The break I neededI needed a reset and this was perfect. The staff are amazing call out to Julie and Nicola. Just wonderful genuine people. I loved this flexibility of this retreat you can juice, eat do whatever you want. Do the activities or just lounge the pool. It’s situated in a town so if you need anything you can pop in. Also the area has so many beautiful walks . Easy ones and some good climbs to get you going. Last but not least Juan Carlos thank you so much a great therapist I came in with tight muscles with a lot of pain, I left transformed and relaxed. I miss them already and it’s only been a day !!! PS 10 days lost 3kgs quite a few cms and gained a tone of energy! Counting the days until I can return!!

Fantastic experience highly recommendedThis is a perfect retreat, I have just returned from a three night stay and can honestly say wow! La Crisalida delivered in every way, the staff and owners are fantastic and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. The programme is designed to meet all levels of fitness and allows you to explore so many elements of wellness. The accommodation is fantastic and so well situated. The people staying are welcoming and all there with the same goals and make the experience wonderful. You don’t feel odd attending on your own. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to refresh rejuvenate and relax! ❤️👏🏼

Just what I needed!Highly recommend this retreat. I left after 3 days a different person, totally calm, relaxed and rebalanced. The yoga was perfect, plenty of classes and great instructors. Daily guided walks were perfect in distance and gave great opportunity to get to know other guests. A real mix of nationalities and plenty of solo travellers. Juicing/food options excellent.

Relaxed and rejuvenated at La CrisalidaHaving just returned from La Crisalida and my first-ever yoga holiday, I am delighted to say how wonderful the experience was. The retreat is very relaxed, informal, flexible and very friendly! Nothing was too much trouble when asking for anything. Yoga twice a day on the roof terrace was amazing! The room we had was great, a twin but the beds were separated, with a big dresser/wardrobe down the middle so that you each had your own space which was ideal for two friends travelling together, a kitchenette and a small living area. Right by the magnesium pool, we were perfectly located. The beds were very comfortable too. I didn't realise that juicing was such a big thing at the retreat and it was brilliant that you got to choose what you wanted to do the day before; either eat a wonderful plant-based meal or juice. The juices were amazing!! I can't wait to try them now I am back home! I would definitely come back here again and I would be happy to travel solo. Thank you to every one of the team who made us so welcome!

Rest and rejuvenate in the sunshineThis was the perfect place to rejuvenate and relax from a hectic few months at home. I chose to eat the food rather than juice and it was delicious. My only criticism is that breakfast is a bit repetitive. I didn’t join the yoga classes as was too busy sunbathing by both of the lovely pools! But I did join all the walks that were on offer which were beautiful and would not have found those if I had been travelling solo. I attended a couple of other classes as well which were interesting and informative. Would definitely come back and definitely recommend you try it!

Just what we needed!My daughter and I loved our week at the retreat. All staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The retreat has a comprehensive program of classes and workshops, with a really good team of qualified instructors/professionals. Yoga classes of different techniques and levels, meditations, aqua aerobics, walks and a variety of workshops all take place on a daily basis. We really enjoyed everything and the vegan food was good too. We particularly loved ending our busy days with a dip in the magnesium pool!

A place of re-source with fantastic guidance.La Crisalida was recommended to me by a friend. I have done a yoga retreat before and so knew from experience that it can fully recharge and renew you.I do it to make myself aware of healthy food again, to rest, to detoxify, to do as much yoga as I want and to get advice on health, both mentally and physically. I do it to make myself aware of healthy food again, to rest, to detoxify, to do as much yoga as I want and to get advice on health, both mentally and physically. I had a fantastic holiday! I had a good feeling since I registered. The welcome and warmth of these people is heartwarming. No question is too much, they go to all the trouble to feel good to be able to relax.The rooms are neat and comfortable, everything there is simple and clean. The food was really tasty, both the juices and the regular (vegan) food. I didn't feel like I was eating saltless at all. The interesting and fun is also that every meal is explained, why you need to eat something, what is good for you and why. How to get vegan food tasty and varied. Everything was so fresh and tasteful, really surprising to me. De sfeer is top, niemand dringt zich op, je doet of laat waar je zin in hebt. Zeer respectvol in de omgang. Deze mensen hebben me weer op de rails gezet met hun vriendelijkheid, luisterend oor en toewijding. By letting me be. By asking me how I'm doing. By taking care of me. Until the very last minute. They made a deep impression on me. I've met some amazing people from all over the world, one a little more yogi than the other. The fact that many people return to this place actually says enough. The accommodation is also perfectly in order. You can go to people's company or isolate yourself. There are two lovely pools. The climate is fantastic. I will definitely be back there! And I have already recommended Crisalida to many friends who are tired or need time/rest for themselves.

Excellent RetreatSpent 2 weeks at La Crisalida. I enjoyed so much their diverse program and very healthy vegan food and juices. I would recommend La Crisalida for mental and physical health. I love the magnesium pool. Muscle pain treatment by Juan Carlos is a must.

Tolles Retreat an grossartiger Lage, vielseitigem Programm und einer tollen motivierten Crew.Ich bin begeistert von La Crisálida. Die Anlage ist ein kleines Paradies und auch die Lage mit der Nähe zu Meer und Bergen ist perfekt. Das Programm ist vielseitig und abwechslungsreich mit professionellen und sympathischen Lehrpersonen. Ich habe es sehr geschätzt nach eigenen Bedürfnissen teilzunehmen. Das Essen und die Säfte sind von hoher Qualität und haben mir auch für künftige gesunde Ernährung überzeugt. Ich gehe voller neuer Ideen, Energie und Freude nach Hause und würde jederzeit wieder zurückkehren.

The Costa Blanca, Spain, is a lovely part of Europe to explore, enjoy and take a healthy holiday! The retreat is in a small seaside town called Albir and just up the coast is another small town called Altea.

The old town in Altea has lovely white-washed walled buildings, small cobbled streets and wonderful shops to explore. You can walk to Altea from the retreat, along the beach and then take the steps up to the top of the old town. It gives you a good walk whilst taking in the views and exploring

The 8am beach walk at the moment enjoys lovely early morning sun, although it can be a little fresh at that time of day! (Layers recommended).

One of our guests this week found a heart-shaped stone on the beach - isn´t it lovely?

Yoga-lates is one of the exercise classes we offer here at the retreat, but you might be wondering what it is! It´s a combination of yoga and pilates, designed to focus specifically on core muscles, as well as torso, hips and thighs.

Building strong core muscles can provide support for your back, as well as maintaining overall balance and mobility. Yoga-lates is on the programme as an exercise class, so sometimes we set it to music. Great fun!

Did you see the wolf moon last night? It was stunning over the sea and when it first rose it was a lovely red colour.

This photo was taken from the beach in Altea as the moon came up over the nearby mountain.

And two nights before, the moon was also seen over the retreat, with lots of stars in the clear sky (great is you like star gazing).

This is Juan Carlos, our resident masseur, one of our talented team of therapists here at the retreat. Having a massage is a great way to help your whole body to relax whilst you are here on retreat. It can help to release tightness and tension all over your body.

We have a dedicated beauty suite on site and our therapists offer a wide range of treatments, from a relaxing or deep tissue massage, to reiki, biomagnetism, facials, threading, pedicure, reflexology and more.
