REVĪVŌ: A Holistic
Approach to Wellness

REVĪVŌ Wellness Resort is a haven of well-being, offering tailored retreats aimed at nurturing self-awareness and mindfulness, guiding its guests on a journey toward profound mind-body transformation. The resort provides a variety of wellness programs, inspired by local ancient healing traditions, to address specific emotional, physical, and mental health conditions. Within the wellness retreats at REVĪVŌ Wellness Resort, these holistic treatments prioritize the concepts of "healing," mindfulness, and self-awareness, rather than focusing solely on the treatment of particular illnesses or injuries.

INTERVIEW

Meet Sofyan Hadi,
Resort Manager at Revivo Wellness Resort

WHAT IS YOUR STORY IN HOSPITALITY?

"I began my career in the hospitality industry at the Ritz-Carlton. Over the years, I've had the opportunity to work at various hotels in Bali, including Karma Kandara, Aman Resort, Westin Resort, and many others. However, I'm currently embarking on a new chapter in my career by joining a wellness resort for the first time."

WHAT IS YOUR POSITION AT REVĪVŌ WELLNESS RESORT AND WHAT IS YOUR DAY-TO-DAY WORK?

"I serve as the General Manager at REVĪVŌ Wellness Resort Bali, where my primary responsibility is to ensure our guests' comfort and enjoyment throughout their stay. REVĪVŌ distinguishes itself from traditional hotels by offering a holistic journey that commences from the moment our guests wake up and continues until they retire for the night. Mornings start with a trio of healthy shots designed to detoxify the liver and prepare the digestive system for the day ahead. We also provide a range of cultural immersion activities, such as meetings with local priests and Balinese prayers, alongside wellness activities like yoga and cardio sessions, including TRX, Muay Thai, and hammock yoga. In the afternoons, following a nourishing lunch, we offer meditation sessions and relaxing spa treatments to help our guests unwind. As the day comes to a close, we have a program called Nocturno, dedicated to enhancing our guests' sleep hygiene and ensuring a restful night's sleep. These rituals represent just a few of the many experiences we offer at REVĪVŌ, and it is my duty to ensure that everything runs seamlessly during our guests' stay."

WHAT IS THE STORY OF REVĪVŌ?

"The founder of REVĪVŌ, who has also created other remarkable properties, inquired whether there were any wellness resorts in Bali. At that time, none existed, prompting her to ponder, 'Why don't we establish one in Nusa Dua?' This choice made perfect sense, given Nusa Dua's tranquil atmosphere. Consequently, we embarked on the journey of building this wellness resort in collaboration with our former CEO. The name REVĪVŌ signifies 'to live again.' When guests stay with us, we aim to provide them with an educational journey that leads to a transformative experience. Our mission is to help guests shed unhealthy habits and adopt a healthier way of life."

COULD YOU PLEASE SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY AT REVĪVŌ?

"In terms of sustainability, REVĪVŌ adheres to a strict no-plastic policy, utilizes solar panels for energy generation, and operates a water treatment plant. In addition, we are committed to responsible waste management, carefully segregating our waste and composting all organic kitchen waste, which we later use as fertilizer to nurture our permaculture garden."

COULD YOU PLEASE SHARE MORE ABOUT YOUR WELLNESS TREATMENTS? AND HOW DO YOU SEE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN WELLNESS AND SUSTAINABILITY?

"At REVĪVŌ, we offer six signature programs and a total of 60 diverse treatments at the resort. Among these, our top three programs include Emotional Balance & Mind Training, Detox and Weight Loss, and the Immune Reset Program. When it comes to the relationship between sustainability and these wellness programs, we focus on maintaining the environmental sustainability of our surroundings while assisting individuals in achieving personal well-being and social fulfillment. Achieving mental and physical equilibrium is a multifaceted challenge, and our goal is to ensure our guests' happiness and contentment by nurturing a harmonious mind-body balance. We believe that achieving this balance contributes to a healthier environment for one's body, and this is the message we convey to our guests. Through programs like Emotional Balance and Mind Training, Detox and Weight Loss, and Immune Reset, we educate and guide them toward a holistic sense of well-being. Furthermore, what sets us apart from typical hotels is our extensive range of programs, including the 60 treatments available at our resort. This diversity is what makes us a sustainable and comprehensive health and wellness destination."
