After – before – in between a long day in the temples, upon arrival or just before you get ready for your flight, what could be better than a moment of relaxation either enjoying a massage, a swim & a cocktail, a book from our library, share a moment of friendship during our complimentary high tea time, or join one of our Nia retreats with Debbie Van Ginkel.
