Respectful treatment of nature and people, natural resources and unconditional quality standards are essential criteria for many travellers when choosing exclusive wellness offers.
Sustainable luxury in a tropical paradise
The luxury resort of Tongsai Bay is nestled in the pristine, paradisiacal surroundings of a private bay. A beautiful place where people and animals alike feel at home. Guests of Tongsai Bay will find plenty of feel-good moments. Whether in the exclusive suites and cottages, all with a free-standing bathtub on the balcony or terrace, on the hotel’s dream beach, in the restaurant or the spa – natural and sustainable luxury forms the framework for very special experiences.
The resort offers many therapeutic, healing and restorative treatments in the Prana Spa and the private spa cottages. The deep knowledge of the local plant world’s natural healing and nurturing power has been passed down through generations at Tongsai Bay. The private spa cottages are equipped with two massage beds, two treatment beds for Thai and other massage styles, two armchairs for foot treatments, a herbal steam bath and an open-air bathtub for flower or milk baths.
Indulgence and relaxation in a Villa Wonderland
The Keemala is the first Green Sign certified hotel in Thailand. With its 38 villas and cottages, the resort is set amidst the rainforests of Kamala on Phuket and embodies the perfect blend of Thai tradition, modern design, and sustainability. Founders Samornpun and Tanapong Somnam have carefully built the resort into the landscape, with the priority of ecosystem protection.
Keemala celebrates the culture of four mystical Phuket tribes, the ‘Pa-ta-pea’ (earth), the ‘Khon-Jorn’ (wanderer), the ‘We-ha’ (sky) and the ‘Sprout-Nok’ (nest). The eco-luxury resort harnesses the methods of their lifestyles and applies them to the guests’ holiday experience, including in the spa programmes and wellness treatments at the Mala Spa.
Both Tongsai Bay and Keemala were named the best eco-friendly hotels in Thailand by The Hotel Journal magazine in March 2021.
Wellness in well-being Cubes
An experience between nature and architecture, where a man plays the main role, is what Hofgut Hafnerleiten offers. Nature as a holiday for the soul is the motto of a wellness stay at the Lower Bavarian oasis of tranquillity near Passau, which focuses entirely on individuality and holistic living. The electrosmog-reduced Hofgut with its eleven individual houses, spread across the estate by the lake, in the garden or on the edge of the forest, offers plenty of privacy.
Even the high-quality, Mediterranean-influenced dinner is served in the private accommodation on request. Many of the ingredients for the exclusive menus come from the local garden. Natural ingredients also determine the range of wellness treatments, such as the exfoliating treatments with sea salt or coffee, the ‘Hot Stone’ or the ‘Männer-mobil’ (in English: Men’s Mobility) massages.
Guests can relax in the Finnish sauna by the lake, on the raft in the bathing pond or the Relaxation Cube. On the warm stone loungers of the Coloured Light Cube, they can warm up before a massage or rest after the treatment.
Cubes are also a central element in the individual relaxation experience of the guests at the Strandhaus Boutique Resort & Spa Spreewald. The modern and comfortably designed Relaxation Cubes in the garden offer a retreat for two best girlfriends or the whole family. Furthermore, the spa area of the beach house includes two panoramic saunas, a massage shower and an enticing menu of cosmetic and body treatments like a herbal whey bath, a full-body lavender pack or the Spreewald Herbal Stamping massage.
With its green wellness oasis, the Strandhaus Boutique Resort & Spa is a small, exclusive world of its own, in the middle of the UNESCO Spreewald Biosphere Reserve. You have a magnificent view of the garden and the Spree from the room balconies and the terrace and the restaurant area. As part of this protected environment, the commitment to ecological sustainability is particularly important to the hosts.
A very young pearl among the sustainable wellness hotels is the Maslina. ‘Mindful Luxury’ is the resort’s philosophy, which is located on the coast of Maslinica Bay. With its 53 rooms, the boutique hotel offers its guests 5–star comfort, including the Mediterranean Pharomatiq Spa area.
The therapists at the Pharomatiq Spa use various healing methods, including traditional massage techniques, sound therapy, vibrational healing, herbal tonics and essential oils. The majority of the herbs and oils used in the spa and the rooms come from the spa’s organic garden. An integral part of the wellness offered is the mindfulness courses, including various yoga, meditation, and fitness.
