Opening Cal Reiet was an authentic dream come true for Petra and Henning Bensland. A breathtaking location was the starting point for bringing this ‘House of Friendship’ to life. They bought Cal Reiet in 2012 and transformed the mansion, dating back to 1881, into an elegant holistic retreat with 15 beautifully designed rooms and suites. Not any detail was left to chance, when Cal Reiet was opened in 2015 – an idyllic country hideaway with the authenticity of a home and a simple and informal spirit. Set in beautifully lush Mediterranean gardens, it is an oasis ripe with scents of the earth, sea and sun. A holistic wellbeing retreat and boutique lifestyle hotel, where you can practice mindfulness for body, mind and soul. Ideal for a timeout, even a short one!
At Cal Reiet they follow the guiding principle of ‘planting a seed’. They want their guests to be able to experience themselves in a totally different and new way, laying a foundation for positive growth and transformation. Once you’ve learned to take care of yourself, to meditate, to let your body and soul interact, the steps to follow are only natural. Everything at Cal Reiet has always been – and will always be – about you.
The yoga shala is a space for peace, quiet contemplation and meditation. Every morning: Yoga classes, both for beginners and advanced participants, not only for hotel guests but also for residents and second-home-owners. Relax, unwind and restore – or simply feel beautiful! The different retreats include yoga, meditation, mindfulness workshops, seminars and other holistic wellness related events. Most of their retreats are led by renowned international yoga teachers and holistic wellness experts. Classes are offered both on an individual basis and for groups.
Food is personal. It is an experience. It is a lifestyle. Nourishment is one of the fundamental parts of Cal Reiet’s values, not only for hotel guests. Everybody is welcome. They firmly believe that food should not only taste well and look beautiful. It should not only nourish your body, but also your soul. This is why they offer a creative, tasty and plant-based cuisine, aligning with the principle of “food as a medicine”. Only fresh, locally and organically sourced ingredients are being used, changing with the seasons and partly harvested from their own kitchen garden. Their cuisine is healthy, exciting and vibrant ─ full of natural Mediterranean flavors. By the way: Culinary workshops covering raw, vegan and vegetarian cooking classes are run in the open kitchen in the main house.
Cal Reiet a house of friendship. A place for like – minded travellers and locals alike to meet, connect and share experiences. And: you can take the Cal Reiet experience also home: the first plant-based cook book, available at the Reception of the Hotel. Enjoy!
