Other amenities include an outdoor swimming pool complete with jets for natural hydromassage, an indoor wellness center with a small seawater pool for thalassotherapy, a fully equipped gym and a wine bar with an outdoor garden. There is a central “square”and multiple green and garden spaces with sweeping views of the surrounding area.
All rooms are luxurious private “apartments” complete with en suite baths, sitting areas, gorgeous beamed ceilings, tasteful, simple furnishings and beautiful views of the property.
The Borgo has a restaurant located within a beautifully restored medieval church. Breakfast will be served on the terrace overlooking the property’s expansive lawns and gardens. Meals will be prepared using locally sourced ingredients and will be accompanied by wines from nearby vineyards. Dietary restrictions and allergies can be accommodated.
The HOT HIIT® class is a movement training system that is practiced in a room heated to about 100 degrees. The class provides students with muscle toning and cardio exercises designed to rapidly create long, lean muscles while at the same time burning fat. Students will immediately notice enhanced core strength, better blood circulation, improved posture and increased flexibility in their bodies. Paired with upbeat music, the HOT HIIT® experience is a full-body workout that is low impact (protecting joints and muscles) and performed in bare feet on a yoga mat. HOT HIIT® is a practice appropriate for all levels.
The Fusion class incorporates the postures of the Hot 26 class, adding Downward-facing dog/chaturanga poses and sun salutation sequences. Fusion is practiced in a flowing Vinyasa style. The standing sequence is consistent while the floor series varies to focus on developing flexibility and strength in different areas of the body. Fusion is suitable for all levels.
bodyART™ is a high energy movement class combining yoga, Pilates, dance and martial arts. The class is done barefoot on a mat. Come prepared to move to inspiring music and to sweat!
