Starting the year off on a wellbeing high, Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An has shone brightly at the annual Condé Nast Traveller Spa Awards 2019, with The Heart of The Earth Spa named Best Emotional Recovery Space and honoured as one of the Five Best Spas in the World.

Condé Nast Traveller needs little introduction. For over two decades, it’s been “at the vanguard of new age exploration and luxury travel.” The annual Spa Awards represent one of the highest acclaims in the wellbeing world, with the winners then profiled in the annual Spa Guide – which accompanies the March issue of Condé Nast Traveller – a roundup of the world’s best spas, retreats, medi-clinics and more.

“It takes a very special team to create a space that genuinely provides emotional nourishment, way beyond the mere physical act of administering treatments,” comments Luisa Anderson, Regional Director of Spa, Asia Pacific Resorts. “This award is testament to every single member of The Heart of the Earth Spa, whose commitment to the notion of mindfulness and connection is a joy to witness and a pleasure to experience. It’s truly an honour for the Spa to be recognised in this way.”

The Heart of The Earth Spa’s six gorgeous double and two serene single spa villas – each featuring an overwater relaxation pavilion and crystal singing bowls – float atop a lotus-filled lagoon. Signature experiences include the 150-minute Nam Hai Earth Song Ritual and nightly A Goodnight Kiss To The Earth: a complimentary experience that involves guests floating Vietnamese wishing candles on the lagoon lulled by the earth-tune vibrations. The "peaceful" Thanh Tĩnh Yoga Pavilion, a spacious 130-square-metre (1,400 square foot) serenity structure, is set among shady palms in the gardens bordering the Spa and offers group, private and couples’ AntiGravity yoga classes, as well as yoga, mindfulness and meditation sessions.

Establishing itself as one of Asia’s leading centres of mindfulness and connection, the Resort’s Art of Mindfulness offers a unique experience to guests: an opportunity to explore mindfulness through meditation, yoga classes, cooking classes, and crystal singing bowl spa treatments, all within the cocooning sanctuary of The Nam Hai.

The Spa is also launching a new program of Visiting Masters in 2019, in modalities ranging from Energy Healing to Sixth Sense Readings, Aura-Soma Colour Therapy to Chakra Balancing. Also new for 2019 is Mindful Moments: an in-villa experience that brings the discovery of inner peace and reconnection directly to guest bedrooms through a personal singing bowl, audio meditations from Plum Village, purifying spa products, natural essential oils, and a copy of the book Love Letter to the Earth as an introduction to Thich Nhat Hanh’s heart-lifting wisdom.
