Wellness & Spa vacation
Cucumbers on the eyes, sauna sessions and contrast showers? That's the image many of us have when we think of wellness. But the wellness world has changed in recent years and now offers an extensive creative potpourri for those looking for relaxation and tranquility. In this category you can expect articles about wellness hotels, spa and wellness trips that will be remembered for a long time. The topic of wellness & spa accompanies us beyond a journey. It's about the necessary balance between healthy nutrition, relaxation, exercise, deceleration and joie de vivre. But it is also about contact with the elements, water, fire, earth and air. A wellness & spa holiday can gently ground us again and at the same time inspire us to introduce our own wellness routine.

Fivelements Bali – A Sustainable Wellness Retreat on the Ayung River in Ubud
There we stood in front of a slab, surrounded by a lush green lawn. A colorful ribbon made of three different colors was wrapped around my left index finger. My childhood ring dangled at the bottom. According to our priest, there is a holy place of prayer where special energies flow, exactly where we were standing. The ring swung, suddenly becoming a pendulum. Whether by wind, my pulse or whatever forces. The closeness to people and nature put a smile on our faces. Welcome to Fivelements Retreat in Bali!
