This partnership will offer a transformational experience integrating health with wellbeing resulting in an extraordinary ‘vitality to life’.
“It is this vitality that provides the full strength of energy and harmony in life that must be reflected within us on a daily basis. Our partnership with M/Y NJORD provides residents and their families, friends and guests access to something that is beyond the world of spas. It is exclusive, immersive and most importantly a complete and distinct experience. The science behind Chenot combined with the services and lifestyle on the superyacht will lead to guests experiencing the absolute,” concludes Dr. Gaitanos.
Residents will be able to embark on their wellness routine while travelling, devoting important time to their health with bespoke holistic, dietary and physical treatments complemented by natural therapies to detox, de-stress, re-energise, reset and rebalance both body and mind.
