Getting here from Fuerteventura airport

Fuerteventura airport is 35 minutes from Lotus Retreat. We recommend that you allow us to organise a transfer for you. This will ensure that you have no waiting around at the airport and that your driver knows exactly where you are going, allowing you to get to us and settle in as smoothly and stress free as possible.

The cost is as follows:

  • 1 Guest – 40 euros
  • 2 Guests – 20 euros per person
  • 3 Guests or more – 15 euros per person

We always try to arrange shared transfers for guests arriving at similar times to keep your costs down. Coming by public transport is not recommended as you will need to take two buses and a taxi to get to us (bus number 3 to Puerto del Rosario, changing to the number 6 to Corralejo then a five minute taxi ride to the center).

If you are hiring a car, please find directions to us here: DRIVING INSTRUCTIONS TO LOTUS RETREAT CORRALEJO.

I am a solo traveller, is this ok?

The majority of our guests travel to us on their own to take a much needed break away from the pace of day-to-day life. You will meet other like-minded people who are with us for a healthy, relaxing break. Guests often arrange to eat out together in the evenings when we don’t offer meals. During free time some guests like to spend time exploring the island together, other guests are happy to enjoy the beautiful beaches and down time on their own – whatever your needs are, Azulfit offers a fun and safe environment for solo travellers of all ages.

I have never done yoga before, is this ok?

beach meditationWe offer classes for levels from beginner to advanced, so please do join us if you would like to try yoga for the first time. Group sizes are kept small so the the instructor can give each student plenty of one-to-one attention and ensure that they are being challenged safely at their level.

How many people do you typically have for a week?

Group size varies from four to twelve people. We like to keep group sizes small as this allows individuals to have more attention and be better equipped to accomplish their goals.

Can you accommodate special dietary requirements?

Azulfit can accommodate special dietary requirements, including gluten free, dairy free, and vegan/ vegetarian diets. We are a bustling, love filled retreat kitchen so cannot accommodate all allergies or preferences but we will work with you to the best of our ability. Please indicate allergies on the booking form and we can correspond with you directly about them. Please read our allergen policy for further details.

I have an illness or injury, will I be able to take part in your classes?

Please see information on special conditions here. In all of our classes you are encouraged to go at your own pace and to listen to your body. We try, where possible to take note of any injuries or illnesses you have and offer you suitable modifications and adjustments. In cases or serious injury, illness, or pregnancy we ask that you book our wellbeing class package, offering you private tuition, at your own pace, for your wellbeing. If you have any serious doubts about attending the retreat, you should seek advice from your doctor.
