We all loved MasQi! The help beforehand with our bookings and transfers was great, Thank You. First impressions of the area were that it was beautiful, the bedrooms were lovely with good quality bed linen! The food was just amazing and the staff all so kind and helpful. The Yoga I felt we fell between the two offerings, Vinyasa was a little too fast and the Hatha a little too slow, but after a couple of days I felt we got into the sessions. The only criticism I might have, is that I do like it when the Yoga teacher walks around and adjusts a pose. Overall, though the holiday was amazing, the staff and the food was really excellent! It was also great to be able to walk out and go for a hike.

What a wonderful place to relax! It was the first time for me to book such a trip. What I was looking for and really needed: to be taken care off, a more holistic approach to the stress and burn-out I was in. And I found that at MasQi. Peace, serenity, beautiful surroundings but also beautiful accommodation, small scale, the softness and warmth of the entire staff. They are very good at approaching and treating you in a personal and professional manner. The room was very spacious, cozy and clean and perfect for a week's stay. The yoga classes are very good, nice and varied. Biodanza and meditation surprisingly good, energetical therapy (Reiki-like) and massages gave me so much relief and were of unprecedented quality!
I thought it was magical: I was able to surrender to everything MasQi had to offer; those who work there with such dedication have been able to make a huge contribution to my well-being. I came back so much lighter (by the way, with 1.5 kg more body weight) The kitchen is phenomenal! Very good, varied and healthy food but the portions (2x 4 courses afternoon + evening) are large!!! It was nice that fish was served once a week: the macrobiotic food surprised me positively, but after a week I really longed for fish/meat/dairy/eggs.
But maybe I would have liked more information in my room about the choices in terms of massages, treatments, the explanation and working method, a menu or fruit / juices that you can order in addition to water (and tea + kettle) in your room or in the waiting areas.

I have been back from Masqi since yesterday.
I really enjoyed my week of Me-time. I was warmly welcomed by the team and the food was super tasty. What a beautiful energy that place radiates. I really enjoyed it!
Caroline, Belgium - 11 October 2022
Beautiful surroundings, the energy is fantastic, soothing!
Good food, massages, nice weather and wonderful yoga/meditations made the wellness break complete for us. It was just the combination of everything, which made it special, it's hard to put into words.
Judith, Netherlands - 06 October 2022
I certainly enjoyed my time at MasQi. It's been a long time since I was this rested.
Masqi is a particularly beautiful place. They work with a lot of love and attention. Everyone was very caring and personal. My best experience was Irena's moving meditation. I did it alone and that brought out a lot in me. I have nothing but praise for this place. Great food, clean, lovely people and a nice place to be. I will definitely come back again!
It was not exactly clear to me beforehand what the concept of Masqi was. I think that could be expressed a little better on the website. By that I mean that it is a hotel where you can do different yoga and meditation and therapies (I don't call this therapy myself, they are alternative medicine sessions, no idea what you call it :) but it is all open. You are not obliged to participate in everything and everyone makes different choices. That aspect of being free in your choices, could perhaps be better described. I personally found that very pleasant, but you should not expect that is a group retreat.

