Connect, balance, rejuvenates and rebuild at a Wellness Retreat being held at Soneva Kiri, Thailand, from November 01 to December 07, 2015. The five, seven or nine-day Retreat is designed as the ideal antidote to a stressful and busy lifestyle, with wellness, absolute relaxation and regeneration as key objectives.
Guests at the retreat will enjoy a minimum of two private treatments with Jacqueline Bourbon, who was rated by Conde Nast Traveller Magazine as one of the top Healing Therapists in the world in 2014. The Retreat will also include additional spa and wellness activities, daily yoga and tai-chi classes, Ayurvedic consultations, and an organic cooking class.
A fully qualified Medium, Spiritual and Shamanic Healer and Teacher, Jacqueline performs treatments such private sittings, energy readings and healing, spiritual assessments and traditional Tibetan Sound Healing. By combining knowledge and philosophies from the East and West with her spiritual values, Jacqueline helps her clients realise their potential and lead more joyful and fulfilling lives. As a former business-woman and entrepreneur, she understands the stresses and strains faced in daily life and provides the tools to overcome not only work-related issues but also emotional and health problems.
Jacqueline’s healing works on many levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. She is able to detect unhealthy patterns, and will work with guests to tackle and resolve the underlying causes of their problems rather than just alleviating the symptoms. Her sessions incorporate energy work, meditation, counselling and healing to ultimately establish a new, healthier and more satisfying way of living.
“Soneva offers the perfect environment for a wellness retreat as we are passionate about the creation of enlightening wellness experiences for our guests. This is the perfect opportunity for people who have lost sight of themselves to take stock, rediscover their ‘self,’ remember their strengths and to re-focus,” Jacqueline commented.
“Our 360° approach to wellness spans every touch point of your stay with us; from the naturally beautiful and energetically powerful locations through to the food we serve and the experiences we offer. We employ Michelin starred chefs who use only fresh, organic and sustainable ingredients sourced from local suppliers to create delicious and healthy meals. All dietary requests are catered to, including raw food menus on request. We serve six different types of wellness water, which has been energised by the introduction of different minerals and crystals with therapeutic benefits. The excellent on-site Six Senses Spa offers blissful spa journeys that elevate and stimulate all the senses. Our aim is to provide all of our guests with a blueprint for a happier, healthier life,” she added.
Soneva Kiri is located on Thailand’s fourth largest but least populated island, Koh Kood; only one hour by private plane from Bangkok. The resort comprises 36 vast pool villas, ranging in size from one to six bedrooms, all of which are nestled amidst lush tropical rainforest with spectacular ocean views. Highlights of the resort include an open-air Cinema Paradiso, an observatory, a giant moulded bamboo playground for children shaped like a manta ray, and the spectacular treetop Dining Pod.
With an unrivalled combination of luxury, authentic Thai experiences, and mouth-watering organic food, Soneva Kiri encompasses barefoot Intelligent Luxury at its best. No news, no shoes, Thai style.
“One of our main aims at Soneva is for guests to leave feeling utterly revitalised and inspired and Jacqueline’s treatments can have a powerful and transformative effect,” concluded Sonu Shivdasani, founder, CEO and Chairman of Soneva.
The retreats are offered for a continuous stay of five days or more at Soneva Kiri between November 01 and December 07, 2015. For more information, visit www.soneva.com
