Experience Nature as Therapy with AYUS WELLNESS JOURNEYS
It’s been shown that deep wellness begins with wonderment and that a primary way to foster wonder is through residing in wilderness. Huge outdoor canvases are open to exploration on the new Ayus wellness journeys, which immerses guests in the magnificent beauty of Malaysian Borneo’s Mulu primeval rainforest.
While guests abound in the UNESCO World Heritage site, soaking up indigenous know-how in nature, nutrition and healing, three signature journeys target specific needs. Anti-ageing and Vitality boosts immunity and rejuvenation; Clarity and Peace of Mind reduces stress and restores mental and physical balance; Energy and Strength has its focus in rainforest and ancient cave fitness and Peaceful Sleep draws on Eastern and Western methods to enhance rest.
Not everything is rugged and outdoors. Ayus operates from the Mulu Marriott Resort and Spa’s luxurious five-star resort, offering levels of comfort that are by themselves restorative. The unique combination provides enough exposure to inspire wonderment and all its benefits – a way beyond everyday ways of seeing and thinking. Call it nature’s way to rewire the brain.
