Asia

The Asian wellness scene centres mainly on India and Thailand, both of which are home to a number of well-established retreats and resorts offering effective treatments in a warm and relaxing climate. Kerala, in southern India, is the home of Ayurveda, the ancient Hindu system of medicine based on the concept of balance throughout the mind and body. High in the Himalayas, combine this with fresh mountain air and cultural immersion for an even more spiritual experience. Thai resorts tend towards a more western approach to detox, weight loss and fitness but with the added bonus of sublime Southeast Asian food (whether raw vegan, juiced or cooked and spicy) coupled with plenty of yoga and Pilates. Simply arriving in the Zen-like aura of Ubud (in Bali, Indonesia) puts you in a more mindful frame of mind and the traditional, family-based culture will help restore some emotional balance before you have time to say ‘namaste’.

Shreya's, India

Swimming pool with chairs at Shreya's, India

It’s hard to believe Shreya’s has only eight rooms given the size of the grounds in which it sits. Yoga and meditation are the main activities here and that suits its mainly young and hardworking, guests down to the ground. A brand new Ayurvedic spa opens late 2016.
