Yoga holiday Madeira: Alpino Atlantico

Set on the beautiful rocky coastline of Madeira lies Alpino Atlantico, a wonderful Ayurveda hotel created to offer guests peace and tranquility whilst away on retreat. Guests are attracted here for the Ayurveda approach to balancing the bodies systems through yoga, healthy vegetarian cuisine and treatments tailored towards every individual guest. Combined with the warmth from year round sunshine and the care of friendly staff it’s the perfect break for a yoga holiday. The hotel is a small hideaway with only 27 guest bedrooms – all simply designed with the comforts you need. From most areas you can see beautiful lush green gardens or far reaching ocean views. The hotel is located in a quiet part of the wider Galo resort, also home to Galomar- a wonderful adult only eco spa and Galosol, a hotel attracting fitness enthusiasts. In between yoga classes, guests are free to explore all the resorts facilities and activities, which even include water sports and saltwater swimming pools access to the wonderfully clear sea!

Yoga at Alpino Atlantico

Alpino Atlantico has one of the most amazing yoga studios we’ve experienced and it truly makes a beautiful spot to connect to the breath and get in to the flow of the yoga. The spacious room with wood floors, is lined with large windows on one side, offering breathtaking views and plenty of natural light. All equipment is provided and stored it the studio ready for you to use. The schedule for our yoga classes will vary for each retreat and we will confirm the final times closer the time of each week.

Retreat accommodation

The guest bedrooms are all ensuite and air-conditioned to ensure that you’re comfortable during your stay. In the evening you can relax in your room or on your balcony before rolling down the blackout blinds- perfect for a deep sleep! Wi-fi is also available through out the hotel.

We only have limited availability in our twin rooms at Alpino Atlantico, however when these become full we can also book the twin rooms at the beautiful neighbouring Galomar hotel- just 350 meters away it takes around 5 minutes to walk between the two. If staying in Galomar all yoga and meals will still take place with the group at Alpino Atlantico.

Healthy and nutritious cuisine

The hotel follows an Ayurveda diet which we find is the perfect accompaniment to a yoga retreat as it’s designed not to put too much pressure on your body whilst giving all the energy and delicious flavours you’ll need for the week. The main meal will be served at lunch time with a lighter dinner, all of which will be vegetarian buffet which is also mainly dairy free.

If you’d like to learn more about the Ayurveda diet, they organise a weekly course with the chef who will take you through the preparation and secrets to balancing the meals!

Alcohol isn’t served at Alpino Atlantico but you can buy drink at bars or restaurants around the wider resort if you wish.
