  • A choice of one complimentary spa massage treatment.
  • Daily lectures and cooking demonstrations to highlight the benefits of healthy and balanced nutrition.
  • Gym sessions led by personal trainers using state-of-the-art Technogym fitness equipment.

The programme has been designed to accommodate guests of all ages and levels of fitness.

A dedicated team of wellness specialists will accompany guests on their journey. Fitness lifestyle expert Natasha Eksteen, yoga instructor Jenni Kauppila, and nutritionist Dalila Roglieri will be on hand to help.
