About the location

Set between stunning mountain scenery with sandy beaches just a 10 minute walk away, the luxury complex where you’ll stay lies in the ‘green triangle’ of the Costa Blanca between the towns of Calpe, Moraira and Benissa and is just an hour’s drive from Alicante airport.

The luxury retreat is based around the design of a Mediterranean plaza with apartments situated around a central lagoon, landscaped gardens looking out over the sea and surrounding green landscape, and the retreat offers guests privacy, security and tranquillity and is the ideal setting for a rejuvenating and relaxing all inclusive health & wellness holiday.

The retreat offers you an enjoyable detox experience which focuses on motivating and educating you towards a healthier lifestyle using a more holistic approach compared to the military boot camp style holidays. This is a unique approach to wellness but one where you’ll still see fantastic results.

A short 10 minute stroll will take you to the beautiful local beach – a pretty stretch of sand divided in two the by the soaring mass of the Ifach De Penon, a national park, complete with its own 330 metre mountain. From the beach you can enjoy several nature walks along the coastal paths which offer the perfect place to admire the stunning coastline.

The bustling town of Calpe is just the other side of this peninsula and is located a 20-30 minute walk away from the complex. The town has an array of shops and restaurants, though all food and drink will be provided at the complex, and there is a supermarket a short walk away. The town of Moraira used to be an old fishing village but has now developed into a lively town and is situated just 9km from the retreat if you wanted to explore the local area.

The complex is a recently built residential area and boasts luxury apartments, the detox retreat reserves 16 private apartments to ensure a more intimate holiday where hosts can focus on each guest’s needs throughout their stay. As the retreats take place out of high season, the complex remains a secluded relaxing environment but with the added benefits of a central plaza area with large attractive lagoon pool, pretty outdoor terrace areas, private restaurant with formal dining area, private gym, wellbeing spa including sauna, steam room, indoor and outdoor swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and facilities for massage and wellbeing treatments.

The private complex has been designed with the environment in mind; with special energy saving lighting in the apartments that turn off when no one is home, recycling, automatic roller blinds once it’s dark, and an eco-friendly water system to reuse water for plants and vegetation.

Each guest has sole use of their own luxury private apartment suite, and every apartment has either 1 or 2 double bedrooms with spacious bathroom, private terrace or balcony, large lounge area with flat screen TV, satellite, granite kitchen, and all are equipped with air conditioning ensuring maximum comfort and relaxation. Free WiFi is available both inside and outside the apartments.

Your hosts are a growing team of professionals with a wealth of health, fitness and wellness knowledge and experience. Yoga & Pilates instructors, personal trainers, a nutritionist, osteopath, nurse & acupuncturist, life coach, counsellor & psychologist, 5 spa therapists, retreat host, and doctor, all work together with the common goal to ensure guests leave the retreat not just feeling healthier and fitter but with a deeper understanding of how to make positive changes towards a healthier you.

She is also joined by Doctor Maria and Marco.

The classes and activities utilise the spacious sunny terraces of the complex, the private gym facilities, the local beach and stunning natural landscape. Yoga is normally held in either the dedicated yoga & pilates room, or on one of the sunny terraces.
