Orada is a family-run, eco-sustainable, community-based soul retreat center, nestles in 71 hectares of nature and privacy, created with the aim of expanding health and proposing purposeful transformational experiences. Orada is a transitional educational community promoting and bridging spiritual, ecological, and transformative embodied experiences and retreats towards a transition into new attitudes and paradigm community living. It is found in the heart of a nature sanctuary in the woods of Odemira, Alentejo, South West Portugal, bordering Algarve.

Orada focuses on organic farming and conscious nutrition, meditation, and nature contemplation spaces. Orada is a space holding community and a force for innovative possibilities and new mindsets. Orada was founded on the vision that nature, health, sustainability, and community are fundamental insights to transition out of the toxicity of modern times. It is a place to get inspired and redesign life on earth and manifest collective awakening.

Orada is equipped with a bio-pool, yoga and meditation temple, panoramic solarium, rooftop terrace, bird watching habitat, and a natural fire amphitheater. Peace and nourishment are easily accessible throughout the property. Orada offers different accommodation types from private suites and bungalows to tepees and cozy dorm rooms. The buildings and retreat facilities were reconstructed using traditional and organic materials (adobe) giving this beautiful property not only an authentic Portuguese feel but also providing a healthy and comfortable environment in all weather.
