A Lifestyle Transformation
The brainchild of three avid health fanatics and boot camp experts, this haven of fitness from the inside out will eat you up and spit you out feeling brand spanking new.
Not being shy to a detox or two we rocked up here intrigued knowing that every single one is different.
Set in a stunning villa north of the island, high up in the hills with a view overlooking the San Joan valley dotted with horses, pine trees and breathtaking views of the distant sea, it screams luxury escape rather than fitness retreat.
After a very warm welcome from the glowing Kate Whale who is headhoncho, you step in to what feels like a home (a pretty chic home with traditional wooden beams holding up double heighted ceilings). It’s easy not to want to leave this place with it’s Ibiza style Balearic vibe with a modern touch.
The open plan kitchen makes for a great family vibe, and the culinary variety got us excited with each meal time. Organic home grown master pieces will have your body screaming for more.
A typical day has you energised and pumped in the mornings with a 7am hike as your start to the day followed by a tidy flow of intense fitness classes with treat breaks of healthy snacks and takes a slower pace come the afternoon, with yoga, meditation and swimming. It’s the perfect combination at the perfect pace.
Tantric Yoga with Ayda was a mind blowing experience where we achieved a sense of calm like never before. Stretching and gentle movements that are openly explained she has a way of making you feel at ease no matter what level of yogi you are. All to a hypnotizing soundtrack to help you stay centered her class was like a little piece of heaven. More of this please!
To top it all off after a full day’s fat busting and booty bouncing happy campers get to choose a movie to watch on the big outdoor screen to relax before bedtime. Zzzz…

Good news folks! After each session there’s enough time to scoot off for a dip in the enticing mineral rich saltwater infinity pool or lie in the Spanish sunshine to get some rays on that white aching booty of yours. Thank f**k for that. You’ll be needing this. Trust us!
