Cyprus is to become home to Europe’s first yoga resort. Zening Resort, set to open in spring, is the only resort in Europe that is completely dedicated to yoga, meditation and wellness.
The resort, run by the Healthy Holiday Company, is located at Elia Village on Chrysochous Bay Beach, a protected nature reserve. The multi-million pound eco resort will have 135 rooms and suites positioned around the resort’s 60 acres of garden, promising a unique Cyprus holiday experience.
Zening resort will also offer its guests the use of its ‘Zen Tea Rooms’, 3 yoga studios, 2 swimming pools and open air gym as well as the opportunity to go biking, kayaking and hiking. In addition to the 3 yoga studios there are five outdoor ‘yoga zones’ for guests wanting to enjoy the views of the resort's grounds.
“Zening Resorts offers the path to zen through an out-of -this-world holiday for body, mind and soul. It is a luxurious and upscale holiday destination too but it is more than just a holiday resort. It is the incarnation of a passionate vision for a meditative, soulful and healthy lifestyle,” said a spokesperson for the resort.
“Zening hosts dozens of workshops with Zen masters that guide individuals to explore the extraordinary potential that exists in each of us. The unique concept of yoga, meditation and natural therapies with balanced diet is devised to leave guests glowing inside and out.”
The adult only resort is also self sustainable and aims to have zero carbon footprint by 2015. The resort will open in May this year.
