•    Floating Leaf Eco-Retreat, Bali
This eco-retreat is a perfect combination of traditional Balinese wisdom and modern luxury. Floating Leaf offers yoga, spa services, healthy cuisine, deep cultural experiences, traditional Balinese healing, and holistic relaxation for body, mind and soul. The massive yoga deck here offers sweeping views of Holy Mt. Agung as well as the Indian Ocean and Bali’s outer lying islands.

•    The Farm at San Benito, Philippines
If you have a baby and need a break (we can almost hear you scream “Yes!”), this is the right place for you. We say this as this is among the few wellness retreats which offer infant massages. Apart from special post-natal massages, there are infant massages which can be done in tandem with a massage for the mother. Yoga sessions are held in a pavilion overlooking the lush green tropical forest.
