Covid-19 Update

 

A new era of back-to-nature experiences 

 

Amidst the new world that surrounds us and the way we travel, the essence of Balance Holidays and every experience we design remains untouched. Positioned in the heart of nature in lesser-traversed destinations, favoured for the generosity of space, privacy and tranquility. Our experiences are the perfect option for coming together with friends and family, as well as meeting and joining other Balance Holidays guests to share the moment, connect and restore. The purity of the environment combined with a unique selection of nature-based activities, workshops and classes. Which are facilitated by our team of learned experts, result in a highly curated and life-enhancing experience. 

We rigorously hand-select and work closely with every property in our collection to fulfil a promise of utmost intimacy and privacy. As we understand the destination plays an integral role in shaping an enjoyable experience for you. In light of Covid-19, the health and wellbeing of our guests, teams and communities remains key priority. Which is why we have evaluated, adapted and adjusted our offerings. Taking all necessary steps in accordance with guidelines outlined by the World Health Organisation (WHO), Centres of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health authorities of each destination and developing individually determined Health and Safety protocols for every experience. Allowing us to continue to stay committed to providing an authentic, comfortable and safe environment as expected from us, for you to focus on the things that matter to you.

 

FIXED DATE RETREATS

 

Together with our experts and partner properties, we continue to remain committed to maintaining and heightening our health, hygiene and safety measures. Operating with raised vigilance and retreat specific Health and Safety protocols established, enforced and in full-effect. Allowing every guest to relish in the inspiring and natural settings and interact safely with others who are also attending the retreat. Drawing the focus and attention to sustain vitality and a true state of being on a Fixed Date retreat.

Each property in our collection is chosen for their intimate size and supreme indoor and outdoor spaces. Which will either be privately reserved in whole or depending on the chosen destination and an agenda item takes place indoors, Balance Holidays’ guests will have exclusive access and use of dedicated spaces for dining and any indoor activities and classes for the full duration of the programme. With their well-thought out use of space and the core principle of our programme design to encourage guests to spend time outdoors in nature: moving, learning and growing. Every activity, workshop and class is individually guided and we keep group sizes reasonable to enable the objective of 2M social distancing at all times. Minimising the number of interactions to thoroughly protect the health and safety of our guests, teams and staff. Where social distancing is not possible, a face covering will be required. At present, we are continuing to work with local, regional and national authoritative bodies, adopting policy changes and abiding to regulations set out by the host destination.

Held in boutique properties and hotels, centred beside sprawling stretches of nature. On a Private Retreat, Balance Holidays’ guests will have exclusive access to the full property and its facilities. Or, depending on the chosen destination, will be provided with privately reserved indoor spaces for activities, workshops, mealtimes and more to minimise interactions with others. In general, every property is chosen by Balance Holidays following a series of stringent tests and for their expertise in providing a divinely calm, restful and comfortable space for private groups to make moments last longer. Activities, which are primarily held outdoors and remain individually guided by a team of proficient experts, allowing sufficient space for 2M social distancing. In the rare instances this is not possible, a face covering will be required. At present, we continue to work closely with our property partners and experts, heightening awareness of health, hygiene and safety through increased sanitation and deep-cleaning procedures across all points of operation.
