Our favourite rooms
Opt for a Lakeview Premier Suite for lashings of space and a lake-view balcony. All rooms have been designed with wellbeing in mind: the curved ceilings don’t have corners (bad for your chi, apparently); underneath each bed, hidden within the bed frame, there’s a healing crystal that has been blessed by a crystal master.
Dip into the pool in the Wellness Clinic, which you can use as part of their 60-minute hydrotherapy programme.
The world-class spa includes treatment rooms, an indoor pool, a steam room, sauna, an awesome hydrotherapy circuit, a gym, Pilates and yoga studio. Private fitness classes are available. The hotel also offers various yoga, meditation and sound-healing courses.
Bring a notebook and a pen to jot down good intentions and mantras – plus your favourite swimming costume and yoga gear.
Communal areas are wheelchair accessible, except for Thought For Food Market and Market Plaza.
Nature-loving Sangha by Octave has its own community farm, so the restaurant’s produce is organic, seasonal and grown onsite.
