The Extreme Mountain Sports Retreat invites guests to challenge themselves on the Dolomites’ routes by mountain bike, as well as putting their legs to the test by skyrunning the trails, tackling challenging ascents and taking in staggering panoramas.
The Extreme Rock-Climbing Retreat pits seasoned climbers against some of the region’s renowned rock formations, including vertical limestone walls and dramatic rocky spires, supported by professional mountain guides.
Both retreats, available on request until October 2nd, start with daily morning yoga or stretching, followed by the day’s activity, which could include skyrunning, climbing, mountain biking, hiking, traversing via ferrata or taking on a triathlon. The physically demanding day is fuelled by balanced nutrition care of Rosa Alpina’s quartet of restaurants, each offering seasonal and sustainable dining, whereas the spa team are on hand to assure relaxation and recovery in the evening, with revivifying deep-tissue massage treatments such as the Alpine Herbal Muscle Relief.
The Laguna Phuket Triathlon
The Laguna Phuket Triathlon is the longest-running race of its kind in Southeast Asia, drawing athletes from across the world to Thailand to experience one of the most beautiful courses in the sport, taking in a beachside run, a swim through both the Andaman Sea and a freshwater lagoon, and culminating with a challenging ride through the Phuket countryside and over the Naithon Hills. The Amanpuri team will take care of pre-race logistics, including transporting guests to the event site for race pack collection, bike registration and pre-race briefing.
Designed specifically for athletes competing in the race on 21 November, Amanpuri’s retreat is ideal for those seeking to ensure they reach the start line prepped and primed to perform. Beginning with a 3D body scan and a consultation with a physiotherapist, the stay incorporates event preparation activities including stretching sessions and guided practice bike rides along the event course, as well as opportunities to rest and recharge in the extensive hydrotherapy facilities, on the beach or in the Aman Wellness Centre.
