Just a mere mention of Ibiza can conjure up imagery of hedonism, super-clubs and over-priced VIP bars. But the beautiful Balearic Island has so much more to offer than partying into a haze that’s hard to recollect once you return home.
A breath taking landscape of rusty rocky cliffs, luscious pine forests, white sandy beaches and sparkling turquoise sea makes Ibiza the ideal location for chilled out escapism and a well-being overhaul.
If you’re planning a trip to Ibiza to party or chill, take time out to breathe in the island’s unique and magical energy and visit these beautiful spas and retreats to restore your mind, body and soul.
Ibiza Retreats are hosted in various nature-surrounded sanctuaries across the island, including luxury villas, boutique hotels and B&Bs, with over one hundred well-being treatments and therapeutic workshops on offer.
Tailor-made retreats are led by a team of trained teachers and therapists who help you to “undress your stress” along with experienced chefs who lovingly create nutritious and organic plant-based meals, free from wheat, dairy and sugar.
The main home of Ibiza Retreats is located at Casa Lakshumi Luz, a 200-year-old estate just 5 minutes from Santa Eularia and a 10 minute drive from the stunning Cala Nova beach.
Casa Lakshumi Luz has been restored and transformed into a tranquil oasis surrounded by luscious gardens, a pool area and colourful hammocks.
