It is estimated that 45% of the world population has issues with sleep, and we all know just how much good sleep is essential to both our physical and mental health. I know people that can go to sleep anywhere, and at any time. I’m not one of those. I do not sleep well at all if I’m not in my own bed, with my own pillows. So, while I love to travel and explore, my sleep really suffers each night I’m away from home. And that’s exactly why this news caught my attention.
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® have launched Alchemy of Sleep, a global collection of new and immersive retreats designed to promote rest through sleep-inducing treatments, movement-driven activities and special amenities. Dedicated to those setting intentions for profound change in the new year, the thoughtfully crafted programs support renewal of the body and longevity to come.
Taking a holistic approach to sleep, the Alchemy of Sleep retreats address a variety of practices that require attention, such as nutrition, movement and mindfulness, presenting a mix of treatments and experiences, expert consultations and classes that ensure each guest finds skills to incorporate into their everyday lives. Guests can opt for a one-night ‘Dreamscape’ or extend from two to five nights for a ‘Sleep Transformation,’ providing an even more immersive stay. As a supplement to these offerings, Curated Sleep Boxes feature products that rebalance such as essential oil blends, tea blends, aromatherapy linen mists and silk eye masks.
Available from January through March 2022, retreat elements at participating Rosewood properties include:
