At the end of 2019, we completed a wonderful experience with the fabulous guests who joined us for the 3rd annual WALK THE ROCK event.

WALK THE ROCK is spread over 6 days when we walk our island from North to South (yes 6 days, it is not an extreme endurance event, we took the time to enjoy it!). This event was created exclusively for us by Blackstone Treks & Tours, who created routes that take you on a different journey through the most beautiful sights on our island also the most stunning landscape imaginable.

The best of two worlds… luxury eco accommodation at Finca de Arrieta, a peaceful, rural setting by Arrieta beach and a unique 6-day walking adventure with Blackstone Treks & Tours. Experience the hidden Lanzarote in all its natural beauty!

You just need to be in good health, and like a nice walk, to join us in 2020 as we do it again…

CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING:

Earlier this month we hosted Discovery, a leading UK Based recruitment & training company who were celebrating 20 years in business and bringing the whole of their company to Lanzarote for a three-day retreat.

“We work with some fantastic people” commented CEO, Jonathan Evans, “and this is our way to show gratitude for their continued efforts, expand horizons, continue our learning and focus on well-being. This very much supports the Discovery Way, of ‘learning in action’.  To do so in a very stimulating environment makes it all the better.”

DISCOVERY chose Palacio – Mansion & Estate & Casa Volcan, 2 of Lanzarote’s most stunning properties, both located in Tabyesco.

We look forward to reading their Lanzarote story soon and we will be sure to share their content when its published.

 “Our stay at Lanzarote Retreats was just amazing! The property is a dream came true, which allow you to combine comfort and nature at the same time. We had never slept in a yurt before and we just love the feeling. You can listen to the sound of the waves and the flow of the wind singing you a lullaby. Definitely recommended”  Eleonora and Cristina.


INTRODUCING AINARA…

Ainara is the latest member of the Lanzarote Retreats team. Ainara heads up Lanzarote Retreats quality control. As we always say, personal service is everything, every guest experience should be exceptional. Therefore, Ainara’s role is to ensure we maintain the highest standards in every accommodation. Inspections are vital, but so in inspiration, what new touches can raise the bar? That is the question Ainara asks herself many times a day!

My Favorite beach is the one by Finca de Arrieta called la Garita….where you can have nice Seafood in a little restaurant by the beach and then chill out with a Mojito listening to live music. It’s About spending quality time in a Safe environment. It is also where you can bump into many of our lovely guests, from all over Europe, and share happy moments with them.
