The luxury wellness space expands its current offering with a new poolside collection.
One of Bali’s most reputable getaways has announced expansion, welcoming a series of indulgent new suites to its Ubud residence. Despite a tumultuous 2020, Fivelements Retreat https://fivelements.org remains devoted to remaining open for business for the benefit of the domestic market and the surrounding community, expanding its existing offerings for the comfort of the retreat’s fanbase.
11 new pool suites have joined the Fivelements family in the Balinese jungle, sumptuous poolside additions that mark the latest architectural changes since 2010, and bring the total number of suites to 20.
The 11 new suites are spread across four different categories, and include one Water Garden Pool Suite, eight Hillside Pool Suites, one River View Pool Suite, and one Signature Pool Suite. Inspired by traditional Balinese structures, but intertwined with modern creature comforts, the rooms sit amongst luscious gardens to fully immerse guests in the natural wonders around them.
These latest offerings are also the first involvement from new owners Evolution Wellness, and cement Fivelements Retreat’s reputation as one of Bali’s most sumptuous lifestyle brands.
An innovator in the wellness space, a type of travel focused on improving wellbeing in mind, body, and spirit, Fivelements is in fact the first Bali-based retreat to be welcomed into the US-based Wellness Tourism Association. As President Anne Dimon explains; “We are honoured to welcome Fivelements Retreat as our first member from Bali.
“The WTA is committed to supporting the development of the wellness tourism industry not only for the good of individual travellers but for the health of the planet, and Fivelements Retreat is in perfect alignment with our mission and values,” she continues.
“As the world begins to recover from the devastation caused by the global pandemic, we will all be more concerned about our personal health and wellness, and it will become even more important for travellers to have facilities such as Fivelements to retreat to as health continues to be a top priority.”
Fivelements Retreat continues to operate as usual for the domestic market of Indonesia. Stringent health and safety measures continue to be upheld for guests and staff alike to reduce the spread of Covid-19. These include daily temperature checks, regular disinfection of the property, use of liquid disinfectant for daily cleaning activities, and implementation of social distancing.
As Fivelements Retreat Bali General Manager John T G Nielsen explains; “With 90% of our staff living in the surrounding villages, we felt that staying open is one of the ways we can continue to support our staff and the local community. We’ve also curated a range of exclusive, tailor-made packages designed for individuals seeking a wellness retreat during this time, or those who may be required to self-isolate.”
