Innovative Series of Wellness Programs launched in Oman

Innovative Series of Wellness Programs launched in Oman
January 24, 2019

Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara has launched an innovative series of wellness programmes, Balance Wellness, led by the resort’s new Wellness Guru, Ratheesh Krishnan.

Balance Wellness by Anantara is designed to offer a transformative travel experience in the heart of one of Oman’s most stunning destinations. 

Krishnan brings 14 years of experience in the health industry and widespread experience at various leading resorts and seeks to deliver an integration of the body, mind and spirit to reach optimum health. 

Nestled between a spectacular private beach and freshwater lagoon, Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara allows guests to pursue their wellbeing goals in a serene, idyllic environment.

Delivering wellness packages tailored to each guest, the programme starts with a consultation to ascertain the needs and goals of the individual. Depending on the length of the stay, guests can then choose from a wide array of healthy cuisine, as well as activities, and therapies to suit them based on guidance from trained experts. 

“In line with our fundamental approach to customer service at Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara, we really wanted to provide a bespoke experience for our wellness guests,” said James Hewitson, General Manager, Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara.

“In addition, we have the unique offering of private pool villas in which guests seeking more solitude on their journey to wellbeing can enjoy activities and meals on their own personal pool terrace.”

One highlight of the wellness program is experiencing Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara’s luxury hammam, the only one in the region. Drawing on centuries of Arabian wellness – the ancient ritual starts with a muscle-relaxing steam bath in preparation for a black soap cleansing and kessa mitt exfoliation to sweep impurities. Once steamed and scrubbed, a Moroccan Rhassoul treatment richly nourishes and rehydrates, leaving the skin silky soft. Other healing therapies include Kundalini massage and Shirodhara - a unique Ayuvedic therapy focusing on the head, to harmonise the entire body.

Available in three, five or seven-day packages, the retreats include rejuvenating spa treatments, purification therapy and nutritious cuisine along with individual activity sessions such as yoga and hiking the beautiful mountainous coast of Salalah.

Full board dining centred on nutrition is designed specially to encourage good health and fuel the body efficiently. 

Hoping to dispel the myth that health retreats mean boring meal times, the Balance Wellness by Anantara menu has been created by renowned Italian vegan chef Valeria Agnelutto. Designed to detoxify and energise the system while delivering maximum flavour, dishes include Italian pasta e fagioli and chickpea burgers with rosemary and parsley and veggie mayo. The three-course meals also include delicious starters such as avocado tartare with cucumber and dates and raw tiramisu for dessert. Each dish comes with a detailed nutritional breakdown and is accompanied by vitamin-packed raw juice.
