Get pampered at Banyan Tree KL’s wellness retreat

Get the ultimate rest and relaxation at Banyan Tree KL’s Urban Wellness Sanctuary this weekend.

You don’t need me to remind you that our modern life is often hyper-stimulated and the speed of life is only accelerating every day. More often than not, our nervous systems cannot truly relax and hence, causes chronic stress and anxiety.

So, here’s a gentle reminder: it’s important to take time off to rediscover our inner-self and find peace within.

Known for its wellbeing retreats around the world, Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur’s Urban Wellness Sanctuary experience wants to inspire you to travel inwards and become more conscious of your daily actions, thoughts, and emotions amidst the hustle and bustle of a city.

For those who are wellbeing-curious, the Urban Wellbeing Sanctuary concept enables you to design and combine a leisure vacation with well-being elements in a flexible, and open way through a simple and structured, codified approach of 8 pillars: Sleep and Rest, Dietary Awareness, Bonding and Connection, Physical Vitality, Cultivate the Mind, Learning and Development, Harmony with Nature, and Sustained Practices.

You get to personalise your stay here with simple but impactful wellness activities throughout their stay such as: learning how to sleep better, breathing exercise, spinal stretch, couple’s cardio, core pilates by the pool and meditations — all guided by professionals. As with most modern dwellers, I have problems sleeping. A short consultation with the wellness practitioner later, I was advised to opt for the “sleep better” activity where I’d learn some simple breathing exercises and a number of ways to help me sleep better at a workshop.

Needless to say, I had a soundless sleep that night. Of course, the super comfy bed at the Signature Wellbeing Retreat room definitely helped too. In fact, the suite is specially designed for sleep enhancement, where there are nightly rest rituals provided like herbal face steam, cleansing scrub and is equipped with mindful tools like sound bowl and aromatherapy diffuser. Staying true to the wellness ethos, the standard mini bar is also replaced with healthier options like juice and protein snacks.
The Banyan Tree Wellness Sanctuary experience doesn’t just end after you check out from the hotel. Expect to head home with a wealth of knowledge and an exclusive care package that includes a guide on healthy living, home exercise and other recommended practices to try at home for sustained practise for your daily life.
