Spectacular natural beauty and perfect Feng-Shui combine to create a superb location where one can truly experience living in harmony with nature.
Nestling amongst the Andaluc�an Mountains, 815 metres above sea level, Punto de Luz is within walking distance from the traditional Spanish white hamlet of El Ca�uelo.
One of the many attractions of the centre is its breathtaking views. With mountains on three sides, the centre rests beside an open valley with a grand vista of both Lake Vi�uela and the Mediterranean Sea.

Punto de Luz was originally designed for yoga retreats and therefore lends itself beautifully to all activities that require a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere in a secluded location, as discovered by the television series "The Spa of Embarrassing Illnesses" who shot their first season here. Whatever your group, you will be most welcome and surely inspired at Punto de Luz!

Guest rooms are arranged around a central patio area separate from the core building, creating the perfect environment for absolute comfort and relaxation. Each guest enjoys en-suite accommodation and unlimited use of our fantastic salt water swimming pool.

Delicious nutritious vegetarian cuisine of the highest quality is on the menu. Meals are lovingly prepared using local seasonal produce and, with a Mediterranean flavour, recipes are a clever blend of modern and traditional fare.

The opportunity to indulge in one of several holistic therapies enhances the Punto de Luz experience. Massage, Reiki and healing complement the retreat activities perfectly. Personalised consultations with a nutritional therapist are also available.

The recent refurbishment of Centro Punto de Luz was inspired by a mixture of traditional Andaluc�an architecture and materials, and ancient Arabic patterns and decorations.
Centro Punto de Luz is a purpose built complex including a main building and three small houses designed, on different levels, around an open central patio with a traditional Moorish sunken fountain.

Rooms

All rooms are single with en-suite bathroom and terrace and all are equipped with a desk with a salt crystal lamp. The d�cor is rustic with a touch of ethnic.

Core building

The heart of the core building is the Lake room which has a stunning view over Lake Vi�uela and the Mediterranean Sea. The Lake room is used for meal times and also as an indoor area for yoga or any other group activities. In winter the room is heated with under-floor heating and a fire place. In a corner there is our juice bar that also serves the usual bar drinks and coffee.
Just outside the Lake room there is a large terrace where one can enjoy food outdoors or simply relax taking in the view.

Work areas

At the centre there are four main areas for our guests to use: the Lake room, the central open patio, the yoga platform and the newly extended area around the swimming pool.
The Lake room is a fantastic spacious area for all indoor work. The room is extremely bright and can be used as yoga studio, workshop area, conference room or simply to socialize. The terrace just outside the Lake room can also be used for group work.
The central patio is really the heart of the property and with its relaxing water feature in the middle and beautiful natural terracotta tiles it is the perfect location for calm meditation or evening yoga practice.
The platform, located at the top of the land, is a secluded open space with tiled flooring; it's view is different from that of the Lake room and is perfect for morning yoga sessions with its spectacular view of the mountains and the rising sun.
The newly extended 48 square metre wooden platform will add yet another area to practise yoga or simply relax beside the swimming pool. 

 

Swimming pool

Our salt water swimming pool is always a favourite with our guests during the long Spanish summer and it is open for all the guest to use.
With a maximum depth of 1.50 the pool measures 12 metres by 7 meters.
The swimming pool is also a fantastic place to watch the sun set!

Parking

For the guests who arrive at the centre by car, there is free 24 hour parking available just outside the property but the last 100 meters of road is a good-condition dirk track.


 

Food

The Meals

Centro Punto de Luz is a vegetarian centre. Our food is lovingly prepared using only fresh, seasonal and locally grown ingredients (where possible from within Andaluc�a).
We try to buy most of our vegetables directly form a neighbouring farmer in order to get the freshest produce and support our local economy. All food is prepared using olive oil that comes from Periana (4 Km from us) and no other fats so commonly used in restaurants. We try to limit the use of dairy products and wheat in our dishes and instead have these foods as separate options and we are very lucky to be supplied with Chloe's delicious organic eggs.

Breakfast and lunch/brunch at the centre is normally light and fresh always includes a raw dish and is accompanied by lots of fresh fruit while dinner is a more substantial affair and always has a pudding at the end!
Our menus are carefully devised offering not only a balance of nutrients but an eclectic mix of raw, vegan, traditional Italian and Spanish cuisine.

In the kitchen are Richard and Marilud. Richard has attended a number of raw/living food courses, and together with Betty's nutritional qualifications our aim is to re energise and revitalise you. 

During the day

At specific times the bar serves freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices and fresh coffee while tea, instant coffee, herbal infusions and snacks are available 24 hours a day for the guests to enjoy.
An honesty bar for alcoholic and soft drinks is also open 24 hours a day.
