Anantara Hotels and Resorts partners with lifestyle coach Mel Wells

The Anantara hotel group has partnered with UK life coach Mel Wells on a four-day wellness retreat for women in Thailand.

The retreat, held at Anantara Layan in Phuket at the end of October, is taking place in partnership with Wells, author of The Goddess Revolution: Make Peace With Food, Love Your Body And Reclaim Your Life.

Anantara describes the retreat as designed to help participants to: “transform themselves and their relationship with food”. The resort group also explained that:

“The retreat will encourage emotional, physical and nutritional restoration and relief for women who want to set themselves free of diets and fall in love with their bodies”.

The philosophy behind the retreat is based on health and eating psychology coach Wells’ best-selling book and will feature a series of workshops.

The retreat will also feature a fitness element, with options including muay thai boxing, yoga sessions and paddle boarding.

Spa treatments and healthy cooking classes will also form part of the retreat. The resort group explained that:

“One of the most important parts of the transformation is nutrition, so Anantara has worked with Mel to offer a dedicated menu of healthy and wholesome dishes throughout the retreat.”

Fred Varnier, managing director of The Residences by Anantara and Anantara Layan Phuket, said:

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Mel Wells, her story is inspirational and we hope to be able to help pass that message to women across the world.”

Wells commented: “The retreat is all about self-love and self-worth.”
