Valencia in Spain is a great place to relax. But when a day of lounging around at the beach isn’t quite enough, there are more focused retreats aimed at truly escaping it all and bringing you back to your centre. Here are some of our favourites.

Spa Las Arenas

If you want to make the most of Valencia’s sun and sand while being seriously pampered, book a three-night spa retreat at the famous beachfront Hotel Las Arenas Balneario Resort. The ideal place for a long weekend away, the spa dates from 1898 and offers everything from luxury facial and massage treatments to a thermal circuit, plus pools and terraces where you can enjoy the sea breeze and coastal views.

Orange Tree Retreat

Enjoy simple but beautiful accommodation at this affordable getaway just 20 minutes from Valencia, the perfect place to escape from it all. Enjoy the benefits of yoga, pilates and meditation, relax by the pool, and pick and squeeze your own fresh Valencian oranges from the trees. Check the website to find retreat dates or enquire about hiring the entire retreat for your own group holiday.

CPYoga retreats

If you’re looking for a yoga retreat in Valencia, this city centre yoga studio also organises both courses and getaways outside the city. The retreats are intended to enhance the quality of participants’ yoga practice and understanding, allowing you to withdraw into a quiet daily routine, and are open to people of all ages and abilities.

Valencia Yoga Retreats

Another option for a yoga retreat in the Valencian countryside, Valencia Yoga Retreats see participants staying in a stunning country house. The day starts with morning chants and Vinyasa, before relaxing by the pool or walking in the mountains. Nutrition workshops and organic, vegetarian food is included. The retreats are organised by Responsible Travel.

Valencia Mindfulness Retreat

This bed and breakfast with a difference is set in an elegant period building in the heart of the city. It features massage rooms, sun rooms for meditation, an honesty bar and, best of all, Valencian cava for breakfast and butler service throughout your stay. For those who want to combine mindfulness and total relaxation with luxury and city sightseeing, this is the perfect choice.

SHA Wellness Retreat Valencia

Get away from it all at the SHA hotel, dedicated to improving your wellbeing through a combination of Oriental and Western techniques.

Near the El Albir beach and with a stunning mountain backdrop, the hotel is located in the southern Valencia region, 100 miles (161 km) from Valencia city centre and 30 miles (48 km) from Alicante airport.
