more "practical level", I did choose (and appreciate !) this particular proposition because everything was organized in order to be easy for the person (large schedule for the activities, picked up / back to the airport !!!! …). No financial bad surprises and no stress !!!

"Ontspannen vakantie"

Vijf dagen lang heb ik nergens aan hoeven denken. Anouk en Colin hadden alles perfect georganiseerd en waren een super gastvrouw en -heer. Je kon kiezen uit een gevarieerd aanbod van yogalessen en pilates en kickboksles. Alles vond plaats op of rond het strand en werd gegeven door verschillende goede leraren. Naast de lessen werd bovendien een aantal leuke activiteiten in de mooie omgeving verzorgd. Het was gezellig en het fijne was: niets moet, alles mag. Ik heb ervan genoten!

"Echt een yoga VAKANTIE"

De gemengde groep, zowel qua afkomst, leeftijd en ervaringen. De locatie was fijn; aan het strand, prima hotel en yogaschool om de hoek. In het programma is veel verschillende keuze, ruimte voor wensen en er is ook nog ruimte voor een excursie.


from Netherlands, November 2017

"I give the permission to publish the review and judgment"

Anouk and Collin were personally very much involved. They did everything to fullfill your wishes for this holiday.

The diversity of the programm made every day different. In this way it is for beginners also a nice introduction to different kind of activities/sports.

"Totalmente Recomendable! Un placer haberlas disfrutado."

El lugar, la estupenda organización, implicación y atención personalizada de los organizadores en el momento de la llegada y desde que reservas el retiro!! . El sitio y hotel espectacular, su amplitud, servicios, proximidad a la playa y a la sala de yoga y actividades. La variedad de clases y actividades entre las que puedes escoger con toda libertad. El ser un retiro con mayor asistencia de personas de habla inglesa de diferentes países, asi como clases impartidas mayormente en inglés, me permitió practicar y mejorar mi inglés con una inmersion durante 5 días. Las visitas y excursiones espectaculares y un tiempo de lujo! La atencion del personal del restaurante tambien fue estupenda. Repetiré.

Patricia Sarmento

"Unforgettable holiday !"

Freedom is the key word of this special holiday thanks to 2 great hosts, Anouk & Colin that will always ensure that you are having a good time! If you fancy attending great yoga, pilates, tai-chi and many other classes either in a beautiful studio, by the beach, or on a rooftop in a very charming environment; or simply doing whatever you feel like, such as swimming in the sea and relaxing by the beach the whole day, this holiday is for you ! No limitations, only unforgettable moments !

Natalya Dyer

from Great Britain, March 2018

"A lovely week of activities with a friendly crowd"

What a fantastic week. I loved the choice of activities. I'm not massively into yoga, so it was great not to be on a serious yoga retreat! Instead, I did lots of pilates, kickboxing, meditation and even tried salsa. There was a good balance of activities and time just to do your own thing. The excursions were great too, but mainly it was the company. Lots of different guests - all ages and from all over the world to get to know over classes and meals. So it was pretty social, but completely relaxed.

Food wise, I thought the hotel buffet was fine. I mean it catered for a more traditional/older crowd, so don't expect quinoa and lentils or anything trendy, but there was always a cold salad buffet and various meat/fish and veg options and a selection of fruit/desserts. They catered for gluten free diets too, providing gluten free bread rolls and croissants at breakfast. Otherwise there was plenty of choice at breakfast - oats, cereal, yoghurts, breads, cooked breakfast, fruit etc.

I liked the room too - it seemed spacious and had a nice sea view, but I was glad that I'd paid extra to have my own. It was good to be able to spread out and I was often popping back to get changed for different activities. The sunbeds on the roof terrace were great too.

Loved the classes, trying new things, the juicing, meditation, both Anouk and Colin were fantastic, friendly and super helpful. Definitely want to go back!

Nikki Plummer

I had an absolutely amazing time on this retreat, Anouk and Colin were both incredible helpful and friendly, and made us feel right at home straight away.

The selection of activities was great, and it was nice to have options of different types of things to do, and also the option of doing nothing and lying on the beach!

The area was lovely, the hotel is right on the beach, all the rooms have sea views and the scenery is amazing.

I also absolutely loved doing the excursions to the lighthouse and the nearby towns.

Laura Mathieson

from Great Britain, October 2017

"Wonderful holiday"

I can honestly say I liked everything about this holiday. I especially enjoyed the schedule of great things to do and variation of classes available. The yoga classes were fantastic and the studio is a lovely space. It was also lovely to practice yoga on the rooftop and the beach, surrounded by amazing views.

In addition to yoga, it was great to try some new things I hadn't done before such as Self-Defence, Thai Chi and Pilates.

The friendly and welcoming atmosphere created by the hosts went well beyond my expectations,nothing was too much trouble for them. Anouk goes above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and all of the additional touches and excursions in the surrounding area make it really special.

I'd definitely recommend this holiday and plan to go back with friends next year.

Karen Mckay

"Yoga YoP"

The whole yoga holiday experience was brilliant from start to finish; the range and choice of yoga was excellent and doing yoga outdoors, on the beach and on the roof was wonderful. The yoga studio was really lovely and the hotel is right on the beach and was nice and clean. The socializing was great fun; meeting different nationalities and talking with different yoga teachers. However, without a doubt a surprise bonus was; Anouk and Colin making the experience extra memorable and bringing every aspect together very nicely. They made everyone welcome and made us all feel very well looked after.
