The Why

Behind Casa Koya

Welcome to Casa Koya - a tranquil sanctuary in the heart of Alentejo, Portugal, where every corner whispers tales of peace, comfort, and rejuvenation.

 

Casa Koya is more than just a place to stay; it's a culmination of my life's work and experiences, fueled by a deep-seated desire to help people find solace amidst modern life chaos.

 

My journey began as an Emergency Medicine Nurse in Lisbon Portugal. In 2012 I decided to go on my first major adventure in life. I packed my bags and went to work at a major Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Looking back, this was one of the most life-changing decisions yet. As an Emergency Nurse, I have seen ... almost everything!

In recent years I have witnessed firsthand the toll that stress and burnout can take on individuals and families. After fifteen years of navigating demanding environments across different countries, I recognized the limitations of traditional healthcare in promoting holistic well-being. The healthcare system appears to be experiencing significant challenges, resulting in a notable impact on my health and overall well-being. During the tumultuous times of the pandemic, I hit a breaking point with burnout and felt the urge to reconnect with my roots, purpose, and passion for wellness. 

Acquiring the land that is now Casa Koya became my dream of hope. I have been building it with the vision of creating a sanctuary, where people could seek refuge from their daily struggles and rediscover harmony within themselves in nature. With a mission to empower individuals to optimize their health and well-being, Casa Koya stands as a testament to the transformative power of mindful living and holistic wellness.

Casa Koya today is not only me but a group of individuals and local businesses. At Casa Koya, every detail is meticulously crafted to offer guests a transformative experience. From the serene ambiance of our facilities to the warm hospitality of our dedicated team, we strive to create a home away from home where guests can unwind, rejuvenate, and reconnect with their inner selves.

 

Our curated wellness retreats are designed to nurture the mind, body, and soul, offering a diverse array of services such as yoga classes, massages, wellness consultations, dedicated expert workshops, and organic meals made with locally sourced ingredients.

With a steadfast commitment to sustainability and mindful living, Casa Koya endeavors to minimize its environmental footprint and inspire a deeper connection with the natural world.

 

In essence, Casa Koya is more than just a destination; it's an invitation to embark on a journey of self-discovery, renewal, and transformation. We invite you to step into our tranquil oasis and experience the magic of Casa Koya for yourself.

Come, immerse yourself in the serenity of nature, and rediscover the true meaning of well-being.

Welcome home 

I hope to welcome you soon.
