The Mauritius Wellness Festival owned and organised by Heritage Resorts, is the first of its kind on the island and in the region, and was held at the Heritage C Beach Club in Bel Ombre, Mauritius from 3rd-5th May 2019.
The festival embraced wellness in connection with nature, with many activities taking place in the most iconic landmarks of the wild South of Mauritius such as Le Morne (UNESCO World Heritage site), Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth and Black River Gorges National Park.
Attended by International wellness leaders along with other local experts it offered yoga, breathing, meditation, nutrition classes, inspirational talks and workshops, and ’nature connection’ outings. The festival was aimed at awakening all five senses – touch, sound, smell, sight and taste through music, dancing, cooking, art and other media.
Other features of the festival included a relaxation zone, music corners, artists areas, healthy food stations, evening music festival by local bands with local instruments, as well as access to the beach and pools.
Feedback from guests suggested that the Wellness Festival was made extra special by the unique Mauritian culture and the people involved, with their strong sense of hospitality and kindness, which made the event a highly emotional human experience. The richness of the programme, the location in the wilder and unspoilt South of the island, and the fact that guests could tailor the programme to their own requirements, were also praised.
“The Mauritius Wellness Festival was a celebration of nature and an incredible journey for the mind, body and soul” said international expert Hannah Barrett, a leading London-based yoga instructor who led some of the yoga sessions including one at Le Morne.
“Set on the idyllic island of Mauritius the variety of classes, workshops, nature experiences and seminars were really impressive. I am so grateful I was part of the team and the memories from the nature experiences will truly stay with me for a lifetime.”
Throughout the year guests at Heritage Le Telfair can enjoy Sunset Yoga and Forest Bathing in the Heritage Nature Reserve, Breathing Workshops, Meditation, Tai Chi and Qi-Gong. There is also a programme of specialist workshops held by international Wellness experts.
