Not all retreats are created equal at Pure Seven – the luxury wellness centre and spa at the heart of the five-star 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza. And that’s intentional, because no two retreats are ever alike, just as no two participants on a retreat are ever alike. Spa director Lucía Peris has designed a series of four wellness retreats tailored to resort guests; bespoke programmes that are completely customised to suit the individual. Whether you’re holidaying with family yet craving some me time, or travelling solo and looking to embark on a complete lifestyle change, Lucía and her team of health, fitness and wellbeing experts can create specific experiences to suit your needs.
Your home for the period of your retreat is a luxurious suite in the clifftop Cala Conta resort. Choose your preferred accommodation – one or two bedrooms with cliff, garden, pool or bay views are all on offer – and make yourself at home within the stylish surrounds. Open, spacious and decked out in raw natural finishes and in a chic Mediterranean colour palette, it’s a far cry from sharing a double room with a stranger, or sleeping in a yurt, as retreat accommodation is typically portrayed. 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza, and indeed these wellness retreats, are designed for a different type of traveller – those seeking complete luxury, privacy, discretion and comfort. Here, you will feel at home with all the benefits and facilities associated with five-star travel
All retreats start with a personal consultation prior to arrival, followed by another on check-in to allow Lucía and her team devise exactly the right programme for you. All retreat guests have daily teas and juices designed specifically to suit them, plus healthy cuisine co-created by 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza executive chef Bijendra Yadav and Lucía, with the understanding that nourishing oneself must continue outside of the actual spa experience in order to be effective. The first retreat option is based around the concept of de-stressing and pressing the reset button on life.
The Wellness Detox Program can be taken as a two-day programme – ideal for those with a busy lifestyle looking for a weekend away, or alternatively, as a way to ease into your holiday experience and pave the way for further relaxation – or as a six-day experience. The package includes lifestyle coaching, guided mindfulness and fitness activities, spa treatments and rituals for the body and face – working with aromatherapy, hot stones and organic products to offer a deep sense of relaxation and restoration.
The next alternative is the Rebalance Program – a two or six-day experience designed to restore balance between the mind and body. After your consultations, you’ll be treated to Ayurvedic spa treatments, an oxygen bar session, acupuncture, Thai massage, guided mindfulness and fitness activities and more – fusing Eastern wellness philosophies with the contemporary ethos of the spa itself allows you to connect deeply into yourself while still feeling in complete luxury at all times.
For some people, retreats are not all about kicking back and relaxing and with this in mind, the Get Fit Program has been created for those looking for a kickstart with getting their bodies back on track. It may be after an indulgent holiday, before preparing to re-enter reality or vice versa – a six-day body boost before continuing on with your Ibiza beach holiday. Fitness, strength and flexibility sessions are balanced with regenerative massages and oxygen bar sessions – ensuring you don’t burn out or overdo it. On completion of your personalised retreat, your trainer will help devise a workout plan for you to take home so you can retain your new sense of wellbeing.
Last, but absolutely not least, is the Weight-Loss Program – an experience that has been created with much thought and attention to detail, allowing participants to reach their goal weight in a healthy way, balancing nutrition, training and relaxation. For many people, adopting a new diet, exercise regime or lifestyle can be difficult among the day to day pressures of daily life, so taking six days to focus purely on yourself at 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza can be the inspiration you need to get started. Expect fitness and nutritional coaching sessions, daily personal training, oxygen bar sessions, luxurious spa rituals, the signature Pure Seven massage and more, plus you’ll receive a personalised training and nutrition program to take home and continue achieving results.
Waking up in the stunning surrounds of 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza daily will have you bounding out of bed; being nurtured by the team of experts will have you feeling supported like never before, while the results you’ll achieve are all down to your own hard work and dedication. As you check-out of the resort (or get ready stay on for some more downtime), the feeling of achievement is one you should hold onto – your very own luxury solo retreat done and dusted – now you’re ready to take on the world. Editor’s note: 7Pines Kempinski Ibiza closes temporarily for winter on November 19, 2018 and re-opens in March 2018.
