From Michelin-starred dinner to wellness masterclasses, Mandarin Oriental, Sanya is taking advantage of its natural surroundings by offering guests the opportunity to enjoy a unique retreat during this year’s National Day Holiday.

Enjoying year-round balmy weather, Mandarin Oriental, Sanya is a tropical sanctuary situated between the sparkling South China Sea and verdant hills. Ideally located for reclining, its stunning location has luxury travelers flocking to find spiritual bliss.

This autumn, the resort will be running a special National Day Holiday Wellness Retreat package, offering guests the chance to both unwind and indulge in gourmet delights at the same time.

From a  healing Singing Bowl class to restore equilibrium of mind, body and soul, led by Tibetan singing bowl healer Mayu Nishibe to a healthy gourmet cooking class, there’s plenty to partake in. Foodies will also have the opportunity to sample a nine-course tasting menu created by talented Michelin star Chef Stefan Stiller or savour Nyonya delicacies made by another guest chef, Muhammad Asaari bin Johari of Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur.

“We’re offering guests an opportunity to enjoy a wellness retreat at the resort over the National Day Holiday that focuses on five elements: Nourishment, Movement, Wellbeing, Stillness and Connections, which combine to help people relax, rejuvenate and recharge,” commented Eric Kee General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Sanya.

Idea for gourmands, chef Stiller has led several Michelin-starred restaurants and his Taian Table restaurant in Shanghai received a Michelin star in September 2016. From 1 to 3 October, Chef Stiller will be a special guest chef at the resort – presenting a nine-course tasting menu of seasonal dishes that diners can enjoy at Fresh, the refined outdoor beach restaurant.

For those looking to enjoy an authentic foodie experience, there’s also the chance to try an exciting culinary experience. Nyonya cooking is the blending of Chinese ingredients with spices and cooking techniques used by the Malay/Indonesian community. From 4 to 6 October, Chef Muhammad Asaari bin Johari from Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur will work with the resort’s culinary team to prepare authentic Nyonya dishes. Guests can choose from a la carte selections for lunch and dinner or opt for a special buffet dinner.
