Since opening in 2015, the highly-regarded retreat has amassed fans from all walks of life but resonates especially with those who work in high-stress jobs, including CEOs, CFOS, and entrepreneurs. Building on his successful practices in Greece and the UK, Jean-Claude Chalmet has developed an effective, integrated therapeutic approach that incorporates a range of global wellness practices, from Kundalini Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine to Clinical Hypnosis and Equine-Assisted Therapy. With this unique approach, The Place creates profound, lifelong transformations in a short amount of time.
Jean-Claude’s process harnesses the power of the mind-body connection that the ancient Greeks practiced over 2,500 years ago. But, recognizing that wellness isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition, The Place tailors its offerings to suit the needs of each individual. The end goal, though, is always the same: to help guests build the tools they need to find a better version of themselves. The result is a unique property that functions as a residential psychotherapy retreat that creates real change in its guests’ lives.
A true oasis on the Island of the Gods, The Place is designed in the traditional Balinese Balé style and offers an enticingly intimate setting for guests to hide away and focus on their wellness.
There are just eight guestrooms here, each one a cozy bolthole rendered with charming aesthetics that seamlessly blend Asian and European influences. Colorful textiles and warm color schemes are perfectly intertwined to create a private dream retreat space. Outside, guests can luxuriate in acres of tranquil gardens and communal areas bedecked with Oriental antiques, family heirlooms, and works of art. Did we mention the two swimming pools, private library, and dedicated team that can organize tours, reservations, and cultural excursions? That’s all available, too.
In keeping with its holistic approach to health, The Place Retreats focuses on providing guests with delicious meals that nourish from the inside out. Each dish is laced with fresh seasonal and organic ingredients and blends the flavors of East and West. Days might begin with tropical fruits, organic smoothies, and cooked-to-order specials, lunch is often a light and wholesome meal, while for dinner, guests can indulge in nutritious gourmet meals.
