Raffles Hotels & Resorts has launched a new concept for immersive well-being – Retreat by Raffles will be available in select locations across the luxury brand, and will debut at Raffles Singapore and Raffles Bali.
Personalised and co-created with wellness partners and practitioners, each Retreat by Raffles is characterised by a distinctive weave of elements: spa treatments and rituals for rejuvenation, wellness cuisine with a nutritional focus, cultural or community connection and mindful movement in nature. All itineraries will be coordinated alongside the guest’s personal well-being butler, available 24 hours a day.
Emlyn Brown, global vice president of well-being at Accor, said: “Our new Retreat by Raffles is a holistic concept which combines active well-being, self-empowerment and connection with nature.
“Through curated programmes, which balance serenity, harmony, relaxation, recovery and pleasure, our inaugural retreats at Raffles Bali and Raffles Singapore will further elevate these properties as havens for well-being.”
Retreat by Raffles at Raffles Bali will comprise chakra balancing, sound bowl therapy, meditation in the secret cave, yoga and reiki healing offered by community experts. Throughout the stay, guests can choose from a range of activities including cooking classes or the preparation of traditional herbal medicine, Jamu, and even a cultural exploration to a Balinese house and spa treatments at the resort.
Guests will indulge in healthy cuisine featuring sustainably farmed produce, with a dedicated menu that introduces exotic dishes from all over South-east Asia.
For Raffles Singapore, butlers will organise well-being activities for guests, such as a sound healing experience at The Intan, a private Peranakan home museum, sunrise yoga on the rooftop, and guided walks within the Singapore Botanic Gardens with a local nature expert.
Guests can also enjoy unlimited access to the hydrothermal facilities at Raffles Spa including a vitality pool filled with mineral-rich Peruvian Pink Salt, a Herbal Sauna Room scented with a range of calming aromas and an Aromatherapy Steam Room that releases pure salt vapour. For dining, there nine different dining establishments at the hotel to choose from, where those with particular nutritional goals can have menus curated by the culinary team on request.
In addition, both hotels will offer in-room wellness amenities for guests to aid restful sleep, such as essential oil blends, diffusers, a well-being and mindfulness journal, mood audio and a crystal eye mask.
Retreat by Raffles will soon be introduced at other Raffles properties across the globe and further announcements will be made in the near future.
