Lipa City, Philippines
Ideal for: Getting back in touch with nature
A tropical oasis located less than two hours south from the country’s largest metropolitan centre, Manila, Lipa City is an ideal destination for business travellers who want to take time out between meetings. After exploring the city with a stay at the 5-star Pan Pacific Manila, travellers can reconnect with nature with a retreat in the lush, green surrounds of The Farm at San Benito, where a holistic healing centre and full-service spa is nestled deep in the rainforest. One of the most coveted eco-retreats in the world, this wellness centre offers a variety of personalised health programmes, treehouse-style accommodation and gourmet vegan cuisine, all amidst an immaculate landscape of dramatic mountains, leafy canopies and tranquil waters.
Ideal for: Indulging in the ultimate luxury escape
Known for its spectacular tropical forests, rugged volcanic plains and pristine, white-sand beaches, it is no small wonder why Bali is one of the most sought-after wellness destinations in the world. While this serene paradise can easily be explored in a matter of days, the roster of luxury retreats that await will make you want to stay for a lifetime. Treat yourself to the ultimate Balinese experience at Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali Resort. Perched on a sweeping coastal cliff edge well beyond the hustle and bustle of the island’s centre, this expansive, 250-acre estate is complete with an award-winning golf course, private Balinese villas, a state-of-the-art spa and breathtaking sunset views of the Indian Ocean and famous Tanah Lot Temple.
Ideal for: Centring the mind, body and spirit
Seemingly worlds away from India’s thriving, cosmopolitan capital of Delhi, Rishikesh is well worth the five-hour journey from the city. Nestled between the base of the Himalayas and the Ganges River, this serene township is known as the epicentre of Ayurveda, meditation and yoga in India, making it the perfect escape for travellers looking to restore their sense of spiritual harmony and balance. Delight in one of 80 body and beauty treatments at Ananda Spa before taking part in a master-led workshop on-site. Alternatively, venture further east along the riverbank to Swarg Ashram – a small community where complete spiritual seclusion can be divined in the absence of the vices of city life.
Ideal for: Unwinding in the wilderness

An outdoor playground for nature lovers all year round, Canada’s west offers travellers an idyllic opportunity to immerse themselves in the wild.

Equipped with an invigorating day spa, world-class dining and elegantly-appointed suites, our award-winning accommodation provides travellers with the perfect base to explore the rugged wilderness of the Rocky Mountains whilst still delighting in the luxury, style and sophistication of a 5-star resort.
Byron Bay, Australia
Ideal for: Replenishing and rejuvenating the body
Famous as one of Australia’s most sought-after surfing destinations, the beautiful seaside town of Byron Bay has just as much to offer travellers looking for a luxury escape.
