Your only job is to get on a plane here and enjoy it.

Luxury Venice Yoga, Culture & Creativity Retreat, Italy

luxury yoga retreat Venice

Come away with us for a week in the magical part of Italy known as Venezia! Venice is a place unlike any other in the world, and to see it is to transport yourself back to the days of Casanova, masked balls, and Carnevale.

Oh, but there is so much more to Venice than what the usual tourist visit can offer. Our yoga retreat will allow for a deeper knowledge of Venice, its canals, and neighboring islands. We’re so excited to offer this retreat during a unique time to visit this amazing city – as it’s out of the main tourist season so you can get a deeper view into the local life.

This is one of our continued collaborations with Julian Hyzler from EASEL&LENS to combine a look at creative focus with art projects in sketching and “ifonography” (smartphone photography) throughout the week.

Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the calm in the magic that is Venice – and then these art projects will help us find news ways of seeing – both yoga and art working together to find focus in the many layers of history, water, and beauty of the Venetian landscape.

You will get to experience all the major forms of water transportation that the city offers, and there’s also plenty of time to explore on your own as well.

All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, non-intimidating and personal experience.

2 night Wellness & Spa Package, Le Monge Hotel Paris

As the former home of a family who once played a significant part in the artistic community of the Left Bank, the Hotel Monge, in the heart of the 5th arrondissement of Paris, has always been an address of prestige and significance in the Latin Quarter.

This charming 4-star hotel reopened in 2016 following a complete renovation. The new décor of the establishment and its 30 bedrooms is largely inspired by the district in which it stands; a district that evolved in close harmony with the world of books.

So, naturally, the design of the décor offers numerous nods to the literary Paris of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the neighbouring University of Paris, known as the Sorbonne, as well as lithographs and souvenirs of journeys emblazoned with poetry and honouring the flora and fauna of the nearby Jardin des Plantes.

The interior design, created by Marie-Agnès Louboutin and Patrice Henry, has been modernised while still preserving the considerable charm of the bourgeois houses of the 19th century. Here you will find interlocking salons, mouldings, Hungarian point parquet flooring, fireplaces of Carrara marble, exquisite furniture and tropical themed wallpapers from the Maison Deyrolle.

You will wake up each morning to the blissful sounds of the wildlife and water from the stream, waterfalls and fountains of the retreat’s Oriental gardens, rather than an alarm clock to get your body in natural harmony with natures rhythms. And you will leave the retreat feeling rested and re-nourished on every level. Read reviews.

The Scarlet offers you serenity, a chance to escape from life’s fast pace, slow down and truly enjoy nature, great food and a warm welcome. With its luxury tented treatment rooms lit by lanterns and its far-reaching views over Mawgan Porth Beach to the wild Atlantic beyond, the Scarlet Spa is essentially a quiet, contemplative, almost spiritual place.

The focus of their spa is on your holistic wellbeing and the nourishment of your mind, body and soul, drawing on the wisdom of Ayurveda and a distinctive Cornish twist. You might want to slather yourself in rich mineral mud in our rhassoul, experience a traditional bathing ritual in the hammam, or try your hand at massage guided by one of our therapists. Outside, a cliff top hot tub invites you to stargaze or storm watch, and our natural chemical-free pool, cleaned by reeds, beckons you into the water. Read reviews.

Eiffel Blomet Paris

Discover the best roof top in Paris that you can have from your room at the Eiffel Blomet spa hotel. It seems big enough for at least 50 people but also discreet enough for one or two should you prefer a more intimate sun setting experience with fantastic city views.

We like to share our top secret spa hotels with you, as you are not likely to come across the hotel simply by walking past it. You will find it in the vibrant 15th district, only a 15-20 minutes walk to the Eiffel tower but away from the maddening crowds and tourists. Striking the balance between business and leisure is quite an art form and the Eiffel Blomet does a good job to please the two types of clientele.

With the wellness traveller in mind, in the basement you will find the swimming pool, gym, sauna and hammam. Make sure you book one of the gorgeous junior suites located on the 5th floor during the summer months when you could spend the whole day admiring the views and topping up your tan (after your fitness work-out and swim of course). Read reviews.

Finally, a brand new spanking five star spa hotel that is completely dedicated to fitness and wellbeing without compromising on luxury and style. Located at the heart of the 9th district of Paris, between Montmartre and Pigalle, the Parister opened its doors in September 2017.

Expect beautifully designed rooms, a huge king size bed with velvet pink and blue cushions, Nespresso coffee machine, Marshall bluetooth speaker, and heated mirrors and environmentally conscious products from Zenology in the aquamarine coloured bathroom.

In the basement of the hotel there is a proper gym and swimming pool, in collaboration with CYD (conquer your day) you choose from a daily schedule of fitness, yoga and bootcamp classes starting from 7am and taught in small groups.

For a post work-out treat, luckily there’s the spa to relax in and have a stress busting massage, choose from the signature Parister – an awakening of a psychocorporeal consciousness, deep tissue, ayurvedic or shiatsu. We personally recommend the tried and tested ayurvedic massage to help calm the mind as well as nourish the body. Read reviews.

Les Bains Paris

The lovingly renovated building and interior design (courtesy of local interior architecture firm, RDAI and designer Tristan Auer), really have that extra wow factor.

Square Louvois Paris

Located in the heart of the 2nd arrondissement just steps from he former Bibliothèque Nationale de Richelieu and facing one of the most charming squares in all of Paris, the Square Louvois is a modern, elegant and charming hotel. The rich petrol blue, and metallic copper colouring palette that is prominent throughout feels chic and stylish. The designer Leslie Gauthier has managed to blend luxury with its authentic 19th century Haussmannian features very well.

It’s a good sign when you see guests relaxing in the lounge area looking right at home, especially when they are serving complimentary afternoon tea. It’s clear from the clientele that all types are welcome – business, families, couples, and individuals.

It’s a dog friendly hotel too if you are travelling with your most trusted companion with you.
