Wildfitness, Menorca

Move, live & eat wildly on a ruggedly beautiful coast

Six day ‘Fundamentals’ or 13 day ‘Transformative’ retreats on set dates in April/early-May and late-September/October each year, avoiding peak summer tourist season. Bespoke group retreats for friends or colleagues are also available.

A six day retreat costs from £1,670 per person in a shared room and £1,850 per person in a single occupancy room; includes accommodation at Binigaus Nou boutique villa; airport pick-up and transportation; all movement coaching plus individual posture and mobility assessment; all meals; full body massage or alternative treatment.


Best for: Those wanting to increase their fitness and range of movement in a natural environment, far from the confines of a gym.

Not for: Those seeking a spa break. You may pick up the odd scrape or bruise and that holiday manicure may not last.

In a nutshell:

Based at an elegant 18th century villa and a rustic converted barn in 300 acres of glorious grounds inside a beautiful UNESCO protected reserve on Menorca, this fitness retreat enables you to re-wild both mind and body. Rediscover how nature intended you to move, live and eat. Enhance your fitness through purposeful, playful movement. Reenergise through meditation and massage, and experiment with your energy levels on a plant-based, paleo-style regime. A potentially life transforming experience.

What’s Queenly?

The fun and empowerment that comes from moving efficiently in nature in a beautiful UNESCO protected reserve. The glorious 300-acre grounds of Binigaus Nou.

What’s Lowly?

If you don’t much like being outdoors, this is not for you. Menorca usually has over 300 days of sunshine per year, but do pack layers for changeable weather conditions.

Retreat Activities

Expect an average of three daily movement sessions punctuated by ‘real food’ meals and relaxation time for treatments and chilling. The retreat includes at least two off-site excursions and there are opportunities for additional off-site activities during a free afternoon.

Most days start with pre-breakfast ‘structural hygiene’ to mobilise joints and muscles, before progressing to fundamentals including running, climbing, lifting, throwing, hanging, and signature Wildfitness animal crawls, before finishing with pre-dinner deep stretching and breathing exercises.

You will be able to immerse yourself in nature, and while a digital detox is not enforced, it is encouraged. There is plenty of time for meditation, napping, journaling or perfecting your animal crawl in the woods, and horse-riding can be booked as an extra on your free afternoon.

A 15 minute walk (or 5 minute trot) down a private track leads to the beautiful Binigaus Beach, accessible to the public only by foot from nearby Santo Tomas. Additional activities for your free afternoon that can be booked include kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding (SUP). The retreat includes one half day at the impressively regenerated limestone quarry and gardens of Lithica ‘Pedreres de S’Hostal’.

Relaxation time includes one full-body massage or alternative treatment. You can book extra treatments with excellent massage therapist Vicki Hutchinson, including reiki and seichem, cupping therapy, reflexology and acupressure.

Personal spaces

Bedrooms: Binigaus Nou villa dates back to 1798 and has an elegant décor with antique influences, while its converted barn has a more rustic feel. The eight bedrooms can be booked as single, double or (in three cases) twin rooms. Six are in the main villa and two (a double and twin) in the adjacent converted barn.

Top of the range is the King’s Suite with a sun terrace, sea views and much sought-after bath. The Queen’s Suite has two sun terraces, sea views and shares a bathroom. The South Suite (a double) also enjoys sea views. The most economical option for single travellers is to opt to share a twin room.

All bathrooms are ensuite apart from the bathroom shared between the Queens Suite and adjacent twin room. All have good showers or (in the Kings Suite) a bath. Handmade organic hair-and-body shampoo is provided.

Personal spaces

Other spaces to be alone: The 300-acre grounds of Binigaus Nou provide many opportunities for glorious isolation, as does the nearby Binigaus Beach. An agricultural circle, formerly used for horse-drawn grain milling, offers a tranquil space for meditation.

Insider Tips

Embark on your Wildfitness journey with an open mind and spirit of adventure and you will relish the experience. Remember that extra massage treatments book up early. Save that mani-pedi for post-Wildfitness for it will only last until your first tree climb.

When to Go

Average April temperature is between 18-20°C; the sun is intense during the middle of the day, while nights can be chilly (around 8°C) and the sea (16°C) for the hardier swimmer. Pack for all eventualities in April: layers, waterproof jacket and sun cream. October is warmer, with average daytime temperatures around 22-24°C, mild nights (16-18°C), and a comfortable sea temperature for swimming (23°C).

Shared places

Shared Places: The 12m infinity swimming pool and its terrace enjoy sweeping views over forests to the Mediterranean beyond. Poolside terrace loungers and shaded hammocks provide chill-out space and the villa’s library and sitting room are ideal for socialising or quiet time.


The Wildfitness ‘wild eating’ principles are basic: eat ‘real food’ that is locally sourced and predominantly plant-based. Meals are freshly prepared in-house and eaten communally and outside whenever possible.

Expect abundant seasonal vegetables and salads, local fish and meat, organic yogurt and cheeses. Breakfast might include frittata with spinach, organic yogurt and fig jam; lunch could be barbequed meats and roasted vegetable dishes; supper might feature hearty chickpea or meatball soup and baked snapper or chicken with flavoursome salads.

We are a married couple from London in our mid 30s who are active gym goers. We signed up to WildFitness to be whisked far away to a place that would encourage us to reconnect with ourselves and our bodies. We were hoping for a sporty and outdoorsy week in beautiful surroundings with great people and delicious food… well boy did we get that and then some!

For starters, the trainers are top notch. We were particularly struck by their technical knowledge and the outstanding level of effort and individual attention that they put into every session. They are always on hand with welcome hints and tips to help you nail the right posture and movements. The team elegantly balances the rhythm of the day to allow for afternoon rest and relaxation too, after a full programme of activities from early morning to early afternoon. At the end of each day we felt a great sense of achievement from moving our bodies without being totally exhausted.

The natural location in Menorca is fabulous; incredible views in every direction, beach access via a 20 min gentle walk down a private road from the villa, not to mention being walking distance from a majestic cave. You feel remote being surrounded by only forest and sea as far as you can see, yet the local town is only a 30 min walk away. And the villa certainly lives up to the photos, with a stunning infinity pool and beautifully appointed with Danish interiors.

One of our favourite surprises was just how playful the week was. A lot of thought goes into the variety of the sessions and where they take place to make them as fun and engaging as possible. Most of the time we didn’t even focus on the effort we were putting in because we were too busy enjoying ourselves.

We came home feeling rejuvenated, healthier and full of new tips and habits to look after our bodies. After being won over by our week at WildFitness, it made total sense to learn that more than half of WildFitness clients are return visitors. Forget ‘feel-good’; this is a ‘feel-better’ experience not to be missed!

I’m in my late forties and after starting a diet and exercise programme at Christmas, I wanted something to keep me on track during the year.

I’d not done anything similar before but love nature and being outside, so I decided that Wildfitness was for me.

In short, the week in Menorca was fantastic and potentially life changing.

The location was perfect – wild and remote, the coaches were amazing and challenged everyone regardless of ability, and the food was perfect – both healthy and varied.

Each day was different and fun with a variety of activities, educational sessions and nutritional advice.

I can’t recommend Wildfitness enough, and I hope to return next year.

And Menorca is such a beautiful island and very different to what I was expecting. If you can, take a few days before or after the retreat to explore.
