    I enjoyed staying at the Lotus Pad, it was clean and peaceful.

    Its easier if one has a car as the times are restricted on the bus routes.

    Everything about the break was above expectations - the welcome, the yoga, the outstanding food and the location.

    The only thing I didn't like was having to go home at the end of the five days.

    The community life and the simplicity of everything. I spent 5 nice different days surrounded by great people and of course on an amazing island

    I was expecting the caravan to be in better conditions to be honest. The windows need to be fixed and I would take more care of the furniture cleanings. Overall it's been a great experience and the bed in the caravan is very comfy

    A perfect location to really leave city life behind. Wendy kindly lent me her bike to get around the local area & expert information on good local beaches etc

    The setting of the retreat was a perfect place for relaxation.

    It would have been good to be able to use the kitchen to save on going out for lunch & dinners.

    The yoga was brilliant each morning. Very challenging and educational. We learnt which part of the body each pose was working and how to perform it correctly. Wendy always offered more challenging alternatives for those of us who wanted to push ourselves in the class. I also really liked that she came around and corrected you - this is something that is particularly rare nowadays and really important to make sure poses are performed correctly. The food at the Retreat was absolutely amazing. Full of flavour and fresh local produce. I was also very fortunate to be on the equinox retreat with some amazing ladies who really made my stay!

    The Retreat itself is very homely and is set in beautiful gardens in a great area to explore in Ibiza. I would really recommend renting a car if you stay here as there are lots of nearby villages and small towns to visit and beautiful beaches to explore.

    At the time we went, there were a lot of mosquitos around so I would advise to bring a good repellent with you! There are plug-in repellents in the room and citronella candles lit outside but I was being bitten even with deet on so I would definitely come prepared!

    We had 11 women taking part in our retreat with only 2 bathrooms to share so this was sometimes quite tricky particularly at busy times in the evening before dinner and after the beach. Its an old, quaint house and we managed to cause a flood one evening from too many showers back to back so I think its worth bearing this in mind and being patient during your stay!

    Sometimes the evening meditations we did were quite repetitive so I would have preferred to have mixed some of these sessions up and varied this with some evening yoga.

    Amazing Yoga , intimate numbers so able to focus and adapt the practise to the group ! Really noticed a huge difference in myself after even just a week.

    Peaceful practice outside.

    Wendy is very knowledgeable and approachable when it come to the postures ... she knows her stuff !!

    Neils Breakfast was beautiful every morning ! Fresh , healthy and most importantly tastey , With such a nice atmosphere to accompany a great start to the day sitting round a large table out In the fresh Ibizian countryside air !

    Wonderful way to meet people , everyones really friendly and helpful !

    Great location On Ibiza , beautiful towns close by to eat and shop. Many near by beaches and markets.

    Accommodation is very Nice a Spanishy Iadian Yogi b&b theme throughout ! I noticed Wendy was very accomomidating for everyone throughout my stay ! I loved it that much I stayed even Longer , A few regular guests re visited while I was staying who like me got exactly what they needed at such an affordable price. I Highly recommend this place to anyone seeking great Yoga , fab breakfast and the chance to explore Ibiza and make some new friends. I have Learnt a lot so far from the Lotus Pad and I'm sure there is much more to come !

    If you don't have a car or scooter then try and get one , I more then managed to get around fine through grabbing lifts with other people or hitch hiking but I definitely recommend getting a car as I forgot how far everything is from A to B in Ibiza !

    The lotus ipad is the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and find that connection with yourself again. Wendy was very helpful and an excellent yoga teacher. I will definitely be looking to go back again.

    The location is a little tricky if you don't have a car.

    Was a home away from home - great teaching and food, very comfortable accommodation.

    A short walk to buses or taxis to explore the island.

    Wendy is a wonderful teacher. She is very focused and professional. Her way of teaching is envolving and deep, you cannot help but feeling part of the discipline more and more and in peace with yourself

    The location is beautiful, only the transports to get there or to reach the town were not really frequent

  • Danielle Zastrow Spanish State

    Wendy was an amazing instructor, she did more for me and my need to re-center myself than I think she intended to! The classes were informative and helped me get into my practice more, as a beginner living in a foreign country I haven't been to classes in a long time. The location was ideal to escape the party scene and enjoy some true relaxation, while also being within walking distance to a bus stop to nearby beaches. The breakfasts were beyond exceptional! Neil is an amazing chef, there was fresh cut fruit everyday, as well as, a heartier dish of eggs or cooked spinach, mushrooms, and avocado. Wendy was very helpful beyond the yoga classes too, providing information on places to see and things to do. I was sad to go in the end.

    The retreat is located in the countryside of Ibiza, expect the hot water to be scarce and to deal with some bugs here and there. Nothing unexpected when you are visiting the country.

