We’ve listed our top 5 unique wellness experiences around the world to spark a bit of wellness wanderlust in the New Year.
Open-Air Cold Bath, Arctic Bath, Sweden
Situated under the northern lights in winter, and the midnight sun during the summer months, Arctic Bath is a unique hotel and spa experience that welcomes guests to immerse themselves in the elements while leaving a minimal environmental footprint behind. Let an open-air cold bath under the northern sky revitalize you from the inside out as you take in the surrounding elements. You can also book a treatment with one of the certified therapists who will guide you as you find your optimal health level. The treatments focus on both the inside and outside. A visit to our Arctic spa includes a bathrobe, bathing suit or shorts and natural spa products from Kerstin Florian, all of which you can take home after your stay.
Mindfulness & Stress Management, Amanyara, Turks & Caicos
Travellers looking to relax, rejuvenate and restore in the New Year can find ultimate serenity at Amanyara, a Caribbean oasis in the Turks & Caicos. In the Mindfulness & Stress Management program, guests will be encouraged to look inward to heighten self-awareness through meditation, Qigong, yoga and breathwork complemented by purification and cleansing rituals along with nutritional programs that will work to boost immunity and clarity. Wellness Immersion Manager David Melladew will oversee all programming at Amanyara. A licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, David brings his expertise in traditional Chinese medicine as well as martial arts and Qigong to Amanyara. David has also launched several of Aman’s wellness immersions programs in Asia and Europe and his keen interest in Asian philosophies and love for the medicine’s blend of science, artistry, meditation and need for self-cultivation provide the foundation for the in-depth, results-oriented programming at the resort.
