Well, I have never been a fan of detoxing or suggesting detoxing without knowing a lot more about the history of my client. However if you are going to go on a detox, it’s a really good idea to go somewhere with beautiful views, peaceful scenery and the time to clear both your body and your mind.
One of the most impressive spas that is getting talked about is a spa in Bali which is set on a cliff top with stunning views. It is called Alila Villas in Uluwatu and they have just launched a new detox called Mehta Detox. This detox programme starts off with juices, raw salad, and allows you to take your pick from a vast array of holistic therapies.
You can pick from traditional therapies such as meditation or Ayurvedic massage or go for exercises that are gentle such as yoga and even explore things like Qi Gong and internal martial arts. If that’s not your scene, you can just chill out by your own private pool in this all villa resort. More details can be found on www.alilahotels.com.
However, as I don’t always suggest detoxing as the best form of spa, another alternative would be the Six Senses Spa at Kempinski Hotel Barbaros Bay in Bodrum, Turkey. This has an extremely picturesque view of the Aegean coast and offers a Life for Inner Peace programme.
These can be taken as a 3-day, 5-day or even 7-day holiday and they also offer holistic therapies in addition to indoor pool, sauna and steam room, and of course the famous Turkish baths. What is lovely about this spa is that you have the added bonus of reiki, hot stone massages, colour therapy, holistic massages, watsu water therapy, shiatsu, and foot acupressure. So if detoxing is not your thing but you would still like a getaway, visit www.kempinski.com for more details.
