Alma means ‘soul’ in Spanish and Portuguese and true to it’s meaning, the newly opened wellness retreat in Ras Al Khaimah, seeks to revive the soul and believes in ‘inspiring the mind, changing the body and unlocking creativity’.
Definitely a first of its kind in the UAE, that can boast of many over-the-top luxury hotels and resorts, the Alma Retreat is a wellness getaway that embraces solitude, simplicity and the beauty of the surrounding desert environment with 15 tented camps that can accommodate to a maximum of 30 people. The camps are comfortable and have been kept very simple – almost deliberately. The founder of the retreat, Sarah Arnold’s vision is to help the guests to go back to their roots, back to the nature and detach from the high strung daily life that most of us have become habituated in leading. We are booked into one of Alma’s weekend retreats very soon!
Retreats take place every weekend, (with weekdays being booked by corporates and groups) with a variety of programmes based on three themes: Heart, Mind and Body.
There are differently themed diet weekends with 100 percent organic food supplied by Alma’s partners that include Detox Delight and Greenheart Organic Farms.
Starting in March, Alma Retreat is offering a special wellness weekend rate of AED 799 per person or AED 999 per room, including accommodation, food and all activities. Wellness weekends include 1 night’s accommodation and 2 days of mind and body activities plus all meals and refreshments courtesy of their partners Detox Delight. Transfers to/from Dubai available at AED 300 each way. More info: www.iamalma.com
