"Perfect Holistic Relaxation"

The location and the lodge itself are stunning ; the staff are wonderful, super friendly and helpful! The yoga was phenomenal, sounds of nature and feeling the sun on your skin added to the fantastic experience.

I had two reiki sessions and found them to be extremely transformative. The first session really felt like I worked through a lot of suppressed mental and emotional blockages, and the second session really filled me with a positive energy, where I felt like I was floating for hours after the session. I was a little skeptical about it before doing it, but I'm so glad I did, and I am already seeking a reiki practitioner back home!

I would definitely recommend this lodge and I really hope to return soon!

"4 Days of R & R"

I found the relaxed vibe of the lodge very appealing and the location was great beautiful views especially first thing in the morning. All the girls working at the lodge were friendly and helpful. The massage I had from Iris was possibly one of the best I’ve ever had and the yoga lessons were a great introduction as a first timer. I also experienced my first Reiki session with Elena which was thoroughly relaxing.

"Short stay with AltaVista"

The staff were really lovely and accommodating, gave good tips on what tours/experiences to sign up for. They were knowledgeable about the surrounding area and were super friendly. The accommodation was nice, location was good - definitely made better as I had a car, and a few moments drive from Luz.

"a product in transition"

The team of girls who taught us and looked after us - they were excellent. The overall atmosphere and person-centred approach to my needs was very good. The treatments were brilliant, with some very skilled practitioners. The setting and pool are ideal for a rejuvenation break.

"Happy holiday, great hosts, so much to do."

The absolute best thing about the holiday were the team of hosts at Alta Vista they were all so lovely, helpful, fun and made everything happen (from booking activities to fixing issues to arranging impromptu group nights out, keeping everything spotless) so friendly and made you feel so looked after. It is due to them that the atmosphere at the villa is so good. The massages and yoga were excellent, feel quite spoiled with all the treatments and almost private yoga sessions. Each one was different and felt just right. The villa and pool are beautiful a pleasure to hang out, stay in and relax.

"Low budget holiday with basic yoga and massages"

This is your package if you want to spent some days at Algarve and take some basic (beginner) Yoga sessions.

Hosts are very kind and always willing to help.

Please do not expect a quality yoga retreat, sessions are basic and teachers do not align or correct participants.

Nor the atmosphere at the lodge is like on a retreat as there are offered other activities like surfing as well.

Massages are very good and the practitioner seems to be super qualified.

I stayed here for a week in a single room. It was clean and well run. The staff was friendly and helpful, and they have a nice complimentary breakfast. It's a little bit of an older crowd, I would say 25-35. Nice change from some of the hostels in Lagos with all kids. It's pretty quiet and relaxing. The pool layout is nice. They do a big bbq spread on Tuesday night that is really good. There is also daily yoga. I would recommend this place.
