As an antidote to high-stress urban living, Aman is offering an array of holistic experiences and therapies across its global portfolio of luxurious resort properties, which are designed to help guests achieve happiness and contentment, as well as inner enlightenment.
At the stunning Amankila on Bali’s southern coast, for example, guffaws will occasionally shatter the peace and quiet as guests participate in Hasyu – or laughing yoga – which is based on the principle that spontaneous laughter can be a cure for just about anything, as it’s said to strengthen immune functions, bring oxygen to the body and brain and nurture feelings of positivity. Or you could travel up into the foothills of the Himalaya to Amankora in remote Bhutan – a country renowned for its GNH (gross national happiness) index – to achieve a sense of felicity, mental clarity and peace of mind through the resort’s Energetic Emotional Pain Release and Hypnotherapy programme.
If neither of those appeal as a path to fulfilment, Amankora also offers an opportunity to Discover the Meaning of Life, while a journey to the edge of the Caribbean brings you to Amanyara in the Turks and Caicos islands for a Star Lullaby. You could, however, achieve complete stress-free isolation by sailing through the Indonesian archipelago aboard the phinisis Amandira and Amanikan, whose Castaway Digital Detox will leave you feeling gloriously disconnected.
