Aman rolls out property-wide wellness programme

by Jane Kitchen | 13 May 2016

Aman is rolling out Aman Wellness, a new concept to be introduced across its 30 hotels across the world in 2016. The programme includes Individual Wellness Immersions as well as a series of Group Retreat Experiences headed by health specialists and held at different Aman locations.

Drawing on the ancient healing modalities, both the Individual Wellness Immersions and the Group Retreat Experiences seek to take guests through a process of renewal, designed to ground, purify and nourish.

“Wellness is not only related to the physical, but also to the strength of the connection between body and mind,” said Vladislav Doronin, chair of Aman. “Aman Wellness is designed to achieve a deep level of transformation from the outside in, and is inspired and enhanced by the natural and peaceful settings of our resorts. Aman Wellness is about change, and seeks to empower guests with the guidance and confidence needed to adopt an all-encompassing holistic lifestyle.”

The first Individual Wellness Immersions will launch at Amanpuri in Phuket, Thailand and Amanbagh in Rajasthan, India from 1 August 2016. An ongoing calendar of Group Retreat Experiences will take place throughout the year.

The new Individual Wellness Immersions are based on a personalised routine which includes daily spa treatments, a considered diet or cleanse, suggested exercise and expert advice.

Programmes range from three to 14 nights at Amanpuri and four to 21 nights at Amanbagh. Bespoke to each individual, Amanpuri will offer four different immersions to choose from, depending on participants’ desired results: fitness, weight loss, cleanse and awareness. Amanbagh will offer the chance to explore ayurveda in its homeland, with three different programmes based on India’s ancient healing system.

As well as initial assessments and regular consultations, each day of an Individual Wellness Immersion at Amanpuri is personalised to include two to three movement and specialist therapy sessions, a 60 or 90-minute spa treatment and group movement classes.

Meals are designed to reflect the nutritional needs of each guest, and aim to stabilise blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, balance gut flora and support the digestive system. Deep cleanses include a regular intake of herbal elixirs, fresh juices and alkalising broth.

Amanpuri’s Immersions are based on four different principles. They include the Fitness Immersion, designed by sports therapists and nutrition experts for those who want to improve their fitness levels, and incorporating a wide variety of movement workouts from Muay Thai boxing to beach boot camp classes, circuit training, Pilates and yoga.

The Weight Loss Immersion aims to remove the emotional barriers faced in managing and shifting weight; it includes water-based movement sessions to assist in the reduction of stress and inflammation in the body.

The Cleanse Immersion is for those who want to reduce stress levels and promote self-healing through a return to internal homeostasis, and the meditative Awareness Immersion is designed for those wishing to tap into their inner realm, heightening awareness and daily mindfulness.

Meditation, yoga and silent reflection combine with grounding modalities such as craniosacral therapy, reconnective healing and Reiki, to encourage inner stillness.

Drawing on the ancient healing system of India, Amanbagh’s four to 21-night Ayurvedic Immersions feature an in-house ayurvedic physician to oversee details.

Named after the Sanskrit word for ‘life’, the four-day Ayur Immersion programme serves as an introduction to the concepts of ayurveda with a complete treatment schedule and a dosha-specific ayurvedic nutritional plan.

The more in-depth Purify Immersion is designed to prevent illness and eliminate toxins for improved immunity, while the purifying Rejuvenate Immersion looks to improve memory, strengthen the ayurvedic sense organs (skin/eyes/tongue/nose) and boost physical endurance.

Options for cultural experiences include a sunset ‘cow dust’ tour of the villages near Amanbagh, while yoga and meditation will be offered daily in the resort’s magnificent gardens.

A calendar of devoted date-led retreats range from three to ten days in length. Each is unique, but all have been designed to help bring guests back to balance. The retreats bring together tai chi masters, spiritual mentors, sports scientists and nutritionists.

Each retreat integrates a mix of curated workshops, treatments, movement and body work, health-giving foods and cultural adventures that draw on authentic elements of each location, such as monastery visits or cooking classes.
