Re-Treat Me! A Brand New Woman-Centric Retreat at Can Verru

Last week, Can Verru played host to a brand new retreat – Retreat Me!

The brainchild of the Nikki Porteus from We Are Beautiful Ibiza and Natalie Gillot from Love Pilates Ibiza, having seen so many retreats at Can Verru in the past, now seemed like the perfect time to try one of their own.

“We have the perfect space at Can Verru Ibiza! We are lucky enough to know some of the most incredible inspiring teachers and therapists on the island. Add to that friends begging us to create something to give them a break away from the craziness of kids, work and life – it was a no brainer!”

Natalie and Nikki say the objective of the retreat was to bring together a group of busy women, to provide well deserved time away from the day-to-day routine. To relax, nourish their bodies with plant-based delicious food, exercise, be pampered and enjoy some down time.  Also they really wanted them to take home some new knowledge around living a healthier lifestyle.

When asked why Can Verru makes the perfect venue for a retreat, Nat and Nikki said “Can Verru Ibiza has become a well known retreat location over the past years amongst fitness trainers and Yoga teachers. It is set in a tranquil location near some of the most beautiful beaches and countryside in Ibiza. There are plenty of hiking routes, more than enough open space for workouts, and it comes complete with its own beautiful Yoga Shala in the forest. It is also fully equipped with fitness equipment and Yoga kit. It comfortably sleeps 12 people and more can be accommodated very near by.”

And it seems that their wealth of experience made the retreat run especially smoothly. All the hard work was done in the lead up and as they both have different strengths, they thought it actually was was a breeze! They were so happy and they worked perfectly together!

So what did they learn from hosting their first retreat?

“We received great feedback from everything! The food was a highlight, provided by our friend Wendy at LoveBites Ibiza.  The group raved about the yoga sessions provided by the lovely Rachel at Rachel Spain Yoga, focusing on a chakra theme. We also added in a kundalini Yoga session with Nicole Shenton which was really special.
We had an informative talk by nutritionist Evie at Evie Nutrition, on the subject of digestive health.  It seems bloating is a common issue and some really useful tips were offered.
We held a talk on hormone health through the various ages of womanhood hosted by Cyd Jewellery. Plus a motivating talk on self love by Lydia Kimmerling which was a fascinating insight into the impact of negative thoughts about ourselves. This was a lightbulb moment for many!
On top of this daily pilates and outdoor workouts by Natalie at Love Pilates Ibiza, afternoon massages in the cosy tipi provided by Sarah Langlois and her team of skilful therapists and clinical hypnosis sessions by Claire from Valencia, dealing with a few anxiety related issues.
To  add to the wellness sessions, we organised a lovely hike through the gorgeous Ibizan countryside taking in the stunning view of Es Vedra.
We even had a really fun night out in Ibiza town at a dinner in a traditional tapas bar. (With a few bottles of wine, after all it’s all about balance!) Followed by Halloween celebrations at the world famous Pikes Hotel!
This schedule was expertly managed by Nikki who has many years experience in spa management, so even though this all sounds like a lot to fit it, it was actually seamless!”

Can Verru Retreat Season!

As the summer party season in Ibiza draws to a close, Can Verru settles down for some more sedate times. Our retreat season starts as the Closing Parties end and brings a much needed air of tranquility to the villa.

 

Can Verru is fast becoming the most talked about retreat venue that Ibiza has to offer – and that comes as no surprise!

Not only does the villa have multiple en-suite rooms, a swimming pool and an astroturf outdoor football pitch, ideal for alfresco exercising, it also has a fully equipped kitchen designed for catering for large numbers, an outdoor eating area with BBQ, plus a custom-designed Balinese style yoga studio within the grounds and a secluded massage and therapy area hidden in the trees.

The surrounding areas also offer lots of beautiful routes for hikes and walks.

Check out the latest retreat schedule right HERE and don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like to attend or host a retreat with us…

 

 

The Closing Parties Are Almost Here!

The end of September and beginning of October marks the conclusion of yet another season on the magical White Isle.

Here are Team Can Verru’s top picks for the parties to end all parties this year.


Glitterbox

Glitterbox is a firm favourite at Can Verru! We just love the gay cabaret, the house and disco classics plus the anything-goes attitude! It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, when the glitter cannon goes off to the sound of Alison Limerick, everyone goes bananas!

Playing at the star-studded closing party on Friday 28th September are Dimitri From Paris, Louie Vega, Roger Sanchez, Joey Negro, Nightmares On Wax, Greg Wilson and Simon Dunmore. A veritable who’s who of house legends!


DJ Harvey at Pikes

The much revered ‘DJ’s DJ’ Harvey has held a summer residency at the hedonistic labyrinth of Pikes for the last couple of years. Every Monday night, the island’s elite and most discerning music lover’s descend upon the rabbit hole that is Freddie’s at Pikes to see the master himself take them on a multi-genre musical journey over the space of 6 unadulterated hours. The Closing is this Monday 24th September. Get there early to beat the queues!


Elrow

Since moving from Space to Amnesia, Elrow has gone from strength to strength. At the closing party on the 6th October, expect the usual outlandish production, perfectly choreographed pyrotechnics, inflatables galore and loads of wild fun! The most outrageous party on the island, we reckon the closing will be even more over-the-top than usual!

And if you fancy making a week out of the closing parties in the finest of luxury, Can Verru have one final week free which just happens to coincide with the big end of season blow out – 22nd to 29th September.

Can Verru Recommends… Restaurant Juls Ibiza

Jul’s is a modern Greek restaurant garden lounge, located in the south of Ibiza on your way to Sa Caleta beach. It describes itself as a mediterranean cuisine with a Greek twist, serving fresh and innovative dishes realised by their fine dining Greek chef… What we love about Jul’s is how eating here is a culinary adventure with an added difference, made by local people only who have imposed their style in a way to make it special.

With both an indoor and outdoor eating area, the emphasis is on modern comfort with lots of airy space.

Can Verru loves the food, service and atmosphere of Juls! We highly recommend it. You can book a table by calling them on +34 871 03 53 30 or even by WhatsApp!
