Nestled within 450 acres of private vineyards, orchards, gardens, and forests is Es Racó d’Artà, an exquisite 13th-century finca that has been transformed into a 5-star boutique hotel. This architectural gem graces the heart of Mallorca’s largest nature preserve, the Llevant Natural Park, which spans 51,870 acres of pristine forest, hills, and untouched coastline, complete with secluded sandy beaches. This idyllic location sets the perfect stage for a retreat.
The transformative journey is led by the internationally acclaimed instructor Karl Straub. Each morning, participants awaken to tea, fruit, and meditation in the fragrant island atmosphere, followed by an invigorating Jivamukti yoga class. Karl’s expertise caters to individuals of all levels, ensuring personalized attention and growth.
After the yoga practice, participants indulge their senses with a wholesome lunch made from organic and locally sourced ingredients. Subsequent free time offers the chance to relax by the palm-fringed pool, enjoy the spa’s sauna, steam room, and whirlpool, book a massage, explore Artà town, or discover nearby beaches.
The afternoon brings a second program session, featuring restorative yoga or workshops led by guest teachers and local craft artisans, all curated by Karl. Evenings usher in another highlight: as the stars emerge, participants can savor a meticulously crafted multi-course dinner presented by the celebrated chefs and service team in the hotel’s exclusive restaurant, Beni Axir.
Throughout the stay, a dedicated team ensures that every detail is tended to, maintaining both the accommodations and the entire venue impeccably. This retreat offers an opportunity to escape the ordinary and embrace an experience where nature, self-discovery, and refined comfort harmoniously converge.
