Step into a tranquil sanctuary in Ras Al Khaimah, far away from the stresses and demands of modern city life
It is very easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Taking time out to rest and rejuvenate is essential for overall wellbeing and to live a balanced lifestyle, especially during these uncertain pandemic times. Travelling to far-flung corners of the globe to get away from it all is not always a feasible solution, but a local getaway at an enriching retreat is something we can achieve, and it might be just what is needed. Enter The Lighthouse Retreat, Middle East’s first year-round holistic wellness and detox retreat that believes in balance over extremes and works to be part of your lifestyle to enhance your life and change your perspective.
The Lighthouse Retreat opened in 2020, with the intention of helping guests take a much-needed pause during their hectic schedules, create space for themselves to slow down and reconnect with their inner self and find balance. From delicious healthy meals, healing therapies, coaching, meditation, yoga and much more, The Lighthouse Retreat is an adult only sanctuary aimed at both local and international guests. The Retreat offers an opportunity to reset mentally, physically and emotionally in a beautiful setting, located only 45 minutes from Dubai, on a stunning seaside location in Ras al Khaimah.
The Lighthouse Retreat’s core principles are centred around creating a relaxing space for people to experience mindfulness, a strong feeling of community, and to build awareness around wellness and tools that people can incorporate into their daily lives and share with others.
The Lighthouse Retreat co-founder, Simon Dunn, talks about the birth of his vision for the retreat with his partner Laura; “We were both at breaking point, mentally and physically. We needed to press pause, get some headspace, and detox our bodies and minds. So, trips to wellness centres were booked. We didn’t quite know what to expect, and the results completely blew us away. The yoga, exercise and clean eating, combined with the healing sessions gave us clarity and balance as well as amazing physical benefits; reducing blood pressure, clearing our skin, and flexing and strengthening our bodies.”
At The Retreat, you can expect to experience transformational and immersive activities including yoga, Reiki, fitness, sound healing, SUP boarding, grounding, and meditation amongst others. Guests can truly connect to their inner and outer worlds, the perfect balance of nature and nurture. The Lighthouse Retreat offers a space that exudes calm and tranquillity, facing the water and hidden away from view. There are hideouts and nooks in every corner, whether it be a hammock tied to the palm trees or a comfy armchair facing the sea – everything has been expertly designed to rejuvenate and calm.
The team at The Lighthouse Retreat are trained in a wide range of complimentary modalities and are always onsite to support guests throughout their experience. All program sessions are in a group setting, and additional private sessions if needed, are available to further enhance the experience. The wellness program is supported by two healthy food options: a mostly raw plant-based meal plan or a liquid detox which includes juices, soups and smoothies. The Retreat’s food options do not include processed carbohydrates, meat, dairy products or caffeine helping guests to deeply cleanse and nourish mind, body and soul.
The Lighthouse Retreat is located at Al Hamra Golf Club, Lower Level, Al Hamra Village, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.
