Relax and Revitalisation



As a cognitive behavioral therapist (read About » Meet Bobby for more details) with credentials in family therapy, Bobby Longman is able to provide therapy for a range of specific problems – depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, family–based problems, couples counselling, child behavioral difficulties, and parenting skills, as well as facilitating personal self-development for those wanting a personal but structured retreat.

We can also arrange for local alternative therapists to come to the Yurt Centre and provide a range of therapies on site. Therapies currently offered are reflexology, aromatherapy, massage, Indian head massage and Reiki, but please ask if there is a therapy not listed that you would like to try.

Natural Spa Packages

  • Seasonal juice detox with seasonal fruit from the farm.
  • Nacimiento plunge: the ultimate natural plunge pool experience.
  • Facials and Detoxes using Forever Living Organic Aloe Vera products, which are also available to buy.

Prices for packages will be determined by the number in the group and choice of therapies – just get in touch to discuss what you would like.

Llave de Granada Spa

In the town of Alcalá la Real, only 20 minutes drive from the Yurt Centre, you can find the lovely little spa called “Llave de Granada”.

The spa consists of a hydrotherapy pool, contrast pools, jacuzzi, Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, various showers, and foot massage. You can also have a massage in their treatment room.

Prices start from € 15 for a basic circuit.

Hammams Nearby

There are beautiful حَمّام تُرْكيّ—hammams—in both Granada and Córdoba that offer magical spa experiences. With a range of rooms and pools surrounded by gorgeous Arabic tiling and decoration, this is a fantastic treat as part of a day out in either city.

Start with relaxing in the ”warm room“ which is heated by a continuous flow of hot, dry air, encouraging you to perspire (a real pore clean-out). You may then move to an even hotter room – the “hot room” – before you wash in cold water. After a full body wash and receiving a massage, you finally retire to the “cooling-room” for another period of relaxation.

Prices start from € 21, and we will be happy to arrange advance bookings for you.
