Arena Wellness holidays are hand-crafted breaks dedicated to providing you with the perfect location, facilities and professional experts to allow you the time and tranquility to focus on yourself and help you on your way to a happier, healthier and more successful life.

All our hotels are 4 or 5 stars, each with facilities to enhance your stay such as swimming pools and spas. All our experts are trained and certified in the UK and will work together to ensure that you get the most out of your time with us. Groups are kept deliberately small to ensure a high-quality experience for each one of our guests. An Arena Travel Tour Manager will be on hand in resort to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Nestled peacefully in the idyllic surroundings of Playa Blanca, the 5* H10 Rubicon Palace is a firm favourite with our Arena guests. Its impressive facilities and elegant interior offers a relaxing environment for our first wellness holiday.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of exercise that focuses on balance, posture, strength and flexibility. It's suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. Pilates is named after its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercise in the 1920s.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness meditation involves sitting silently and paying attention to thoughts, sounds, the sensations of breathing or parts of the body, bringing your attention back whenever the mind starts to wander. People who incorporate it into their lives often report heightened levels of happiness, patience, acceptance, and compassion, as well as lower levels of stress, frustration, and sadness.

DAY 1: LONDON - LANZAROTE

Meet your experts and Tour Manager at London Gatwick airport for your flight to Lanzarote and transfer to the hotel. For those of you that have arranged your own flights, or we have arranged to fly from one of the UK’s regional airports your transfer service will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel.

This evening we’ll enjoy a Welcome Drink and meet the rest of the group.

DAYS 2-7: PILATES & MINDFULNESS

Pre-breakfast Pilates session. Start the day the right way; Rosalind will take us through some Pilates stretches to slowly awaken both our bodies and minds. If the weather is fine, we will make the most of it and hold the session outdoors; perhaps in the beautifully spacious hotel gardens.

After breakfast each day we’ll explore a different theme in our mindfulness sessions with Helen. Mindfulness will run through all the week’s topics. Each session will include time for reflection, open conversation and plenty of tips and tools to take away.

The future you, who you want to be
This session is about identifying and connecting with the future person you want to be. How you feel emotionally and physically influences the life that you are experiencing. This session sets the tone for the work we will be doing throughout the week. The session includes a guided meditation and a walk through the gardens for some reflection time.

Sleep
This session is all about how to get great sleep, why it’s important, techniques to make sure that you rest well and ways to alter your approach to sleep. Plus, information on what to do if you wake up and can’t get back to sleep. It’ll cover breathing and reflection plus tweaks that can be made to your daily routines. After the session, you will be able to identify how to change your evening routine to increase rest. Once we are well rested everything feels much easier!

Energy
Together we’ll explore why energy is important and the areas in our lives where we want to gain better energy. We’ll cover food, drink and exercise. Plus, why happiness fuels us like nothing else! After our time together, you’ll be able to understand how to eat for energy in a lovely and easy to understand way, why happiness is important plus identify areas in your life that are sapping your energy.

The Wheel of Life
This session can be so eye opening; it’s a visual representation of how we feel about our life. It shows clearly what’s out of balance and we’ll discuss the actions you could take to feel more in control and balanced. This session can often be emotional, so we take a break part way through for a walk in the fresh air.

Self-care
This final session is about how self-care should be in our daily routine; what that looks like for you and the actions to start implementing straight away. After the session you will be able to identify what self-care looks like for you and what you can commit to.

Free time for lunch (at own cost) and free afternoon. Lunch can be purchased at the hotel or you can take the lovely coastal walk into Playa Blanca, with its own shops and restaurants. In the afternoons, make the most of your three included entrances to the Despacio Thalasso Centre. Unwind and pamper yourself!

Late afternoon we’ll enjoy an early evening Pilates session with Rosalind.

Dinner and evening at leisure.

DAY 5: ISLAND TOUR

Today we’ll enjoy a tour of the island together, accompanied by a local English-speaking guide.

Our first stop of the day will be to see Los Hervideros, an amazing spectacle of nature. At a stretch of bizarrely shaped cliffs located just north of Playa Blanca an abundance of caves has been produced through solidification of lava and erosion. As the waves force water in the labyrinth of caves with such dramatic power it appears as if the sea is bubbling and boiling. We’ll walk around the pathways cut into the cliffs and watch the display below.

We continue north to El Golfo; a tiny fishing village but best known for its amazing green lagoon. The phenomenon is caused by sea water becoming trapped and turning a strikingly acidic green due to the algae that lives in the water.

Next, we travel to the centre of the island and a must for every visitor to Lanzarote. The Timanfaya National Park covers more than 50 square kilometres (just under 20 square miles) and is entirely made up of organic soil. From here we head to La Geria, located in the heart of the most important wine growing region in Lanzarote, where we’ll visit one of the wineries.

After a buffet lunch we travel north to Los Jameos de Agua; a series of lava caves and also the location of an art and culture centre created by local artist and architect Cesar Manrique. This will be our final stop of the day and from here we return to the hotel.

DAY 8: LANZAROTE - LONDON

Transfer to Lanzarote airport for your return flight home.
