‘REVIVO IS ABOUT procuring the best services, therapists and settings to teach mind training – giving our guests the tools and takeaways to feel well,’says Laurie Mias, resort CEO and co-founder. ‘One feels well when one feels happy, and vice-versa,’ she adds. ‘And to be happy, we must train our minds to be healthy, and to see the world in a positve way.’ If you’re wondering about the name, it’s derived from the Latin verb ‘revivere’, translated to mean ‘I’ll live again’ – and this most luxe of resorts certainly makes guests feel re-born, thanks to REVIVO’s unique combination of personalised treatments and excellence of service that all add up to the ultimate in health and wellness experiences. The centre has a philosophy of soothing the spirit, rejuvenating the body and enriching the mind, emotional balance, detox, organic weight loss or healthy sleep habits, with additional options for stress relief and expectant mothers. Nestled among the lush forestry of Nusa Dua on Indonesia’s island idyll of Bali, the secluded property is luxurious yet non-ostentatious. REVIVO pays close attention to every detail, from the accessories found in the pick-up cars, to the hand soap in rooms, the teacups, the resort’s signature scent, the tableware and spa ceramics, to the variety of kombucha flavours. Locally-sourced materials and fabrics are used for the rooms, with décor in clean and calming neutral tones, and only the very best in equipment and fittings. REVIVO emotionally connects with clients by stimulating their through a comprehensive journey that takes in a range of relaxation activities, yoga, pilates, energy arts and meditation, a superlative spa, holistic medicinal treatments and a personalised gourmet food diet based on each customer’s individual nutritional needs. Distinct from other spa hotels, the resort takes a more reflective, long-term approach to wellbeing, combining physical and mental aspects for a deeper sense of serenity and fulfillment. REVIVO’s bespoke programmes encourage guests to embrace change not just in their bodies, but also the rest of their lives. The resort specialises in wellness retreats, aimed at overall healing, self-awareness and mind training, rather than treating guests for specific illnesses or injuries. Retreats can be tailor-made to target individual goals – such as senses: Every detail, activity and programme has been designed to heighten how visitors see, hear, smell, touch, taste and feel the individual elements of their stay. To ensure an exclusive ambience, the resort limits its accomodation to 16 rooms. Each of the spacious Balinese-style suites features a voile-draped four-poster bed, a desk and day bed, lounging areas, plus a sunken bathtub and shower with garden views. Every suite also has its own outdoor dining space, set within a courtyard, in a garden or by a private pool. The resort’s holistic spa space, REMISSIO, comprises treatment rooms, hydro jet Vichy shower beds, hot and cold plunge pools, a jacuzzi, infrared sauna, steam room, pool and aromatic gardens. The fitness centre, MOVEO, meanwhile, encompasses yoga barns, meditation rooms, pilates studios, fitness rooms equipped with TRX, boxing and kinesis equipment, an outdoor space for aerial yoga, a 25 metre lap pool for aqua workouts, and a 500 square metre landscaped park, perfect for outdoor exercise – or simply relaxing. The resort also boasts its own hydroponic garden, growing plants entirely without the use of soil. The hotel also works well for business trips, with one such visitor enthusing: ‘Although I was busy all day with meetings, it was great to start the day with a pure Indonesian ritual and healing shots, followed by morning yoga, then a great healthy breakfast. And ending your busy day with a spa treatment is the best to way to guarantee a great night’s sleep. In general, REVIVO is wonderful place – not only for a holiday, with great food and amazing hospitality that will clean your body and mind, but also if you’re in business, but you still want to maintain a healthy lifestyle while travelling for work.’
