Rejuvenate and detoxify at The Lighthouse Retreat
Here are five ways to unplug & nourish your mind, body & soul with The Lighthouse Retreat
The Lighthouse Retreat is the Middle East’s first year-round holistic wellness and detox retreat. The experience opened its doors in 2020, with the intention of helping participants take a much-needed pause from their hectic schedules and create space for themselves to slow down and reconnect with their inner self to find balance.
From delicious nourishing meals to healing therapies, coaching, meditation, yoga and more, The Lighthouse Retreat is an adults-only sanctuary aimed at both local and international guests. The Retreat offers an opportunity to reset mentally, physically and emotionally in a stunning seaside setting, sited only 45 minutes from Dubai, in Ras al Khaimah.
Here are five ways to unplug & nourish your mind, body & soul with The Lighthouse Retreat:
Awaken the Shakti in you
Activate your inner energy through the ancient practice of Kundalini yoga. It is a combination of breathwork techniques, movement and sound that activates and generates energy. This intense practice is akin to an express train that shakes and wakes you up. The stillness between poses opens the mind giving us a sense of the fullness of who we are, releasing the ego. It is truly exhilarating.
Dive into Reiki Energy Healing
Our bodies sense energy, feel it and use it every second of the day. Reiki Energy Healing is a deeply nurturing therapeutic treatment to calm, soothe and heal your body, mind and soul. This session can be delivered individually or as part of a group and incorporates a guided meditation and receiving Reiki energy. The talented team at The Lighthouse Retreat work with the chakras to bring your mind in alignment, nourish your soul and nurture your body. The best part is you just lie back and relax and allow the magic to happen.
Fire & Ice
The Fire & Ice session is an ideal activity for a quick body recover, through the use of salt in a hot sauna to purify the air and improve breathing and blood circulation. Once you’ve warmed up in the sauna, take a dip in the nearby lagoon or sink into the custom ice baths. Submerging in icy water has many health benefits; it reduces inflammation, boosts the immune system, promotes better sleep and even focuses the mind. Cold immersion releases feel-good hormones, but it can be a challenge getting in for the first time.
Paddle Board It Up
Fuse the calmness of yoga with the power energy bursts of HiiT. From dedicated breathing work and specific postures such as vinyasas and asanas, to powerful HiiT sessions, The Lighthouse Retreat will test your balance and agility while exercising on a paddle board.
Red Desert Afternoons
At The Lighthouse Retreat, the team believes in the healing energy of the desert, hence the programme incorporates an afternoon desert session for grounding using the healing power of the sand, going on a journey like no other to inner peace and connection with the higher self. The session includes a grounding walk, meditations on the dunes and a lovely picnic whilst watching the sunset.
Guests can truly connect to their inner and outer worlds, within the perfect balance of nature and nurture at The Lighthouse Retreat. The wellness program is supported by two healthy food options: a mostly raw plant-based meal plan or a liquid detox which includes juices, soups and smoothies. The Retreat’s food options do not include processed carbohydrates, meat, dairy products or caffeine, helping guests experience a truly detoxifying cleanse.
The Lighthouse Retreat is located at Al Hamra Golf Club, Lower Level, Al Hamra Village, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.
