Setting a new standard for wellness retreats in Asia, luxury resort REVIVO officially opened on the 30th March on 3 hectares of lush land in Bali. Meaning “I’ll live again”, the concept of REVIVO is to soothe the spirit and rejuvenate the body through enriching the mind with a complete journey including relaxation activities, spa and holistic medicine treatments, and a personalised nutritional programme. The resort offers 16 Balinese-style suites, including two 4-bedroom villas that can be booked for more exclusive retreats, a restaurant, bar and pool side lounge, spa, hybrid fitness area and events space.
Located amidst the breezy hills of Nusa Dua in south Bali, REVIVO is surrounded by teak forest, dense tropical rainforest and the Indian ocean for the ultimate decompression from bustling city life. The resort offers bespoke programs based on each individual’s needs, with the goal of achieving holistic “healing” through mind training and self-awareness, as opposed to treating specific illness or injuries. While each retreat can be tailor-made to suit individual goals, there is a regular schedule of immersive programs lead by experts in each area, which range in duration from 3 to 14 days long. This includes:
• Emotional balance and mind training
• Detox & organic weight loss
• Sleep well
• Anti-ageing & longevity
• Destress & Relax
Fitness is a key component of each retreat, which REVIVO incorporates through a hybrid fitness area located on 8,000 square metres of verdant and peaceful land towards the rear of the resort. The area is comprised of a yoga barn, a martial arts hall, a reformer Pilates studio, a gym with TRX, boxing and kinesis equipment, a 25-metre-long lap pool for aqua workouts and a 1,500 square metre landscaped park for outdoor exercises. The fitness offering focuses on hybrid workouts, with as much emphasis placed on inspiration as perspiration. There is a balance between the more intensive Yang – with heart-pumping HIIT sessions, and the softer Yin – with yoga and other gentler meditative and restorative practices like Qi Gong and meditation to simultaneously cultivate physical, mental and spiritual well-being. From group classes to private sessions or teacher trainings, the experience is completely customizable to support unique fitness and wellness goals.
The food and beverage programme is equally important and is comprised of a restaurant, a Bar, and a pool side lounge, each of which operate under the philosophy of serving fresh, wholesome, organic and balanced meals for guests. Each venue serves food and drinks as close to their natural state as possible, with a mission to sharpen and delight taste buds, while continuously supporting health. Carefully designed by REVIVO creative nutritionist chef, Aliwalu, the menus offer a selection of healthy recipes made with seasonal ingredients that will be adapted to suit each guest’s nutritional needs. The focus is on high protein dishes, which have a balanced amount of healthy fats, are low in carbs and free from gluten – with a Balinese twist. Using the finest organic ingredients, REVIVO aims to support local farmers, sustainable agriculture and environmentally friendly products, with no additives, preservatives or refined or processed ingredients in any of the dishes.
The third component of REVIVO is the holistic spa, which brings together authentic ancient Balinese healing traditions, aroma, hydro and chromo therapies and facilities to nurture the body and achieve overall well-being and balance. The spa stays true to the age-old tradition of using elements from the surrounding environments to heal – each therapeutic treatment, restorative massage and nurturing body and facial treatment is customised by highly skilled therapists using herbal-infused oils, aromas and massage techniques. The spa is comprised of five double treatment rooms, each with their own outdoor bath, and features two hydro jet Vichy shower beds, hot and chill plunge pools, a Jacuzzi, infrared saunas, steam rooms, gorgeous changing rooms, an aromatic garden and a salt water floating pool set amidst tropical greenery.
“We are thrilled to be opening the first resort of REVIVO in Bali, to meet the increasing demand for rejuvenating, mindful travel. We truly believe that the holistic wellness offering, led by a team of experts in their respective fields, will raise the bar for a new level of luxury retreat in Asia,” said Gordon Oldham, Co-Founder, REVIVO.
Bali is the first location for REVIVO Wellness Resorts. It will soon be followed by REVIVO Wellness Cruise, Komodo Islands, in early 2019 and REVIVO Château de Fiac, France in mid 2019.
