Programme sessions include a lesson on plants and herbs in the garden and time spent in the eco gym. Participating children will also get the chance to paint nails, carry out a foot scrub, learn about bees and the use of honey and help mix organic beauty products.

Treatments offered at the 2,200sq m Six Senses Spa include ayurveda aromatherapy full body treatments, shiatsu, Indian head massage, the Queen Bee Firming Facial with honey and royal jelly, hammam treatments, homeopathy and a series of body wraps.

There is also a medi-spa element, with the spa offering health checkups, healthy nutrition and exercise-based retreats and weight management programmes.
