These four far-flung re­treats of­fer dif­fer­ent ap­proaches to heal­ing, from the sci­en­tific to the power of plants and the gift of good nu­tri­tion. VILLA STÉPHANIE, GER­MANY This tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced medi-spa in Baden-Baden is part of the five-star Bren­ners Park Ho­tel & Spa. Its 10-day Kings Way pro­gram is the star, com­bin­ing sci­ence and al­ter­na­tive ther­a­pies and fea­tur­ing 91 dif­fer­ent treat­ments in­volv­ing diet, re­lax­ation and de­tox­i­fy­ing. AMILLA FUSHI, MAL­DIVES ‘Move­ment is medicine’ is the mantra of Body­ism, a holis­tic pro­gram that com­bines yoga, stretch­ing, clas­si­cal bal­let, func­tional move­ment and Pi­lates. At Amilla Fushi’s Javvu Spa, housed un­der a thatched roof on the wa­ter’s edge, there’s life­style con­sul­ta­tion, spe­cial well­ness meals, a daily treat­ment and a move­ment class twice daily. BORGO SANTO PI­ETRO, TUS­CANY This exquisitely re­stored manor house, or­ganic farm, restau­rant and cook­ing school is one of the most sub­lime coun­try es­tates in Italy. For starters, guests are greeted with an or­ganic tea in­fused with blended herbs picked from the gar­dens, then a sen­sory rit­ual us­ing oil made from laven­der, neroli, rose or jas­mine. RE­VIVO, BALI Bali hardly lacks in well­ness re­treats, but Re­vivo trades the beach for the hills of Nusa Dua, where it’s tucked away in three hectares of teak for­est. The con­cept here is a three-pronged ap­proach to health — Moveo (fit­ness), Re­mis­sio (spa) and Nutrio (restau­rant and bar) — with a sched­ule of im­mer­sive pro­grams and in­di­vid­u­ally tai­lored stays.
