The most memorable part of the holiday was the life coaching that we had and, a fantastic highlight, the excursion to the elephant sanctuary. (more)Kirsten Stolz
From £745 excluding flights

Yoga holiday in Portugal
Wouldn't change a thing! One of the most memorable parts of my holiday was staying in a beautiful odega! Away from the call and drive of modern technology! Secreted in our own romantic stone retreat in the hills of Portugal. (more)Michael Collett
Fantastic...So many highlights - the yoga of course, the food, the treatments and the landscape - and perhaps the relaxed atmosphere fostered by the team. (more)Sinead Mooney
Excellent...it does what it says on the tin! ...and the food and massages were amazing! (more)Debra Butler
From €650 - €800 excluding flights
Yoga & relaxation holiday in Portugal
It was amazing and fabulous and life changing. One of the best holidays I have ever been on, I just wish it could have been longer!! (more)Rosy Everitt
This would be a perfect and highly recommendable holiday if you're: interested in nurturing your mind and body by yoga and healthy tasty food...The love and warmth of the Winter family made you directly feel at ease and at home. The yoga classes were of good quality and inspiring. Loved the silent walks in the morning. (more)Jasmijn Visser
So many memories and amazing times. Probably the most exciting was swimming in fast flowing rivers and waterfalls around the house! ...A brilliant holiday and I'd definitely go back. (more)Laura Chan
From €650 - €800 excluding flights

From €650 excluding flights

The surroundings are beautiful, the accomodation is clean, homely and comfortable with everything you could need (shower gel, shampoo, herbal teas, books, DVDs etc etc), Namit and Maru are friendly and welcoming and Anna the chef is beyond amazing, her food is incredibly tasty, healthy and just wonderful - I cannot say enough good things about it!

From £689 excluding flights
Luxury anti ageing health retreat in Spain
Brilliant! It’s exactly what a lot of women need during stressful times and it’s a fantastic environment to make friends and support other people. There were lots of memorable aspects but the two things that stand out were the varied mixture of activities in the programme, and the cohesion of the group and tutors alike. (more)Jita Shah
The food was absolutely delicious and we were never hungry which was quite a surprise for a detox holiday. The exercise program was just perfect and you could do as much or as you felt able to. The treatments in the SPA were excellent. All around it was a fantastic holiday. (more)Sari Winckworth
From £998 excluding flights
Fitness holidays & fitness courses in Kenya
Crawling like a crocodile on the sand, and my failed attempt to climb a tree, stick out in my mind. It's provided a lot of comic fodder to my friends when I tell the stories. I LOVED boxing, the food was absolutely delicious and just seeing the "before and after" videos of myself was very motivational. (more)Tania Zwicky
Go for it, you will discover a different (and fun) way to do fitness in a beautiful environment and spirit. (more)Sandrine de La Pommeraye
Just book it! You will not regret it for one moment! I have never got so much out of a two week trip in my life. Beautiful scenery, great exercise, super food, luxury accommodation and a refreshing new take on local culture and environment. (more)Karen O'Mahony
From £2150 excluding flights
Life coaching in Ireland

