Forget about La Dolce Vita… in 2019, it’s all about La Dolce Vitality—or at least, it is at Le Sirenuse new fitness boot camp on the Amalfi Coast. Showcasing a healthier side to the popular holiday destination of Positano, Italy, the Dolce Vitality boot camp makes use of spectacular coastlines in its week-long fitness, detox and weight loss retreat.
Hosted at the prestigious Le Sirenuse Hotel in Positano, the retreat aims to sculpt, tone and cleanse with a rigorous schedule of hikes, yoga and spa therapies, all complemented by nutritious and detoxifying vegan cuisine from a Michelin-starred chef. The Mediterranean menu is a carefully controlled low-calorie diet designed to aid weight loss while providing the optimum energy to enjoy the physical activities at Dolce Vitality. Showing that less can be more and helping guests to recalibrate their digestive and eating habits, there’s no caffeine or alcohol on this retreat, so retreaters will have to get their energy through more wholesome, exercise-related methods.
Taking advantage of the beauty of the surrounding area, this fitness retreat focuses on high-energy hikes through the natural landscape to help guests reconnect with nature and themselves. Explore lemon and olive groves, pass by ancient shrines, and revel in panoramic views as you enjoy the fresh air of the Amalfi Coast.
The hikes make use of the steep terrain around Positano, allowing retreat-goers to explore a lesser-seen part of the famous town with local guides to trek through the mountains—not to mention a unique perspective of the coast. One of the morning hikes will take place at the nearby Mount Vesuvius, giving guests the chance to climb an active volcano.
With only 20 places available and just two retreats a year, this exclusive retreat includes six nights of luxurious accommodation at Le Sirenese, five guided treks, one-to-one consultation with a nutritionist, daily stretching, yoga and low-impact strength training classes, and daily restorative massages and spa treatments. Retreat guests have full access to the hotel’s swimming pool, sauna and Turkish bath to relax in style.
Sweating it out in the sun and then recovering in five-star fashion? La Dolce Vita never felt this good.
