Located on the stunning and already travel-worthy Algarve coast of Portugal, the natural beauty speaks for itself. The retreat offers holistic and thoughtful itineraries for new parents to kick start their self-care journey in a healthy way. This postnatal retreat focuses on clean eating, healthy lifestyles, fitness, wellness and balance — all with your new baby in tow.

The retreat includes six nights in a double room accommodation for two parents and their baby (full board); health-focused meals (up to one glass of wine); complimentary creche for babies aged 6-23 months, available upon booking and subject to availability; one 50-minute massage per parent; two fitness classes each day, per adult; one personal training session per week, per adult; one daily Mindfulness Class per adult; and one expert Q&A group session for all adult guests.


Prices begin at €3,500 (about $3,894) for two parents and one baby for the duration of the retreat.


The retreat is designed to bring new parents together through a focus on wellness, relaxation, health and family — all in a luxury 5-star resort setting. Enjoy the stunning landscape of Portugal with the luxury services of an award-winning resort. Not a bad way to bond as new parents, indulging in some much-deserved “us” and “me” time.

The concept behind the luxury getaway is one any family can appreciate — a balanced routine with a focus on mental and physical health helps individuals thrive — this retreat just happens to accommodate babies, unlike many other wellness-focused getaways.

Guests can pick and choose fitness classes, enjoy mindful meditation and dine on expertly designed meals, including fresh, locally sourced and healthy Mediterranean flavors. It’s all about balance, so feel free to enjoy a glass of wine with your meal.


Reconnect, unwind and focus on your needs as adults, not just parents, amid the whirlwind of bringing a new baby home.

Friday: Spend a Weekend Riding History on California’s Highway 1 Discovery Route

Tucked into the central coast of California is a trail of history waiting to be found by your kids. The Highway 1 Discovery Route through San Luis Obispo County snakes along the winnowy Pacific Coast Highway, CA-1, between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The more than 100 miles of mostly protected coastline begins after a four-hour drive from San Francisco at Ragged Point, or about three hours from Los Angeles at Nipomo. The trail features 10 cities, connected by cliffs, carved by a moody ocean, and a slower pace of life. There are plenty of reasons to stop and walk into the past, preserved by those whose hearts still live there. Nature lovers will linger on the many trails to hike and picnic areas. We drove from Los Angeles with two 9-year-old boys to explore this part of the state.
