Vietnam’s Alma Resort launches wellness retreats

HANOI, February 16, 2024

Alma, situated on Vietnam’s scenic Cam Ranh peninsula, has unveiled a series of wellness retreats featuring ‘singing bowl’ meditation, hot stone therapy, yoga and detox and slimming treatments.

The resort’s Le Spa, which has 13 treatment rooms on the beach front, has rolled out its ‘Le Spa Wellness Journey’, ‘Le Spa Half Day Retreat’ and ‘Detox and Slimming Program’ designed to inspire a healthier lifestyle.

The three-day programme at Le Spa Wellness Journey offers power yoga sessions, body exfoliation, back-stone treatment, ‘singing bowl’ meditation or yoga, a ‘detox and slimming treatment’ and foot stone therapy.

The Detox and Slimming Treatment is underpinned by a massage technique using a wooden Gua Sha instrument that is designed to improve microcirculation and lipolytic action. This helps release toxins and treat cellulite, a statement said.

The programme also includes Hatha yoga followed by energising intensive facial treatment and ‘Healing Hands’ therapy that focuses on acupressure points to release blockages and prompt healing.

The Le Spa Half Day Retreat and Detox and Slimming Program each start with yoga and meditation classes followed by a steam and sauna with fresh herbal aroma.

The half day retreat also features body exfoliation and ‘Le Spa Signature Treatment’ underscored by Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi, Shiatsu, and Thai stretching techniques that target pressure points and mirror the calming motion of gentle sea waves.

The Detox and Slimming Program is rounded off with a ‘fundamental treatment’, a facial treatment that is customised to the skin’s individual needs.

All three retreats are complemented with healthy drinks and post-treatment snacks.

Le Spa’s manager Hoang Nguyen Minh Anh said although the retreats only ranged from half a day to three days, they were designed to inspire guests to appreciate the importance of learning how to relax and calm the body and mind, as well as learn of ways to release muscle tension and ease toxin blockages, in the hope “we can influence their everyday life once they’re back to reality”.

“Each retreat makes for a unique wellness journey that starts out with yoga, that emphasises the importance of breathing and stretching, before deploying restorative treatments and ending with a healthy drink and snack,” she said.

“We think of each wellness retreat as a potent reminder of the need to learn how to relax, which can be very hard amid all sorts of demands including work, family, and life generally.”

lma features an array of food and beverage outlets and a cascade of 12 beachfront swimming pools. Other highlights include a 6,000 sqm water park, a science museum, 18-hole putting green, kids club, youth club, sports courts, cinema, amphitheatre, convention centre, gymnasium and yoga room.

The resort also runs complimentary guided garden tours of its nursery garden, herb garden and chicken farm to equip guests with handy tips on how to nurture their own veggie patch and look after chickens. – TradeArabia News Service
