Customised organic meals, a "yoga barn" and programs for mothers to be all feature at Revivo, Bali's newest wellness resort.
Set on 3ha in Nusa Dua, the resort is the first from the Revivo brand. Co-founder Gordon Oldham said it would "raise the bar for a new level of luxury retreat in Asia".
"We are thrilled to be opening the first resort of Revivo in Bali to meet the increasing demand for rejuvenating, mindful travel," he said.
The property, which opened on March 30, has 16 Balinese-style suites including two four-bedroom villas, plus a restaurant, bar and poolside lounge, spa, fitness area and events space.
It offers retreats ranging from three to 14 days themed around weight loss, better sleep, de-stressing and relaxation, pregnancy and more.
Fitness facilities include a "yoga barn", martial arts hall, reformer Pilates studio, gym and a 25m lap pool, with group classes and private sessions available.
Food is considered to be "equally important" as exercise and includes fresh, wholesome, organic meals with a focus on supporting local farmers and sustainable agriculture.
There's also a spa offering treatments influenced by Balinese traditions along with aroma, hydro and chromo therapies. It has five double treatment rooms, each with an outdoor bath, plus hot and cold plunge pools, a jacuzzi, infrared saunas, steam rooms and a saltwater floating pool.
Revivo plans to open a second location in France in mid-2019 and a Revivo wellness cruise at Komodo Island in early 2019.
- Three-night retreats cost from $US2094 ($2695) per single and$US3089 ($3975) per double.

The first-time visitor to Japan arrives with a lot of baggage, including the cultural variety. All those preconceptions we have about a place like Japan which, from a distance, can seem intense yet calm, modern yet traditional, compact yet spacious.
Maybe it's all these. Just think: Boys Love Manga and woodblock prints. Maid cafes and geisha tea houses. Anime and kabuki. Bullet trains and rickshaws. Crowded cities and serene villages. Hamburgers and sushi.
But the biggest thing confronting the first-time visitor is the unknown...
