Kalindi Guest Review

The following reviews are excerpts from:


I loved waking up to Yoga followed by a yummy breakfast! I also had an amazing massage probably the best I have ever had. I enjoyed the guided hiking at the Timanfaya National Park and I particularly enjoyed the meditation sitting in the crater. It felt so surreal. We also visited the wineries and enjoyed a glass or two and it was such an enjoyable day. I enjoyed lying in the hammock under the tree and just dozing and thinking this is the life! Most of all I enjoyed the positive energy from Elvira and her staff at Kallindi.

The place is so relaxing, the yoga classes are really great, it’s a great base to visit the whole island and most of all Elvira is so welcoming you’ll feel like you’re family!

The property is situated in a rural village in a peaceful location, surrounded by the beautifully unique Lanzarote landscape. The sunrise is particularly stunning here. Staying at the Kalindi is more than a holiday. It is a chance to experience a genuinely welcoming and easy atmosphere that promotes a holistic healthy lifestyle with yoga instructors (explored 3 types of yoga) that were all excellent and inclusive of different levels and abilities. Then after morning practice eating a healthy delicious breakfast outside. The company at breakfast includes staff, couples and singles alike staying from all over the world. Conversations are inclusive and interesting and is an excellent start to the day to as you wish. There are also further optional yoga classes, hiking and relaxing therapies offered. Myself and my husband love it so much here we returned and will continue to do so in the future. A big thank you to Elvira and her team at Kalindi!

Kalindi is a magic place right in the centre of the island with views over to the seaside and accross the countryside. Staying there is relaxing, with yoga classes every morning and extremely pleasant staff. By car you can get anywhere on Lanzarote very quickly.

We had such a wonderful relaxing time at Kalindi and we cannot wait to return! The building and garden are beautiful, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and its location in the very centre of the island far away from the tourist centres of the south combine to make it an ideal place to escape the stress of modern life. If you rent a car Kalindi is in a perfect location – being at the centre of this incredible island means you are never far from anything! The highlight for us however was meeting the wonderful staff and volunteers. They provide a big hearted welcome, plenty of time for chats and laughter, and make many efforts to attend to all needs of the guests and provide support in case there is a problem. The delicious and healthy breakfast is adapted to your preference. We enjoyed the morning yoga classes very much and appreciated that the instructor adapted the class to us as complete beginners. After this introduction, we plan to try continue yoga in our lives back home. We left a piece of our heart in Kalindi and the island of Lanzarote!

The accommodation is different so can not be compared to anything else on the island! It is remote, it has spectacular views and it is run by earth conscience people. The yoga is well led and the breakfast designed to suit individual needs. Great company in the staff and other visitors.

A beautiful week away…I’m back in London after an amazing week of yoga, meditation, Kalindi is such a wonderfully tranquil spot to land in…a place full of people with beautiful souls…they couldn’t have been more helpful in coming up with solutions and ideas for us to see the best of the island…and also make adjustments where necessary. Feeling so grateful for this incredible week away! I have come home with such precious memories …watching the beautiful stars, lying on volcanic lava…amazing hiking and pausing for some meditating inside a crater, beautiful breakfasts in the garden and interesting conversations over some fresh fish…to mention just a few! If you’re thinking about going…just do it! You won’t regret it at all!

I had an amazing one week at Kalindi with the very friendly and welcoming people who work there. The detox program was very well organised, the activities (yoga & surf) were fun, and I received great tips on exploring the island. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to devote some time to recharge in a healthy and friendly environment! Thank you guys, you do a great job!

Irina – Spain – Bookyogaretreats.com – September 2017

People working at kalindi are awesome. Having an amazing breakfast all together, chatting with people coming from several countries has been great. Yoga in the morning, sooo nice! The place is comfy, cozy, clean and has a lovely vibe.

Laura – Italy – Booking.com – November 2017

Loving and openhearted people, Good advice for touring the island out of tourist areas. Very nice kitchen and peacefull surroundings – spots with sun and shadow and shelter from the wind. Splendid yoga

Hannah – Booking.com 

Peace and tranquility in the small village of Tao in the centre of Lanzarote. A welcome alternative to the other busy, touristy areas on the island. Couldn’t have asked for nicer hosts who went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect.

Yoga in the mornings was adapted to the audience which made it very accessible for any beginners. Breakfast was traditional and tasty. Facilities for self catering were great. Beautiful landscaped garden to relax in. Very reasonable price!

Traditional Canarian guesthouse on the edge of Tao, a stunning rural location in the centre of Lanzarote! My hosts Nohemi & Roy made me feel so very welcome and I really felt as if I was staying with my favourite aunt and uncle.

I felt under no obligation to try any of the activities that are on offer at Kalindi, yet I found myself attending an 8am yoga class (no longer am I a yoga virgin)?! During my 5 night stay I was provided with an insight into the traditional Canarian way of life and returned home feeling a deep connection with the island of Lanzarote. Amazing!!

I spent a week at Kalindi in May 2017.  The staff and fellow guests were wonderful.  I especially loved the morning yoga class that was available.  This place is beautiful with a unique atmosphere, and away from the touristy areas (though not far to drive, for those interested in spending time at these areas).

The location is central on the Island, so quite convenient for those who want to explore the Island, but a rental car is definitely recommended.

