Molino del Rey – Spain’s Best Yoga Retreat

“Molino del Rey” quite simply has to be the best yoga retreat in Spain.

“News flash for teachers: Due to sudden cancellations, two superb weeks now open for this year!!!!

May 11-18th & August 24-31st .    Please see our COURSES page”

Our family-run private yoga retreat, is built from two ancient water mill ruins, and set in the beautiful nature reserve of Andalucia in Southern Spain.  It has everything you would expect from a top yoga retreat and much more. Our yoga retreat facilities are second to none in Spain, and in fact the top yoga experts regularly rate Molino del Rey as one of the best yoga retreats in the world. With comfort in mind, we have purposely built the entire place with our own hands, improving along the way since as early as 1994.

***Please note that we hire the centre to the teachers on a private basis. We are not classed nor run as a hotel! ***

Molino Del Rey

Molino del Rey is much more than just a yoga retreat though. In addition to offering a wide range of yoga and other courses, our retreat is very well known for its massages treatments, very popular for hiking and hill walking, and is an idyllic setting for an inspirational painting holiday.

Our yoga retreat is in a typical little Spanish hamlet, surrounded by the traditional and simple Spanish country way of life. There are around 30 houses in the hamlet, some 50 Spanish neighbours & a bar, but no shops, banks etc. We are in a gorgeous green valley, flanked by orange groves, in the famous nature reserve “Sierra de las Nieves”. Only 50 minutes from Malaga airport & popular tourist resorts of the Costa del Sol i.e Marbella & Puerto Banus etc.. Just 38 km on our road to the magical city of Ronda, a very popular excursion for our guests!

A spring of the river “Rio Grande” is born at the entrance of our hamlet. From it the purest of waters pour through our yoga centre, offering bathing facilities whilst surrounded by the wonderful fragrance of mountain flowers.
