As part of our Insider Interview series we regularly sit down with one of the team at one of the many retreats we have the privilege of working with and sending clients to. Today we speak to Cristina Rosa, Director of Sales at EPIC SANA Algarve in Albufeira, Portugal.
EPIC SANA Algarve is not just a place to stay. It is a place to experienced. Owned by SANA Hotels, it has become one of the top luxury resorts in Portugal since it's opening in 2013. Superbly located on the Falésia Beach in peaceful surroundings - it offers the perfect fusion of a luxurious beach holiday and a trendy wellness retreat carefully tailored to each individual's goals. Pick a designated retreat that suits your needs whether it's a de-stress or fitness programme or built to be completely bespoke to your needs and desires.
We aim to offer unique and innovative experiences in hospitality from cool and chic accommodation to bespoke wellness retreats in order to create positive and lasting memories for all our guests.
Our seamless personalised services paired with our unique cuisine using the freshest products from the Algarve help to set us apart from other wellness resorts. We also enjoy a unique location within a lush pine forest next to Falésia Beach. All our programmes run all year without fixed dates in order to be even more tailor-made. Further to this, our staff are devoted to our guests. Their friendliness and warmth makes our valued guests feel cared for and looked after. We understand that the human touch is very important, especially for wellness travellers who often travel alone.
Our most popular programmes are the Sayanna Yoga Retreat and Sayanna Reshape which has two goals in one - weight loss and improving your overall physical condition.
Our Wellness Assistants are always available to assist and advise our guests. Through various assessments and evaluations, we can determine each guest's needs and goals.
The team is multidisciplinary and led by top health experts including consulting fitness instructors, spa therapists, nutritionists and alternative health practitioners.
Our guests tend to range between 35 and 55 years of age and people who live fast-paced lives. We welcome all manner of guests from solo travellers to couples to families. Many of our guests are fitness addicts who like to keep in shape during their holidays but there are also people who come to lose weight and experience our yoga classes and workshops.
The short term benefits of a stay include improved mood, increased vitality and a balanced body and mind. In the long term, clients can expect to implement positive lifestyle changes and increase their longevity.
The Algarve is a year round destination and all of our Sayanna Retreats are available all year-round too.
Most guests stay with us for 7 nights but we also offer shorter programmes of 3 and 5 nights.
Make sure you prepare your body! Aim for an early start of what is ahead of you by having your final evening meal at home before 7pm, ensuring that it is low in carbs. This allows your digestive system time to work before bedtime, resulting in a better quality of sleep. You will awake feeling fresh and filled with energy to begin your healthy retreat programme at the resort.
I consider myself and experienced Sales Director who loves to share with the whole team my passion for the hospitality industry. I like to spend my free time travelling either abroad or locally and as sports enthusiastic my favourite daily activities are running or biking in Ria Formosa Natural Park while enjoying a magnificient sunrise. It is THE moment to reconnect and recharge energy specially after stressful periods.
Being at EPIC SANA Algarve´s team since day one I´m very proud to provide my vision and expertise not only with my colleagues but also with our estimated guest. It is such a privilege to witness all the achievement’s specially the recognition of our Resort as one of the trendiest properties in Portugal.
