Getting away from it all is a quest made massively tricky in a modern world driven by technology. The almost constant need to be kept in the loop is one that snares even the most care-free of us.
But we all need to redress the balance sometimes, to leave work and the social whirl firmly at the back of our minds. This is where the Alma Retreat steps in.
A new venture launched in Ras Al Khaimah, this desert escape offers guests a variety of weekend programmes based on three primary themes: heart, mind and body. Living in one of the 15 tents, you’ll be one of up to 30 people taking part in getaways involving elements such as dance, fitness, art, meditation, and hypnosis.
“This is the first of its kind in the GCC,” Sarah Arnold, Alma Retreat founder. “It provides everything you need to recharge your batteries: 100 percent organic food with various diet options available every weekend – juice fasts to paleo, daily yoga, meditation, fitness and creative classes. The retreat is rooted inside the desert of RAK with a focus on nature and simplicity.”
