Reset and rejuvenate with the series of Group and Executive Retreats recently introduced to Ubud’s Fivelements Retreat. The Balinese wellness sanctuary, nestled in the jungle alongside the flowing Ayung River, has long been lauded for its transformative programmes and ample amenities, so much so that it was named by the 2020 Haute Grandeur Global Excellence Awards as Best Romantic Hotel on a Global level, Best Boutique Hotel in Indonesia, and in 2021 named a Royal Winner & World-Class Retreat by Muse Hotel Awards and most recently included in the Top 10 Hotels in Bali by The Times in October 2021.
Now Fivelements Retreat reputation is only set to grow courtesy of the arrival of its latest transformative programmes, available for both individuals and groups. Thanks to the recent expansion and upgrades of the resort space with the introduction of Hillside Pool suites, the Ubud local is now able to welcome an increased number of guests to its regular gatherings, which promise a place to unwind and escape the daily grind.
The focus of each Group Retreat will rotate monthly, commencing the first Monday of every month and running the week through. Entwined in traditional Balinese holistic philosophies, there are three signature retreats to choose from, ranging from a physical to a spiritual awakening. Guests can choose to focus on their physical prowess with the Health and Fitness Retreat, integrating morning yoga and strength exercises aplenty. Or the purification of the soul offered by the Spiritual Healing programme, a retreat integrating meditation, mindfulness, daily yoga and a visit to the Holy Spring water in an effort to refresh
body and mind. Not forgetting the chance to learn to prepare speciality plant-based cuisine with the Culinary Detox Retreat, among more.
Group Retreats will launch in May 2022, joining the already welcomed Executive Performance Retreats, a transformative program born specifically to cater to corporate entities. Attendees to the Executive Retreats are given an opportunity to learn new skills to use in both the boardroom and beyond as a part of a 3 or 4-day program. Sharpen your skills when it comes to focusing, resilience and awareness, as well as strengthening existing bonds of teamwork among your colleagues.
The Executive Performance Retreats interweave the core values of Fivelements with the local traditions of Bali across its program. Attendees will be able to enjoy the famed Mount Batur sunrise hike, a Pranayama breath work session, a sound bath the session, two tension and trauma release sessions, and a Balinese Agni Hotra Fire Ceremony among other equal health focused elements.
Fivelements Retreat Bali General Manager John T G Nielsen says of both the Group and Executive Retreats; “With thea ddition of the Hillside pool suites that feature super K ing and twin beds options, a natural evolution was to expand the original bespoke private retreats and offer new boutique group focused retreats that utilise the new event space Mandala Ayung, but still maintain the private feel of the retreat. We are able to offer to the corporate market Executive Performance retreats and monthly themed boutique retreats.
“These retreats continue to build on the bespoke private retreats that we have always been so well known for but offers now an opportunity for guests to experience a retreat with their friends or business colleagues and continue their journey of life transformation.”
