Alpina Gstaad introduces winter wellness retreats

The Alpina Gstaad in Switzerland will be running a series of retreats for mind, body and spirit between December and March. 

The retreats include the four-day Five Elements retreat. Led by holistic therapist Antonis Sarris, it incorporates breathing exercises, guided meditation and a number of treatments. 

The six-day Mountain Detox Delight packages includes a body composition analysis, colonics, detox cuisine, salt inhalation in the hotel spa’s Himalayan salt grotto, tai chi and Chakra balancing. 

Meanwhile, the three-night Alpine Wellness programme features a nutritional consultation and a focus on fitness and movement.  A three-day Anti-Ageing Rejuvenation retreat with skincare brand QMS Medicosmetics will also be held in March. 

Eric Favre, managing director of Alpina Gstaad, says, “The Six Senses Spa programmes combine high tech and high touch approaches that blend the old and the new to stimulate and re-energise the body."
