Those looking for a luxury break with a difference in 2020 can head to the Swiss Alps for an unforgettable wellness getaway at Sir Richard Branson’s mountain retreat, The Lodge.

For the ultimate yoga, ski and holistic wellness getaway, enjoy a bespoke four-day retreat led by Larah Davis, founder of Ibiza Retreats and Wholeycow Verbier from 15th March. The retreat will focus on looking after the mind, spirit and body, empowering guests to replenish and revitalise. Guests will be able to enjoy a three-night stay at The Lodge in Verbier, for a wellness journey like no other, as well as experience the luxuries of one of Verbier’s most exclusive lodges.

Rates are priced in Swiss Francs for three nights and start from CHF 3,765 - (£2,955 based on today’s current exchange rate) per person based on double occupancy.

Guests will be able to spend their days meditating, practising yoga and skiing in the snowy mountains. Between working on their strength, balance and well-being, they can retreat back to The Lodge to relax and unwind. The brand-new outdoor hot tub makes for the perfect spot to ease muscles after a daily workout, as well as the steam room and a masseuse on hand for a well-deserved massage or therapeutic treatment recommended by the wellness coach. In the evenings, the Michelin trained chefs will prepare fresh and healthy meals using locally sourced ingredients.

For those preferring a summer break, a four-day wellness getaway will be led by Mountain Beach Fitness Retreats, who are highly experienced in delivering tailored fitness and wellbeing retreats in the mountains. Guests will be able to enjoy a three-night stay at The Lodge, where they'll embark on their own fitness and wellbeing journey.

The wellness retreat is available over two dates this summer – 18th-21st June and 17th–20th September. Rates are priced in Swiss Francs for three nights and start from CHF 2,637 – (£2,100 based on today’s current exchange rate) for single occupancy.

The programme is incomparable to any other and is varied, fun and designed to test all aspects of fitness that will challenge the body, change perspective and refresh the mind. Guests will start with a pre-arrival consultation where they’ll each set personal goals to immerse themselves in a mind and body transformation. Group sizes are kept small, allowing sessions to be customised to make sure guests keep on track.

The days will be spent immersed in nature, with the stunning Swiss mountains as a picture-perfect backdrop. The altitude of the Swiss Alps will test guests physically but balances nicely with daily yoga and fresh delicious food (prepared by The Lodge's award-winning trained chefs), leaving guests feeling revived and energised.

Between working on fitness and well-being, whether that's hiking or practicing yoga, guests will be able to retreat back to The Lodge to relax and unwind. Chefs will prepare healthy balanced meals using locally sourced ingredients and guests will be able to continue to enjoy the fresh mountain air with the choice of al fresco dining.
