Mesa Stila Spa Retreat & Coffee Plantation to Create a Definitive Wellness Retreat Concept as
Mesa Stila Wellness Retreat
Hidden-away in twenty-two hectares of gardens and pristine coffee plantation, Mesa Stila Spa Retreat & Coffee Plantation has supported nearly 200 years of habitation in its various forms - from plantation owners to resort guests. This heritage site blends Colonial, Javanese and Contemporary architecture in a property that is nine hundred meters above the plains of Central Java - where all the private villas and public spaces are surrounded by lush vegetation, amazing views and immersed in exotic warmth.
Mesa Stila Spa Retreat & Coffee Plantation will be completely established as a Wellness Retreat from November 1st 2011. Currently undergoing a transition from resort to retreat and led by a team of Spa and Wellness experts, this property will be rebranded as Mesa Stila Wellness Retreat.
Mesa Stila Wellness Retreat will start to offer specially packaged retreats with definitive wellness themes and specialized programs from July 1st 2011; supported with a variety of exceptional wellness inclusions. Developments include: retrained staff, new and additional spa treatments, fitness activities, healthy cuisine menus, cultural and educational programs, retreat guidelines [rules] that stimulate an immediate personal change and packages that include a variety of services that will support a stay of wellness.
Losari, Central Java, 28 July, 2011: In a world where pollution, noise, crowds, unhealthy diets and stress are the norm; Mesa Stila Wellness Retreat offers an escape – indeed a true “retreat” from the noxious daily grind.
Current [un]health statistics from the World Health Organization suggest that by the year 2020, even in the developing world, seven-in-ten people suffering from poor health will be because of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer and smoking related disorders. Yet, so many illnesses can be prevented by taking time now, to create a more healthy outlook; applying some or all of the concepts that are established at Mesa Stila Wellness Retreat: healthy eating; focused exercise; planned relaxation; paying attention to stress management; limitations on smoking; moderation in alcohol consumption - all in a relaxing and stunning natural environment.
Modern travelers are becoming more and more discerning and are looking for experiences beyond simply room and breakfast. From eco-friendly experiences to cultural explorations; passionate travelers are inspired by aspects of their life journey - and Mesa Stila Wellness Retreat offers an opportunity for personal growth and realizations about wellbeing.
The London based think-tank The Future Laboratory www.thefuturelaboratory.com has proposed that “Values, along with value for money, are becoming increasingly important for a new generation of conscience-driven travelers. The places that we spend our money in should be a frame for life. They must make simple acts, such as dining, more meaningful.” The co-founder of Healing Hotels of the World, Anne Biging, adheres to the philosophy that “In today’s saturated material world, health is one of the most precious assets we have. Most people face a lot of stress in their everyday life and want to compensate for this by pursuing health and wellbeing in their free time.”
Mesa Stila’s Retreat Manager, Bryan Hoare, a veteran of the retreat industry and a holder of two masters degrees in human development and applied physiology, notes that: “The free time that guests spend at Mesa Stila Wellness Retreat will help people refine their life experiences and set the stage for a greater level of awareness; a realization that personal wellbeing does not have to be arduously brought about by extreme dieting or hours-upon-hours of exercise each week. It is simply that people need to learn some of the techniques of creating a more healthful lifestyle: such as taking time to breathe calmly, undertaking simple daily tasks [such as brushing one’s teeth] with a focus on the moment and purpose in the outcome; establishing movement and physical activity as a part of a normal day; or making more healthy food choices at the supermarket or over a business lunch.”
Whether on a long stay fourteen-night retreat, or a short two-night escape, guests buy into the Mesa Stila retreat experience with packages that will offer all inclusive stays and which encompass the following:
In addition, specific retreats will offer programs that are identifiable to the type of activities that guests wish to focus on; this includes options for stays with durations of: 3, 5, 7, 10 and 14 nights, with the following essential offerings: Fitness & Weight Management / De-stress & Indulgence / Cleansing - here the name of the retreat is a clear indication of the projected outcome and retreat inclusions.
Mesa Stila will also offer an Executive Recharge retreat targeted at top-end management staff in the corporate sector and two, two-night packages – Dynamism and Escapism, which will be of interest to guests from the local and regional market, who want to enjoy a short wellbeing break.
In summary, Mesa Stila Spa Retreat & Coffee Plantation is transitioning to become Mesa Stila Wellness Retreat. The property iis offering fully integrated wellness retreats, with a variety of wellness activities, programs and services that will support a more healthy lifestyle and create a wellness holiday experience.
Bryan Hoare observes that: “Taking care of your wellbeing now, means fewer health problems in the future, less time lost to illness, a more vibrant life, greater energy and an all round better you. Sustainable wellness is an attitude as much as it is learned on a wellness retreat; however, immersing yourself into a space of wellness is the first step. Moreover, for those people who have taken the first step, it is another step”.
