MasQi - The Energy House

One of our favourites! One of these rare places where everything is just right. A beautiful setting in the middle of nature, an amazingly restored old manor house with lots of charm, a super friendly team of wonderful people, relaxing yoga and meditation in the impressive Yoga dome and the most delicious & healthy macrobiotic food. If you are looking for a place to completely restore and recharge your batteries, this is the place for you!

The Hotel

Located in a stunning rural setting in the heart of the Sierra de Mariola, between Alicante and Valencia, MasQi is very special place of silence, with added style and soul. This beautiful 19th Century farmhouse has been completely restored and offers all the comforts of a boutique hotel.

Sonia Ferrer, the owner of this wonderful retreat, previously led a busy and highly stressful life. Having discovered for herself the personal benefits of yoga, meditation and the macrobiotic diet, there came a certain time when she too was looking for the perfect retreat offering a combination of the above but with a comfortable and luxurious environment. She could not find such a place in Spain, this planted the seed and shortly afterwards the idea of MasQi was born. Sonia, in turn now shares the well-being that all these disciplines offer to her guests. As well as connecting with the stunning local nature, you will be provided with the tools to live a fuller life, a life with inner peace.

The Rooms

MasQi has a total of ten rooms which are distributed over two floors and are of four different categories: Double, Superior Double, Junior Suite and Suite. All rooms are unique and very comfortable, tastefully decorated with beautiful furniture, high quality beds and bedlinen. In addition, they all have beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and gardens.

Macrobiotic Food

The restaurant offers healthy menus based on macrobiotic cuisine with a gastronomic touch. At this beautifully decorated location with its unique dishes, health is integrated effortlessly and with maximum enjoyment and respect for the environment, emphasizing the ecological products with a great variety of seasonal vegetables and fresh fish. There are options for vegans, adaptations for intolerances and touches of other cultures. However, if you like to enjoy a glass of wine with your meal then of course this is also possible.

Wellness Experience

Sonia has created a team of friendly and warm professionals and together they ensure that their guests are offered the best possible wellness experience you could wish for. As it is a small scale retreat, this venue is very suitable for people travelling alone.

MasQi proposes a new concept of relaxing breaks and unforgettable experiences, based on a philosophy of two essential pillars – diet and personal wellbeing. In addition to their carefully designed cuisine, the guests can enjoy the natural energy of this very special and unique place.

The yoga and meditation sessions are held in the dome, a spectacular dome-shaped room by the pool, surrounded by forest, where you can hear the sound of birds and the sun coming in through its transparent canvas windows. In an adjacent building therapies and treatments are offered which combine ancestral techniques with modern ones.

If you really want some time to disconnect, to take some time out for yourself, to be able to see things from a different perspective, then this is the place for you!

I was happy to be well prepared by SIS. If I had some questions before my arrival, it was just a matter of an email and I received an answer in no time. Very pleasant! Even though my friend previously had a “MasQi experience” and had shared quite a few enthusiastic stories with me, I was completely overwhelmed upon arrival. The route from the airport took me through olive groves, sleepy villages and beautiful nature. Finally I drove onto the MasQi estate and found myself in a silent world. Everything was clearly indicated (parking, reception, etc.) and I received a very friendly and calm welcome. Despite my early arrival, the room was already prepared. There was a welcome package from SIS on the bed, what a nice welcome. I still use the handy bottle! I was given a tour of the grounds and the “hotel” itself, and was immediately invited for lunch. Everyone was so friendly and everything was brought and served with so much "peace and serenity". The food was delicious, everything macrobiotic, water on the table and nutritious artisan bread was also served. Vincent (the waiter) showed me the 4(!!!) course lunch. It seemed way too much to me and I asked for half portions...well I only did that once!! Everything was so tasty and balanced, I just wanted…everything! :-) Wellness is still an adventurous concept for me, but I believe this will become an annual thing for me. I enjoyed it from the first hour. Upon arrival I received an overview schedule, everything clear and scheduled and I didn't have to think about anything anymore. 5 days were filled with yoga, meditation, massages and a facial. There are many other special options to book, I didn't even get to that. In between I found time to write and read, on a bed in the garden. A beautiful view and the garden was also very beautiful. Every day I did my laps, the other guests were impressed by it, the water was ice and ice cold. Mwaahh... Dutch people can't be fooled! :-) I feel 100% recharged and am already looking forward to my next visit. MasQi is a 5 star stay, the fine linen on the bed, the decoration, the enthusiastic staff and the choices we as customers can make. And if there is anything to complain about, the WiFi was weak and unstable. But to be completely honest, for me they could take it away completely. In my opinion, they could ban the use of mobile phones in the restaurant, but other customers may find it very important to be reachable. (I thought that was a shame..) My most beautiful memory of MasQi is being taken by the hand, learning to relax, all ¨knots¨ are literally and figuratively unraveled and also the fantastic healthy meals. I already wrote it to my friend, MasQi: you never want to leave here...! Thank you very much for your efforts to make my trip unforgettable, I hope to be able to book another wellness trip with you in 2024.

I really enjoyed this short break at MasQi. Everything was arranged perfectly. At Masqi you immediately get a very welcome feeling. Very quiet atmosphere and tastefully decorated. The food is delicious and the staff is really personal and helpful. Yoga good and the massages very good and nice that you can take walks directly from the hotel. I also found your service and quick replies very good. I will get back to you again for my next wellness trip.

We love this

  • The spectacular Yoga dome
  • Sonia and the super friendly service and team
  • Delicious macrobiotic food
  • Beautiful natural surroundings, great for walks
  • Cosy, beautifully styled and great eye for detail

This not so much...

  • Location might be a bit isolated for some
  • Many Spanish guests
  • There is no spa or gym, yet there are a few treatment rooms, an indoor meditation room and a kitchen for cooking workshops/demonstrations

Our tips

  • The sunset from "El capollet del Águila", only 20 minutes from MasQi gives you stunning views of the entire Valley of the Vinalopó
  • Don´t miss out on a dip in the "Toll Blau" Vinalopó, an amazing waterfall and a pool of turquoise water surrounded by beautiful forest, the best hidden spot in inland Alicante
  • The walks through the Sierra de Mariola are always a surprise, you will find dozens of aromatic species, a walk full of wonderful smells
  • The climb up to the castle of Banyeres where you can see for miles over inland Alicante
  • You should taste "Herrero" (a typical liquor of local aromatic herbs)
  • Most clients don´t tend to want to leave the retreat but if you want to go for a walk, the medieval quarter of Bocairent and its caves are very interesting