It was amazing! I have no frame of reference; it was the first time that I did such a yoga / wellness retreat and then also just by myself. But it just made sense. Beautiful location. Nice atmosphere. small scale. Good intake consultation. Attentive lovely service minded people. Nicely thought out and implemented concept. Delicious food, yoga, meditation classes and massages; nice spacious room (upgrade to Jr Suite was a good decision). And also the weather was beautiful, which helps!
Transfers well arranged. I received your goodie bag on the 2nd day. Thank you!
Anja, Netherlands - 24 May 2022
It is, in one word, AMAZING here. Optimal enjoyment, reflection, inspiration and relaxation. I cannot imagine a better place to do this. Everything is perfect! Thanks for arranging everything and the SIS present.
Tatiana, Netherlands - 24 April 2022
Everything was perfectly organised. Our first impression was that it was very peaceful and isolated from noise, roads etc.
We liked the fact that everything was organised (although with a certain flexibility so that they don't become "obligations") and that there are facilities to borrow equipment if you don't have it or don't take it with you on the trip (mattress, blanket, etc.).
We didn't miss anything, everything was perfect. Maybe the menu was "excessive" considering the timetable (breakfast at 10.15, lunch at 14.00 and dinner at 20.00); lighter dishes would be preferable. The rooms, which are very nice, the sunsets and the peace of the area are our souvenirs.
Blanca, Spain - 17 April 2022
SIS has organised my holiday very well. What first struck me when I arrived was the tranquillity and beauty of the place.
I really liked having the possibility to do yoga classes combined with therapies and treatments that help to relax and be in a natural environment. I didn't miss anything. I was able to relax for a few days and everyone was very friendly, the food was great, the surroundings, the yoga classes, the therapies. I look forward to coming back :)
Catarina, Spain - 09 March 2022
Masqi was a retreat from beginning til the end with beautiful facilities and welcoming staff that tend to your every wish! I couldn’t have enjoyed it more! Thank you very much!
Sarah, United Kingdom - 20 October 2021
Many thanks for everything. It was amazing! What a gem. Totally not yet discovered by the foreign tourists…
I had - but this was only fun - not expected it to be so Spanish. Few staff members speak English, but you always manage.
The food, the surroundings, the relaxation and not having to do anything made my wellness break complete. I was really able to recharge.
The best thing was the view and the food. The kitchen is really at Michelin star level. Unbelievable!
Danielle, Netherlands - 23 July 2021
I really enjoyed my stay at MasQi! It was certainly well prepared by SIS, very nice that you thought along about all practical questions! My first impression was that the area was beautiful, quiet, and special. Everyone was helpful, friendly, and clearly out to make everyone feel comfortable and as relaxed as possible. The massage immediately after arrival was just perfect!
The yoga sessions, delicious food and the special energy reading were top notch!
Carolien, Netherlands - 18 May 2021
The service of SIS Wellness Holidays has been excellent, starting with the perfect recommendation to go to MasQi. The first impression, even before entering the house, was that I had made the right decision to spend a week here. The surroundings of the Sierra de Mariola are beautiful, the house is cozy in every corner and the people who welcome you make you feel at home from minute one. For me, yoga, meditation, peace and walks in that special environment are the perfect complement to a change in diet and habits cultivated during years of urgency and hasty digestion. Everything at The Energy House invites you to choose a healthier life. I did not miss anything. I find it a luxury to be in a place where there is no television. The most beautiful memory I have from my MasQI holiday is that on the third day of detoxification, the senses are clearly more open and one is much more awake. I remember the sun on my face in the morning with a new, rejuvenated color and warmth… Thank you!
Javier, Spain - 06 January 2021
The peace and tranquility the place breaths is excellent! The most beautiful memory is simply being able to enjoy the tranquility of the hotel and also its macrobiotic cuisine (all exquisite) and kukicha tea. A complete new experience on many levels, loved it!
Mª Carmen, Spain - 20 July 2020
A very nice experience: beautiful surroundings, the hospatility and people were lovely, a nice yoga session, a wonderful massage, very healthy and tasteful ¨different¨ food, a very beautiful and interesting sound bath session and what an experience to do all of that on your own. And what I really liked as well was your note and present on the bed upon arrival. I'd like to book with you again, but longer, and probably with someone else.
Marloes, Netherlands - 18 March 2020
The preparation of my holiday by SIS was perfect; they answered my emails and questions really fast. MasQi was so beautiful as well, the environment was amazing and very quiet which was exactly what I was looking for. I think a Yoga break should consist a beautiful place to sleep, peaceful silence and good massages. The food was delicious and walking with the resort dog was so nice. And, the SIS Goodie Bag on my bed was amazing!
Anneke, Netherlands - 21 February 2020
The views of the garden, the massages by Mariela and the macrobiotic food. They have made me recover and regain a lot of energy! Sonia, the owner, has done a great job. We were also impressed by the house itself, it is decorated in detail and with a great taste. For me the luxury in this experience is the beautiful location of the house and the fantastic team at your disposal!
Cristina, Spain - 10 December 2019
I had an absolute wonderful week at MasQi. Everyone from the staff was super friendly and helpful. The Yoga and Meditation classes were professional and pleasant. I really want to thank SIS for the whole organisation. I will absolutly recommend you to my friends!
Véronique, Switzerland - 22 July 2019
Just delighted by the overall experience of dealing with both SIS and Masqi. It was WONDERFUL! I found a spa on google and contacted you – but I mentioned it wasn’t suitable for me and you suggested MasQi and one other but it was your kind attention and professionalism that sold you to me - thank you x
Lynne, United Kingdom - 17 January 2019
Unique experience in a great place! The program was very nice! Excellent accommodation, great food, friendly staff and a nice, varied program. However, on weekends there were not many people alone and many Spaniards who did not speak English. I had expected something more international, but nevertheless I enjoyed myself! Thank you for organising it.
Sandra, Netherlands - 30 May 2018
It was a unique and incredibly enriching experience! It’s difficult to find words that are able to describe how nice it was. Sonia is a wonderful host and teacher with a great team. We had yoga classes, meditations and massages every day. I’ve had many good massages in my life, but these were outstanding! The house, the garden, the yoga dome and the view are simply breathtaking. Everything is nicely arranged, with a lot of style and love for details. The macro food is beautifully prepared and soooo delicious.
A massive thank you to the entire staff, including Lobo, the dog, the good soul of the house, who showed us the way when we went hiking in the stunning countryside surrounding the house. And a big thank you to you for suggesting the place and providing such a great service.
Alexandra, Switzerland - 21 November 2017
It was a lovely location and beautiful surroundings with for me sufficient activities (Pool, Yoga, Massage). For other people maybe a bit boring, but for me just what I was looking for! But the most positive point was the staff: all super friendly and helpful!!
Laura, Netherlands - 22 September 2017
It truly is a special and unique place and everything was perfect, with a lovely atmosphere and kind, helpful staff.
Our yoga improved soooo much under the mastery and guidance of Sonya and we have all said that we'll eat more healthy from now on as it made us feel great!
It was a fantastic few days which we shall cherish and remember.
Julia F, United Kingdom - 16 August 2017
The excellent yoga instructor and the friendly staff, in combination with the beautiful landscape and architecture, made my stay at MasQI extraordinary!
Orjan B, Sweden - 25 July 2017
Fantastic, relaxing and detoxing of mind and body in beautiful surroundings with exceptional care and attention
Theresa M., United Kingdom - 12 June 2017
An experience which is more than recommended for people who want to have a quiet, relaxed stay in a friendly, really comfortable and different surrounding to the holiday routines. Both the staff and the management as well as the gastronomic offer gave us a perfect weekend.
