Ananda ... yoga ...bliss... Ibiza?
No, we wouldn't necessarily have put yoga and Ibiza together either - but they complement each other perfectly! The sensual side of the island is our spirit too. We are providing you with a real break and not just a yoga retreat. You are completely free to choose which elements to dip in and out of (as well as our pool).
Read below for details of all that Santa Eulalia has to offer, only a stone's throw away from Villa 2. The Ananda Team does not want you to miss out of course, so on top of all this, we also offer guided / accompanied trips to places further afield on the island - we take you there and bring you back home.
We are unique; this is so much more than a yoga retreat; this is a true break with tranquil 'chill-out' sunsets, clear waters and loving vibes - need we say more?
Babylon Beach Bar
This beach bar is a small haven away from all the hustle and bustle where you can carry the calm of Ananda with you. It is situated on the road north just out of Santa Eulalia. Surrounded by sharp cliffs and the mellow ocean, reinforce your inner peace and spend an afternoon gazing at the vista and breathing in paradise. It offers the option of sunbathing and relaxing during the day and fine dining at night but unlike many of its counterparts around the island, the emphasis is on chilling out all of the time. No big name DJs or branded parties, the resident DJ, George Solar, plays strictly on a mellow tip, this truly is a spot to relax and unwind.
Ananda combined with “pure life”…what could be better! Pura Vida is situated on the road north of Santa Eulalia. This high- class cocktail / champagne venue offers luxury sunbeds and visiting famous DJs and hey, we may be a yoga retreat, but we also want to nurture your sensual side so immerse yourself in the high life too! The sharp contrast of our Finca and this beautiful, indulgent and suave venue may be just what you need!
To pair with our Ananda treatments here at the Finca, we urge you to visit Nikki Beach, situated further north of Santa Eulalia. A unique combination of beauty, boutiques, top-notch food in the restaurant area and a swimming pool – this is a place for those of you who want to feel physically pampered as well as spiritually! Almost a mini-retreat in itself (although not a patch on our serenity of course!), visit Nikki Beach if you want to fulfil your fantasy of owning fine yachts and feeling elite for the day…
Go vegan, go veggie, go healthy at this lovely, traditional café in Santa Eulalia itself – renowned for its “soul food” ethos, this is the perfect accompaniment to your Ananda experience. This is a very happy and relaxed venue where you can relax and unwind, chat to locals and feel part of the island all afternoon. Passion Café is health food made cool – go!
Well, what can we say – if you haven’t fallen in love with Ibiza yet, you will after visiting Las Dalias. It encompasses the heart, mind and soul of the island and it reflects the “life and food” philosophy that we also aim to provide here at Ananda. Situated in San Carles, a 15 minute car journey or bus ride north of Ananda, we recommend you leave yourself at least 5 hours to thoroughly take in all this wonderful venue has to offer. No frills, no yachts, no luxury - just simple, natural beauty with an organic and hippy vibe. Open from 8am till right through the night, you can eat, drink, dance and shop until the sun rises! We cannot think of a more perfect ending to your time at Las Dalias than heading home to our Finca.
Take a short bus ride to Es Cana Hippy Market for those necessary gifts for loved ones – or even yourself. Find local, global and colourful products on stalls that shelter beneath pine trees and wander through narrow pathways under the sun or the stars. A great ambience is provided not just by the natural setting, but by the drummers, musicians and entertainers that serenade your shop…
Santa Eulalia Beach is nestled beneath the picturesque promenade of the town. Take some time out from Ananda on these beckoning white sands. The clean waters are transparently refreshing and those of you who want to invigorate and energise after meditation, can find water-sports, boat trips and other activities available here.
Mariner's Beach is situated at the southern part of town. It is only a 10 minute walk from the centre and is renowned for its variety of cafes and restaurants lining the promenade. Interestingly, it lies at the mouth of Ibiza’s only river and has a finer sand and shallower waters. There is also a harbour that you can walk to and a short river walk that takes you to the neighbouring resort of Siesta. Highly recommended if you fancy an early morning walk from Ananda!
Only a 15 bus or taxi ride from Ananda – prepare yourself! Ibiza town buzzes more than bumblebees and it is a gem of a place. High-end shopping and market stalls await. This is a 24- hour town and is not just for the clubbers! Steeped in history you can ramble for hours and visit the Old Town, the Marina and Port, the Gay area, art galleries and museums. There is a very international vibe here and it works a treat. You will feel totally transported from the quiet tranquillity of Ananda and it is an experience like no other.
