Accommodation

If you are looking for shared accommodation to reduce costs, we suggest booking an airbnb in the Benahavis village so you are within walking distance to the retreat venue. This can be arranged with other participants via your whatsapp group which you will be added into once your application has been approved.

If you are looking for a private or twin room, there is one hotel in the village called Amanahavis.

If you choose to stay outside of the village, it is suggested to rent a car to drive to and from the venue every day.

*During the summer months we are able to offer shared accommodation on site – please email us for more information on this option.

Food

The Benahavis Village, although small, has an abundance of affordable restaurants and cafes offering various cuisines – from traditional Spanish tapas, Italian, Indian, Thai, Lebanese, and the most recent addition of a health food cafe serving up oat lattes and brunch. Whatever your dietary preference, you will have no issue finding options to suit you.

Travel Info

Please book flights arriving at Malaga Airport.

Arrival

If you are arriving into Malaga Airport there will be a transfer car arranged to collect the group between 14.30 – 15.00 dropping off in the Benahavis Village.

If you wish to be included in this transfer then your flight must be scheduled to land no later than 14.30. Please provide us with your landing time, airline and flight number so we can include you in the transfer booking.

The cost of this airport transfer is split between the group.

If you are landing outside of the transfer time, we can help you to arrange a taxi at your own cost, at the best price available.

Departures

The retreat officially comes to a close at 11.00am on your scheduled last day. We suggest booking an afternoon or evening flight if possible so that you have the day to integrate your experience.

Just provide us with your flight departure time prior to the retreat, and we will assist in arranging your taxi shares. The cost of departure transfers is not covered by Medicine Space.
