Where you'll be  staying 

The villa is distributed across 3 floors with bedrooms spread nicely across all floors allowing our group to share a space but also maintain privacy. The ground floor has a large kitchen with a separate dining room. The dining room is separated from the sitting room by a glass walled interior patio with potted plants which provides bright spaces and is a beautiful unique feature of this villa. There are two double ensuite bedrooms on this floor – one ensuite has direct access to the garden and pool. The kitchen is large, modern and fully fitted. It faces out to the garden and the pool. The kitchen also connects directly with the terraces with Alfresco dining and sunbeds.

RYT200 Yoga Instructor


Rebeca Quintero is wife and mother of 2 boys. Originally a pre-school teacher she can say that sharing and teaching have always been a passion for her. Yoga has been present in her  life for approximately 20 years and a few years ago it saved her life. Severe anxiety and OCD had taken a strong hold of  her one particular day, yet on this day she made the decision to heal herself  from within rather than seeking yet another external solution. Through the journey of self discovery, she has been able to face her shadows and overcome many obstacles. Her biggest desire is to teach, share and aid others to find the same powerful healing that comes from the journey of the Self.

Reiki Master


Johanna is a naturally gifted intuitive who has committed her life to being a healer of the heart, mind, body and soul. Being scared and misunderstood as a clairsentient, clairaudient and clairvoyant as a young child, Johanna invested most of her adult life in bringing lighthearted fun to the spiritual healing world.  As a Reiki Master,  wellness advocate and jewelry designer, Johanna uses crystals, essential oils and different energy balancing modalities in her practice.  With a degree in Psychology and Sociology, she helps teach her clients how to consciously create their life through the understanding that every thought, word or action shifts the energy in their field and creates their destiny and the reality around them.
