SANGHA Retreat by OCTAVE Institute has introduced 21 new wellness programs to help guide guests on their personal journeys of awakening to achieve mind, body and spiritual wellness.
Located west of Shanghai on the outskirts of Suzhou, China, SANGHA Retreat combines Eastern philosophies backed by Western science to help people awaken to a life of greater purpose and personal wellbeing. With a focus on raising consciousness, it has been created for the need of our time by visionary Frederick Chavalit Tsao, fourth-generation steward of a family business that started in The Shanghai Bund before 1906.
The 19-hectare retreat includes AT ONE guest suites; AT ONE Clinic, offering comprehensive wellness assessments and wellbeing programs; AT ONE Healing Spa with extensive spa treatment menu and hydrotherapy circuit; THOUGHT FOR FOOD restaurant; the Meditation Dome; and a seasonal schedule of fitness activities and mindfulness classes designed around the body’s circadian rhythm.
Ranging from two to seven nights, each program includes:
- A personalised, integrated wellness assessment at AT ONE Clinic
- Access to the 12-step hydrothermal spa circuit at AT ONE Healing Spa
- Living Habits Calendar, a daily schedule of fitness classes, cooking demonstrations, mindful workshops, and sound healing meditation
