About the hotel.

We will be staying in a fabulous 4 star hotel, the Bahia del Sol in Santa Ponsa, (www.hotel-bahia-del-sol.com) situated SW of Palma with two great beaches just 3 minutes walk from your door. After the yoga you can swim in either of the hotel’s two great pools. It’s the perfect time of year for you to enjoy the late summer sun, clear blue skies and, yes , the Mediterranean Sea is warm! The hotel is just 25 minutes from the airport and close to all local amenities. Outside the hotel you can drop into one of the many bars, cafes and restaurants for a snack or glass of wine or just chill with friends over a coffee watching the world go by.

About Mallorca.

Mallorca is a stunningly beautiful island and a sporting paradise for both sun and water sports enthusiasts as well as keen walkers and cyclists who enjoy the wooded Traumantara mountains. It’s called the gem of the Mediterranean and is only 2-2.5 hours flight from the UK and Ireland! The climate in October is perfect, not too hot! We may have a little rain – which is why the island is so green and beautiful, but it never lasts for long.

Fun for the afternoons.

You are also invited to join in the many and varied events planned for each day to make this holiday both interesting and relaxing. I have been visiting the island for 30 years and know many of its secrets which will make this the perfect holiday on an idyllic island.

Walking in paradise.

On one of the days you will be invited for an easy walk in the Tramuntana mountains to explore the secret old ways through the wooded slopes, stopping for Tapas and refreshments in a high mountain hamlet with breathtaking views. (Trainers or walking shoes needed for the trail.)

*Original Spanish -* *Latin dancing! *

On one of the afternoons you are invited to join a leading Spanish Dance teacher – Manello Castello, (who specialises in Argentinian Tango) at his Dance Studio in Palma for a wonderful exhibition and workshop! So bring your dancing shoes and don’t panic, he’s been teaching for 30 years and knows how to get two left feet working together and the rest of you looking good! Apparently it’s all about the hips! Also in between getting into the groove we will enjoy the tranquillity of his beautiful home, gardens, orange groves and outdoor patios. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.

*Seeing the very best acrobats in action!!*

Mallorca is also home to the world famous musical and acrobatic show called Pirates! For those who love a good night out, don’t miss this one.. It’s one of those shows you should see once in your life and, yes, Captain Barbosa will truly come alive in this night to remember. And it’s only 15 minutes away from our hotel.
(Tickets are extra to the course fees).
