Sneak peek: Bali's latest luxury wellness retreat

Here, we preview the first in a new chain of luxury health and wellness resorts set to open in south Bali

Promising to set a new standard for wellness retreats in Asia, luxury resort REVIVO will be opening at the end of March on three hectares in the hills of Nusa Dua.


The concept of REVIVO, which means “I’ll live again”, is to soothe the spirit and rejuvenate the body through enriching the mind with a complete journey including relaxation activities, spa and holistic medicine treatments and a personalised nutritional program.



When it opens on March 30, the resort will offer 16 Balinese-style suites, including two four-bedroom villas that can be booked for more exclusive retreats, a restaurant, bar and poolside lounge, spa, hybrid fitness area and events space.


The resort is surrounded by teak forest, tropical rainforest and the Indian Ocean for the ultimate decompression from city life. It will offer bespoke programs based on each individual’s needs, with the goal of achieving holistic ‘healing’ through mind training and self-awareness, as opposed to treating specific illnesses or injuries.


“We are thrilled to be opening the first resort of REVIVO in Bali, to meet the increasing demand for rejuvenating, mindful travel,” said Gordon Oldham, Founder, REVIVO.


“We truly believe that the holistic wellness offering, led by a team of experts in their respective fields, will raise the bar for a new level of luxury retreat in Asia.


”While each retreat can be tailor-made to suit individual goals, there will be a regular schedule of immersive programs lead by experts in each area, which will range in duration from three to 14 days.”


This will include:

• Emotional balance and mind training

• Detox & organic weight loss

• Sleep well• Anti-ageing & longevity

• Destress & relax

• Mother-to-be



Fitness will be a key component of each retreat, which REVIVO will incorporate through a hybrid area located on 8,000-square-metres of verdant land towards the rear of the resort.


This area will contain a yoga barn, martial arts hall, reformer Pilates studio, gym with TRX, boxing and kinesis equipment, a 25-metre lap pool for aqua workouts and a 1,500-square-metre landscaped park for outdoor exercises.


The fitness offering will focus on hybrid workouts, with as much emphasis placed on inspiration as perspiration. There will be a balance between the more intensive HIIT sessions and gentler meditative and restorative practices like Qi Gong and meditation to simultaneously cultivate physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.


From group classes to private sessions or teacher trainings, the experience will be completely customisable to support unique fitness and wellness goals.


The food and beverage program will be equally important and will be comprised of a restaurant, bar and a pool side lounge, each of which will operate under the philosophy of serving fresh, wholesome, organic and balanced meals for guests.


Carefully designed by REVIVO's creative nutritionist chef, Aliwalu, the menus will offer a selection of healthy recipes made with seasonal ingredients that will be adapted to suit each guest’s nutritional needs.



The focus will be on high protein dishes, which have a balanced amount of healthy fats, are low in carbs and free from gluten – with a Balinese twist. Using the finest organic ingredients, REVIVO aims to support local farmers, sustainable agriculture and environmentally friendly products, with no additives, preservatives or refined or processed ingredients in any of the dishes.


The third component of REVIVO is the holistic spa, which will bring together authentic ancient Balinese healing traditions, aroma, hydro and chromo therapies and facilities to nurture the body and achieve overall wellbeing and balance.


The spa will stay true to the age-old tradition of using elements from the surrounding environments to heal – each therapeutic treatment, restorative massage and nurturing body and facial treatment will be customised by highly skilled therapists using herbal-infused oils, aromas and massage techniques.


The spa will be comprised of five double treatment rooms, each with their own outdoor bath, and will feature two hydro jet Vichy shower beds, hot and chill plunge pools, a Jacuzzi, infrared saunas, steam rooms, an aromatic garden and a salt water floating pool.


Bali will be the first location for REVIVO Wellness Resorts. It will soon be followed by REVIVO Wellness Cruise, Komodo Islands, in early 2019 and REVIVO Château de Fiac, France in mid 2019.
