Each of the seven villa hotel suites and double rooms are uniquely furnished with a great sense of creativity, combining traditional style with an artistic modern twist, creating a cool contemporary chic atmosphere and magical ambiance. Each suite has individual special features, such as a large private Finnish Sauna, jacuzzi with amazing views, large old Fireplace, huge panoramic terraces, and even a romantic Four Poster Bed under rustic old wood beams.

Program

After the social distancing and uncertain situation that many are facing, The Urban Villa wanted to reach out to bring people together when it is safe to do so. Communal living style retreats are something different to their other retreats where they encourage their guests to take a step out of their normal routine and join them for a month or more to “co-live” with likeminded individuals looking to escape and live another lifestyle with healthy foods and uplifting activities in the sunshine.

Their retreat has been adapted to the communal living style to avoid the present risks of crowded places, no need to go to public places or do your own shopping as everything can be provided for you, not staying in a large hotel where the guests change regularly, feeling safer knowing your fellow members are with you for longer which in turn encourages a lovely bonding, possible new friendships, and learning from each other through cultural aspects, discussions, healthy debates, philosophizing, anthropology, and much more depending on who comes to the table.

The Urban Villa has been taking precautions and regularly checking government guidelines in case you have further worries and if the worst scenario of another lockdown during your trip, they now have had some experience as many of their guests who got caught up in the chaos were quarantined with them, they pampered them as much as they could by putting all kinds of immune-boosting natural veggies, fruits, and superfoods in their meals in the attempt to boost their health and they have all thankfully managed to safely return to their homes.

The retreat is perfect for both males and females or if you are on your own, with a friend, your partner, or even join with a group of friends.
