HOLISTIC WELLNESS IN SANTA FE

Help your clients renew mind, body and spirit at Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado – a destination well known for its focus on spirituality and healing. The Resort recently introduced a new holistic approach to wellness, championing a range of invigorating and restorative experiences.

Four Seasons offers a 57-acre (23-hectare) sanctuary for active leisure and complete pampering – just 10 minutes from downtown Santa Fe. Under skies that are sunny more than 300 days per year, your clients can enjoy outdoor year-round pursuits from hiking to mountain biking. There’s rejuvenation at the 10,000 square-foot (929-square-metre) Spa, and contemporary Southwestern cuisine at Terra, helmed by Executive Chef Kai Autenrieth.

The newest experiences and amenities are designed to enrich your clients’ stay, leveraging Santa Fe’s natural healing traditions and the Resort’s unique location on a spiritual vortex.

  • Join The EQUUS Experience®, an innovative self-mastery program co-facilitated by horses. Throughout human history, no other animal has captured the imagination quite like the horse, and there is much to learn from horse behaviour and herd dynamics. This program is an exciting opportunity for guests to take personal enrichment and healing to the next level, engaging with horses to inspire lasting change and breakthrough learning. It’s an experience that’s both joyful and memorable.
  • For powerful body rejuvenation – either in room, outdoors or at the Spa – guests can indulge in regionally inspired body work, spa treatments and massages. Suggest they take the pampering one step further with the addition of a spiritual enhancement. As an add-on to any spa treatment, the energy-fueled Smudging Ceremony allows guests to set an intention for the coming day and clear body and mind of any negative energy.
  • Offering a new space to re-align the spirit, a new luxury teepee and deck has been built upon the property’s spiritual vortex. It’s the perfect place to enjoy spa treatments, take a healing sunrise yoga session, or meditate while breathing in the scent of lavender that grows across the property. It’s also a magnificent spot for wedding ceremonies!

MANGROVES & EAGLES SAFARI IN LANGKAWI

Send your clients on the adventure of a lifetime in a UNESCO wonderland, nestled right beside Four Seasons Resort Langkawi.

Fully refurbished as of October 2017, the Resort lies within 19 hectares (48 acres) of landscaped gardens, flanked by 1.6 kilometres (one mile) of one of Asia’s finest beaches. This is the only property in Malaysia to make the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler UK - 2017 Global 100 List.

Providing an unforgettable outing, the Resort’s exclusive Mangroves & Eagles Safari takes guests into the spellbinding Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, a 550-million-year-old maze of limestone cliffs and tangled mangroves.

Intriguing and effortless, this family-friendly adventure is led by one of the Resort’s three Resident Naturalists. A 15-minute boat ride conveys guests from our beach to the impressive mouth of the Kilim River, beyond which lies one of the world’s most accessible mangrove forests. This fascinating ecosystem offers exciting up-close encounters with majestic eagles and kites, mischievous macaques, fish that walk (mudskippers), colourful tree-climbing crabs, shy otters, elegant monitor lizards, coiled snakes and hundreds of sleeping bats.

The entire experience is conducted from the comfort – and safety – of the Resort’s boat, letting guests enjoy a nature experience straight out of National Geographic, complete with Four Seasons-style service and refreshments.

Follow up the safari with a visit to our award-winning Geo Spa, which focuses on capturing the energies of the UNESCO Geopark. Six “floating” spa pavilions are backed by towering limestone cliffs. Each pavilion is completely private with its own individual steam room and rainforest shower, as well as an individual relaxing hut that allow guests to unwind further after the treatment.

Intent on restoring wholeness and connection, the Geo Spa has recently introduced a Guide to Harmony, an energy-assessment experience to help guests identify the lifestyle changes needed to achieve optimum wellness. Guests can take control of their wellbeing through a simple-to-follow approach that they can begin at the Resort and continue back home.

Your clients’ trip to Langkawi is also a chance to discover the Resort’s bold new look, after recent renovations have created a whole new level of modern luxury and indulgence.

The transformation sees the signature colour scheme changed from earth tones to a palette of bold and vibrant blues – adding further drama and excitement to the backdrop of beaches, rainforest and cliffs. Enhancements encompass all 19 Beach Villas and 68 Pavilions, the swimming pools and the three restaurants.

SIBERIAN-INSPIRED SPA TREATMENTS IN MOSCOW

Only at Four Seasons Hotel Moscow can your clients experience distinctively Russian body care treatments and rituals, based on extracts of wild Siberian herbs. This is a true “wow experience” even for local residents – and it’s a remarkable opportunity for guests visiting from abroad. No other hotel in Moscow offers anything similar.

The collection of luxurious banya rituals includes four options for adults (120 minutes each) and one for children (45 minutes). Benefits including anti-aging, detox and drainage, and slimming and lifting. Treatments use both a bath experience and a steam sauna.

The Siberian inspiration starts in the Spa’s reception hall, where guests are met with an exciting and calming aroma featuring notes of Siberian cedar and sandalwood, designed by the perfumers of Natura Siberica exclusively for Four Seasons Hotel Moscow.

The largest spa in Moscow, Amnis Spa measures nearly 3,000 square metres (28,000 square feet), including 14 treatment rooms, a sun-lit lap pool, hair salon, nail bar and 24-hour Fitness Centre.
