Whether you’re looking for relief from stress, anxiety or illness, some time off from the kids, or simply want to recharge, we reckon you’ll be grabbing your yoga kit and making for Changi once you hear all about the five-star luxury Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat & Spa in beautiful Bali, Indonesia – especially since they’re offering 20 percent off all rejuvenation packages for 2015.
Set amongst rice paddies and lush jungle, the boutique health and wellness retreat combines the traditional healing benefits of Ayurveda – an ancient system that originated in India thousands of years ago – with daily yoga sessions, spa treatments, meditation, diet and lifestyle seminars.
The purpose of it all? Only to balance the mind, body and soul, which sounds totally achievable when you’re shacked up in one of Sukhavati’s eight gorgeous one-or two-bedroom villas – four of which have their own pool – with gourmet chefs serving up yummy Ayurvedic vegetarian dishes on your private balcony (there’s full butler service, y’know) and a wellness team of Ayurvedic doctors, consultants,naturopaths, spa therapists and yoga and meditation teachers on hand to help you detoxify and relax!
Each guest will be given a personal consultation on the day they arrive to plan their specialised treatment programme according to any areas of concern, whether that’s anxiety, stress, illness, fatigue or insomnia. Then you’ll yoga here, spa there and meditate everywhere, with regular pit-stops at the River Dining Pavilion or River Deck to refuel on the freshest organic ingredients sourced from local growers and, seasonally, from the estate.
So now all that’s left is to decide how much rejuvenation you need exactly! Sukhavati offers everything from a one-day Taste of Ayurveda programme, a 4-day Taste of Wellness programme, a 7-day Refresh programme, a 10-day Revive programme and a 14-day Deep Healing programme, all the way through to a 21-day Complete Rejuvenation and Wellness Programme that’ll banish deep-rooted stress from the mind and body, while building the immune system and repairing damaged tissue (hello anti-ageing!).
Included in each package is private villa accommodation, consultations with the Ayurvedic doctor, daily foot massages, facials, twice-daily yoga sessions, freshly prepared vegetarian meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as herbal teas and juices, seminars on Ayurvedic lifestyle and diet, a traditional Balinese Gala evening, local village walks, airport transfers and free Wi-Fi.
Psst! Don’t leave without snapping up a copy of The Sukhavati Cookbook, a collection of Ayurvedic recipes straight from Sukhavati’s menu that you can whip up at home – think a combination of Indian and Balinese cuisine that’s all about nourishment and cleansing. You wouldn’t want all your recharging to be in vain once back in Singers now, would you?
