Mexico’s Chablé unveils healing heartache programming

Chablé wellness resorts in Mexico have launched a retreat for individuals recovering from the breakdown of a long-term relationship during the pandemic.

The retreat, You are the Love Story, features a number of elements which can be combined for a personalised journey.

It’s inspired by the ocean, to encourage guests to wash away the old and welcome the new, and signature treatments include the Sound of the Sea, a renewing seaweed wrap, exfoliation, sea fennel massage; and a water massage overlooking a traditional cenote to release blocked energy and promote relaxation.

Daily sunrise and sunset yoga focus on self-love, gratitude and positivity, while a temazcal ceremony is based on the notion of rebirth and transformation.

The spas at Chablé resorts are underpinned by Mayan rituals and two other new packages have been designed to boost immunity and reduce stress and anxiety. Industry consultants Bonnie Baker and Amy McDonald worked on the resort’s original wellness concepts.

• Where: Chablé Maroma and Chablé Yucatán, Mexico
• Length of programme: Varies according to elements chosen
• Cost: US$850 (€699, £630) a night

This is complemented by hot mineral water being drunk three times daily before meals and peloid wraps and massages.

Specialists at the spa claim the programme helps guests recover by positively contributing to functions that support immunity.

All journeys begin and end with a check-up to monitor progress, examining antibody and iron levels, along with a liver scan and lung function test.

• Where: Hotel Savoy Westend, Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic
• Length of programme: Minimum seven days
• Cost: €414 (US$502, £366) per day per person, excluding accommodation and food

Seven-step bathing ritual in Reykjavik

An Icelandic thermal spa, just minutes from downtown Reykjavik is set to debut in April 2021 with a seven-step Icelandic hydrothermal cycle.

Sky Lagoon will then encourage guests to reinvigorate their bodies by applying its signature Sky Body Scrub and visiting a steamroom.

To finish, visitors will shower off the scrub and return to the geothermal lagoon to relax.

The programme, which was co-created by industry consultant Nigel Franklyn, will feature daily consultations with an in-house ayurvedic doctor and nutritionist, as well as ayurvedic treatments.

Guests will also benefit from a facial therapy and two body treatments along with daily activities such as yoga, lectures, meditation and workshops to help build the foundations of a balanced lifestyle.
