Ayurveda Immune Booster

from 7 nights, double room, Full board

£1,505

Our body is permanently exposed to a variety of "attackers", such as viruses, bacteria and fungi. Whether these can harm our body depends primarily on our defenses - our immune system.

Ayurveda says that 80% of our immune system is located in the digestive tract. Accordingly, when we talk about strengthening the immune system, the top priority is to strengthen the digestive system. This system has the task of recognizing all substances that are absorbed through food, the respiratory tract and the skin, processing them and then either incorporating them for the benefit of health or excreting them as quickly as possible.

Ojas" and the so-called waste products (Ama) also play a decisive role for the immune system. Ojas, is called the finest relative substance in the body, which is the result of a complete digestion and transformation of all substances. Our "Ojas" makes us vital, immune and happy. Ayurveda calls Ojas the most important immune-boosting substance of the body.

The waste substance, or Ama, is created when food or even mental matter cannot be fully processed by our digestive system, thereby hindering our vital energy. Ama weakens and burdens the immune system.

    ‘Seeeeeeeery relaxing!!!’ Original review (automatically translated)

    A very nice, small hotel right on the coast. Both the therapists, yoga teachers and Ayurveda doctors were very, very good. All staff were very friendly and courteous. The food could have been a bit tastier - even in a Panchakarma healing therapies. There is the possibility to use sauna and pool in the neighboring hotel, but otherwise the leisure possibilities in the immediate vicinity are very limited. Due to the tight schedule of a healing therapy with many treatments, one often has only one hour that one would like to spend on a walk. However, walks by the sea or in nature are not possible in the immediate vicinity or are associated with greater effort, e.g. public transport. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Small hotel with good atmosphere. Very helpful and selectively friendly staff. The wifi was a disaster though.
    • Service and hospitality
      No matter what request I had - be it help with booking an excursion, or a printout of the boarding pass on departure - all requests were met promptly and to my complete satisfaction.
    • Cuisine
      Breakfast was very tasty, lunch and dinner have some room for improvement. Some dishes were spiced very unusual.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Pool and SPA only in the sister hotel next door. Pool made a good impression. By the pool is also an access to the sea (rocky coast and accessible only by ladders), which is monitored. The sea was heavenly and very clean: many fish (snorkeling and diving offers).
    • Treatments and programmes
      The treatments were extra class. All therapists are very well trained - women are massaged by women. The doctors were also very competent and courteous. So were the yoga instructors. Different styles of yoga are offered.

    • Hotel in general
      Perfect for an Ayurveda retreat. Large rooms, nice balcony, everything available. Wifi could definitely be better and the chairs on the balcony more comfortable, because as an Ayurveda guest you spend a lot of time in the room/on the balcony. The garden area or the sunbathing possibilities in the shade could be a bit bigger.
    • Cuisine
      The buffet was very varied.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The individual treatment rooms were nicely decorated.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Massages absolutely on a high level. The doctors always had an open ear.

    The Ayurveda treatments at the Hotel Alpina Atlantico are exceptional. The doctor is very individual with everyone. There were four of us and each had different treatments. show more

    • Cuisine
      Balanced Ayurvedic food. But we would have liked better bread, eggs and also dairy products for breakfast.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Exceptional Ayurvedic treatments. Pool unfortunately not available. Had to be used in the hotel Galomor. Since my husband is not so good on foot, this was partly difficult. Transfer would have been good here.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The highlight was the Ayurvedic treatments. Gigantically good

      Selection and balance could have been better, both for breakfast and lunch and dinner. The food was labeled as vegetarian food, the selection for this was more geared to vegan and far too little choice for vegetarian food.

      Spa service very good, spa and pool could be used by the neighboring hotel.
