Maslina Resort, Croatia’s very first Mindful Luxury property located on Europe’s sunniest island, Hvar, has revealed its latest approach to integrated wellness across the resort, providing guests with the space to feel, think, and improve their overall wellbeing through connection with themselves, each other, and nature.
Centred around Pharomatiq Wellness the name of which derives from the ancient name of Hvar (Pharos) while honouring Hvar Island’s healing plants and herbs (aromatic), the resort uses four modifiable lifestyle factors – sleep and relaxation, exercise and movement, stress and resilience, relationships and purpose – to positively impact the health of guests.
New for the 2023 season, every guest can request a complimentary wellness consultation upon arrival. An expert consultant will walk guests through their Wellness Wheel, understand sleep patterns and lifestyle goals, and guide them on the best treatments based on their chosen intention for the journey they embark on at Maslina. Since bodies and minds are constantly changing, instead of being limited to a treatment menu, guests can choose either 90 or 120 minutes of Wellness Time. Following an in-depth consultation, a bespoke treatment plan is curated for each guest, combining multiple items on the menu to deliver a tailor-made experience.
This year guests can take advantage of the expert Visiting Practitioners who will be on hand to deliver a range of holistic therapy treatments. These include sessions to work on achieving emotional balance, mental clarity, and inner peace. It also enhances the transformative benefits of the ancient healing practice Reiki, Guided Mediation and Restorative Nap, which teaches a breathing technique to optimise napping capacity.
Also new for 2023, the resort has announced that they have partnered with the luxury skincare brand Biologique Recherche to offer a range of facial treatments. Only available in select spas, Biologique Recherche products use a methodology based on over forty years of experience using innovative products and meticulous protocols, guaranteed to leave guests’ skin feeling recharged.
Inspired by the tranquil atmosphere across the hotel, guests can also choose to rejuvenate the body, calm the mind, and heal the spirit with Maslina Resort’s specially curated Wellness Packages, which combine treatments to focus on massage, mindfulness, holistic health, sleep, and detox.
Providing an enhanced wellness adventure for all family members, younger guests can embark on a mindful moment at Maslina Resort. With workshops that empower children and teens to navigate challenging situations with confidence, as well as immersive Reiki to unleash their inner healer, they can also enjoy a range of massages and facials when accompanied by an adult. Every family member’s wellness journey is taken into account, even the four-legged friends. For guests staying in the resort’s four- and five-bedroom villas, the resort also offers Reiki sessions for dogs, which can be particularly helpful for pets who are experiencing physical pain or emotional distress.
Situated in the stunning Maslinica Bay, Maslina’s lush location overlooks the crystalline Adriatic Sea. Whether you seek solace for the mind and soul, relaxation for the body, or a tantalising taste of Mediterranean culture and cuisine, the resort offers an array of relaxing options for couples or families in a landscape of outstanding natural beauty and a proud, untouched cultural heritage.
