From Bali to Kathmandu, the adventure and spirituality of Asia makes it the perfect destination for a luxury health retreat. Whether you’re seeking spa treatments, fitness classes or unlimited yoga – wellness bliss is just a click away.
Take a journey towards well-being as you unwind, reset and rejuvenate in pure paradise with these luxury health retreats:
Why it’s worth the visit: With its Moroccan-inspired architecture, Absolute Sanctuary infuses Moroccan luxury into your spiritual journey experience. Beyond the exterior beauty, however, the Koh Samui health retreat resort—which is located in a quaint and laid-back Fisherman’s Village—is best known for its holistic programs, making it a favorite health retreat destination among those who simply need an escape from the outside world as well as professional yogis who want to deepen their practice.
For travelers who need to de-stress, consider the Absolute Anti-Stress & Burnout Retreat, offering a six-night health retreat program highly recommended to those who feel fatigued and overworked. Starting at US $1,648 this retreat package also includes an initial wellness consultation with bio impedance analysis, a welcome dinner, group Pilates reformer or core suspend class, spa cuisine meals, fresh juices, unlimited group fitness, yoga classes and meditation sessions.
Why it’s worth the visit: India’s best-kept secret, the award-winning Ananda in the Himalayas is located in the foothills of the mystical Himalayan mountains. Nestled within the 100-acre Maharaja estate, Ananda Spa overlooks the Rishikesh and Ganges river, considered sacred by many. This Himalayan health retreat is surrounded by Sal Forest, giving you a sense of being one with nature while you meditate or set your intention for the day.
Although an eight-day Ananda Spa Detox Retreat is an investment starting at $4,340 for a Deluxe Palace or Garden View accommodation, the health retreat is the ultimate detox for the mind, body and spirit. The program is a blend of purifying dosha-specific Ayurvedic therapies, yoga, meditation, personalized Ayurvedic diet and meals, massage therapy, guided pranayama experience and two Sneha Vastis (enemas with medicated oils) for a thorough internal cleansing. The package also includes access to spa amenities like the Kneipp Hydrotherapy foot bath, chill plunge and sauna. Can you say, luxury?
Why it’s worth the visit: For those wanting to experience a taste of the Bali culture, Fivelements infuses Bali wellness and living into its health retreats. As an eco-conscious resort, Fivelements puts an emphasis on living in harmony with nature, especially since the sacred Ayung River serves as its breathtaking backdrop. Each bamboo suite features a large open-air bathtub and veranda, welcoming the fresh air from the lush forests that surround the Bali health retreat resort.
A Yovada-exclusive offering, the 4-Day Fivelements First Taste is a great starter program for rookie travelers wanting to experience holistic Balinese-inspired therapies. In these sessions, traditional Balinese healers use ancient healing techniques and wisdom to help recharge the mind and body. Starting at US $1,183, the retreat package includes three-night accommodations, two gourmet meals per day, a massage treatment, a yoga and meditation session and roundtrip airport transfer.
Why it’s worth the visit: Aleenta Phuket brings new meaning to the term “health retreat in style,” with its five-star accommodations on the tropical beach of Natai, a two-kilometer beach coast located north of Phuket Island. The resort features modern architecture, aesthetically clean yet undeniably luxurious. The resort’s Ayurah Spa and Wellness Center is where most wellness sessions take place. Mind-body practices like yoga and meditation are combined with massage and hydrotherapy to create a holistic wellness program.
Those wanting to cleanse their system while balancing their mind and body may take the four-day Aleenta Mind Treasured Retreat.
