During the unprecedented times in which we currently live, it is more important than ever that we take care of ourselves, and each other. All around the world, people are being responsible and self-isolating. At Pullman Luang Prabang, we urge everyone to #StayHome.
But staying at home does not mean you need to stop living! There are many ways to stay fit and healthy without going out. Taking inspiration from our natural surroundings and most popular pastimes, Pullman Luang Prabang has created a series of tips and techniques for guests who want to keep their bodies and minds active.
Surrounded by jungle-clad hills, northern Laos is the ideal destination for people to come together, reunite and revive their bodies and minds. Until this can happen however, try taking part in our daily activities from the comfort of your home. And when life returns to normal, all guests are invited to take a rewarding Wellness Retreat at Pullman Luang Prabang.
Enjoy a Morning Yoga Class: One of the most popular guest activities at Pullman Luang Prabang is an invigorating morning yoga session on the resort’s rooftop, overlooking the lush landscaped gardens. If you’re confined to your home, try learning some simple yoga poses and stretching techniques in your garden, balcony or terrace – you are sure to feel more relaxed.
Create Your Own Organic Garden: Many guests like to take a stroll through Pullman Luang Prabang’s working farmstead, where local farmers use water buffalo to tend rice paddies and where Lao herbs, vegetables and tropical fruit are all grown onsite. You may not have 16 hectares of gardens, but you can still be organic – try planting your own seeds and watching them grow.
The resort’s expert chefs use our organically-grown produce and other sustainable ingredients to create delicious Lao cuisine. Why not go online and learn how to make a simple Lao dish, such as laab salad? Then, when you arrive at our resort, you can hone your skills with a cooking class and savour authentic dishes at L’Atelier, our lakeside restaurant.
Unwind with a Massage: The Pullman Spa is the perfect place to be pampered, with a wide range of soothing body treatments. We understand that not everyone is a trained massage therapist, but you could try giving your partner a simple foot massage. This is a wonderful way of connecting with your loved one while also helping you both to remain calm and relaxed.
Be Community Spirited: Most important of all in these uncertain times, we need to look out for each other. Pullman Luang Prabang supports a wide range of valuable CSR initiatives that transform the lives of local people, but even the smallest gestures can make a big difference. Just pick up the telephone and let someone know they’re not alone.
“At Pullman Luang Prabang, we understand this is a difficult time for everyone. It is vital that we all follow official advice and #StayHome. But life does not have to stop completely; this is a great opportunity to learn new skills, reconnect with loved ones and show support for your community. We will get through this situation together, and perhaps become a closer and kinder society afterwards. When live gets back to normal, Pullman Luang Prabang will be here to give guests a well-deserved vacation in the fresh, mountainous air northern Laos,” said Denis Dupart, the resort’s general manager.
