Cal Reiet is more than a hotel. It’s more than a holistic retreat escape. It’s a family. And everyone involved in this beautiful project is unique. We believe in the power of people, in the power of doing good things for others and in the power of healing as a group, because empathy is what’s most important to build up. So now we have decided to introduce the Cal Reiet team members individually for you to get to know them better, to understand their background and to discover why they are working with us at Cal Reiet. Here goes our ‘meet the team’ article!
Change & grow
It was the beginning of 2016. I worked in the restaurant industry for over eleven years, travelled and worked all over the world, finished my bachelor in Marketing and Communications, had my first years of experience in that sector and I knew one thing for sure: I am going to work in the field of marketing, never again in gastronomy, will always live in the Netherlands and will continue exploring the world and its treasures. A few months later almost everything changed. I met a Majorcan man and followed my heart to Mallorca. Once we got there, working in marketing and communications was hard, since I don’t speak and write fluent Spanish. So what now? Where am I good at? Where is my heart? I had lots of experience in the hospitality world, but what was truly important to me, was working at a place where I could learn and grow. My last experiences in the Netherlands were disappointing, which is why I wasn’t sure about what to expect. Cal Reiet crossed my path after a recommendation of a friend. It was love at first sight.
Even though I am not a vegetarian, nor a yogi, this place got me, it conquered my heart with an incredible atmosphere, with a beautiful garden I still enjoy every day and with amazing carefully chosen food dishes.
At Cal Reiet we don’t only offer our guests a relaxed atmosphere, a world where you can learn and grow, a place to experience new things – whether it is yoga, vegetarian/vegan food, a cooking class, a place to find yourself, to relax completely, a meditation or healing session, but we offer our staff the same. Part of our philosophy is: “We embrace lifelong learning, and our intention is not to be everything to everyone, but rather, to offer each individual their own space in which to grow.” That makes Cal Reiet a very special and unique place to be and work at. A place where I am able to learn, make mistakes and grow every day.
So I would like you to come, explore and enjoy my favorite part of the day at Cal Reiet; a yoga class in the morning by one of our fantastic teachers, followed by an amazingly prepared breakfast buffet at a table in our colorful garden. Not because you are specifically a yogi or a vegetarian, but because you are a person how loves to see new places, loves to experience new things and loves to try local grown ingredients in our dishes. Hope to welcome you soon!