From €140 - €280 excluding flights
Sintra Natural Park retreats & walks in Portugal
Really enjoyed staying at the guesthouse. Hospitality was amazing. James was there with good information regarding where to find plants and books and help plan days out. (more)Lynne Samuel
The most memorable parts were the lovely countryside (red-tiled roofs, etc.), the beautiful historic towns to visit (Lisbon, Sintra, Coimbra, Obidos...) and the marvellous breakfasts (really brunches) cooked up by Aasta. I also appreciated the many nice little touches (not expected in a B&B) - a bathrobe, fresh fruit and little chocolates in the room every day... (more)Joanne Deller
The whole holiday was memorable, the place itself was beautiful overlooking the sea and surrounding countryside... We met some lovely people at the accommodation and recommend it for a bed and breakfast holiday in a lovely region of Portugal. (more)Jane Freemantle
From €490 - €1000 excluding flights
Yoga and Pilates holiday in Spain
Memorable parts? The super yoga and pilates classes and the lovely 12k coastal walk. Tips? The taxi from Alicanti to Denia was expensive at 120E, but was much quicker than a 2 hour bus trip where you have to take one bus to Benidorm, wait there half an hour and take another bus to Denia, cost about 20E, but alot of hassle travelling on your own. Local benefits? definitly benefitted local shops and resturants Overall rating? EXCELLANT (more)Lorna FitzGerald
From £685 excluding flights
Portugal yoga holiday, Iyengar retreat
The combination of the very warm welcome, excellent teaching and the wonderful food...All the elements were carefully put together with experience and a real commitment to the well being of the quests. The location was beautiful too. (more)Ros Morpeth
Excellent..Great food. A relaxing holiday in good company (more)Roger Elston-Green
A wonderful enriching experience...The Quinta and surrounding land was like paradise in August; flowers and fruit in abundance, and one got a sense of it being a special, loved place. (more)liz bailey
From €755 excluding flights
Portugal yoga & Thai massage holiday
Excellent...perfect in so many ways. . There is an energy that runs through the place and you feel connected every waking moment; as you find a quiet moment by one of the water pools, or take a walk with one of the dogs, attending a yoga class, enjoying a good night’s sleep. It’s a healing place like no other. (more)sophia Hannay
Very enjoyable, very relaxing - I got some new experiences and insights! (more)Sabine Kalke
Definitely to be recommended...The combination of Yoga and acupuncture treatments was extremely beneficial and unique and the hosts were caring and thoughtful. The food was fantastic, fresh and plentiful. (more)Katherine Wood
From €650 excluding flights
Portugal yoga & massage holiday
Excellent! This is a holiday for people who want or need to offer time to themselves, stepping out of their daily life for a week and literally cleansing their body on every level, whether physically, mentally or spiritually. (more)georgina porro
The holistic integrated nature of it and the range of activities included. Great yoga, treatments, food and classes. I had a wonderful bedroom with a picture window looking out on the valley which raised my mood every time I looked out. It was a little like childhood holidays going to visit family for the warmth of the welcome. (more)Margaret Grogan
From €650 excluding flights
Yoga, kayaking & snorkelling holidays in Spain
Memorable parts? The fantastic hotel we stayed at and the lovely small touches provided by the girls running the holiday Tips? Its a lovely hotel so booking an extra day or 2 is a great idea. The yoga is not very challenging so if you're very serious about you're yoga practice you may find it frustrating. Local benefits? Yes- it was a locally run small hotel which employed local people. The girls also tried to reduce environmental impact by recycling water bottles. Overall... (more)Tania Constable
From €625 - €695 excluding flights
Yoga & ayurveda holiday in Portugal
Memorable parts? I had such an amazing time at Yoga at Moses, I don't think I could pinpoint my favourite moment, but the things that stood out the most were: the beautiful morning walks and yoga sessions overlooking the valley, the copious amounts of delicious, nutritious food, with loads of variety at every meal, the completely horizontal feeling of relaxation at Moses and the welcoming and accepting attitudes of the Winter family. Tips? Just come as you are and be open to being... (more)Holly Parker
From €650 excluding flights

From start to finish my holiday was amazing...This really was a life changing holiday, one of the best times of my life. (more)Patricia Lloyd

From €450 - €750 per cabin per week (sleeps 4-6)
Christchurch self catering cottage, New Zealand
Memorable parts? finding little deserted spots - less-visited beaches; an out-of-the-way river. And all the outdoors activities New Zealand offers. Tips? I can't really think of any 'warning' type tips - everything was made very easy and pleasant for us by the hosts, who were efficient and helpful and offered lots of good suggestions for activities. So I guess I'd suggest asking local people for the best things to do. Oh, and use the i-sites - tourist info sites in all cities and... (more)Natalie Kirschstein
