The best thing I have ever done, so so glad that I did it. (more)Josie Korda
I will and have recommended this retreat to friends. I returned to work feeling refreshed and committed to making this feeling of health and inner peace last! (more)Stephanie Jones
I can not rate this retreat highly enough.The effort that is made to make sure everyone's level of yoga practice is accommodated and everyone is included. The attention to small details that make the whole experience one of healing, learning, happiness and joy.

Yoga holiday in Portugal
The trip was definitely one of most memorable and exiting holidays I have ever had. Nothing was short of wonder! (more)Anna Manaeva
When a week feels like a month ( in the best possible way), you know you have struck holiday gold! I'm a bit reluctant to tell anyone about them, as I loved it so much I kind of want to keep it for myself! ;) (more)Deirdre O

Wellbeing holiday in North Iceland
Memorable parts? We had a fantastic whale watching trip from Husavik. Saw several grey whales close to our boat. One was very active and actually breached for us! Visit to steaming geothermal area bubbling pools of water and mud and smelling strongly of rotten eggs! Tips? Needed information about transport between international and domestic airports in Reyjavik. Had to use taxi between bus terminal and domestic airport which we were not told about. More information about our... (more)Jeanne Weston
From £1100 - £2100 including domestic flights only

The holiday was excellent from start to finish - so much so that I am considering returning later in the year. (more)Diane Tams
the most memorable part was being able to relax!...I had no idea what to expect and met up with a group of 30 - 55 year olds in need of time to relax and unwind. 14 burned out ladies! Gentle yoga, cardio circuits, walks, good food etc contributed to re-energise us. Good massages. (more)Susan Barnacott
From £1148 - £1298 excluding flights

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

Luxury fitness & detox retreat in Spain for women
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 £1148 excluding flights

It was a very magical place where you could relax and have complete rest with a wonderful team of people looking after you. I would highly recommend and would make a return visit again. (more)Kwok Chan
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 €700 - €850 excluding flights

Portugal yoga & dance holiday
Memorable parts? Going down to the river and behaving like a hippopotamus.....by this I mean wallowing in the mud. It was not only fun but made the skin feel good too. Tips? Don't worry about what stage you are at in your yoga practice. The teachers are highly skilled and can guide you regardless of your level. I was a beginner and therefore enjoyed the afternoon sessions that focused more on pair yoga. Also buy some of their honey if you can......it is simply divine. Local benefits? Yes,... (more)Janice Thomas
From €700 - €850 excluding flights

A great break from a mad city life. A great combination of people and therapies to recharge...great space for yoga, great teaching. Wonderful massage and acupuncture - totally restorative. (more)Joanna Benn
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
From €750 - €950 excluding flights

Great! just wish it had been longer than 6 days, 10 days would have been perfect. (more)Jai Lescieur
From £685 excluding flights
Yoga & wellness holiday in Granada, Spain
Memorable parts? The villa, nestled at the base of the Alhambra palace, was beautiful, in a gorgeous rustic way. Gardens, pool and eating outdoors under the shelter of the grape vine - bliss! Tips? Do it! The Samyama yoga retreat was fun. I didn't want to spend a week in meditative silence so this option was perfect. Lots of tapas, wine, exploring, adventure and shopping. Local benefits? Definitely. The local guides who looked after us were brilliant. All the food was locally... (more)Wendy Dooley

From €550 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

Scottish Highlands holiday, wildlife & wellbeing
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of the holiday was during dolphin-watching, when a baby dolphin with it’s' mother, dived in and out of the water, around both sides of our boat. They swam very close to us. Sarah, who steered the boat, knew the sea area near Cromarty and the Black Isle extremely well. She gave us an informative and exhilarating boat journey. Tips? This is a bespoke holiday so discuss with Deborah, the marine biologist, exactly what you would like to experience.... (more)Manjinder Jagdev

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

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 £695 excluding flights

My hosts helped me to find my feet as soon as I got off the plane and I was able to get the most out of my stay in the atmospheric Sintra National Park, walking, swimming and visiting a good range of places of historical interest. (more)Richard Bell
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
From €490 - €1000 excluding flights
Kerala ayurveda & yoga accommodation, India
The pick up from the airport was very welcome, although the two hour drive a little scary at times but that is India for you. (more)Lisa Chothia
The most enjoyable part of my holiday was the ayurvedic treatments that I had. The staff at the resort were also so nice, they couldn't do enough for you and always had a smile on their faces. (more)Kirandeep Rihal
I do feel it benefited local people as all of the staff were local and they didn't seem to impact on the environment in any detrimental way. (more)Kelly Newell
From £25 - £45 per room per night