    The Yoga was fantastic. It went beyond yoga in many ways. The food was also fabolus. Wendy lives an breaths yoga and is so informative and helpfull. The rooms are also comfortable and the whole gardens layed out very well.

    Struggling to think of anything I did not like.

    Lotus Pad es un lugar maravilloso: la casa es bonita y sencilla, y el porche está cubierto por un toldo para poder practicar yoga al aire libre sin el sol directo.

    Los desayunos son buenísimos, muy completos, y siempre incluyen algo elaborado al momento. Nos ha encantado pasar ese tiempo comiendo y conversando con Wendy, Hanna y los otros huéspedes, porque cada día descubríamos que teníamos algo nuevo en común, más allá del yoga.

    Me parece muy positivo que no se trate de un retiro como tal. En realidad es como una casa rural con yoga y desayuno incluido... después, cada uno se va a explorar la isla por su cuenta, y creo que son unas vacaciones muy equilibradas.

    La cantidad de mosquitos que hay en la isla... pero esto no es culpa de Wendy!

    I had an incredible stay at the Lotus Pad last August. Wendy is one of the best Yoga teachers I have ever met: she knows how to adapt to the level of each participant in her class, she will adjust your posture if wrong (so rare nowadays!). I especially enjoyed the moon classes, where restorative yoga was practiced. The contact with the other participants was easy, all in a very friendly atmosphere: We quickly arranged to go to the beach and have dinner all together, no one was left aside (unless the person wished to be on his/her own). I warmly recommend the Pad for a retreat or a shorter stay in Ibiza! Many thanks to Wendy and Neil for those fantastic memories!

    Wendy is an excellent yoga teacher and a very helpful person. She offered different classes every day , so I never got bored. The Lotus Pad has a great location. It's just fifteen minutes from the beach and is on the quieter and more peaceful side of the island. The place is nice, calm and with a lot of space for relaxing. The retreat includes breakfast and dinner and the cook, Neil, was excellent. Best vegetarian food ever! I wholeheartedly recommend Lotus Pad.

    Unfortunately, I believe that Charifa and her friend had different expectations of a yoga retreat in the countryside. They were provided with a tent, all bed linen, a towel, a yoga class and breakfast every day for the cost of £295 for week. Ibiza is an expensive island and this is a really good deal and other guests have often mentioned how reasonable this is. We are in the countryside so of course insects will come into the tent and as she kept food in there this will attract them a lot. We do not have space to store food for guests as our fridge is used to provide breakfast items for all our guests and we are a small place so do not have room for guest food also. Our guests are provided with breakfast but expected to eat out the rest of the time. Charifa and her friend I believe wanted a cheap place to stay so they could go out and party. Our place is quiet and our guests expect that it is a peaceful place without loud music or people disturbing other guests by coming in early hours of the morning. I suggested this to Charifa that perhaps they would prefer a place to party, but was met with a lot of arrogance and she was quite rude to myself and several guests. Had I known that they did not want to do the yoga or even get up for breakfast (her friend rarely joined us), then I would have suggested they find a 5 star hotel to stay in where they can pay this amount per night and get fresh sheets and towels every day and come and go whenever they want. People are entitled to do what they want on holiday. But as the teacher and owner of the retreat it is also up to me to make it a nice experience for everyone. People come here to relax, do yoga and go to the beach and to sleep.Since Charifa did not enjoy the yoga, the tent, or our place or like me then it was very difficult to make this a nice experience for her. I made allowances for her many medical complaints during classes by encouraging her to stop when she needed to. Clearly this was not enough for her and I think perhaps she would rather enjoy a more personalized yoga practice at a higher cost than she paid. As for the yoga being boring, I am pleased to hear nobody else thinks this. At no point did I suggest she could not go to the bathroom in the night. Unfortunately Charifa and her friend had the expectations of an expensive hotel for the cost of a tent on a yoga retreat in the countryside. Ultimately this made her stay difficult and here attitude rude and unfriendly.

    I hope she find what she wants in other places , but I suggest not a yoga retreat experience.

    I was staying at the Lotus Pad for three days and it was an amazing stay! Looking back I’d might have booked a longer period. Maybe next year. The Lotus Pad has a very good vibe, great location (in a more peaceful surrounding than the south of the island), good yoga, very nice breakfast and there are many options for your stay to see the island. Especially if you rent a car or a scooter. I have had the luck, too meet some likemind beautiful souls to share this experience with. It was like having five sisters. A perfect option for peace & harmony in body, mind and soul. On the road to the Lotus Pad there is a really nice lunchroom called Can Guimo. If you like vegan and smoothies, this is a good one!
