For those in search of a holiday that balances the mind, body and soul, our top 5 Far East retreats will have you feeling like a new you in no time.
Six Senses Yao Noi, Koh Yao, Thailand
A wellbeing retreat needs the perfect setting right? The Six Senses Yao Noi in Thailand has exactly that. Nestled in the uninhabited collection of Koh Yao Noi islands within the Phang Nha Bay National Park, Six Senses is the land of butler service, secluded lodges and stunning views across the Andaman Sea.
Visit the Thai longhouse – one of Asia’s best spas – and lose yourself in traditional Thai healing. Try the signature Yao Noi Ritual that uses medicinal-aromatic plants to heal the body back to tip top shape. Or go super indulgent and enjoy a private in-villa treatment by your own infinity-edged pool. With everything from nourishing hair treatments to coconut body scrubs and detox massages, you can get a top to toe MOT.
Rayavadee, Krabi, Thailand
Coconut groves, banyan trees and spectacular limestone cliffs. Once you step off the speedboat at Rayavadee, Krabi, the setting naturally makes the stresses and strains drift away. There are oodles of opportunities to be pampered from head to toe. Warm floral baths, invigorating massages and rehydrating body wraps only scratch the surface of the irresistible spa treatments you’ll find here.
When you’re not in the spa, pump some iron in the hotel fitness room, sink your toes into one of three pristine beaches. Or take to the jogging paths for the most scenic workout ever. The if that’s all a bit too much activity, ease those aching muscles in your private freshwater hydro pool. You’ll be walking on air when you leave this retreat.
Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Nha Trang, Vietnam
Pared back luxury meets barefoot beach shack at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay. And if you want to feel like Robinson Crusoe, this is the retreat for you. Think cleverly hidden villas in keeping with the environment, beautiful timber and private plunge pools. And if you can tear yourself away from those vistas of the East Vietnam Sea and Nha Trang mountain range, follow the stream and rocks to the incredible spa. The must-try treatment? A traditional Vietnamese massage that uses techniques from the Hmong and Dao tribes. From acupressure and green tea scrubs to oxygen infused facials, (there’s a detox programme too) this au naturel hideaway offers the perfect escape from hectic modern life.
Song Saa Private Island, Cambodia
If you want to reconnect with the healthier, more balanced you, an escape to the Song Saa private island should do the trick. Despite being just a 35 minute boat journey from Cambodia’s port of Sihanoukville, Song Saa will make the most tech-obsessed person want to switch off from the modern world.
Untouched beaches, thick rainforest and unspoilt reefs are all waiting to be explored. And you can rest assured that the luxury here comes hand in hand with sustainability and community development.
Enjoy locally sourced organic food, wildlife friendly ingredients and an all-natural spa menu that’s been designed by expert chefs and nutritionists. Yoga bunnies will be in their element with beachfront meditation and yoga at sunrise. We dare you not to feel anything but bliss when you come here.
Alila Ubud, Ubud, Bali
Dramatic infinity pools, sleek modern villas and a captivating backdrop of the Balinese foothills - this is the boutique hotel-lover’s dream. The cultural heart of Ubud is just a 15 minute journey away but this retreat is secluded enough and filled with enough traditional Balinese arts and culture to help the mind escape to another land.
Spa treatments here blend centuries-old techniques and local ingredients such as rich cocoa and coconut to awaken and balance the senses. With a big focus on promoting holistic wellbeing, you’ll find everything from Balinese beauty rituals to healthy Balinese dining to help relax the body and mind. When you’re done immersing yourself in spa heaven, kick back in the peaceful manicured gardens and gaze out to the lush valley. Paradise well and truly found.
