From the 1st May to the 31st October 2016, Song Saa Private Island is offering five or seven night Refresh, Rejuvenate and Revive retreats to soothe the tiredest of minds, bodies and souls.
Each retreat is designed with a different outcome, with the refresh retreat focusing on mental clarity and detachment from stress, the rejuvenate retreat focusing on cleansing and empowering, and the revive retreat perfect for those wanting to restore their spiritual balance and acquire a set of tools to empower lasting change.
The announcement comes just a few months after data from Booking.com showed that 52% of global travelers indicate they’re likely to choose a hotel and destination based on its social or environmental impact, something that Song Saa has already proven to be an industry leader in.
The private island, just 35 minutes from Cambodia’s Sihanoukville, has been crafted into a luxurious five star resort with owners Rory and Melita Hunter meticulous in maintaining the natural assets that made the location so unique in the first place.
This commitment to having a positive impact on both people and the planet manifests itself in many ways, through the work of both the Song Saa conservation and community program, and includes:
- The creation and management of Cambodia’s first dedicated marine reserve.
- The initiation of Cambodia’s first island-based solid waste management programme.
- The support of local livelihoods, through the promotion of an organic agriculture scheme.
- The coordination of the largest health and education programme on any of the Kingdom’s islands.
- The initiation of projects addressing the local impacts of climate change.
But the launch of the Wellness Retreat not only gives guests a chance to unwind in luxury, while having a positive impact on the environment and local communities, but it also follows a growing trend that caters to the wants and needs of the biggest (and most powerful) generation in history – millennials.
Data from Goldman Sachs shows that millennials are dedicated to wellness, devoting time and money to exercising and eating right and having a healthy mind. And with the power that millennials bring comes other shifts. Recent surveys have also indicated that consumers are less worried about spending money on products and more concerned with using it to enhance their lives through experiences.
With more and more millennials searching for experiences like the Song Saa’s Wellness Retreat, to sate their desire for sustainable travel, wellness driven holidays and experience rich investments, we think many other brands will be following suit in 2016.
