With a hectic job and lifestyle I was in dire need for complete relaxation on a solo holiday. I found Bliss through Google so I emailed and within a few hours I had a reply. I am quite an inquisitive one and Zoe (The Owner) was more than happy to respond to all my queries in a very timely manner. I knew then this was the place for me.
On arrival to the airport it was great to have my personal driver Baguse there to pick me up. I arrived at the villa a bit exhausted and was greeted by Louise the hostess, who is amazing by the way! I was given a juice and some food and then we discussed what I wanted for the week and then had a massage. The only thing I could say here is that maybe the guests get a chance to freshen up themselves first before sitting down to talk about what the plan for the week is or have a massage.
No joke though by the next day I was already feeling very relaxed. The staff are great and would do anything for you. Food choice was fab, great little chefs! Baguse was always on hand to take you where you wanted to go which was great although really I hardly went out as I wanted to relax as much as possible and Wyanne, the beauty therapist was great! I don't think I've ever had massages every day for a week in my life!! You can also choose facials, mani/pedis, hair treatments, reflexology etc so you don't just have to have a massage but you get 90 min of treatment every day!! Zoe also brings all guests to Potato Head (fabulous bar) on Sunday for a few cocktails which was a treat. Your room is always made up both morning and evening with fresh sarongs and towels. The bedrooms are fab, spacious and beautiful with a gorgeous indoor/outdoor Zen bathroom.
I really did get what I wanted out of this week. A few things I'd improve would be to see prior to arrival if your guests wanted yoga onsite, there would be enough space for a small group as I felt although the yoga centre we went to was beautiful it was a class full of very experienced yoga people who were staying at that yoga resort. It would of been nice to have just other guests at bliss being able to do a few classes that week together at a different more relaxed level. Also I do feel that Sammy the healer should be included in the package for one session and any other sessions would be extra then. Wether this happens or not though you should have at least one session with hom, your hostess will organise this for you. be prepared for listening to him about what is worong with your health and how you can fix it, I've taken on board what he has said and already feeling the difference.
Thanks for all the staff especially Louise for making this a wonderful trip for me. I'd highly recommend this for any woman wanted time out on her own in a beautiful relaxed setting!!
