If you're tired of the classic booze-fuelled hen do and you're more yogi than dancing queen then 1711 Ti Sana Detox Retreat is the perfect antidote.
The family-run retreat is hidden away in the tiny Italian village of Arlate, just an hour from Milan and a stone throw from Lake Como. Despite being super easy to reach it feels a million miles from everywhere; ideal for serious relaxation.
We tried out one of the many packages Ti Sana offers - the 3-day mini detox and loved it.
The 'Healthetarian' menu is a delicious and nutritious mix of vegan, homegrown, seasonal goodness. With three meals a day and two snacks, we didn't go hungry. The staff members are attentive, discrete and incredibly knowledgeable; quiz them about the in-room eco beauty products and see!
The Ti Sana philosophy recognises us as individuals and tailors your stay according to a prescribed health program based on a super sophisticated examination (BIA and Tomex tests for those in the know) with Mario, the resident personal trainer and food technician.
The rest of the time is your own to enjoy. Our highlight was without a doubt the award-winning spa. Not only do they have one of the most extensive treatment lists we have ever seen but the setting is breathtaking too: it is set in the caves under the stunning 16th century buildings.
For those who fancy being a little more active, guests have the option of yoga, fitness classes and leisurely long walks in the surrounding Italian countryside.
You and your maids will adore the luxurious setting, and you'll love the way your final fitting goes even more!
