Mindful Retreats: Four Wellness Focused Escapes

12 January, 2017

Yoga and relaxation retreats

 

Start 2017 on the right foot and treat yourself to a revitalising retreat to soothe both mind and body. From yoga sessions amidst Siem Reap temples to spa treatments under the jungle canopies of Ubud, travel experts Mr & Mrs Smith have hand-selected their pick of the most rejuvenating wellness retreats, where you’re invited to unplug, recharge, and then kick-start the year feeling refreshed!

wellness retreat shambhala
Como Shambhala Estate, Ubud, Bali

Follow in the beautifully pedicured footsteps of beauty editors and yogis worldwide, straighten yourself out at boutique spa Como Shambhala Estate in Begawan Village, a 15-minute drive from Ubud. Surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation and well-known for its back-to-nature approach, Shambhala promises to soothe, relax, cosset and revivify you in its thatched-pavilion setting; its East-meets-West treatments won’t be readily forgotten.

Smith Extra: A Como Shambhala aromatherapy gift; GoldSmiths will also receive a 60-minute massage for two for five-night stays or more.

wellness retreat shreyas retreat

Shreyas Retreat, Karnataka, India

Canopied cottages, yoga pavilions and meditation huts dot the gorgeous grounds of this secluded sanctuary an hour north of Bangalore. With smoking and drinking forbidden – and delicious vegetarian cuisine on the menu – this is a place where detox and utter relaxation is the order of the day. From the moment you arrive, your bespoke wellness programme will be tailored to your specific needs, making your stay the ‘me time’ you’ve always dreamed of.

Smith Extra: A cooking lesson with the chef and a visit to the local school to share your new-found skills, or, a tour of the local temples.

wellness retreat navutu dreams
Navutu Dreams Resort & Wellness Retreat, Siem Reap, Cambodia

On the rural outskirts of Cambodia’s famous inland temple town stands the Mediterranean-inspired Navutu Dreams Resort & Wellness Retreat. With three beautiful pools set around its central restaurant and fringed with shaded loungers, hotel guests can choose to dip in the freshwater lap pool or the saltwater lounge pool. Regular yoga classes and spa treatments soothe tense bodies in the intimate Navutu Spa, but whatever you choose to do at Navutu, you’re sure to find your inner bliss!

Smith extra: A free, daily tuk-tuk service (for up to 12 hours) for exploring the city and Angkor Wat; two passes to one of the hotel’s daily yoga classes; a welcome mocktail, and a hand-woven cotton scarf to take home.

Ananda wellness retreat
Ananda in the Himalayas, Himalayas, India

Gem-like gardens give way to traditional white buildings, dotted beneath the gaze of the imposing Viceregal Palace: this is Ananda in the Himalayas, where the other-worldly mountain setting is just one element of this luxurious spa hotel’s charm. Find your inner yoga bunny with twice-daily classes, then reward yourself with indulgent afternoon massages and ayurvedic treatments before reserving the treetop table at the sumptuous restaurant. Let acclaimed chef, Sandeep Biswas tempt you with his individually curated menus of Indian and European cuisine before a fulfilling night’s sleep back in your room, where your grand four-poster is fit for royalty.

Smith extra: Evening aarti ceremony (with songs and spiritual rituals) by the Ganges in Rishiskesh

With Mr & Mrs Smith you’ll enjoy our best-price guarantee, as well as a little something extra on arrival at every hotel. To book, call toll free at 800 905 326 or visit mrandmrssmith.com.

@ritualscosmeticshk is making its debut in the ifc mall (Unit 1066, Podium Level 1) this Friday, 20 September. For those of you who don’t know this Sassy-approved Dutch brand - it’s time to put it firmly on your radar.  Its products are designed to make us slow down and indulge in some self-care and mindfulness, which is something we can’t argue with. The first 500 people in line at the store at 4pm that day will get a goody bag worth at least $280. We’ll race you there!⁠
