HEALTHOUSE LAS DUNAS
Located on the shores of southern Spain, just 15 minutes from Marbella, this adult only health retreat, Healthouse Las Dunas, has recently completed a €12 million makeover and attracts clientele from far and wide to learn about a healthier and more active lifestyle. Whether guests are looking to complete a weight loss, anti-ageing, quit smoking, de-stress or general detox programme, the experienced team are able to tailor make a personalised plan ranging from a weekend away, a week’s detox or month’s regime.
Health and wellbeing are at the epicentre of what Healthouse Las Dunas offers its guests and whilst fitness and specially formulated spa treatments are key to each programme, the retreat also prides itself on its gastronomy, not least with the appointment of world famous chef – Andoni Luis Aduriz, a two Michelin starred chef of renowned restaurant Mugaritz in northern Spain. Andoni has created a menu which changes weekly and no one day will ever be the same. Guests are assessed on arrival and are then put on a specific calorie controlled diet according to their stats. Dishes are created without the use of sugar or salt and no alcohol is served on the premises.
Upon arrival, guests undertake a full medical check-up including blood and urine tests to check for issues that may be causing weight problems such as insulin resistance and thyroid complications. The retreat also uses cutting-edge DEXA machines to check for fat, muscle and bone density levels, which can identify where fat is stored in the body and more importantly check for the initial stages of osteoporosis. Once these have been completed a personalised plan is devised and each guest is gifted a FitBit to record daily activity.
