Unique eco-friendly retreat
The Glass House is an environmentally friendly wellness destination with solar panels, a ground source heat pump and rain water recycling technology. Plus, it's been specially designed to promote wellness with floor-toceiling windows, which let in a flood of natural light and give the Glass House its name. If you want to digitally detox, there are special safes in every room - but fear not, there's high-speed wifi if you don't.
Nutrition is at the heart of the Glass House, and head chef Miguel Gouveia, a raw food pioneer, uses only the finest organic and seasonal fruit and veg, nuts and grains. All meals are included and there's a choice of three specialist plant-based diets all containing low-cholesterol hearthealthy dishes that aid detox, weight loss and digestion. Rich in vitamins and minerals, they're also high in fibre and largely unprocessed. There's also a cookery school where you can learn how to make delicious healthy meals at home.
A groundbreaking treatment, cryotherapy is popular with top athletes for soothing muscle injuries and, at the Glass House, you can experience it for yourself. The cryotherapy chamber will expose your body to extreme cold and help combat the signs of ageing by boosting cellular regeneration. It can also aid weight loss by encouraging fat burning.
Use of the spa and facilities
Guests can enjoy full use of the wellness facilities, including he 12-metre indoor heated swimming pool, Himalayan salt block sauna and steam room and exercise studio and gym, plus you'll receive a voucher to spend on spa treatments from expert Elemis therapists.
