Singapore, Dec 2020 - Even though travel restrictions are slowly lifting in phases, the possibility of leisure travel is very much still shrouded with uncertainty. Acknowledging that it might take years for international travel to fully recover, bespoke retreat maker Anaya Soul Retreat is transforming its special programmes into mini-retreats on a megayacht for those who are seeking a much-needed respite or are craving a taste of escape.
“Day-cation” is the new Staycation
Do you fancy going somewhere but dread long hotel staycations with no fixed itinerary? Do you find it hard to spare large pockets of time for a break? Are you in search of a unique activity to do with your significant other that does not consume the entire day? Anaya Soul Retreat’s “Magick” mini-retreat is the perfect “Day-cation” for the time-strapped.
Let the experts at Anaya—the masters at crafting one-of-a-kind, holistic retreat experience—do the heavy lifting as they whisk you away for a few hours in a day to recharge the mind, body, and soul.
What is an Anaya Retreat? Embarking on an Anaya retreat is all about escaping everyday life and taking time to focus on one’s self—be it a cleansing detox session or yoga to rebalance energies. It offers one the chance to reflect and learn healthy lifestyle practices. Anaya retreats are centred around improving health and self-confidence with the intentions to heal and rejuvenate through spa therapies and wellness activities. Popular amongst solo travellers, Anaya also conducts group retreats which include a host of group activities, classes, and healthy cooking classes, where singles are able to meet like-minded individuals. Anaya offers four uniquely different “Magicks” (not to be confused with the occult or performance magic) or retreat programmes:
“Nature Magick”- Grasp the power of nature Harness the magical and healing power of nature with Anaya through this retreat. Be introduced to the magicks of nature. Learn to establish a sacred space for your wellness practice. Discover the tools that can enhance the potency of your practice, such as candles, herbs, and crystals. Create energy-infused oils and charms which can be imbued with energies for various blessings, such as wealth, luck, safety, and more. A grounding ritual will also be performed to remind participants to stay grateful for the blessings that nature has provided.
“Kitchen Magick”- Wellness starts from the Kitchen They say the kitchen is the heart of the home. Invite magick into yours by exploring what the humble kitchen can do for you. Learn to grow, store, and utilise herbs for your cooking and restorative needs. Get familiar with the healing properties of common kitchen herbs and prepare various remedies such as herbal rubs, ointments and infusions. Do away with synthetic chemicals and learn to make cleaning products from natural and organic kitchen ingredients that are safe for you and your family. From harvesting to preparation, the Kitchen Magick Retreat will walk you through various uses of the magical yet familiar ingredient.
“Candle-making Magick”- A perfect couple activity
Candle making can be a fun and exciting activity for friends and couples. Not only do candles make great gifts, but they are also perfect for infusing touches of personality to your home decor. Learn the basics of candle craft with wicks and waxes of various types as well as the safety precautions you need to keep your workspace safe. This retreat will engage all your senses and your creativity as you craft your own Korean-style floral pillar candles, wax diffusers, container candles, and wax melt as you blend colours and aromas to create your own masterpiece.
*NEW* “Goddess Retreat”- A beautifying experience fitfor the ladies
A new programme to Anaya’s itinerary, participants can also take makeover classes conducted by Mediacorp’s ex-makeup unit supervisor, Cheryl Zhang who will be sharing trade beauty secrets and master tips in skincare and makeup. After getting your glam on, the yacht transforms into the perfect backdrop for a professional photo shoot which will be specially prepared for you.

Wellness group Anaya was founded on the belief that travel can be an effective means of promoting health and wellbeing through physical, psychological, or spiritual activities. Just as the Arabic roots of the word “Anaya” means care and protection, the Group is focused on offering holistic wellness travel solutions for the mind, body, and soul via their business entities— Anaya Soul Retreat, a bespoke retreat maker, and their Bintan property Anaya Nature Resort. Established first in 2018, the Group has gone on to offer one-of-a-kind retreat programmes for many high net-worth individuals and corporate clients such as V-Key and Prudential in Asia.
