Embark on a unique journey to destress and revive your spirit in the wild Azores. Designed to release stress with focused spa treatments and outdoor activities, this tailormade retreat can be further customized based on your needs.
Stay in an eco beach resort surrounded by pristine nature and take in the natural beauty of São Miguel Island.
Start your day with outdoor yoga listening to the Atlantic Ocean or indulge in destressing spa treatments in a hut on a cliff for a truly unique experience.
Take in the healing of a private forest bathing session to reset your mind and dissipate anxiety. As we discussed here, forest bathing has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and promote wellbeing and mental health, and we stand by its positive effects.
You will then adventure on private excursions taking you to some of the most stunning locations. Explore the 7 Cidades on the west side of São Miguel Island. It’s one of the most beautiful natural settings in the Azores, made up of two lakes in the centre of a volcanic crater. Looking from the edge of the crater, one lake looks blue (reflecting the sky) and is called Lagoa Azul and the other appears green (reflecting the vegetation around it) and is named Lagoa Verde. Marvel at the breathtaking scenery and walk along the shores of the green and blue lakes. You will then visit the “Lagoa do Fogo” (Fire Lake) – one of the lakes on the island where you will encounter nature in its pure state.
You will also discover Nordeste, the best-kept secret of the island. This part of the island is known for its beautiful gardens, which are worth visiting and the view from them is breathtaking! With native and exotic vegetation and forest-clad mountains, the eastern part of the island is the most beautiful. Stop at Ribeira dos Caldeirões Park to visit a beautiful waterfall surrounded by old watermills, luxuriant vegetation and panoramic views. Continue to the most beautiful part of Nordeste with an impressive view of magnificent valleys.
Then, leave the land for the ocean, and enjoy a sunset cruise along the south coast with great views of rock and lava formations. You will watch the sun set behind the Atlantic Ocean horizon while drinking wine and tasting Azorean cheese. Now, that’s how life should be like!
