For hundreds of years throughout Thailand, people would leave a jar of water outside their house to provide refreshment and to extend a welcome to the passing traveler. Anantara is taken from the Sanskrit word that means “without end,” symbolizing this sharing of water and the heartfelt hospitality that lies at the core of every Anantara experience.
Known for providing bespoke and inspirational experiences, Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas is launching Balance, an innovative new wellness concept. As we become more savvy about our health, there is a growing demand to seek professional guidance on how best to achieve the right balance in one’s life.
The Balance wellness concept offers total flexibility, with an inspirational variety of health, wellbeing, and healing elements that can be incorporated into your stay, along with the freedom to relax and/or indulge. Balance offers a wide range of different wellness elements, supported by expert guidance and personalized programs. For example, wellness cuisine offers delicious, nutritional options. Cooking classes with interesting themes, such as ”food as medicine” teach new skills to take back home. Fitness classes help to burn off excess weight, tone the body, and de-stress the mind, accompanied by energy enhancing holistic exercise. Those who are knew to holistic exercise may try yoga or tai chi, with the option of having a tailored package of classes created for them afterward.
There’s also a “Masters of Wellness” visiting practitioner calendar that offers holistic healing therapies by trusted experts. In line with Anantara’s philosophy of offering authentic indigenous experiences, a program of visiting Traditional Thai Medicine (TTM) practitioners is now available at four of Anantara’s signature properties: Anantara Chiang Mai Resort & Spa; Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in northern Thailand; Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa, and Anantara Phuket Village. TTM focuses on rebalancing each person’s natural composition of elements to prevent disease and promote health and rehabilitation through traditional Thai treatments and herbal medicines, as well as diet and exercise for the body and mind.
