Fitness retreats that don’t stint on the indulgences? Sign us up. Tone Escapes is a series of luxurious active breaks launching on October 23 at JK Place Capri, followed by those in the South of France, Santorini, Marbella, and the Dolomites – each designed to burn calories and still delight the senses. Think hiking, biking and sailing combined with culture, gastronomy and restorative spa treatments.
Adventures are under the guidance of New York-based SoulCycle instructor, Mantas Zvinas, and those on Amalfi Coast (October 23-29, limited to 15 people; from $3,925) kick off with morning workouts on the Phoenician Steps, followed by island explorations, sunset yoga and kayaking – all punctuated with leisurely lunches and alfresco dinners.
Guests on the Santorini trip in May (4-10, from $5,550, again for a maximum of 15) will, from their Canaves Oia hotel base, be put through their paces climbing the island’s hills, while those at Marbella’s Finca Cortesin (March 23-29) will head to the beach for their windsurfing, paddle boarding and kayaking workouts. Hikes up the Baou Mountain are the order of the day at Château Saint-Martin on the Cote d’Azur from April 29-May 6 – followed by tastings at the hotel’s Michelin star restaurant, Le Saint Martin.
The series concludes at the historic five-star Rosa Alpina in the Dolomites from June 9-15 (from $4,950), where high-intensity hikes, strength training and expeditions into the UNESCO World Heritage site-protected landscape will be gastronomically rewarded at the hotel’s four restaurants.
