Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Yoga holidays in Spain

Our holidays take place at carefully chosen venues run by friendly local families and we employ many local people as our guides, drivers, housekeepers, cooks, therapists & teachers not just because they are local, but because they are the lifeblood of the area and bring local colour and information that you'll not find in guidebooks.

Our local team help our holidays come alive but, in the cold light of day, we realise we help to keep local families together because, without (y)our support, these families could have to separate & move away to find work elsewhere.

Energy & Recycling: We run our business efficiently, recycling all waste material & using natural resources as sparingly as possible. All guests are encouraged to act responsibly by minimising their use of electricity, recycle waste packaging and in specifying when they need fresh towels. All water taps & toilets have been fitted with a device to reduce water flow, low energy light bulbs have been installed and hotel rubbish is recycled according to local authority policies.

Supporting Local Charities: We support two local charities with donations from our profit; a donkey sanctuary that cares for old or abandoned donkeys and a Home for children who are at risk.

Building Restoration: In the construction & renovation of the hotels, natural local materials where used and existing features preserved rather than replaced.

Food: We serve typical local dishes with virtually all ingredients being grown or caught locally. This not only minimises packaging and supports local food producers, but our meals can then maintain optimum nutrition levels, being only hours from the ground/sea to the table.

Culture: We encourage guests to explore & immerse themselves into the Spanish way of life by dining at local restaurants, visiting markets and buying gifts from local artisans and producers. And, if there’s a local festival … everyone’s invited to immerse themselves and taste the Spanish’s love of fiestas!

Reviews of Yoga holidays in Spain

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


I enjoyed a lovely summer yoga holiday in Spain recently. I attended the "Go with the Flow summer Yoga retreat". Everything about this holiday was great! . I'm very new to yoga but this particular holiday seemed to meet the needs of people with varying levels of experience including some who were very accomplished yoga practitioners. The yoga instruction given by Nicole was excellent and she was able to support those of us with little experience while challenging others to go further. We stayed in a lovely hotel-with plenty of Spanish charm and I got to meet a great bunch of people from different parts of the globe. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the beautiful old town if Altea-full of character and charm. Nicole who was running the course made sure through out the week that everyone was enjoying their experience. Along with the yoga there were various optional activities on offer which really added to the experience. I chose to do a guided bike ride and a sunset kayak trip- both stunning!! So I couldn't pick a "most memorable part" of the holiday except to say - a great location, excellent tuition, a friendly and welcoming atmosphere -what more could you ask for?!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


I would definitely recommend doing at least some yoga classes before you go -this will greatly enhance your experience. If you have any doubts about whether this holiday "is for you" just email Nicole and she will go through your concerns with you. I found that she responded to my enquiries quickly and gave me all the information which I needed to make the decision about whether to go on this particular holiday or not. Personally I thought that this was a lovely mixture of holiday and yoga -and hour and a half of really good yoga instruction each day and plenty of time to do other things also. ( there was also the facility for people to do more yoga individually later in the day if they wished)

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


yes I think that this holiday supported the local community. It was held in a traditional family run hotel and our group frequented local restaurants/shops etc. in the evenings.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a complete break and change of scene. I would actually like to go on this holiday again at a future date!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The accommodation, the location, the yoga studio, the group itself, the views and the great breakfast.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Altea is beautiful but has lots of hills and steps, and the old town has cobbled streets. Bring suitable footwear.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I think we gave work to the local people at the hotel and in the restaurants/shops in the town.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Great. For me it was a journey away from the stress of my "normal" life to a relaxing place due in the main part to Nicole's caring attitude.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Great yoga in a lovely environment. The mixture of yoga with hiking in the hills made it a perfect holidays. Plus a hot stone massage to top it up!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Take a couple of days extra to visit the area, it is a beautiful part of Spain

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


All activities involved local people - meals, hiking, massages....

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Great holiday, would recommend it highly to anyone who wants to switch off for a few days and relax.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


This holiday was one that will last forever in my heart & soul. My first yoga holiday but definitely not the last, I hope to book again with same company. I suppose one thing that stands out most is the organiser's genuine love of what they do and they care they show for every customer.


2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Simply book it! After that, prepare yourself for the bliss that will come.
The organisers give customers a lot of really helpful tips & detail in what to expect and what to bring.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes. All guest teachers, massage therapists, biking guides etc are local people and were worthy of high recommendation.
The hotel is family run and the food is fresh and local.
The organisers encouraged guests to shop & eat locally, in personally known/recommended establishments.


4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Fantastic!
I am torn between 4 & 5 stars as I have been on some really amazing holidays!
This one was not with my husband & kids which is altogether unique, which in that context and given my love for yoga has only increased because of the trip I'll go for 'reborn' ;-)

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The yoga fit holiday was a great mix of fitness activities. Although I did not expect to, I enjoyed the body toning. But the yoga stood out as the most memorable of the activities.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Be prepared for an emphasis on minimum tea/coffee/meat and fish products. Make sure you have a reasonable level of fitness before you go.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Local people benefited from money spent on activities such as walking, cycling and body toning as they were delivered by locals.
Massages were also provided by locals. All activities had a low to nil environmental impact!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was well worth it. I'd give it 8 out of 10 for setting, hotel, activities and food.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Doing yoga and enjoying the beach in the afternoon and the lovely scenery, and having met some truly lovely people at the retreat.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


To enjoy the beautiful beach and walking around the town, also to visit Senza if they are in the mood of hitting the town in the evening for a fancy cocktail.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, it is great to support the locals by eating out and buying the lovely clothes or jewellery they have to offer.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Great! just wish it had been longer than 6 days, 10 days would have been perfect.

We're happy to accommodate any requests for a longer stay on any of our retreats. If clients tell us early enough we will make the necessary arrangements/reservations for them - no problem.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Great yoga in a lovely light and quiet studio within the hotel courtyard. Interesting hotel that wasn't far away from the beach, marina, tapas bars and lovely restaurants. Lots of time to do the beach, shopping, hike, treatments and eating out. Denia is a lovely resort.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Make sure you take suitable walking shoes/sandals for hike - your feet will appreciate it or take lots of plasters! Try to ensure your flights match the pick up times - it will save you money and worries about how to get to Denia.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes. Traditional Spanish hotel that used products and equipment that was ecological. Staff were all local and had been working there for years - a good sign I think. Local restaurants that we used were family run and very generous with time and service. Local products were bought and sampled to encourage us to buy ourselves.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


I would definitely go again. Already looking at Nicole and Gary's Altea holiday.

Reviewed on 26 Jun 2011 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Getting to know the charming town of Denia which had a very Spanish feel to it. Enjoying the sunshine, the weather was great during the holiday. The beach was lovely and not too busy. People on the holiday were friendly & it was interesting to have people from different countries there also. Enjoyed the yoga sessions however found the two classes a day a bit restrictive for doing other things during the day, one session in the morning would probably have been enough for me.
Colour workshop & reflexology treatments were very good as was the guided walk and meal out at a local restaurant. Inhouse food was good also & I liked the fact it was all vegetarian.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


I was very much looking forward to staying in an art boutique hotel & during my stay I found the majority of the hotel to be lovely. I was however very disappointed on my arrival when given a courtyard room with a very strong smell of damp. I immediately asked for another room but was told there were no other rooms available until Sunday (this was Thursday). I agreed to try airing the room as suggested however after staying for one night and feeling physically sick as a result of the damp smell I asked to be moved. In total I moved rooms four times during my stay once to another hotel as there was no availability on the Saturday night in Chamarel. The room in Chamarel I stayed in on three of the nights was a lovely room but having to move in to it and then out to another hotel and then back again was not conducive to feeling settled and relaxed on holiday.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


The hotel employed local people who were friendly and hard working. We ate out at a local restaurant and used local shops/cafes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


There were many positive aspects to this holiday as I have mentioned above however as a result of the room difficulties I experienced I won’t be returning.

Read the operator's response here:

Firstly, we'd like to thank you Dorothy for this honest review & we're so pleased that you liked everything about the holiday except the room you stayed in on the first night. Obviously, like you, we weren't expecting you not like your room & so it was an initial challenge to find you another room at the Hotel Chamarel when it was fully booked!

However, apart from one night when we had to accommodate you at the hotel around the corner, we're delighted that we were able to upgrade you to a gorgeous junior suite at the Hotel Chamarel with an opulent sunken bath for the remainder of your stay. The final point we'd like to make is that we are sad you gave the holiday a 1 star rating as we do not feel this reflects your overall positive comments.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


For me, the most memorable part of the holiday was the hotel where I stayed. It is a beautiful homely hotel, welcoming with plenty to explore. The staff are friendly and helpful, each room is different.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Think carefully before booking the extras! 5 days was not really enough time to unwind and relax, it is easy to fill your time with activities instead of taking some time to yourself to be still and just 'be' which is an important part of the holiday. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed all the activities and classes.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Apart from bringing trade to the area, I'm not really sure that there was any benefit to the locals, but with a yoga holiday there isn't a great deal that will benefit local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


It was a great holiday and certainly one that I won't forget in a long time. My only criticism is that the group was split between 2 hotels and 2 'groups' for classes, which made communicating details (such as class times and venues) a little hit and miss -that said, I was holidaying during the air traffic strikes, which did place a lot of extra burdens on the organisers and lead to changes needing to be made sometimes at last minute.

