So we completed our ReConnect retreat at Can Amonita on the 7 July. Mission accomplished, everyone went home happy, transformed and reconnected at a much deeper level to themselves, to each other and to life! It was a powerful and transformative week.
We were only 7 in the end so we were a bit lost in the big house!! Almost enough to cover the costs!
It all went very well. Any little questions or issues we had were dealt with fully and quickly by Miyong. We enjoyed the yoga deck and the pool very much.
Thank you for making your beautiful house available to me.

Just back form a lovely stay in Ibiza.
Once again I had a fantastic retreat at Can Amonita. It was a big succes. The students loved every bit of it, the house, their rooms, the food, the swimming pool, me and the yoga. Everybody left and wanted to stay longer.
It was also so nice to work with Wendy, everybody loved her and her delicious food. The atmosphere in the house was really lovely, lots of laughter and joy. All worked out really great again.The reviews I got are just amazing. so really great.
We had a week at Ca Amonita over Easter with a group of friends, and our children, one of whom uses a wheelchair. The beautiful house was absolutely perfect for our group and the access to the house and garden worked perfectly, with 2 discreet ramps added to allow access to the terrace and the main seating area. The downstairs bedroom with the generous en suite bathroom also worked very well for our disabled daughter, with plenty of space for wheelchair in both bedroom and bathroom. We had a wonderful relaxing stay, made full use of the garden and even the pool (pretty cold at Easter). Lizzie could not have been more helpful in terms of information and making sure that everything would work in terms of accessibility. We would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful time and our guest all utterly enjoyed themselves. Your house was a wonderful venue and we felt so comfortable and at home immediately. The yoga platform is so gorgeous with the sails up and was the perfect size for 13 of us. The frogs and sounds of nature were such a perfect backdrop! And the composting toilet turned out to be a surprise hit for many of our guests. I finally had to go down and use it on the last morning to see what all of the fuss was about. And now I get it! WOW!
Wonderful Can Amonita September 21st-25th 2014
Lizzy and Dominic are gracious and warm hosts. From the minute you step through their beautifully arched front doorway you can tell a lot of thought and love has gone into making guests feel relaxed and cared-for. From the design and decoration of their home, the wild rosemary tea on tap and the delish (yet healthy) food to the Buddhas landscaped in the garden and the tiny frogs in the fish pond, it’s the perfect spot to retreat. Ooh and the nicest pool I’ve swam in for years. Photos don’t do it justice. Simone

We had a great time at Can Amonita.
The Finca and the surroundings is just perfect for a retreat and everything was there what we needed. Big thank you!
My students already mentioned that they wanna come back.
I just wanted to write a quick email to say how wonderful our stay at Can Amonita was.
Can Amonita is very special and from arrival we felt immediately at home. We all hugely enjoyed our 2 weeks and very reluctantly returned home on Friday feeling the most relaxed and rejuvenated I can remember after any holiday.
There was unanimous agreement that we would love to return to Can Amonita next year please!
I've just got back from Ibiza after having stayed at your wonderful home. I just wanted to say what a fantastic holiday we all had and that it was an absolute pleasure to be able to stay in such a special place. It's a fantastic space in perfect surroundings and all the hard work you clearly put into it is obvious. Thanks for sharing it!
I was very sad to leave today but have every intention of returning!
Hope you're enjoying the sunny weather in the UK (for a change).
B+B and Mindfulness retreat May 29- June 4 2013 Dear Lizzy and Dominic,
We had the best time staying at Can Amonita, the place is just beautiful, so quit, a hidden gem.
Lizzy prepares a healthy and very good breakfast and Dominic makes great lunches, we ate it all!
Love your dogs, Sutton and Lorenzo, felt very safe at all times, even when I was all alone.
The rooms are spacious and clean, cool in the summer and there a enough places on the property to sit in the sun or read in the shade. The pool is a cool place to hang out and with a car there are nice beaches nearby.
I would definitely recommend it!
We loved the villa! There were lots of different areas for people to chill (both inside and out)! The decor and contents are high quality and yet still homely. The location is great as it’s easy to get to anywhere in Ibiza. Lots of cooking utensils, plates, cutlery etc. made it easy when we did want to eat in! Having the dish-washer and washing machine were great. The gardens and outdoor furniture were gorgeous – especially the gazebo. The pool was wonderful and you could actually swim properly in it. We were very sad to leave!
Our stay at "Can Amonita" Villa far surpassed my expectations. It was fully stocked with all supplies, no need for anything, we even became addicted the game "Mancala" which was at the villa - I recommend you give it a go. The property and views are outstanding and the pool is stunning. This place is peaceful and secluded and surrounded by rural properties and orange trees. Although the property looks far from the main road we did walk down to what was "the Monkey Bar" (approximately 1 mile) and had great Tapas there.
Aura Restaurant and Club is also nearby. Charity& Elliott our housekeeper and driver also provided an excellent service and I have found Lizzy a pleasure to deal with... Easy no hassle.
Absolutely amazing spot...you will never regret having chosen it! We would definitely return.
"The villa was absolutely sensational, we wanted for nothing!! David & Julie were fab. Everyone is really keen to book in again for another trip next year already but I'm giving them some breathing space for a bit I think. We'll want to come earlier in the year I should think, end June/early July.
If there were two things I HAD to think of to improve, one would be some extra evening lighting out on the big table by the pool for evening dinners, it was hard to see what we were eating!! The other thing is of course the bbq which you know all about. The stereo was brilliant and perfect for all round the villa. That's not too bad is it! We adored it and I'd really love to watch how the villa matures with the fruit trees etc.
Thanks again for the extra day, it made a world of difference.
Hope to keep in touch & huge thanks again for a wonderful stay"
"Dear Lizzy & Dom, I just wanted to write and say what a wonderful time we had at Villa Amonita. The villa is stunning and set in a beautiful location. Everyone had such a wonderful time and we will definately consider renting the villa again in years to come. Thank you both so much for the wonderful week."
"A lovely 2 week holiday - thank you so much for a great time. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in your lovely villa. It really is a lovely spot, a great design which you've clearly put alot of time and effort into, and it worked very well for us."
"As one of your first clients we truly loved your Villa. With a group with adults and children of all ages everybody enjoyed themselves for almost 4 weeks. The location is beautiful and quiet, we sure will be back!"

