Today’s modern world holds a great deal of stress. Constant sensory overload means that you never truly have time to properly “switch off.” This means that your body is often in a constant state of stress and never has time to rest, rejuvenate and regenerate as the body needs to for optimal health. Being in a state of prolonged stress can cause all sorts of dis-ease in the body, so taking time to focus on de-stressing the body is becoming increasingly important. Immersed within Samahita’s healing environment, you will get this much-needed “time out” to mentally detox from modern living. The De-stress Program gives you tools for long-term change, helping you to regain balance, health and wellbeing that you can carry back and incorporate into your everyday life.

Enjoy relaxing in the natural surroundings, bask in the beauty and presence of daily yoga classes, let time slip away as you enjoy a variety of massages and treatments, or simply relax in a hammock with a cool, fresh coconut.

Your retreat includes an ayurvedic herbal de-stress formula, yoga practices, breathwork & meditation, access to all fitness classes, six ‘Body & Soul’ therapies, two Body Wrap or Body Scrubs, Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Therapy, four Infrared Sauna Therapy Sessions, abdominal massage, delicious & nutritious buffet meals, fresh juices and smoothies, Samahita’s Ayurveda-inspired “Stress Free Living Guide” a De-Stress Welcome kit with goodies to calm the 5 senses, full access to Samahita’s facilities including pool and steam room and a complimentary introductory counselling session with a professional psychologist.

It serves a dual purpose of healthily nourishing the body and mind while also delighting the senses through great taste and variation. The food philosophy is based on the principle of “Sattva”, a Sanskrit term that means pure and light with a focus on easy digestion. 

The emphasis is on natural ingredients including yoghurt, kefir, soy milk, coconut milk, breads, jams, muesli and breakfast juices all homemade daily. The approach to eating is that food is medicine for the body and food effects not only the body but also the mind. For those that want to eat light and natural, there is a raw food options for all meals. For those who have completed a detox and want to gradually ease back into normal food, you can customize a meal plan that suits you. The balanced diet will be different for individuals which is why each buffet meal offers a big variety of dishes that contain all the necessary macro and micro nutrients including healthy carbohydrates, essential fatty acids and good quality protein. The majority of meals are vegetarian but Samahita also serve fish and egg as protein options a few times a week.