Read the operator's response here:

Just wanted to say firstly, thanks Joanne for being such a great sport and understanding that the air traffic controllers strike placed a huge burden on the organisation of the holiday, particularly the extremely late arrival of some guests due to flight cancellations. There were guests arriving throughout the first 3 days of the break.

Secondly, we would like to mention to other travellers considering our holidays that Joanne came on our Yoga & Pilates holiday where we have a larger group. On these breaks, the yoga & pilates classes - max. of 11 per class - are taught at two beautiful venues 3 min walk apart. Normally, our "yoga only" holidays - ie. no pilates - there is max. of 12 per holiday. Everyone stays at the same gorgeous hotel that Joanne mentions & this is where all yoga classes take place.

Denia was a lovely place for our yoga trip - authentic Spanish feel, with something for everyone - beach, historic castle, good shopping, restaurants etc. Gary and Nicole were very committed to ensuring that we had a relaxing time, providing enjoyable yoga classes, guided walks, and various therapies. I think that the most memorable part for me is the calm and relaxed way the holiday has left me feeling!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Book early! They seem to be getting many "returners"- and I am not surprised !

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


We stayed in a lovely local family run hotel in the old quarter; recycling and minimal washing of towels was encouraged, and lights were on timers etc. The lovely staff were all locals, although the therapists and Thai masseur were "expats".

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Most enjoyable, relaxing and energising at the same time! Only downside for me was the difficulty getting to and from Denia by public transport - you really have no option but to use taxis - which were expensive.

In September this year I had the most energizing experience with like minded people whilst on a 5 day Yoga break which has rekindled my interest in practising Yoga regularly.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Have an open mind about the additional therapies which are available and try something new.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


We stayed at a the Hotel Chamerol in Demia, which I would never have found on my own but it was absolutely charming in an old fashioned way but had all the modern conveniences necessary not to mention the resident artist and all her wonderful paintings. She and her husband own the hotel, not only is it their business but also their home and it felt like you were within a home and not just a hotel. Being smack bang in the middle of old Demia meant that you experienced the history and soul of the place too, and the only "miles" travelling once you unpack are "on foot" miles.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Brilliant I will definately be back.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


For me the best part of the holiday was the meditation session. It was completely new for me and quite amazing - something I shall pursue. Otherwise I would say that the town of Denia was so tranquil, and the people so kind and nice and friendly it felt like home from home.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Take a travel kettle to make cups of tea!! - we all really missed being able to have a cup of tea and take some transportable foods - ie fruit and nut bars etc., as these not available and there is a long time between the two meals, which were not especially tasty, but I know that Nicole is working on improving this.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


I hope that this is the case. I tried to buy locally made items to take home, but they were difficult to find. Hopefully we didn’t impact too much on their environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


The holiday was lovely but like all wonderful holidays too short! The hotels and their staff were superb, nothing was too much trouble especially at the Nou Roma where I was. The town was beautiful, so clean and as I said before all were so welcoming. I would have liked a swimming pool but it was a small thing. I enjoyed the Yoga and the Pilates, although at beginner level, allowed me to go back and re-examine my positions. I would highly recommend this holiday to anyone interested in understanding Yoga/Pilates/Meditation.

Just wanted to say in reply to Wendy's notes...

Re: The meals... We too were disappointed with some of the vegetarian dishes the chef chose to prepare on this holiday. His normal flair & passion seemed to be amiss this time - I guess everyone has their "off" days. However, not one's to rest on our laurels; we have already met with him and have an 'all new menu plan' which will be rolled out on the very next holiday. Thank you Wendy though for letting us know, we truly cannot improve unless we have honest feedback.

Re: Impact on local environment... We have an environmental policy which includes details on how we work to minimize ours & our guests’ impact on the environment. The policy is easily accessible to all guests - we tell them where it is located - but we let them read it at their leisure rather than reading it verbatim to them.
