Facilities

Whether you are coming to lose weight, detox your body, practice yoga or make changes to your life, your time away with La Crisalida Retreats, Spain, is designed to recharge your batteries. You can enjoy all of the many facilities during your stay with us at the retreat.

So, come watch the sunrise or sunset from our outdoor yoga terrace. Read your book under the blue sky next to one of our pools, snooze in the hammock, get inspired in one of our workshops or snuggle up in your cosy apartment with a DVD. Whether you visit alone or with friends, you will always find space for yourself in our tranquil surroundings.

Outdoor yoga terrace

Many of our activities often take place on our wonderful rooftop yoga terrace where you can enjoy breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains and sea. It’s a beautiful and calming space to practice yoga and mindfulness and allows you to reconnect with nature around you.

There is retractable shade, so that when the sun is high there is plentiful shade beneath which to practice. In the cooler months, during the day we can practice our yoga outside with the blue sky directly above us.

You’re welcome to enjoy this area for personal practice or simply to relax and rejuvenate when classes are not scheduled. There is plenty of space for socially distant yoga practice and lots of lovely fresh air up here!

Indoor activity studio

Occasionally, when the weather is cooler, wet, or too warm outside, we move inside to our lovely indoor activity studio. The studio is fully equipped with air conditioning and fans to keep you cool in the summer, and heating to keep you comfortable during the cooler winter months.

The rebounders are kept in the indoor activitiy studio. You’re welcome to use the rebounders during your stay when the activity room is not in use.

Yoga and exercise equipment

When you arrive at the retreat, we will give you your own set of yoga equipment, for your personal use during your stay. This includes a yoga mat, blocks, strap and blankets to keep you snug suring savasana. Additional yoga equipment, including more mats, cork blocks, bolsters, blankets and eye masks are also available in each class.

We have a supply of rebounders and hand weights for your use during exercise classes, if you choose.

magnesium outdoor pool facilities La Crisalida yoga retreat

Magnesium swimming pool

Our outdoor magnesium pool is located in the lower courtyard area and is a lovely place to take a dip, relax or exercise in. The magnesium salts in the water are ideal to help to relax tired or sore muscles.

In the cooler months, the magnesium pool is heated creating the perfect environment for helping your body to relax. Sometimes aqua aerobics will take place in this pool. Please note, in winter, the pool will close at dusk and open when the sun rises.

There are plenty of sunbeds around the pool to sunbathe, with parasols for shade, and an outdoor shower to rinse off before taking your dip.

Second outdoor swimming pool

Our second outdoor swimming pool is slightly larger and is situated in the upper gardens, in front of the two-bedroom apartments. It’s a great place to swim or cool off during the warmer months. This pool is also often used during the summer months for our popular aqua aerobics class. Both areas have outdoor showering facilities.

Both of our pool areas offer plenty of sunbeds where you can relax in the warm sunshine and we also provide parasols for your comfort. You will also find additional sunbeds in each of the terraces of the apartments located in the lower courtyard area, for personal use.

Infrared sauna

Our infrared sauna is an excellent way to support the body’s detox process and can help to ease any aches or pains you might have by helping you to relax. It also gives you some quiet time to yourself, to quieten your mind.

Infra-red saunas have many health benefits including:

  • relaxing tired and aching muscles, and helping to reduce fatigue
  • reducing pain, for example, joint pain or headaches
  • improved circulation and increased blood flow
  • supporting your detox by allowing toxins to leave the body
  • reducing stress
  • cleansing and purifying your skin

You should expect to start sweating during your sauna. Sweating is a great method of elimination (the skin is the largest organ in the body).  Stored toxins and metals can be released from your body through your sweat. Additionally, the infra-red rays help to break up and release toxins stored in fat cells and tissues. Sauna towels are provided. 

Dedicated beauty suite

Relax and rejuvenate your body in our dedicated beauty suite.

In this tranquil space you can indulge in one of our wide range of treatments delivered by one of our well-trained therapists. There are many treatments that you can enjoy including a relaxing or deep massage, or you might like to try one of the other treatments on offer, for example chakra balance or Reiki.

We use natural organic massage oils and facial products to pamper your body and indulge the senses.

There are three communal outdoor dining areas in the retreat grounds for you to enjoy our plant-based food and juices and connect with other guests.

One of the dining areas is set beneath a pergola with curtains, in a quiet side of the retreat, surrounded by mature gardens which provide a beautiful and tranquil backdrop for you to enjoy your meals. There is additional seating in front of the retreat for more casual dining and the third area is next to the lovely magnesium pool in the lower courtyard area.

Each apartment also has a small outdoor table for personal use.

Meal times are a good opportunity to meet and get to know the other like-minded people who are also here on retreat, swapping stories with people from all over Europe and the world.

We have a spacious indoor dining area, which is air-conditioned in the warm summer months and heated in the cooler winter months. Meals are often served here and it is a great place to chat with other guests.

The weekly menu for food and juice are on display in the dining room, and this is where you can let us know your meal preferences. 

There is also an area containing a wide range of organic herbal teas, mineral water (hot and cold) and fresh fruit, which you can help yourself to. We also offer fresh lemon and ginger to help give you a boost during your detox.

We also have a small library of educational books and DVDs, which you can borrow throughout your stay, to support your mindset as part of your life makeover retreat. You can also learn more about nutrition, hydration, yoga, meditation or health.

Retreat gardens

The retreat grounds are beautifully arranged with mature Mediterranean gardens full of beautiful plants and birdlife.

The retreat gardens burst with colour during the spring and summer months with bougainvillea, hibiscus and jasmine flowers.  Palm trees provide gentle shade during the afternoon.
