Cal Reiet Holistic Retreat is a really special find. A haven of peace and tranquility, this hundred year old mansion has been lovingly restored by the owners Petra (Swiss) and Henning Bensland (Swedish). With their joint passion for yoga, meditation and wellbeing, there could not be a better location than this rural south east corner of Mallorca to offer such a feeling of serenity and escape.
The generous surrounding estate at Cal Reiet Holistic Retreat provided the owners with the opportunity to plant a lush Mediterranean garden with the help of British designer Graham Lloyd -Brunt incorporating courtyards, terraces and hidden corners offering havens of peace amongst the fragrant rosemary and bougainvillea. Orchards of olives, figs and pomegranates as well as a beautifully tended vegetable garden have been planted. A yoga ´shala`or studio has been unobtrusively tucked away in the grounds as well as an outdoor yoga platform where complimentary group class are offered daily. In addition international yoga teachers regularly host yoga retreats and other holistic wellbeing events.
In the main house you will find a communal living area where you can sink into a sumptuous sofa and this area extends out onto the terrace.
Breakfast is laid out in the kitchen area and you can choose to sit inside or out depending on the weather.
Ten deluxe and luxury bedrooms are located in the main house and two guest houses, offering 1 and 2-bedroom chic suites with kitchens and private terraces, are situated in the grounds. All the rooms and suites are spacious with understated décor in calming tones of taupe and stone with a hint of Mallorcan style in the fabrics and furnishings.
As a luxury low season traveler, why not treat yourself to one of their larger rooms such as the split-level Attic Room located on the top floor offering 360º views over the pool and garden, across the village of Santanyi and all the way to the sea.
Everything has been so well thought out. Peace, tranquility and comfort are guaranteed on your stay here.
In line with the holistic approach that ´you are what you eat, ` Cal Reiet is the only luxury hotel on the island to offer a vegetarian only menu prepared by local Mallorcan chef Rafel Mulet who has embraced the philosophy that when we change our lives we can discover a new path of happiness and contentment. Originally an accountant, Rafel can now be found assembling all manner of delicious smoothies and juices in the outside kitchen as well as a selection of healthy snacks.
Eating a cleansing, healthy diet supports yoga and its natural detoxing effect and a vegetarian diet promotes ahimsa, respect for the sanctity of all living creatures, an embedded part of yogic philosophy. If you are staying a few days and wander out for supper then definitely try East 26 Restaurant which also offers a good selection for vegetarians and vegans.