Reve – Booking.com

It was awesome! Nice and quiet place to stay, with lovely hosts. Very clean and comfortable rooms. I will come back! Thanks to Roy and Nohemi, and of course Kali the Cat . 😉

Natalie – AIRBNB

Very beautiful and peaceful Guesthouse in the middle of Lanzarote. Good to relax. Distances to all the nice Locations of Lanzarote within 15-20 minutes. Very nice hosts, we would visit again =)

Marvin – AIRBNB

We enjoyed our stay at Kalindi. The house, the village and the surrounding were picturesque. The hosts were great and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The location of the village is very central in Lanzarote and all touristic hotspots can be be reached within 20-45 minutes by car.

I would highly recommand to rent a car or electrobike as the village is situated in the middle of nowhere, far away from mass tourism which makes it super relaxing and authentic.

We enjoyed the delicious breakfast after Yoga and the silence and peace at Kalindi. For those who are looking for a time off from daily stress this place is highly recommanded to come down. Thanks to the hosts Roy and Nohemi for this great vacation.


I would highly recommend Kalindi to anyone visiting Lanzarote who wants to stay “off the beaten track” and away from the touristic areas – you will be made to feel extremely welcome, be given any information you require and then some, be able to enjoy free yoga every day if you fancy it and enjoy a relaxed ambience in the communal area. The rooms are basic, clean and absolutely beautiful. Try the breakfast at least once!!

We had a lovely relaxing and exciting time in Kalindi. It’s great to be able to share with other guests memories and laughters. The atmosphere in Kalindi is friendly and relax and very welcoming.

The yoga sessions are a plus to the start of an energetic and exciting day in this magic island. Nohemi and Roger are very helpful with all the information they provide for visiting Lanzarote.

All in all a great holiday for me and my teenage daughter.

Kalindi is the perfect place to chill out, connect with nature, and your body. Roy and Noemi are great hosts. The yoga session on a morning is a perfect way to start the day, followed by a tasty breakfast served outside with great views.

The outside space and seating is comfortable. You might find yourself stargazing on a night or chatting to other guests. A perfect stay in a lovely place. Thanks Roy and Noemi.

A quiet and relaxing place that gives you the possibility to calm down and recharge your batteries. I spent a week at Kalindi and it was exactly what I had expected. A rented car to get there is recommended although if you don’t plan to move around the island a lot, it is reachable by bus and then it’s about 20 mins walk.

It suited me fine as I travelled alone and had been around the island before. The location is great – very central but away from everything at the same time. I loved just walking around the trails across the main road and two days I also caught a bus to Famara beach (1,40 eur one way). I think everybody loves the morning yoga there with Roy – a nice way to start your day.

Kalindi will be the right place for you if you understand its concept and don’t expect a typical hotel or resort deal. Kalindi is a lovely and private spot where you can feel the beauty and power of nature all around.

I’m really looking back at a couple of nice days at Kalindi Yoga, situated in the middle of Lanzarote. The house is a beauty, lovely to sit in the garden and look at the hill at the horizon, doing nothing accept having a cup of tea.

You feel immediate at home, thanks to the very friendly and helpfull Francesca and her husband Christian. My room with separate bathroom was good. Kitchen and living room are shared, both very nice places to be.

The kitchen has everything you need, and a beautifull indoor garden in the middle. Lovely! I would really recommend going there, if you’re travelling on your own or with other people.

I spent 10 days at Kalindi and I found it to be one of the top places I’ve been to in Spain. Roy and Nohemi(the owners) are really cool and wonderful people and they have created a beautiful place with a very relaxed, welcoming atmosphere.

It’s for everyone, people who would like to see a small rural village, go to beaches, surf, practice/learn yoga/meditation, bicycle, hike, The place is situated in a small very cosy town with two restaurants and a supermarket and not to forget next to the a volcano(not alive) with according to me the best view on the island.

The town might be small but so is the island so everything is close if you have a bike, take the buss or have a car.
Overall I loved it and I’m sure you will aswell!
Great place to relax, restore energy, see the island and meet nice people(if you feel like it).

I spent an amazing time at Kalindi, and we became friends with the owners, Nohemi & Roy. The place is ideal to relax and enjoy life. The island, Lanzarote on the other hand is full of interesting things, and it is very easy to fall in love with her.

Time is the only concern, which flies extremely fast there. Need to go back and discover what is left, which is still a lot… Thank you guys for everything! 😉

Kalindi is located right in the heart of Lanzarote, so its location is ideal to discover the rest of the island.
The location is amazing, immersed in a mix of volcanic terrain and white sand dunes (el Jable), where your sight and senses will flow with the wind until the beautiful beach of Famara and its cliffs (El Risco).

Kalindi is not just an accomodation, is a family where you’ll get time, space and peace for yourself and the right atmosphere to share experiences with the amazing hosts Roy and Nohemi and the other interesting guests, practice yoga and meditation.

Roy is also an amazing tour guide, he dedicates plenty of time explaining the island, recommending the best excursions or guiding you on volcanic peaks and surreal landscapes.

Enjoy the silence and the infinite skies at night (the location has no light pollution), and you’ll get the perfect holiday or chance to disconnect from the routine and dedicate time to yourself.

A very special place where you can meet people from different backgrounds. The owners help you with everything you might need and we even went to have dinner with them along with other people staying at Kalindi.

It is a great location to visit the island as well.

Stayed with friends

Roy and Nohemi made my stay absolutely perfect. They are friendly, super reliable with everything and I felt very well take care of.
Kalindi is an amazing place located perfectly to explore the less touristic places of Lanzarote, but also the hubs are never far away.
It not only keeps all the promises the pictures make but is in real even much better! 

An oasis in the middle of Lanzarote, in the wind carried countryside with very welcoming hosts and beautiful, relaxing surroundings. I enjoyed my stay a lot. The food, accomodation, siestas in the hammock, waking up with yoga, surfing and local culture – a great experience.
