The programme allows for free time in the evenings to make use of the first-class facilities of the resort.


Enhance your stay at the Six Senses Spa by pampering yourself with extensive massages, beauty treatments and alternative therapies using natural and local ingredients. There is a supplement to use the spa facilities which include a hydrotherapy pool, cold plunge pool, heat and ice experience showers, herbal steam room, sauna, hammam and a relaxation lounge.



For breakfast and lunch, a range of healthy dishes are available to choose including fish and lean meat dishes. In the evenings, you will be free to explore any of the 9 restaurants on the resort, including a Michelin starred restaurant, organic and gluten-free cafes, as well as the seafront Sea Grill. Claire and James are also available to advise on healthier meal options.  


Good to know

38 Degrees North is an educational health and fitness retreat, rather than a bootcamp, aiming to teach you sustainable healthy habits. There is no strict regime, so dependent on your goals, you’ll still be allowed to treat yourself to a glass of wine or dessert in the evenings.



Puente Romano is located on a stunning beach side location in the centre of the famous 'Golden Mile'. Both the Old Town and Puerto Banus are just a short stroll away, making it ideally located to experience the local boutiques and restaurants and the glistening marina’s in southern Spain.



The retreat includes a stay in a Deluxe room which has a sitting area and terrace to relax. If you would prefer a more spacious room, there is the option to upgrade to a Suite with partial or full sea views.
