Anantara launches innovative new wellness concept

Anantara launches innovative new wellness concept
October 5, 2014

Luxury hotels group Anantara has introduced ‘Balance’ – an innovative new wellness concept that aims to motivate each guest to pursue their personal passions and goals through bespoke and inspirational experiences.

Balance offers a wide range of different wellness elements for guests to choose from, supported by expert guidance and personalised programs. Wellness cuisine offers delicious, nutritional options. Cooking classes with interesting themes such as ‘food as medicine’ and ‘healthy dietary alternatives’ to teach new skills for guests to take back home. Fitness classes help to burn off excess weight, tone the body and de-stress the mind, accompanied by energy enhancing holistic exercise.

Anantara Spa treatments range from indigenous rituals and products to revered ancient traditions and advanced western techniques.

In a mentoring approach, educational seminars create a deeper awareness of health and wellbeing, giving guests the knowledge and practical life coaching skills to implement a more balanced lifestyle into their daily routine.

In addition, a ‘Masters of Wellness’ visiting practitioner calendar offers holistic healing therapies by trusted experts that have been hand selected by Anantara.

Balance experiences can focus on weight loss and body toning, detoxing and anti-ageing, de-stressing or holistic healing, or simply the satisfaction of returning from holiday looking and feeling great. A guest can enjoy wellness meals and drinks by day, splurge on a steak and wine dinner at night, and choose whether to sign up for a Balance cooking class so that they can incorporate healthier eating habits when they return home.

Those who are new to holistic exercise can try a yoga or tai chi class, with the option of having a tailored package of classes created for them afterwards. The flexible approach allows holidaymakers to split their vacation time, perhaps choosing one week of comprehensive wellness activities and the second free to spoil themselves. Those in need of healing can benefit from holistic modalities to address imbalances, blockages or unhealthy patterns, with the option of trying just one session to see how they feel about it at first, or making good use of the space and time that a holiday affords by booking a series of healing sessions for maximum results.

Anantara guests can look forward to finding their own personal balance in some of the world’s most exotic destinations. In line with Anantara’s philosophy of offering authentic indigenous experiences, a program of visiting practitioners specialising in Traditional Thai Medicine (TTM) is now available at four of Anantara’s signature properties - Anantara Chiang Mai Resort & Spa and Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in northern Thailand, as well as Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa and Anantara Phuket Villas on the tropical island of Phuket.

TTM focuses on rebalancing each person’s natural composition of elements to prevent disease and promote health and rehabilitation through traditional Thai treatments and herbal medicines, as well as diet and exercises for the body and mind.
