Ayurveda Immune Booster

from 7 nights, double room, Full board

£1,644

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.

    ‘It was great!’ Original review (automatically translated)

    You feel completely taken care of there, everyone is incredibly nice and competent. The massages are insane and have already shown results after a week. All the physical problems I had have disappeared. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The hotel is personal, not too many rooms. Everything is clean. If you like it very modern, you will have to wait for the renovation 2025, but I found it wonderful there. The rooms are large, beds very good, bathroom also large. It is absolutely quiet (except for the yapping dogs of the neighborhood) and the view of the ocean magnificent.
    • Service and hospitality
      Everything has always been taken care of immediately and everyone is very friendly.
    • Cuisine
      The food is really good and everything is mega healthy of course.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      See below.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The doctor and the doctor bring years of experience and are responsive to all things. They are competent and downright cordial. The massages at Alpino Atlantico are awesome! You have a different one of the many masseuses every day, which is a good concept. They are all very well trained, competent and caring. The yoga instructors:inside also change daily and so does the yoga form. So you can get a taste of different yoga styles and compare. The daily stretch sessions supported the massages well.

    ‘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.

    • Cuisine
      I also eat vegan at home and got my money's worth out of vegetarian vegan cooking.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The pool in the partner hotel or the sea are easily accessible via a short walk.
    • Treatments and programmes
      I feel well rested, healthy and inspired to keep up the Ayurveda routines (tongue scraping, oil pulling, chyavanprash, tea, yoga, new diet tips) after the stay.

    • 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.
