Our main teaching space, the Dojo is set back through 3 arches with its ancient Moroccan doors flanked by two golden Buddhas. It's an open, light and airy room, based on a traditional Japanese design with an Arabic twist.

Here, we’ll be gathering as a group to learn and ecstatic dance beneath an architectural lantern, decorated with Moroccan purple and gold glass that sends iridescent shards of dappled light onto its high quality, fully sprung timber floor.

The Dojo has 4 double sets of wooden and glass doors that lead out onto an upper terrace overlooking the palm treetops and the popular garden.

Nestled on the edge of a valley in our own 33 acres of stunning landscaped gardens and open vistas, the retreat center is secluded and magical with no light or sound pollution and a multitude of birds, tortoises and other wildlife.

Exceptional in their variety of form and color, our gardens are exciting to both explore and spend time in quiet contemplation in one of the many hidden and beautiful spaces. With specimen trees and plants from all over the world, including Australia, South America, South Africa, China and Japan, the gardens are widely talked about and admired.

Throughout the gardens you hear the sound of gentle running water, with fountains and even a small rill leading to a waterfall where the water flows into our natural pool in the Water Garden.

The orchards have an abundance of native and tropical fruits, one of which is newly planted with over 600 fruit and nut trees, including almond, peaches, guavas and figs to name but a few. There is also have an extensive variety of salads, vegetables and herbs.

Situated in the Almerian desert and coastal region of Andalucia, Utopian Retreats is an idyllic oasis full of exotic palms, fountains and pools.

The much-loved, luxurious, black and gold swimming pool is solar heated with underwater seating in both the shallow and deep ends. At 18 meters long, it's a perfect length for both fitness and recreational swimming.

The plunge pool is on the other side of La Finca, also with underwater heating, and with steps leading into it from a quirky covered shower and relaxation area.

Uniquely designed to represent the sun and the moon and surrounded by high walls, the totally enclosed amphitheater is a contained and acoustically perfect space.  It's picturesque with low walls for seating and mature trees for shade.

The living areas are beautifully designed, light and airy, with inspiration from around the world.  Some rooms are inspired by Morocco, while others have been carefully carved into the rock itself.

Rooms have balconies or terraces overlooking the lush gardens, mountains or out to sea.  Two students will even be lucky enough to sleep in a yurt (worth the 5-minute walk to the main teaching area!).

Because there’s a mixture of beds (from luxurious double beds to mostly twin beds, but also a few sofa beds & camp beds), we will assign beds based on a first-come, first-served basis.  Sign up soon to ensure you get a great spot!

Sleeping arrangements are community cozy — all rooms are shared. If you're coming with a partner or friend, please let TEAM LOVE know in your logistics form after booking.

Katie majestically transforms all of the delicious fruit and vegetables from our market garden into sensational masterpieces that are a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. Katie is not only passionate about creating an exceptional menu, she does so with acute attention to detail.

All of the food is organic or sustainably sourced, much of it grown in their own market gardens.  The retreat center is mainly a plant-based, however we'll serve local cheeses, organic eggs and freshly caught fish carefully selected from the fishing port in Garrucha.  There are also homemade chutneys and jams, their own olive oil, and fresh fruit and vegetables.
