You will be staying at a chic, boutique hotel in the heart of Alfama. It is considered by wallpaper® magazine as one of the "48 new world's best urban hotels in 2014."

You will love the way the hotel makes you feel right at home with a variety of books to borrow in the living room, plus warm and soothing tones in each room with high-quality linens, natural wood floors, and polished cement bathrooms stocked with Portuguese bath products. Post-afternoon yoga, grab a glass of wine on the terrace and enjoy sweeping views of the city and Tagus River. There will be both single rooms and rooms with twin beds for those preferring to share accommodations.

Enjoy twice daily invigorating Ashtanga flow and Power yoga sessions, each runs for 75 to 90 minutes, in a special studio walking distance from the hotel. Your host and instructor, Shari, will guide you through daily strengthening and invigorating Vinyasa and core lessons in the morning and late afternoon.

All of Sole Yoga Holidays' yoga retreats are open to all-levels, but some yoga experience is recommended to fully enjoy the practice. All equipment is included as well so you have more room in your luggage for treasures!
