We embrace those from all walks of life and welcome everyone, as we are passionate about the spirit of inclusivity.We ask that you be mindful of the space we have created, work with that vibration, be yourself and be in joy with what resonates, and be tolerant of that (and those) that does not.

We adopt the mantra of Ohana – we operate as a family, while everyone gets pushed to their own performance limits – no-one gets left behind. Ever.

Picture yourself training with the best and returning home full of raw vitality, glowing, lighter, brighter and fitter than you have felt and looked in years. Picture yourself exploring raw foods while staying in a wonderful villa in the sunshine of Portugal, safe in the knowledge that your fitness is in the hands of experts as they challenge you to move towards your own personal goals.

Rejuvenation often is defined as reversal of the ageing process. This contrasts with ‘life extension’ strategies that attempt to combat the causes of ageing in order to slow it down. Because rejuvenation is the reversal of ageing, the means employed to achieve it focus on repairing the damage caused by ageing and replacement of damaged tissue with new tissue.

While rejuvenation is one means to achieve extension of life, rejuvenation itself fundamentally affects a person by restoring aspects of youthfulness from the inside out. This program is designed to reverse biological ageing. It emphasise the quality of life instead of the mere prolongation of it. It is about enhancing your experience of life itself.

We offer a full spectrum of activities, therapies and retreat experiences for everyone. We believe that everyone is special, unique, and different in their own way. At Adiwana Resort Jembawan, you can customise your own retreat package based on your personal needs both as an individual or part of a group. Our goal is for you to return home feeling relaxed, refreshed and energised.
