During this retreat, you will be staying in a family-run and hosted villa with a sun terrace and pool, set a short walk from Moraira and the beach. The villa offers separate guest accommodations with a sitting room, dining area, and guest kitchen for making drinks and snacks.
Depending on the rooms booked, there are choices of single room, twin room with private use showers, or a double room with en-suite. If you book a shared room, you will also share a bath or shower room. You may only book a shared room if you have a friend or partner who will come to the retreat with you.
Please note that currently, there is an intermittent building work adjacent to the retreat. You may hear some noise from the construction.
The yoga classes will usually be held in the mornings on the beach. On kayaking days, the yoga may be held later in the day. Although yoga is held everyday, Yoga Retreats Spain cannot guarantee that you will be able to partake during the travel days because your departure times will dictate when you can leave. Meals are usually taken at the villa but you may have a packed lunch, so guests can stay out most of the day.
Three kayaking excursions are included in the price of this retreat.

During the holiday, a variety of traditional home cooked food will be served daily, freshly prepared by the hosts. The daily meals may consist of salmon, chicken, beef mince, pasta, or rice along with fresh vegetables and salads, or a vegetarian option. There is only one daily meal option, but the hosts will always consult with everyone upon arrival about their favorite foods and cook accordingly, to suit everyone in the small group.
Groups may vary and you may be the only guest. The host will keep any single guest company, should they wish, or respect their privacy for those who wish some time alone. Dinners usually consist of two courses, including a dessert. Yoga Retreat Spain will try to accommodate your dietary needs, likes, and dislikes. Vegan options, however, are regrettably unable to be accommodated.
Breakfast is on a "help yourself" style to suit each guest. This may consist of cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit, toast, and a choice of herbal teas and coffee. Drinking water is provided. Yoga Retreats Spain only asks you to wash up your own dishes after breakfast, as it can be taken at any time to suit each person.
Yoga Retreats Spain respectfully asks you to wash up and tidy after eating or preparing any snacks, drinks, or any item of food you may have purchased during your stay, every day. This is to help keep the guest kitchen tidy at all times, out of respect for others.
After all other meals, the crockery will be taken away by the villa hosts for cleaning. This enables the hosts and you to coordinate as a team, in order to move quickly together to the next activity, either by walking or by car. The hosts are very much about family, teamwork, and sharing. Please note that you cannot expect for a hotel experience during your stay in the villa.
A gentle scenic walk along one of the many coastal paths or mountain trails while enjoying the clear blue skies only the Mediterranean can offer would be a great option for you to do on your free time. Enjoy the rugged coastline or move inland for the stunning views of orange and lemon groves, whilst visiting one of the many monasteries. Marvel at the sights of watch towers or small castles along the way.
Mini treatments are available locally in Moraira by appointment. For those who wish to have a treatment, to avoid disappointment, it is strongly suggested that these are booked at the beginning of the holiday as the studio gets very busy. There are too many treatments to list here with special offers and some prices change weekly. Yoga Retreats Spain will direct you to the studio which is just a short walk from the villa.
