PLAY

It’s not just about getting better at the sport you love. It’s also about having fun and meeting new people; leaving you energised and creating great memories.

Of course, if you’re a complete beginner, that works too. This retreat is a cosy one with only 16 spots. It allows us to adjust the coaching to your level of play and focus more on you and your experience.

Swedes are crazy about padel & so will you'; after this trip!

What's more, just 20 minutes away, you'll find its archipelago, home to over 30,000 islands! Its nature is unparalleled – wonderfully green, lush, and serene.

unwind

We sent out the FPR team to visit, test out and select the best padel clubs, hotels, restaurants, bars and more – all this to ensure you can take this time to unwind and ‘just be’….

We found you the trendiest spot in the Stockholm Archipelago - Ellery Beach House - to unpack + one of the largest indoor padel clubs in Sweden with top coaches.

Questions & Answers

(a) You simply click on a ‘Book’ button anywhere on our website & fill out the form. Remember that your trip is not guaranteed until we have at least 6 people signed up for the retreat.

(b) To secure a booking:you must pay us (or our authorised travel agent) a deposit or  make full payment if the booking is made within 30 days of your “Retreat Start Date” (i.e. the day you are required to check-in to your hotel at the relevant retreat destination). It might be a good idea to  contact us if you are booking so close to a retreat date!

(d) You are required to pay the full balance at least 30 days before the Retreat Start Date if you’ve only paid a deposit.

Note that when you submit your booking request, we will treat this as a ‘not-guaranteed’’ booking, at this point the booking is only provisional and is not confirmed. Your booking is accepted and becomes definite only from the date when we send you an e-mail to confirm that your ‘on request’ booking has been confirmed. For bookings made via our website, any acknowledgement of your booking request we send to you in the meantime is not a confirmation of your booking. 

Please refer to the Flamingo Padel Retreat Booking Terms & Conditions (the “Booking Terms” for full details).

We accept any card payment from Visa or Mastercard and depending on payment method, also American Express. 

We accept payments in up to 30 currencies, depending on the payment method. 

We generally accept payments made using a prepaid, debit or credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay or Revolut Pay.

There is more information on currencies and  payment methods here.

Just so you know: while we accept payments in multiple currencies to facilitate your purchases and make your jet-setter lifestyle a bit easier, we cannot control or predict any additional fees that may be charged by your card issuer, bank, or financial institution. This may include currency conversion fees, transaction fees, or other charges associated with processing payments in your local currency. So it’s always best to consult with your bank or card issuer to understand any potential additional costs you may incur when making a payment.

No. Timing of flights, from which airport, what cabin, arrival times, etc. – you are the expert in this department, so we leave it to you to book your own flight and transportation to and from airports. Of course, we are always here to assist if you need any help (e.g. getting to Ellery Beach House from Stockholm airports).

In order for a retreat to be guaranteed we require the minimum group size to have been met (typically six people). Once your retreat is confirmed by our team, you can go ahead and book your flight.

For all destinations we strongly recommend that you purchase flexible flight tickets as well as travel insurance that includes Covid-19 cancellation cover in the event you need to amend or cancel your flight tickets.

We will confirm that a retreat is going ahead no later than 30 days prior to the date your retreat is due to start.

The simplest option is to fly into and out of Stockholm Arlanda, which is Stockholm’s largest international airport. However, if your flights are scheduled to arrive at the smaller airport of Bromma Airport, it is the nearest to Ellery Beach House.

There are airport trains that take you to the centre of Stockholm. Ellery is around 20 minutes drive from Stockholm City rail station.  Closer to your retreat, we will provide you with instructions on how to reach Ellery Beach House.

We recommend taking a flight that arrives before 12 pm on Day 1, so you can unpack, chill by the pool & freshen up before the welcome drinks (typically around 6pm local time). 

It’s your last day, so it’s really up to you. If you can handle it, we offer more padel play (but no coaching) on your last day until you need to catch your flight! If all other fellow flamingos are flying early, we can do our best to hook you up with 3 other Spanish players to play with. Just let us know before your retreat start date.

You do not normally need a visa if you’re visiting as a tourist from the EU, UK, USA, Australia or Canada. Please check with your local consulate/embassy if the country you are travelling from requires a visa.

From 2024, ETIAS travel authorisation will be an entry requirement for visa-exempt nationals travelling to European countries. 

We recommend that you have at least six months validity remaining on your passport and can show a return ticket.

Our pricing for each retreat is based on a shared hotel room but there are options. You can either (a) team up with a friend and share a room, (b) upgrade so you can have a room all to yourself, or (c) get on our list for guests who are excited to meet new people and are happy to share a room with another retreater. 

In the case of (c), we will do our best to find you a suitable roommate but we cannot guarantee anything. All you need to do for this option is to pay a small deposit which will be refunded to you if we don’t manage to find someone suitable to share with.

We’ve designed our retreats so that they are suitable for all levels of play – although our  focus is on beginners and mid-level players. Our coaches will evaluate individual levels at the beginning of the first coaching session to optimise the groups’ coaching experience and assign each retreater a rating (more on ratings here).

Players will typically then be coached in groups according to their rating. In our experience, even if you are a total beginner, you will only need 1 hour of tuition to be able to enjoy padel at the amateur level.

If you are an advanced player with a rating of 5 and above (according to the LTA Padel Rating System), and you feel that you would benefit more from 1-on-1 coaching, then we are happy to arrange that for you at an extra cost.

If our partner club is not walking distance from your hotel, we typically chauffeur you to the padel club and bring you back to the hotel. Refer to the relevant retreat brochure for more information.

In short, no. But we would really love it if you did! Why: (1) from our experience, getting to know your fellow retreaters has a great impact on your overall holiday experience, (2) we’ve carefully selected and tested Ellery Beach House; you really don’t want to miss out, and (3) it’s included in your package! Please do tell us in advance if you are not participating in any of our activities.

We’re obsessed about you meeting new people, but we know not every flamingo fancies the same flock! That’s why we’ve crafted tailor-made trips: the ‘FRIENDS EDITION’ for those keen on kindling new friendships, and the ‘SINGLES EDITION’ for the happily single adventurers eager to mingle with fellow solo flyers. And because we love shaking things up, we occasionally launch ‘Special Editions’ – unique, experimental retreats. Right now, we’re excited to offer a Special Edition Retreat specifically designed for folks in their 40’s & 50’s!

We know being 30 years of age and under can often be challenging from a 💸 perspective. There is so much fun to get up to but your boss refuses to give you that raise! Our Under30 pricing allows you to travel in style but on a slightly lower budget. Just contact us in advance!

You Are Welcome!

Yes. They apply to all Barcelona retreats. Our FAQs on a separate page apply to all our retreats, including this one. We recommend that you take a look at these as well as they may answer other questions you may have re your trip!
