7 Days of Heal­ing Bliss at Aja Mal­ibu

LuxeGetaways - - Editor’s Note - BY SHELBIE LANDRY

De­signed by Aus­tralian mys­tic and artist Inan­nya Mag­ick, Aja Mal­ibu spans 23 ocean-view acres, and boasts seven unique, eco-friendly guest ac­com­mo­da­tions, as well as seven beau­ti­fully man­i­cured Mag­ick Gar­dens.

Aja Mal­ibu in­cor­po­rates its com­plete heal­ing con­cepts into its com­fort­able “home with a heart.” Each of the unique fa­cil­i­ties, from the spa to the gue­strooms, in­cor­po­rates some as­pect par­tic­u­larly cho­sen by Inan­nya Mag­ick. From the relics and ar­chi­tec­tural in­spi­ra­tions from her world trav­els to the thou­sands of crys­tals placed in the walls and walk­ways that can­vas the grounds, each of th­ese sep­a­rate en­ti­ties en­cap­su­lates the or­ganic, ar­ti­sanal and holis­tic method­ol­ogy of Aja Mal­ibu.

With an em­pha­sis on the num­ber seven as it per­tains to the body’s seven en­ergy sys­tems (or “chakras”), Aja Mal­ibu of­fers its unique “Sig­na­ture 7-Night Restora­tive Chakra Tune Up” also known as the “Mag­ick Process.” Through­out the seven nights of self-re­align­ment, par­tic­i­pants have the op­por­tu­nity to en­gage in soul-cen­tered med­i­ta­tion, fo­cus on bod­ily heal­ing and en­hance their un­der­stand­ing of cook­ing, gar­den­ing and nu­tri­tional plan­ning through var­i­ous work­shops. With­out the added dis­trac­tion of daily life, Aja Mal­ibu en­cour­ages guests to fo­cus on their in­ner be­ing, and teaches the con­cept of “The Guru is You” – a form of self-em­pow­er­ment wherein the in­di­vid­ual can achieve op­ti­mal health and well-be­ing.

Perched atop the beau­ti­ful moun­tains of Mal­ibu, Aja Mal­ibu in­vites guests to re­lax and re­plen­ish their minds, bod­ies and souls at its allinclu­sive, seven-day re­treat ex­pe­ri­ence that has just opened this sea­son.

The re­sort’s im­pres­sive ded­i­ca­tion to holis­tic heal­ing car­ries through to its toxin-free bath prod­ucts, its chem­i­cal-free clean­ers and most im­por­tantly its farm-totable plant-based, veg­e­tar­ian menu. Guests are treated to unique, color-co­or­di­nated meals each day where they learn how cer­tain col­ored, plant-based foods af­fect their body and pro­mote over­all re­cov­ery. Be­cause all of the in­gre­di­ents come di­rectly from Aja Mal­ibu’s ex­pan­sive gar­dens, ev­ery meal is the epit­ome of fresh­ness, gar­nished with well-ex­e­cuted, artis­tic ex­pres­sion.

At the Spa, guests can en­joy the re­ju­ve­nat­ing mas­sage treat­ments while also be­ing in­tro­duced to the nat­u­ral heal­ing prop­er­ties de­rived from herbs har­vested di­rectly from Aja Mal­ibu’s gar­dens. With all of the mod­ern con­ve­niences as­so­ci­ated with a spa, guests can wait for their next treat­ment in com­plete re­lax­ation by tak­ing a hot or cold plunge in the Crys­tal Cave, detox­ing in the nat­u­ral wood-fired In­fra-Red Sauna or re­lax­ing their mus­cles on the Vi­bra­tion Ma­chine.

Though Aja Mal­ibu pro­motes self-fo­cused restora­tion, they also en­cour­age com­mu­nal en­gage­ment. At the Apothe­cary, guests can interact with a friendly com­mu­nity while par­tic­i­pat­ing in her­bol­ogy work­shops; tea-blend­ing; and even DIY beauty con­sults. Like­wise, the Om Tea Room in­spires guests to form a unique bond with their fel­low par­tic­i­pants as they learn the el­e­ments of a proper tea cer­e­mony.

Aja Mal­ibu’s hope is that by re­mov­ing in­di­vid­u­als from the stress as­so­ci­ated with daily life for just seven days, they can re­turn them to their daily lives feel­ing re­freshed, re­fo­cused, re­ju­ve­nated and ready to im­ple­ment the prac­ti­cal el­e­ments gleaned from their stay.

Aja Mal­ibu’s all-in­clu­sive, seven-night pack­age starts at $10,000, which in­cludes up to 28 spa treat­ments, work­shops, ma­te­ri­als, food and var­i­ous natur­o­pathic sup­ple­men­ta­tion.

Pho­tog­ra­phy Cour­tesy Aja Mal­ibu We whole-heart­edly wel­come all to the Aja ex­pe­ri­ence. May the beauty built here by the hands and hearts of hun­dreds of spe­cial souls spread into your own hearts and in­spire you into your own great­ness and to ex­plore your...
