Active Escape - Fitness Retreat

Our “Active Escape” Retreat is the ideal combination of fitness, relaxation and fun, that will leave you feeling energised and refreshed. Daily activities aim to educate as well as build strong minds and bodies. We will be active by moving your body through Pilates, boxing, weight training and mountain bike riding. An interactive cooking session with our Nutritionist will give you tools to nourish your bodies and implement at home.

Over your 2-night stay you will enjoy pampering at Lux Spa & Wellness, beautiful meals from our fine dining restaurant The Coast and a calming meditation and sound healing session, the perfect way to complete your time here. 

This unique experience will allow you to meet like-minded people and recharge your batteries in a positive, uplifting environment.
