The Ranch Malibu to Debut First Permanent International Program

The Ranch has announced the launch of its first permanent international program at the Palazzo Fiuggi Wellness Medical Retreat. Beginning May 15, 2022, the new program combines The Ranch Malibu’s signature program with the services and expertise of the team at Palazzo Fiuggi for a transformational experience that provides a more complete picture of one’s overall health and longevity.

Located on an ancient hilltop in a private 20-acre park, just 50 minutes from Rome, Palazzo Fiuggi is set in a historic property, nestled in one of Italy’s naturalistic towns. Known for the healing powers of its water since the early 14th century, the region was often visited by royalty, popes and masters of the Renaissance, including Michelangelo, for its restorative qualities. This history of healing, paired with a modern medical facility and hiking trails, offers an ideal backdrop for The Ranch’s active health program.

Limited to just 25 guests each week, this seven-night program has a daily schedule that mirrors The Ranch Malibu’s signature no-options experience. Each day includes a four-hour morning mountain hike, nap time, afternoon strength and core training classes, yoga and daily massage complemented by a nutrient-rich, plant-based diet. Guests can also undergo diagnostic and blood testing along with a consultation with one of Palazzo Fiuggi’s physicians. This fusion of health programming leaves guests with a greater sense of self, feeling rested and rejuvenated, while having lost fat and inches and gaining muscle and mental clarity.

Similar to Malibu, hikes will be done for time rather than distance, with a varied trail each day. Guests will scale elevations over 2,000 meters as they hike the Apennine Mountains which surround the Lazio region in which Fiuggi is located. Afternoon fitness and restorative yoga classes are held in a private section of the Palazzo for The Ranch’s guests. The rigorous routine is complemented by a menu created by Palazzo Fiuggi’s three-star Michelin Chef Heinz Beck and prepared by his culinary team in accordance with The Ranch’s executive chef.

Guests will have access to the 4,300-square-foot fitness center, complete with Technogym, Pilates, Yoga equipment and Reaxing training equipment. They can also enjoy the property’s indoor and outdoor pools that feature views of Fiuggi “old town.” The spa forms a highlight of the experience, featuring a fountain connected directly to the “miraculous” fountain of Fiuggi waters. Treatments include hydrotherapy and thalassotherapy pools featuring the ancient healing waters of the area. Additional medical services and the Roman thermae can be experienced during the week for an additional rate.

The Ranch Italy at Palazzo Fiuggi rate includes seven nights and eight days of daily guided hikes, fitness and exercise classes, daily massage, diagnostic testing, blood panel, medical consultation, accommodation, all meals and some evening elective nutrition talks and a return airport transfer at the end of the program. Upgrades are available up to 60 days prior to arrival.
