Makai Fuerteventura Retreat

Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain   (Holiday ref: AH150004)
1 day or more, from 150 Euros per day

At Makai we are just people who have learned to live happily and accepting differences, understanding that slow down and enjoy life; It’s not only the scenery you miss by going fast, you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

Welcome to Makai, a three hundred years old renovated farm house, a self-sustainable green oasis into the desert of Fuerteventura and into the Atlantic ocean crystal water. Here the colourful sky reflect through fluffy clouds into the weaves to create breath- taking scenery, making the island the ideal place to connect with your inner self. Makai is a journey to mindfulness, to natural and simple living; a tale of respect to mother earth.

Here you will connect your body to your spirit, practicing yoga to stretch and align the muscles, quieting the mind with pranayama and meditation sessions rooting into the present moment.
Taste the island cooking your own food, using just local and seasonal products from salt to oil and water, collecting your own eggs, herbs and spices from the garden. Experience different cooking techniques like solar energy and open fire.

 

Be inspired by the nature that surrounds you, walk this stunning island discover secret spots where birds collect and volcanoes heights. Use your hands and let the creativity flow; by recycling wood,glass and plastic to make decorative pot to plant succulents and cactus, pick from the garden your own Aloe Vera, a world famous succulent known for its beneficial purposes, to make natural soap, hydratant gel and drinking juice, enjoying your time, sit around star gazing, play and colour, shine as a child.
