Accommodation & food

Accommodation & food

More than just a retreat, this is your journey. Nestled amongst volcanoes, rolling hills and windmills, with breathtaking ocean vistas, you’ll find this retreat, a rejuvenating and unique mix of: yoga and pilates classes, meditation, vegetarian cousine and sunny days. 

In the garden you can find a large pool surrounded by sunbeds, hammock and several patios. If you want to go to Corralejo and the beaches there is a bus stop nearby with departures to Corralejo every hour. Around the retreat you can find nice walking paths and only 5 minutes walk from the retreat you can find two nice restaurants, a bakery and a small store. 

You can choose to stay in a shared double/twin room or a single room, depending on your preference. All rooms have different decoration but all based on Spanish style. There are some rooms with ensuite bathroom and some with shared bathroom. 

All meals are vegetarian, with a mix of vegan and glutenfree options. They are composed and cooked by the retreats own chef and nutrisionist Jo, who is also a pilates instructor. She uses natural sweeteners in the food, whole wheat products, homemade bread, as little lactose as possible, healthy fat and a lot of seeds and asian spices. Every day you will be served breakfast, light lunch and dinner.

Surf package

Surf package

This package includes three days surfing (equipment, wetsuits, beach transfers and expert tuition included).

Please note, surf courses run based on the best conditions for you to learn in (tides, wind etc). This may mean you will miss one of the two daily classes at the lodge or retreat. When you sign up for the package, it does take into account you may miss one class on your surf days – not to worry – there are always 2 daily classes and the surf days are often 4+ hours so you will be getting plenty of activity and value for money.

The surf classes and courses are provided by International Surfing Association (ISA) and British Surfing Association (BSA) qualified instructors, who have spent many years on the island sharing their passion for the sport and Fuerteventura’s waves. Surfing classes and courses are available for all abilities and levels, from absolute beginners to aspiring pros. Go surfing for a day or take a course – see below for more details.

Please note the surf pick up time is dependent on the tide for the best learning conditions – this may mean missing a morning or afternoon class or leaving class a little early. We have extra classes in our schedule to compensate for this (some days with three classes daily). The course is planned so you have plenty of action but still have energy to enjoy your week – just leave it to us to arrange a great holiday for you!

The benefits of yoga and Pilates for surf

The benefits of both yoga and Pilates for surfing performance include increasing:

Flexibility
Strength – especially core strength from Pilates
Body awareness and synergy
Fluidity of movement
Stamina
Many of surfing’s greats now include yoga and/or Pilates in their training regimes. Head Pilates Instructor and surfer, Jamie Isaac’s list of clients includes many surfers and kitesurfing enthusiasts, including World Tournament and multiple British Kitesurf Champion, Danny Seales.

No one gets left behind…

Why not come with a partner and each have your ideal holiday without having to compromise? Have the guilt-free freedom to go off surfing while your partner is enjoying yoga, Pilates and spa treatments (or have the guilt-free freedom to enjoy yoga, Pilates and spa treatments while your partner goes surfing!) Whichever way you look at it, everyone’s happy!

You can easily carbon offset your trip directly with us when you complete your booking, and you will immediately see what it costs. We collaborate with the organisation GoCLimateNeutral and the amount goes to replacing wood and coal stoves for solar-powered fireplaces in the Chinese countryside in an UN-certified climate project that has the Gold Standard certification. If you want to dive deeper into the climate compensation, you can find more info here.

Information from the retreat owner

"When you are ready to travel, to join together with us to play, learn, laugh and grow… our team will be waiting for you ready to welcome you to our safe, and clean paradise retreat, your home from home.

We very much look forward to welcoming and serving you all with gratitude and warmth. 

Even though travel has been a much-impacted service globally, it’s heartening to see that there is still a demand to re-energize, restore, and to retreat with us, relying on the quality, care, and certainty that the retreat represents.

Since we have our very own retreat center, we are able to control all aspects of your experience from cleaning, sanitation to measures for social distancing, and optimizing your health and wellbeing.”

– Jamie & Karissa, owners & founders

Flexible Booking

We have introduced new options to provide additional travel planning flexibility and security during this time. If you hold a booking with us  and any of the following scenarios apply to you:

  1. You have travel restrictions in place from your home country
  2. You have had your flight canceled
  3. You are an essential worker
  4. You do not feel comfortable traveling at this time

We are offering all guests flexible rebooking through 2021 or vouchers to use when they feel comfortable to travel again. We are also offering fully refundable bookings for additional peace of mind, if you cannot find dates for rebooking or future travel. 

Enhanced Safety & Standards

We are uniquely able to establish, monitor, and oversee our own protocols for all aspects of retreat life, and are able to restrict and control any access onto our property and grounds. This helps us to confidently restore and maintain a safe, calm, and relaxing environment.

We have developed site-specific best practice protocols and implemented them into weekly use. We have additional distancing measures and health checks to these protocols to guarantee your safety.

We are committed to making you feel safe and comfortable when you stay with us.

Guest arrival

Prior to arrival, we check in with guests to ensure they are in good health (i.e. asymptomatic) before traveling. On arrival, in addition to our normal warm greeting, we check each guest’s temperature with a no-touch thermometer to ensure your safe arrival. We have also moved all arrival paperwork online so you don’t have to worry about that; you can settle in and decompress.

We will require a negative COVID-19 test from 14 November 2020 at check in per Canary Islands Mandate. 

Cleaning

Our cleaning team now devotes more time than before to comprehensively deep clean your room, complying with new guidelines from the WHO. This includes using approved disinfectant products and a more detailed/enhanced protocol for cleaning common surfaces such as doorknobs, handles, countertops, and light switches. Steam cleaning will be used on curtains and rugs.

We can also provide masks and gloves to you on request. Please reach out to us beforehand if you have any allergies so we can carefully prepare your room with the correct protocol, avoiding any irritants or allergens, and also ensure you receive the care and attention you deserve individually.

Food & Dining

Our kitchen team has stopped our buffet offering for the time being to instead offer plated meals presented to you beautifully, individually, to minimise contact. Second servings on new plates will be available for those of you who know and love our delicious meals!

In addition, we are running with lower occupancy in the coming months so we can practice safe distancing, and enjoy our retreat spaces with peace of mind knowing that we are all in this together.

Classes & Practice Spaces

We limit the capacity of our group classes to meet standards. Sessions will be held with social distancing in place.

If indoor sessions are necessary, they will run at the correct capacities, with plenty of ventilation. We have a HEPA air filter in our indoor studio space. Personal mats and blankets will be provided for your stay.

We will ask students to not come to classes if they present any symptoms during their stay, including fever, cough and sore throat. This will allow us to care for each individual should any issue arise during the week.

Pool and Hot tub

The swimming pool and hot tub occupancy are reduced; the hot tub occupancy will be for one guest at a time or for guests who have traveled together in the first phase of reopening. We have a third party service that regularly check the pool and hot tub to certify their safety.

We have been maintaining the pool throughout at the levels of Chlorine recommended by the WHO: The World Health Organization recommends a chlorination level of 15mg.min/liter; this is sufficient to kill non-enveloped viruses such as poliovirus, rotavirus, and coxsackievirus, and an enveloped virus such as Covid-19 would be inactivated at even lower levels of chlorination.
