BREAK-UP BREAKS

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Escape -

Heal­ing food, sooth­ing spa treat­ments, ses­sions with a re­la­tion­ship coach, and no al­co­hol or phone re­cep­tion (so you can’t drink and dial)—well­ness re­treats are of­fer­ing pack­ages for the re­cently separated, whether you’re the dumper or the dumpee. A sur­vey by travel com­pany Quickbeds found 66 per­cent of peo­ple have taken a hol­i­day to heal a bro­ken heart. The Sa­madhi Healthy and Well­ness Re­treat & Spa in Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia, has a Re­cov­ery from Sepa­ra­tion pro­gramme that is tai­lored to suit every guest’s needs. To wit, they of­fer loss coun­selling, be­reave­ment ther­apy, sound heal­ing and “guided im­agery” (Imag­ine you’re in a peace­ful meadow ... ). Want to es­cape fur­ther? Fly north­ward to the UK, where di­vorce coach Sara Dav­i­son runs break-up re­cov­ery re­treats at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions. Or book into the Af­ter Break-up W.I.N.E. Re­treat in Costa Rica (it stands for “Walk In New En­light­en­ment”). Don’t want to detox? Hard Rock Ho­tel San Diego, Cal­i­for­nia, has the You Will Sur­vive pack­age aimed at “un­cou­plers” that in­cludes wine, ice cream, and a playlist of break-up bal­lads, plus a pro­fes­sional makeover and pho­to­shoot (they sug­gest us­ing the pics for your on­line dat­ing pro­file). www.samad­hire­treat.com.au; www.winen­light­en­ment.com; www.hardrock.com
