Seeds of Silence is not just another B&B in Portugal: this place has its own unique personality. Just like its owner, Cindy, who lovingly welcomes you with open arms in her boutique hotel in the Algarve.
We take you on a stay at Seeds of Silence, a piece of paradise far from the daily hustle and bustle, where you can relax completely.
Seeds of Silence, an oasis of luxury and calm
After just a 15-minute drive from Faro, you’ll find Seeds of Silence, a beautiful boutique hotel in the Algarve. Behind the turquoise gate, a true oasis of luxury and calm awaits you, and a beautifully landscaped garden with lush tropical plants, colourful flowers and majestic trees welcomes you.
Somewhere among the beautiful natural opulence, you can also spot some Buddha statues and other souvenirs that Cindy has brought back from her adventures in the Far East. Hidden among the oleanders at the back of the garden is the semi-open yoga room where Cindy guides you through yoga, meditation, breathwork and other sessions.
But what you can hardly ignore is the large, heated saltwater pool that invites for a lovely swim. You’ll probably immediately want to dive in! Go right ahead, because at Seeds of Silence, you’re at home.
Cindy’s home is your home
Seeds of Silence is happy to open its doors to you. A minha casa é a sua casa (my house is your house), as they say in Portuguese. Shortly after arrival, you will immediately meet our jovial and warm host Cindy. Bem-Vindo!
With great passion and enthusiasm, Cindy shows you around and shows you everything you haven’t yet discovered yourself at Seeds of Silence. The boutique hotel has very deliberately chosen a limited number of rooms, 6 in total, to create an intimate and personal atmosphere. Each room has its own bathroom and adjoins the terrace, where you can wake up in the morning with a cup of coffee in the sun while overlooking the beautiful garden.
Cindy has made it her life’s work to inspire and guide people with Seeds of Silence. To do this, she shares not only her knowledge and experiences from training sessions she took part in around the world, but also from the life lessons that shaped her and brought her to the Portuguese Algarve.
Dishes that are a pleasure for your eyes and taste buds
Cindy is – rightly – proud of the food served at her boutique hotel in the Algarve. At Seeds of Silence, you will be pampered culinarily. For example, expect a breakfast and brunch buffet with freshly baked bread (with spelt flour for those with gluten intolerance), fresh juices, home-made smoothies, local produce, homemade granola and much more. Everything is freshly prepared by the in-house team.
The chef’s focus is on delicious, healthy and organic food. The dishes’ ingredients come straight from nature. Moreover, you can choose from several vegan and gluten-free options.
Throughout the day, you can take healthy snacks, quality wines and kombucha from the honesty bar. You write down what you eat and drink, and you settle your bill at the end of your stay. Water, coffee and tea are always freely available. The tea comes from a Parisian tea house and Cindy works with local roasters for the coffee.
A stay at boutique hotel Seeds of Silence in the Algarve
What a stay at Seeds of Silence looks like? Cindy is happy to host you for a retreat. This can be a Solo Retreat, where you have Cindy’s full attention to yourself. Or you can sign up for a Small Group Retreat or a Group Retreat.
Depending on your retreat, your day will look different. Be sure to take a look at the retreats on our website for a complete overview of the schedule. Here is an example of a day at Seeds of Silence
Example of a day at our boutique hotel
You wake up in the morning after a wonderful night in your own room. You are woken by the sun and the smell of freshly baked bread. After a deliciously invigorating smoothie, it’s time for a first yoga, meditation, or breathwork session guided by Cindy.
After such an intense morning, we enjoy the sumptuous breakfast and brunch buffet together. Refuel energy with delicious, home-made dishes in beautiful ceramic plates. Pure enjoyment.
In the afternoon, you are mostly free to fill your day as you wish. Lay down on 1 of our sunbeds for a relaxing day by the pool. Or completely unwind by retreating to one of our cosy corners on the domain.
Prefer an active afternoon? Then you can work out in our own gym, hire one of our electric bikes to explore the nearest town of Olhao or enjoy the Ria Formosa nature reserve. Also highly recommended is a boat trip to the surrounding islands, where you can enjoy the white beaches, blue water and sunshine.
If you like, you can also book a massage or a personal session with Cindy to work on your internal growth. A workshop is also possible. How would you feel about painting your own ceramic pot?
At the end of the afternoon there is usually a second session planned: a body scan, reiki, sound healing or meditation for example. Afterwards, it is time for a cosy dinner. The evening ends as you wish, for example with a relaxing session in the sauna, or with a last, refreshing dip in the pool.
Before going to bed, take a shower. Each room has its own bathroom, equipped with biodegradable shampoo, conditioner and shower creams of the highest quality. Bath towels, bathrobes and beach towels are all provided.
This is an example of what a day during our retreats looks like. You can also stay at Seeds of Silence using our B&B formula. Find more information about staying at the boutique hotel here.

Your healing has really put me in a positive flow. I've already taken a course. I am really grateful that you helped me to make a better connection with myself.
Your coaching was great yesterday. I'm so glad I could join you. You really have no idea how good and powerful you are with other people.
Cindy, thank you so much for getting me on the right track! This means a lot to me.
