The New Day Instituto private villa is situated on a post-volcanic hill, in one of the most interesting islands of the Macaronesia, Fuerteventura. The house spans an area of 300 square meters; it is a place made out of love for the ocean, the sun, people, and an incredible space. Beautiful weather all year round, a secluded location far from the bustle of tourist destinations, and the absence of neighbors are some of the greatest advantages of this charming spot.

The villa has a large, private swimming pool available to the guests, a terrace, a dining area, a breathtaking patio, and a garden. The location makes the villa a perfect accommodation all year round, offering peace and quiet, privacy, comfort, and an atmosphere of relaxation in the shadow of the nearby volcano. You can also enjoy the Canary sun in a hammock, while reading your favorite book, or celebrate the local cuisine, atmosphere, and folklore in the company of the delicate ocean breeze.

The villa can accommodate ten persons in five rooms: three double rooms with twin beds and two double rooms with a double bed. Two of the rooms have en suite bathrooms, while the other three bathrooms are located in the hallway.

The schedule times are specifically balanced between events and workshops, where free time is given. The free times are for you to enjoy the space, read a book, or relax by the pool, so that you can get the most out of the retreat.

The raw food chef will teach you special techniques and raw kitchen tricks that can help you consume your food in optimum creative and interesting ways. You will learn new techniques by using blenders, juicers, food-processors, and spiralizers that keep enzymes and vitamins all intact. He will also be giving you talks and presentations about super herb tonics and elixirs, explaining how the herbs help the body respond positively to stress and emotional upheaval.

In addition, you will also have chocolate making session, which includes making drinks, pies, and gourmet bonbons. At the end of the week, you will have an alchemic chocolate party.

Your holiday will take place in Fuerteventura. Some claim that the name means the power of happiness, while others, drawing inspiration from the French conquistadors, call the place an intense adventure; and for some more, it is the island of strong winds. All these names are correct since Fuerteventura is an island where all elements meet. Here clash the desert winds of the Sahara, the currents of the Atlantic Ocean, and the volcanic, fiery soil of the island.

Over 150 kilometers of sandy dunes and beaches surrounding the island, crystal clear water, picturesque bays, and charming towns, make Fuerteventura the perfect place for rest and relaxation, for the lovers of sunbathing, water sports, explorers of the local flavors and traditions, and those looking for pristine nature, protected by the UNESCO biosphere reserve.

Breaking off food addictions, is not easy. There are chemicals in the processed food that get your brain cells addicted. Cooked food allows pathogenic microorganisms to proliferate, creating a vicious cycle. As a result of this, you get sick, tired, overweight, stiff, and foggy, for all the over consumption of low quality food. To break your food addiction, you should be saturating your body with green juices and living foods, such as organic fruits and vegetables. For this retreat, you will be learning how to cook raw, organic super foods and eat for health and beauty.

Be a beach bum

The Jandia beaches have white sands and turquoise waters; they are situated in the southern part of the island and offer visitors kilometers of crystal-clear waters. There are only a few tourists around. La Concha in el Cotillo reef is an enclosed water reservoir with a natural reef and it is, undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, with fine white sand and small waves.

Explore Lobos Island

Lobos Island is a secluded spot full of peace and serenity. This adventure park, once inhabited only by seals and sea lions, is currently a genuine place of escape, where you can put all your daily stress behind. At Lobos, you will discover plants and animals that cannot be found elsewhere.

Keep the adventures alive

The Corralejo adventure park is comprised of nine kilometers of large beaches and small bays. The desert-like appearance of this space makes it hard to believe that one of the most paradise beaches on these islands can be found right at the end of the dunes. This is a protected area; it has nine kilometers of coast lines, from the small bays that offer seclusion in the sun to large beaches that never seem to end.

Take beautiful pictures at Betacunria

The island's first town is located on one of the driest parts of the island. It is an archaic town founded in the 15th century with some of the most picturesque buildings on the island. It used to be the capital of Fuerteventura.

Windsurf in paradise

Thanks to the long, sunny days, strong winds, and waves up to two meters tall, the island has been the perfect spot for windsurfing and kitesurfing for many years. These sports have already become a tradition on the island.
