ALGARVE RETREAT FAQS

Do people come alone?

Over half of our guests are solo travellers. Joining a fitness retreat is a safe bet for solo travellers because you're guaranteed to meet people with similar interests.

Are flights & transfers included?

No, you will need to make your own travel arrangements. We recommend skyscanner.com to find the best deals. Hiring a car is by far the most cost-effective way to get around the island. Before the trip, we'll be setting up a team Whatsapp group so that you can chat. Guests usually club together on transfers or car hire after chatting in the Whatsapp group.

Do I need to be super fit to take part?

Not at all! Everybody's fitness levels are different. If you want to train hard, sure, we can help you with that. If you want to take it easier, you can do that too. Remember, all of our activities are optional. This is your holiday. Take it at your own pace and enjoy yourself!

Are meals included, and what about drinks? 

This retreat is half board, so you'll get breakfast each morning, and then either lunch or dinner. When it comes to dining, You'll love our delicious, locally sourced ingredients and responsibly harvested fish and seafood at our exquisite restaurants. We cater for all dietary needs or preferences, so you can relax knowing that we've got you in mind.

What's the accommodation like, and do I have to share?

Cascade is situated in the most beautiful spot. Its clifftop location, contemporary decor and unrivalled facilities make this resort one of the most luxurious on the Algarve. The lush gardens seem to go on forever, and we will use them each day to exercise in. Cascade has three swimming pools and a wellness spa offering holistic treatments and signature therapies. You can choose to have your own room, or share with a fellow retreater.
