Sharanam Yoga & Counselling Retreat

Aleid and Doby are the perfect hosts and welcome you open armed to their small and beautiful retreat minutes from the waters edge in the stunning Cala Figuera, Mallorca. If you´re looking for peace, quiet and a home from home, you have it all here. Aleid has a gentle and hugely experienced way about her, perfect for both the yoga and coaching sessions and for sure you´ll be begging Doby to share his recipes with you! Personal attention, personal healing and a warm homely atmosphere, that is what you will find here!

The Hotel

This is not a hotel, but Aleid and Doby´s charming home which is distributed over 3 floors. Each floor has its own entrance, so everyone is ensured of their own privacy. The house is simple, but cosy and it has everything you need such as a private bathroom. There are 3 guestrooms in total, meaning a maximum of 5 guests at any one time. The stunning surroundings make this a very special and unique destination, ideal for a few days or week away to enjoy total relaxation, peace and nature! This lovely house is located in the coastal town of Cala Figuera, Mallorca, just 100m walk from the picturesque harbour and 1 minute away from the most amazing cliff walks and swimming straight off the rocks into the clear waters! The village offers restaurants, some small shops and excursions such as boat rides, diving, SUP and kayaking. The stunning nature reserve of Cala Mondrago, with its turquoise bays and sandy beaches is only a few minutes away by bike. If you prefer to stay close to the retreat, the lush gardens offer more than enough space to enjoy a little afternoon nap in a hammock under the trees or to read a book under the porch on one of the loungers. There are 3 bikes, a kayak and a mini-trampoline, all of which you are free to use.

Aleid & Doby

After obtaining her Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of Amsterdam Aleid Warmelink worked in psychiatry in Amsterdam for several years. She started her own practice "Personal Radiance", which developed very successfully. Since then, she has focused on the combination of counselling and body-oriented work. Aleid is also a qualified yoga teacher and uses the insights she has gained through experience, in her treatments as a psychologist.

Doby has a passion for culture, music and healthy food. As a kid he was always helping his mum out in the kitchen and from there his passion and interest in food developed. He now creates the most colourful and delicious meals inspired by their travels around the world. His latte´s and curry´s are unbeatable! But his skills are not limited to culinary delights, be sure to get a massage with Doby, his hands work wonders, whether its Reiki or a traditional massage, you will leave the massage table relaxed and totally reenergised.

Peaceful retreat

Aleid and Doby offer peaceful retreats where guests can enjoy yoga & meditation, a Juice Detox or coaching. The programs at Sharanam Retreats stand for personal attention, personal healing, flexibility and professional guidance. All of the programs are very complete and include a holistic healthy full board. The retreat is open year-round, Mallorca is stunning all year long but for many the off-season months, when there are less tourists, are especially inviting! Yoga and meditation classes will be given outside on the terrace (April-October, weather permitting) and in summer you will also go to the beach or the cliffs for a peaceful yoga or meditation session.

Had an amazingly healing time at Sharanam with Aleid and Doby. Though the retreat is in their home (a beautiful space) I had my own private area and roof terrace, and could either be a part of the house (for chats and with fabulous sunspots, gorgeous dog and cats and many secret garden reading areas) or take time out for myself and feel private. I felt they were both very experienced in their field (therapy, yoga, cooking and massage) and that they genuinely engaged with my need for rest and recovery. Two very special people, who really care about what they do and healing others. Walks around the area, the beautiful harbour and cliff strolls were a bonus - and morning yoga on a beach whilst waves lapped at the sand was blissful. Have done a lot of retreats and really this was one of the truest and best. I shall be back. Thank you A and D for all you give.

I have had a fantastic week with Aleid and Doby from Sharanam Retreats. Thanks also for the nice hammam towel. The program exceeded my expectations, partly due to the nice weather with which you should have some luck at the beginning of March and I had that. I am very satisfied with your service, you felt well what I was looking for, small scale and a private room. Without you I would never have ended up at Sharanam Retreats. I found you via the internet and would definitely use your service again next time.

We love this

  • The super personal approach and the care and attention you receive at this retreat is truly special
  • Very small scale, max of 4-5 guests at any one time!
  • The coaching sessions in the middle of nature are unique!
  • The food is exceptional! Healthy, colourful, all freshly cooked by Doby and above all absolutely delicious!
  • The retreat is located walking distance from the small and super pitoresque Cala Figueras, a typical Spanish fishing village

This not so much...

  • The retreat does not have a pool, but Cala Figueras, where you can swim in the sea, is only a couple of minutes walk away
  • Aleid and Doby have a dog and 3 cats, so if you have any animal allergies this retreat might not be for you. Of course their pets are not allowed in the bedrooms and a light allergy should not be a problem as then they will vacuum every day.
  • For guests looking for a group retreat, this might be too small.
  • No spa or gym facilities

Our tips

  • Take a boat trip through Mondrago National Park to amazing unspoilt coves, including the beautiful beach of S'Amarador, which has transparent waters and pine trees (don´t go there in high season because it can get very crowded, but in low season it is amazingly beautiful and quite deserted). The Mondrago national park and surroundings has great relaxed cycling routes for those looking for a little exercise whilst enjoying the green landscape of forest and fields. The retreat has both mountain and road bikes that guests are welcome to use.
  • Don´t miss the Wednesday and Saturday Market in Santanyi village where you can find beautiful handicrafts, jewelry and local delicacies. The stone built town has many nice shops and galleries that all come to life on market days. In winter on the plaza, from May to October all the centre of the town.
  • The retreat is located just 82 steps above the romantic fishing port of Cala figuera. If you take a walk down the steps and you can watch the sun light glistening around the typical Mallorquin Llauts, the typical small white fishing boats. You can step from pier to pier that connect the old boat houses. You can also walk over the road and boulevard or alongside the cliffs. We personally really like that very few tourists come here, this is what keeps the port so authentic, but that doesn´t mean you cannot swim. Cala figuera has two long narrow stretched coves with many beautiful places on the rocks where you can easily get into the water and beaches are only 10 minutes away by bike.
  • In the harbour you can rent SUP boards and Kayaks. Or take smaller or bigger boat tours. Once a year in July during the village festival the 3 bigger fishing boats take everyone who wants to go aboard out to sea together with the Maria statue from the local church followed by a fleet of smaller decorated boats.
  • From June till October you can enjoy live outdoor concerts at the beach of Es Trenc in the unconventional ´S'Embat´, a hippie-like beach bar with Reggae music, grilled or spanish cuisine and a vibrant cultural program with a variety of entertainment from just one acoustic singer to full stage bands.
