Progressive boutique hotel brand SALT is launching a season of wellness retreats at its first flagship property, SALT of Palmar on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius.
The unconventional 59-room beachfront haven introduces a bold, new humanistic concept of self-discovery to culturally curious, style-savvy, modern travelers. The hotel also stands out by distinctively championing sustainability and connecting guests to the local community, getting to the beating heart of a destination.
Underscoring this commitment to meaningful travel experiences, three unique Wellness Retreats (September 11-18, October 9-16 and November 29-December 4) bring the inspiring spirit of SALT of Palmar to life – nurturing guests through restorative workshops, inspiring talks and activities, spiritual pursuits, exploring local culture and nature, and, of course, fun.
“At SALT we are big believers in the restorative power of travel. To that end, we have teamed up with three passionate and knowledgeable wellness experts to curate three unique, immersive wellness experiences. During your stay with us, you will get in touch with nature, with Mauritius, and, most importantly, with your own health and wellbeing,” says Group Spa and Wellness Manager Kerensa Langitan.
