Vietnam’s InterContinental Danang to host series of wellness retreats
Vietnam five-star sanctuary - InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort - has revealed plans to host a new series of 'Energy Zen Retreats', rejuvenating activities curated to enhance guests’ mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
Staged once a month from July to December 2023, these full-day holistic retreats will be co-hosted by Alyona, the resort’s Wellness Manager, Bao, the Personal Gym Trainer, and Trung Dao, the Tai Chi Master, who will lead a series of activities across the resort’s four levels: Heaven, Sky, Earth and Sea.
The experience starts with a nutritious buffet breakfast at Citron, the elegant restaurant perched in the hills 100 metres above sea-level, before a 'Soaring Start' with personal introductions and healthy energy shots. Participants will enjoy a 'Heavenly Stroll' amongst the lush forest from Heaven to Sea, which is sure to improve mindfulness, before relaxing with an 'Insync Meditation Ritual' and 'Yoga Time', overlooking the ocean.
Relaxing at a villa at Earth level, guests will have the opportunity to rest and regroup with a healthy lunch, a swim in the private pool, breathing exercises and an invigorating ice bucket cooldown. “Me time” is an important part of the wellness journey and guests will have the chance to enjoy some personal space with a dip in the ocean or pool, or simply time to reflect and relax on the beach. Bao and Trung Dao will lead optional Les Mills Body Pump and Tai Chi sessions.
This immersive itinerary descends back to Sea level with a 'Yoga Stretch' session and 'Coconut Grove Zen' - a mindful meander through the resort’s coconut palms. Each person will be invited to write down three things that they are grateful for, to enhance mental and spiritual wellness, before Alyona turns up the music for a barefoot 'Sunset Beach Boogie'” on the sand.
Seif Hamdy, General Manager, InterContinental Danang notes “at InterContinental Danang, we always strive to help guests achieve complete relaxation and revitalisation, surrounded by nature. Our Energy Zen Retreats will let wellness-seekers travel through our resort, from Heaven to Sea, and enjoy a carefully curated programme that is sure to stimulate the body, mind and soul. We look forward to helping everyone achieve a sense of personal peace and harmony.”
The first Energy Zen Retreat will be staged on 2nd July with subsequent events on 6th August, 3rd September, 1st October, 5th November and 3rd December 2023.
