Alma Resort Launches Wellness Retreats

Alma, situated on Vietnam’s Cam Ranh peninsula, has unveiled a series of wellness retreats like singing bowl meditation, hot stone therapy, yoga and detox and slimming treatments.

The resort’s Le Spa, which has 13 treatment rooms on the beachfront, has rolled out its “Le Spa Wellness Journey," “Le Spa Half Day Retreat” and “Detox and Slimming Program” designed to inspire participants to kick-start a healthier lifestyle and lay the foundations for a longer life.

A three-day program, the Le Spa Wellness Journey’s first day starts with a 60-minute power yoga session, followed by a 30-minute body exfoliation and a 60-minute back-stone treatment. The second day comprises 60 minutes of singing bowl meditation or yoga, a 90-minute "Detox and Slimming Treatment" and 30 minutes of foot stone therapy. The "Detox and Slimming Treatment" is underpinned by a massage technique using a wooden Gua Sha instrument designed to improve microcirculation and lipolytic action, release the storage of toxins and tackle cellulite to help transform the upper and lower body. The final day of the three-day retreat begins with 60 minutes of Hatha yoga before a 90-minute energizing intensive facial treatment and 30 minutes of “Healing Hands” therapy that focuses on acupressure points to release blockages and prompt healing.

The “Le Spa Half Day Retreat” and “Detox and Slimming Program” each start with a private 60-minute yoga and meditation class followed by a steam and sauna with fresh herbal aroma. The half-day retreat also includes a 30-minute body exfoliation and a 90-minute “Le Spa Signature Treatment" underscored by Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi, Shiatsu, and Thai stretching techniques that target pressure points and mirror the calming motion of gentle sea waves.

Meanwhile, the "Detox and Slimming Program" is rounded out with the 90-minute "Detox and Slimming Treatment" and the 60-minute "Fundamental Treatment"; a facial treatment that is customized to the skin’s individual needs.

All three retreats are complemented with healthy drinks and post-treatment snacks.

Le Spa’s manager Hoang Nguyen Minh Anh said although the retreats only ranged from half a day to three days, they were designed to inspire guests to appreciate the importance of learning how to relax and calm the body and mind, as well as learn of ways to release muscle tension and ease toxin blockages, in the hope “we can influence their everyday life once they’re back to reality”.

The independently owned and operated Alma offers an array of food and beverage outlets and 12 beachfront swimming pools. Other highlights include a water park, science museum, 18-hole putting green, kids club, youth club, sports courts, a cinema, amphitheater, convention center, gymnasium and yoga room. The resort also runs complimentary guided garden tours of its nursery garden, herb garden and chicken farm.
