The iconic rainforest resort, The Datai Langkawi, will welcome an array of leading practitioners from the fields of sound healing, nutrition, and acupuncture to help guests embrace natural holistic well-being for the 2024 Edition of Serenity.
Malaysia’s iconic rainforest resort, The Datai Langkawi, is starting the new year with holistic well-being in mind by announcing the outstanding curated collective of renowned holistic practitioners that will be a part of its 2024 edition of Serenity – The Datai Well-Being Series.
The resort will host six wellness residencies annually, offering guests consultations, one-to-one sessions, group workshops, and more.
Celebrating the best well-being expertise from across the globe, each visiting practitioner was selected for their extensive knowledge, experience, and dedication to holistic approaches.
From sound healing, meditation, and yoga to acupuncture, podiatry, and chiropractic therapies, guests can address and focus on a range of wellness desires.
Three of the practitioners are returning from the inaugural series – their services and treatments were so popular and resonated with the resort’s guests so profoundly that the decision was made to offer these sessions once more in the rainforest embrace of the Datai Bay.
Launched to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Datai Langkawi, which took place in 2023, Serenity – The Datai Well-Being Series reinforces the rainforest resort’s commitment to providing guests with exceptional, world-class experiences and sustainable immersion in the unique natural world of Langkawi.
The six visiting holistic wellness practitioners for 2024 are:
- Dr Rafael Bagheri, Chiropractor, 6-12 February 2024
- Bastien Gonzalez, Podiatrist, 23-30 April 2024
- Dr Lim Xiang Jun, Specialist in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncturist, 14-22 June 2024
- Savy Ho, Certified Sound Healer, Yoga, and Meditation practitioner, 19-27 August 2024
- Hannah Prescott, Nutritionist and Fitness Instructor, 12-27 October 2024
- Roxanne De Guzman, Fitness Professional and Yoga Instructor, 21 December 2024 – 3 January 2025
Stephane Duvacher, General Manager, The Datai Langkawi, said, “There’s an ever-growing desire for wellness to be the focus of, or incorporated into, travel experiences, helping travellers make the most of their time away and truly focus on their well-being.
Whilst there has been a significant increase in wellness technology advancements, there continues to be overwhelming support and interest in the healing power of nature, as well as holistic therapies.”
“Sustainable natural luxury has always been at the heart of The Datai Langkawi, and the natural world is at the centre of all our well-being offerings.
Our resort is immersed in a 10-million-year-old rainforest and overlooks one of the most beautiful beaches, making it the ideal place to reset and rejuvenate in nature’s healing terrains.”
Louise Ward, Director of Spa and Wellness at The Datai Langkawi, added, “We’re delighted to be bringing the second edition of Serenity – The Datai Well-Being Series to our guests and to welcome back Dr Rafael Bagheri, Bastien Gonzalez and Roxanne De Guzman, as well as meet our selection of new visiting consultants.
Through this diverse series, we want to help guests explore authentic, natural, holistic wellness experiences that stay with them long beyond their stay with us and help shape their view on the world, themselves, and nature.”
Having won accolades such as ‘Sustainable Spa of the Year’ at the World Spa & Wellness Awards, The Spa at The Datai Langkawi seeks to immerse guests in the beauty and sensory journeys that nature provides to support overall well-being.
Treatments focus on Ramuan-based therapies, a traditional Malay healing practice that sustainably harnesses local ingredients from the rainforest, mangroves, and sea. Dating back several millennia, Ramuan is uniquely Malaysian and draws upon the health benefits of the natural world, as well as indigenous culture that echoes the country’s history.
Alongside its respect for local healing traditions, the resort also strives to innovate and embrace relevant contemporary practices and therapies, reflecting Ramuan’s heritage of evolution.
Through Serenity, The Datai Langkawi seeks to offer guests nurturing, rejuvenating experiences that support a healthy mind, body, and spirit alongside an inner sense of harmony.
