Escape for a long weekend to San Sebastian, in the beautiful Basque county of Spain and treat yourself to a 4 day weekend getaway. Stay at our relaxed Donosti Chill retreat house and enjoy daily yoga, healthy breakfasts, massages, cultural tours and more…

Guest Review:
“The Malakai Yoga & Wellness Retreat in San Sebastian with Nathalie was great! A really relaxed wellness weekend, perfect to get a way from work and everyday life. From the first moment I felt comfortable in beautiful Donosti Chill House as Nathalie welcomed me warmly. The group was small and it was personally. Nathalie teaches my favourite yoga stiles Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga so it was a great wake up and start into the day. I loved the healthy breakfast they were preparing every morning with a lot of love and good ideas. The dinner with the group and the Pintxo tour was fantastic. We could feel the local culture and we had a great time. Thank you Nathalie and all the best to you, big hug” Sandra, Switzerland.
