Beyond Wellness introduces its first all-female retreat in the Maldives

With an aim to help women achieve all their health goals while navigating tough times, this wellness retreat in the Maldives promises five days of immersive activities, such as yoga, meditation, sound healing, energy balancing, snorkelling and more.

Wellness travel is set to become a top travel trend in 2021 – a natural progression considering the pent-up desire to explore the world and the tumultuous 2020 everyone has had. Beyond Wellness is leading the way with a unique wellness programme in one of the world’s most exotic destinations. Set in the Maldives, this five-day retreat is geared towards women only, offering a 360-degree solution to help them achieve balance in mind, body and spirit.

Taking place from February 23 to 27, this exclusive programme is set within the stunning surrounds of the award-winning Vilamendhoo Resort & Spa, situated in the South Ari Atoll. Participants will have the opportunity to reconnect with their body by following a carefully curated itinerary that includes yoga sessions, massages, mindfulness sessions, meditation, sound healing, energy balancing and breathwork. Meals will take holistic nutrition into account with a delicious detox programme designed to restore the body’s natural vitality.

The retreat will be hosted by clinical hypnotherapist Rachel Dowes and life coach Sophia Bakkal, who will lead participants through transformative life coaching, hypnotherapy and mind-body workshops, as well as personalised one-to-one coaching, energy healing and hypnotherapy.

This four-night, five-day retreat includes a full-board detox meal plan with three meals a day, detox juices and a host of activities including snorkelling, sunset boat cruises, dolphin spotting, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and more.
