“One day can change your whole life.” That’s the motto of Belgin Aksoy Berkin, the founder of Global Wellness Day, who aims to create a physically, mentally and spiritually better world for years to come.
As wellness buffs seek delightful options to celebrate Global Wellness Day on June 9, Luxury Travel Advisor shares insights about some hotels that have planned curated programs to mark the seventh anniversary of the social project dedicated to living well.
Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve
An intimate luxury hotel of only 60 villas and suites in Ubud, Bali, Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is welcoming back the Master Healer series—a curated program for wellness seekers in the heart of the island—for 2018.
The Mandapa Spa, surrounded by lush jungles and rice paddies below, is an ideal retreat for the signature series, which allows guests to embark on their personal health journey and discover their inner psyche while enjoying breathtaking views. Inspired by local Balinese architecture, the spa has been built with indigenous materials, such as teak, bamboo, thatch and volcanic basalts that blend with the natural surroundings.
The series will commence with Master Healer Véronique Ficheux on June 1, 2018, and continue through the end of the month.
Véronique will create personalized programs for guests, helping them discover peace of mind and body through her unique healing approach, which integrates Neuro Linguistic Programing, Neuro Associative Conditioning, Emotional Freedom Technique, Matrix Reimprinting and Theta Healing.
