Aman Wellness Journey – September 18 - October 3, 2017
With wellness travel on the rise in recent years, in particularly in conjunction with adventure, this brand-new handcrafted itinerary was designed by Remote Lands and Aman to meet this growing trend. The 16-day itinerary will include stops in Bali and Java in Indonesia, followed by the Philippines and Vietnam, staying at five Aman properties including Amandari and Amankila in Bali, Amanjiwo in Borobudur, Amanpulo in Pamalican Island and Armanoi in Nha Trang, Vietnam.
The trip will be led by renowned wellness specialist Yamuna Zake, the woman behind the globally recognized Yamuna® Body Rolling Method, who will provide intensive daily body rolling sessions at each Aman property along with inflight sessions during transit to work the joints and muscles. Guests will also be treated to health-conscious meals and cultural excursions. Among the itinerary highlights include learning how to cook traditional Indonesian and Filipino dishes from local experts; island-hopping over turquoise waters in the Philippines by private jet; taking a private snorkeling excursion to discover Indonesia’s abundant sea life; and catching unforgettable sunrises over Java’s spiritual Borobudur monument.
