Top 5 wellness experiences in Asia

From simple beach massages to yoga retreats and Ayurvedic consultations, Asia is synonymous with wellness experiences which range from hard work to hedonistic.  All of these can be included in a customized itinerary. Here are Asia Answers Top 5:   

Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand
The most popular program at Kamalaya is without a doubt its seven-night Comprehensive Detox & Rejuvenation Program. This is serious stuff; the program includes daily therapies, such as colonics, massages and exercise, and includes nutritional supplements and healthy meals. It is an integrated approach, fusing Eastern and Western medical traditions, to create a foundation for optimum health and to experience the ‘lightness of being’. Kamalaya has also launched a popular Sleep Retreat to improve your sleep cycle and get that much needed shut-eye.

Song Saa, Cambodia  
Choose to Refresh, Revive or Rejuvenate on this glorious private island just off the coast of Cambodia.  Whichever program you choose, you will find it cleansing and empowering, allowing you to take control of your health, and create a base for well-being and happiness. The retreat includes diet, physical activities (paddle boarding, yoga, Buddhist blessing, Khmer cooking class), as well as therapeutic massages and baths to purify and detoxify.

Fivelements,  Bali
Fivelements offers a life-altering program for rejuvenation, replenishment and alignment including Balinese-inspired healing therapies, such as rituals for purification, balancing and regeneration, as well as an array of scrumptious clean foods and sacred arts. The program is designed to allow your highest potential and an organic healing to unfold on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. The retreat is available for individuals, couples and small groups and requires a minimum of three nights. A more rigorous cleansing program, which takes transformation to the next level, is the Signature Detox Retreat, Tri Kaya Parisudha.

The Farm at San Benito, Philippines

After an initial blood analysis, treatments, include acupuncture, reflexology, colonics, massages, body salt baths, a fitness evaluation, cardio classes, yoga and meditation.

Guests leave with an improved sense of well-being, clearer and smoother skin, newly gained nutritional advice… and fewer pounds.
Ananda Yoga and Ayurvedic Spa, Rishikesh, India
In the foothills of the Himalayas in a former Maharaja’s palace, is the most luxurious, authentic Ayurvedic wellness center in India. Ananda is primarily oriented around Panchakarma programs that require a 7-night stay. Accommodation is simple and elegant—with balconies and bathtubs that offer sweeping views of Rishikesh, monkey colonies, and the cloud canopy below. After a consultation, guests are advised about programs comprising Ayurvedic rejuvenation, detox, yoga, along with customized meals. Some treatments are rejuvenating and relaxing while others are detoxifying. The yoga practiced here is of the ancient sort: slow, meaningful, one-on-one Hatha, and the evening meditation is as soothing as being rocked to sleep.