Mindfulness Course at Can Amonita" with Cindy Ritmeester, hosted by Dominic + Lizzy
A welcome escape…
‘Mindfulness retreats’ carry with them the recognition that in increasingly fast moving times, people desperately strive for an escape back to basics. Just breathing, observing, being; celebrating what exists within us, and all about us, in every day life. As a stepping stone to meditation and other deeper spiritual practices, mindfulness retreats have found a welcome place amongst stressed office workers, senior executives and individuals simply seeking to revert to a more mindful focus on their fundamental mental and emotional health.
Imagine my delight when I was invited to partake in the first of four days of a residential mindfulness retreat here in Ibiza. On arrival, entrusting myself into the watchful and competent care of veteran course leader, Cindy Rittmeister, and being ensconced in the spectacularly conducive surrounds of Can Amonita, both went a long way to instantly calming my mind and lifting my spirits. The ensuing morning’s programme of breathing exercises and gentle movements designed to enhance our senses and enliven our spirits, coupled with consciously absorbing the stunning scenery about us, soon had us well on our way to total inner peace and a renewed sense of gratitude for, well, everything… All this, culminating with a customarily delicious and wholesome lunch served by Can Amonita’s consummate hosts. To think that this was only the beginning… The full-time enlisted guests must have positively floated away at the end of four mornings of the same! If you’re looking for a bit of well deserved you time, reconnecting with and drawing soul nourishment from the simpler things in life, you need look no further.

We loved everything about our stay at can amonita, a beautiful house in a fantastic setting, by far the nicest b&b we've stayed in for a long while. Our room was very large and comfortable, breakfast was delicious, the pool was great and Lizzy and Dominic couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful! They were full of good advice about where to eat and the best beaches. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back!

Review for Mindfulness Course with Cindy Ritmeester + B+B at can Amonita
11th - 16th October 2012
I've spent an amazing mindfulness retreat in Ibiza at Can Amonita. The mindfulness course, given by Cindy Ritmeester from Natural Soul, and the heart-warming and cosy ambiance created by Lizzy and Dominic, the hosts of Can Amonita, have made this an unforgettable holiday for me. I felt at home from the minute I walked in to this wonderful villa, situated in an oasis of peace in the green heart of this beautiful island. With its spectacular garden and pool and all the nice and quiet places to relax and enjoy in and outside the villa, I found all the peace I was hoping to get from this retreat. As Can Amonita is well-situated to visit the rest of the island, I had the opportunity to discover some stunning beaches and scenery.
Dear Lizzy and Dominic, thank you so much for sharing this great place and the great talks we had. It was very special for me. I hope you will continue the mindfulness with Cindy, whom I'd like to thank as well for sharing the philosophy and exercises of mindfulness with me. I'm looking forward to my next stay at your home !
I enjoyed my stay at Can Amonita during a Mindfulness retreat. Lizzy and Dominic made me want to come back, 'cause the villa is a beautiful and a peaceful place (even with Sutton's presence :-), the food was delicious even if I'm not a vegetarian ! There's a lot of space in and around the villa and the rooms. Everything is nicely decorated. Lizzy and Dominic really take respectfully care of you as hosts. I'd love to come back, maybe for a next Mindfulness session with Cindy Ritmeester :-)
I still have warm memory's about my trip in october! The food was yummy, healthy and tasty ; The atmosphere and the surroundings gave me a lot of inspiration. It's a wonderfull place to stay! Rooms are very comfortable and clean! The furniture from Bali are beautifull
