Meet the Editor: Dervla Louli, Wellness Editor

August 13, 2018

Introducing Dervla Louli, founder of Compare Retreats and a globetrotting marathon runner, wellness retreat aficionado and yoga teacher with a penchant for golden pineapples, who's joined LUXE as Contributing Wellness Editor.

Whether you’re looking to shift summer's Aperol-induced kg’s, get ahead of the next fitness cult or are simply seeking some precious time out, Dervla’s curated list of wellness experiences will be available through LUXE City Guides. Here are 3 of her fave Asian retreats to whet your appetite.

Digital Detox at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

Digitally detoxing in hyper-connected Central Hong Kong might sound nigh on impossible, but spa director Jeremy McCarthy has created the perfect wellness retreat for busy urbanites who are strapped for time. The two-day, three-night experience is designed to help you disconnect from all your digital devices and it's very effective. Trust me, I nearly left my phone behind me when I checked out. mandarinoriental.com

Ayurveda Wellness Programme at Como Shambhala Estate, Bali

The pools at Como Shambhala Estate are a work of art and the view from the balcony of Wanakasa residence is my favourite place to enjoy breakfast in all of Bali. The Ayurveda Programme Dosha-based treatment plan is gentle but extremely effective at improving digestion and creating harmony in both the body and mind. comohotels.com

Triathlon Training at Thanyapura, Phuket

This state-of-the-art sport and health resort boasts a hotel, four swimming pools, tennis courts, running track, soccer field, yoga studio, meditation centre, gym, spa, integrative wellness centre, restaurant and vegan cafe. It’s the most comprehensive fitness facility I’ve ever come across and caters to Olympians, professional athletes, fitness fanatics, families and complete beginners alike. thanyapura.com
