Perched on a beautiful mountainside overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and part of the Sierra Helada Natural Park, (recognised by the World Health Organisation as having one of the world’s best climates), this state of the art luxury wellbeing retreat combines western medical expertise, and proven, eastern alternative therapies.

SHA was born as a result of the personal experience of founder Alfredo Bataller Parietti, who for 30 years, suffered from digestive problems that affected his quality of life. Numerous doctors instructed him to follow different drug treatments – all were ineffective. In 2002, he was fortunate enough to be recommended to a doctor educated in natural therapies (now a member of SHA’s medical team) with a great breadth of knowledge about the health benefits of proper nutrition – through which he found the solution to his illness.

The Spa

SHA’s Clinic and Wellness areas span more than 6000 square meters – there’s a complete hydrotherapy circuit with two indoor swimming pools, numerous treatment rooms, a treatment suite for couples, medical rooms and relaxation areas.

The clinic area offers everything from Chinese medicine and nutrition to cosmetic dentistry and Thermage. Dotted around the clinic are anti-ageing, energy health, and stem cell units. The wellness area offers a plethora of non-invasive facials, a whole range of massages, body treatments, water therapies and personalised fitness programmes.

In 2002, he was fortunate enough to be recommended to a doctor educated in natural therapies (now a member of SHA’s medical team) with a great breadth of knowledge about the health benefits of proper nutrition – through which he found the solution to his illness.

Amazed by the results in just one month of treatment, Mr Alfredo Bataller decided to do more research into the benefits of natural therapies and healthy eating. He then shared all this knowledge in a project – SHA – combining his wisdom with latest advances in Western medicine.

The award-winning, crisp white buildings that make up SHA, are the creation of the prestigious Uruguayan architect Carlos Gilardi and the award-winning European designer Elvira Blanco Montenegro. The Resort has Zen, Mediterranean and tropical gardens; big indoor and outdoor swimming pools, waterfalls, numerous relaxation areas and a clinic and wellness area.

Luxurious minimalist suites span three contemporary buildings (all communal areas and some suites are adapted for those with reduced mobility – a big gold star in my book) with the spa, hydrotherapy and treatments rooms spanning the ground floor.

The Programme

My taster of The SHA Discovery Programme began with a thorough lifestyle health and diet consultation and medical check up followed by a fitness assessment with a personal training session. The programme has been created to enable you to dedicate some time to yourself, whilst you learn, in just four days, about healthy habits for your body. Both the series of treatments and the macrobiotic diet are determined by the initial general health consultations.

The gentle fitness programme prescribed included glorious walks and Powerplate workouts – which I actually grew to love. The macrobiotic diet served up at Shamadi was delicious and plentiful. After just four days I was 4lbs lighter, toned, tanned and glowing.

An all round enjoyable gentle re-boot and rejuvenation programme, with wonderful hydrotherapy facilities and excellent spa treatments, in beautiful surroundings.

The SHA Discovery Programme includes:

  • General medical examination
  • Medical consultation
  • Consultation with an expert on nutrition and natural therapy
  • SHA diet according to the prescription (full board)

  • 1 traditional Chinese medicine treatment session, according to the prescription (acupuncture or moxibustion)

To Stay

My superior suite was HUGE. Bright, airy and styled in calming neutral tones, there was a large lounge – with healthy mini-bar and coffee machine – a walk-in wardrobe, and a bedroom with floor to ceiling windows. The balcony, boasting views of the mountains, was furnished with sun loungers and a dining table.

To Eat

With stunning views out onto the bay of Altea, SHAMADI offers three different types of healthy menu (SHA, Biolight and Kushi) customised to suit guests’ particular needs.

  • Kushi 700 calories

The three types of diet are adapted to the seasons, making an effort to use cereals, legumes, vegetables, fish and cooking methods that are best suited to each season. None of the menus include meat, eggs, dairy products, sugar or other artificial sweetenersI was prescribed the Biolight diet which was surprisingly plentiful!
Breakfasts consisted of cereals with soya or almond milk, fruit and gluten free crackers. For lunch and dinner I dined on gluten free pasta, vegetables and fish. All of my meals were served with a delicious juice and herbal tea.
