The Lotus Pad Ibiza proudly presents you this sacred summer retreat in Ibiza, Spain. This will be the sixth year of this intense mid-summer retreat. This retreat is designed to get the body moving, the psyche in motion and the mind still. This is such a fun and rewarding retreat in the middle of summer and a true all round yoga holiday with lots of time for sight-seeing and best of all, inner and outer exploration of mind, body and spirit
The maximum participants in the group is 12.
The accommodation is set in a traditional finca or a caravan in the heart of the Ibiza countryside. All rooms are shared with either 2 or 3 beds and all bathrooms are shared also. Sometimes you can get the room to yourself at the less busy times and for an added fee. The rooms are clean, simple, and comfortable.
This retreat is in the height and the heat of summer here in Ibiza so booking early is a must. The Lotus Pad Ibiza hopes this retreat will give you both the time to rebuild your practice and energize your inner self but also a chance to reconnect with nature and understand that you are not separate. Join a group of wonderful like-minded people for what is always a lot of fun, some hard work, a bit of soul-searching and some fabulous veggie food. Nourish your inner and outer body. Add on extra days of BYB (Bed, Yoga and Breakfast) if you want to stay longer in Ibiza.

Your breakfasts and dinners are included in the price. All of the food is locally sourced as much as possible, and healthy and nutritious without being tasteless. The Lotus Pad Ibiza tries to offer alternatives to people who have serious food allergies, and those with less serious food intolerances, you will find that there is plenty of choices.
Lunches are not included in the price. The Lotus Pad Ibiza is sure you will want to travel around to explore the wonderful array of restaurants and cafes on Ibiza. It really can be to suit all tastes. The following are a few restaurants within walking distance, or a short drive of The Lotus Pad.
Another great find is around the corner and just off the road. This restaurant makes what is rumored to be the best tomato salad on the island plus a range of other grilled offerings. It is only 30 minutes walk.
Neil refers to this place as the "center of the universe" as it really is a meeting point for many people in the north of Ibiza. More of a short drive towards San Juan here you will find a restaurant which serves an apparently famous paella amongst many other reasonably priced meals, and a supermarket to pick up anything you might need for the day. It is only 10 minutes drive.
Probably the closest restaurant to the retreat center, only 15 minutes walk. Run by an Argentinian man with the friendliest vibe and some reasonably priced sandwiches, coffee and cakes etc. They will make you very welcome and its an interesting spot to watch the world whizz by on the road in front. Open until around 7 p.m.
A very local family restaurant with a range of meat, fish and local dishes all at reasonable prices. Just up the road. Walking maybe takes 25 minutes.
This caf / restaurant is in the village of San Lorenzo and has some of the best food around. The sandwiches, coffees and cakes are fabulous and on offer in the day time. The evening meals are a little more formal but still a great range.
A little further down the road, this restaurant has been serving local people for decades and more recently tourists have come from far and wide to sample the rustic atmosphere and food and to take a look at the interesting clientele. Walking takes 30 minutes.
In the village of San Juan, its worth the trip to taste their mostly organic "slow" food. Pizzas, salads and cakes are mostly on the menu, but its worth the drive for their amazing chai. The journey time is 15 minutes by driving.

In the summer months, flights are pretty reasonable to Ibiza. Many airlines offer great bargains if you book early. The easiest way to get here is by plane to Ibiza Airport. Once you are here, you will either be hiring a car to get here or getting a taxi here, and then using local buses, bicycles or your feet to explore the surrounding areas. Whatever way you get here, Lotus Pad Ibiza will send you a direction sheet before you arrive to make it clear for you or your driver. Do not ask for the Lotus Pad as they will not know it, but the directions will get you here easily and safely.
