Holiday Itinerary

It can be a challenge to not only reach your target weight, but to maintain it when coupled with the stresses of daily life. This weight loss retreat, set in an idyllic Thai paradise dedicated to wellbeing, takes a holistic approach to weight management to enable you to live in harmony with yourself and the food you eat.

You’ll begin with personal wellness and fitness assessments, to adapt the programme to your own personal goals and needs. Through a range of carefully selected techniques and activities including fitness classes, improved nutritional habits, massage and wrap treatments to eliminate toxins and boost natural immunity, and meditative yoga, you will restore your balance, calmness, and gentle self-discipline in an encouraging environment.

Personalised fitness sessions cover a variety of exercise, including gentle Pilates reformer classes, cardio-vascular, fit ball, endurance and resistance training to name a few. Group fitness and yoga sessions help raise your activity levels, in a mutually supportive atmosphere.

Unwind with cleansing therapies including colon hydrotherapy which help to eliminate any physical blockages to weight loss, coupled with hypnotherapy and reiki sessions from experienced practitioners to provide you with emotional support to help you to achieve your goals.

This course is intensive, but it’s not all hard work. Enjoy a whole range of wrap, ritual and massage treatments, scrubs, sauna and anti-cellulite treatments, colon hydrotherapy, and access to the pool, steam room and mini theatre. There’s time simply to relax and let go, and let the dedicated staff take over. 

Power blast shakes boost your energy levels between bouts of exercise, and the spa restaurant will feed your body and soul three beautiful, balanced meals a day. Cuisine is based on fresh, organic, and locally sourced ingredients. There is also one cookery class during your stay, where you’ll learn to prepare dishes you’ll love for sustainable weight management long after you’ve gone home.

You also have the option to keep in contact via Skype with your wellness consultant after you leave the resort to ensure you have the support needed to sustain your weight loss (at an extra charge), and the course includes daily dietary supplements to aid the weight loss process. Before departure you’ll have a final ‘debriefing’ with your consultant, giving you further pointers on how to continue to nurture and motivate yourself once home.

This boutique resort is devoted to wellness and is the perfect location to help you find your way to physical and emotional weight stabilisation at this weight loss retreat with a difference.
