Four Seasons Resort Sayan in Bali is gearing up for the big reveal of its year-round wellness retreat, which is launching this March.
The ‘Guided by Gratitude’ retreat has been strongly influenced by Ubud’s unique healing energy and the Balinese daily rituals of thanks. Upon its launch, guests will be able to check-in on any day of the year to embark on a spiritual journey of wellbeing.
Regional spa director – Bali, Langkawi and Maldives, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Luisa Anderson commented: “Ubud’s special energy has been drawing spiritual seekers and wellbeing devotees for decades. It’s Bali’s ‘retreat centre’, but so often these retreats are designed around the seasons or personalities hosting them.
“We believe there shouldn’t be a time frame or time limit for embarking on a wellbeing journey. So we were inspired to design a three-night retreat that could be commenced at any point – and extended and tailored to suit every individual.”
‘Guided by Gratitude’ has been designed by resident wellness mentor, Ibu Fera – a former Buddhist nun – and new spa and wellness manager, Faraaz Tanveer, who is a yoga, Reiki and meditation master.
The programme entails a number of meditation sessions (guided, candlelight Mala; kirtan chanting; walking meditation and more), yoga classes, a Balinese water blessing ritual, sound therapy with crystal singing bowls, a chakra rebalancing spa treatment and an exclusive Sacred Nap experience.
Fera declared: “It’s our heartfelt intention that guests immerse themselves in the deepest of rest; experience the silence within; listen to the wisdom of their hearts; and foster a deep loving connection with the self. The natural result is the release of fear and tension – and the opening of the heart – enabling them to return home with a renewed sense of being alive, filled with gratitude for the many blessings in life and fully open to new possibilities.”
Those participating in the retreat will have the option to observe silence throughout the programme.
