Calling lady golfers! Revitalise your game & mind with a trip to Giardino Ascona in Switzerland
Giardino Hotels (www.giardino.ch/en and @giardinohotels) has created an interesting concept for ladies: a winning combination of golf and Ayurvedic treatments that help revitalize both game and mind. Guests stay at the luxurious Giardino Ascona (www.giardino-ascona.ch), which is a few minutes’ walk from Lake Maggiore in Switzerland and right next door to the 18-hole Golf Club Patriziale Ascona.
The hotel recently set up a dedicated Ayurvedic medicine centre, with a team of naturopathic practitioners, yoga and meditation teachers as well as nutritionists who have created a programme specifically for European tastes using locally sourced herbs and spices.
The Ayurveda Ladies Golf package offers rounds at the highly-regarded Golf Club Patriziale Ascona, a tree-lined parkland layout with direct access from Giardino Ascona’s gardens, and at the nearby 18-hole championship course at Golf Club Gerre Losone, as well as a personal check-up with respected golf physiotherapist, Cornelia Albrecht.
Also included are Ayurvedic treatments, yoga in the mornings and a specially-created half-board Ayurvedic menu that aims to improve the holistic well-being of guests. These elements are all part of the “Ayurveda by Giardino” programme, which aims to regenerate and strengthen the body through the Indian healing science of Ayurveda; it also teaches guests how to face life with a strong and conscientious mind, thus helping golfers to optimise their skills and mental approach out on the course.
The cost of the Ayurvedic Golf Package, which is available exclusively from 1 to 5 October, starts from CHF 1,799 per person. It includes:
• 4 nights at the Hotel Giardino Ascona on a half-board Ayurvedic menu
• 3 green fees at the Golf Club Patriziale Ascona and at the Golf Club Gerre Losone
• 2 Ayurvedic treatments: 1 Pristabhyanga (an intensive back massage)
& 1 Abhyanga (a relaxing and rejuvenating full body massage)
• 1 personal check-up with golf-physiotherapist Cornelia Albrecht
• Yoga lessons in the morning
