NEW! Madeira Wellness Retreat

Madeira’s First Dedicated Health Retreat and Wellness Hotel!
This certified agritourism hotel in Madeira offers a transformative experience with an exclusive 5-night wellness program.

Madeira Wellness Retreat

Madeira: Known as the "Island of Eternal Spring" or the "Hawaii of the Atlantic," this lush subtropical haven captivates visitors with its stunning natural beauty and ideal environment for promoting health and well-being in body, mind, and spirit. The winters are famously mild, rarely dropping below 15°C even at night, and many days remain long and sunshine-filled throughout the season, making it an excellent destination for a year-round wellness retreat.

At Madeira Wellness Retreat, you'll find a team of experts dedicated to health and wellness. For over 14 years, their mission has been to guide as many people as possible towards optimal physical and mental well-being.

The Program

Do you want to wake up in the morning feeling energized, looking great, and ready to tackle your day? Are you running a big company, suffering from burnout, raising small children, recovering from illness, loss, or trauma, or training for a big athletic goal? Or are you simply at a crossroads in your life where you recognize it’s time to take charge of your health and well-being? Whatever your reasons, you are on the verge of becoming the best and healthiest version of yourself.

This 5-night wellness retreat is not a juice fast, boot camp, weight loss holiday, or fat farm but rather a healthy lifestyle retreat. The program focuses on what you can gain rather than on deprivation or restriction. Madeira Wellness Retreat follows a life-affirming schedule of inspiring activities with Portuguese touches and sessions unique to island living and the rich Madeiran culture.

Personalized attention is assured with a maximum of 12 guests per week, ensuring a tailored retreat experience focused on rejuvenation and renewal.

Each day at Madeira Wellness Retreat builds upon the previous one, with an ebb and flow to the schedule that allows guests to increase their stamina and endurance for more challenging hikes and activities. This healthy escape is a finely tuned blend of working out and “working in,” with a variety of sessions that strengthen the body, mind, and spirit in equal measure.

During your time at Madeira Wellness Retreat, you will quickly start to feel more energized, engaged, and empowered. You'll be armed with knowledge to help you make and maintain healthier choices when you return to your everyday life. It’s all about health and fitness in a way that supports and celebrates your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Expect a full-day program, different every day, that may include a combination of the following:

  • Yoga-inspired stretching for both yogis and non-yogis alike
  • Island coastal, mountain, and valley hiking
  • Cold water immersion
  • Swimming in natural pools and waterfalls
  • Functional fitness and strength training
  • Mindfulness and meditation sessions
  • Forest bathing
  • Breathwork
  • Various types of massages
  • Reading, relaxing, and unwinding by the yoga studio fireplace or enjoying the medicinal herb gardens, fruit trees, and pool

Conscious Cuisine

This 5-night wellness retreat promotes mindful eating as a lifestyle, not a diet. The menu focuses on gut-healing foods and is free of caffeine, refined sugar, gluten, dairy, alcohol, and meat during the stay. This break allows you to assess your health and energy levels. Count on sustainable and balanced nutrition, using local products from Madeira. The menu is not entirely plant-based but can be adapted for those who prefer it. It features a refreshing blend of nutritionally packed juices, smoothies, refined sugar-free desserts, and a delicious yet healthy plant-centric menu with a few sustainable fish options. Additionally, the team can provide personalized nutritional consultations to develop individual dietary programs.

A unique and inspiring retreat. What I loved most about Yeotown Madeira was not having to think! It was a total brain break which left the senses free to absorb the wonderful nurturing atmosphere, the delicious food, beautiful scenery and amazing sunsets. The instructors and guides are masters of their profession and inclusive regardless of ability. I'm still buzzing from the sense of achievement and rewarding views on the hikes. I was gently nudged out of my comfort zone and have returned feeling like my old self. Can't thank you all enough!
