Aidan O’Brien would like to run dual 2000 Guineas winner Gleneagles in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville next weekend. The three-year-old was a late defector from the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood as the ground was not deemed fast enough and any rain in the lead up to the race would see him staying at home. The Galileo colt holds an entry in the 10-furlong Juddmonte International at York but he has not yet raced over anything further than a mile. “We are looking at Deauville (Prix Jacques le Marois) and will be watching the weather forecast this week. If they don’t get rain we will look hard at going there,” said O’Brien. “He was ready to run in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood and is in good form.” Press Association

Go back to the e-newsletterSetting a new standard for wellness retreats in Asia, resort REVĪVŌ will be opening on 30 March 2018 on three hectares of land in Bali.Meaning “I’ll live again”, the concept of REVĪVŌ is to soothe the spirit and rejuvenate the body through enriching the mind with a complete journey including relaxation activities, spa and holistic medicine treatments, and a personalised nutritional program. The resort will offer 16 Balinese-style suites, including two four-bedroom villas that can be booked for more exclusive retreats, a restaurant, bar and poolside lounge, spa, hybrid fitness area and events space.Located amid the hills of Nusa Dua in south Bali, REVĪVŌ will be surrounded by teak forest, dense tropical rainforest and the Indian Ocean to help decompress from bustling city life. The resort will offer programs based on each individual’s needs, with the goal of achieving holistic healing through mind training and self-awareness, as opposed to treating specific illness or injuries.While each retreat can be tailor-made to suit individual goals, there will be a regular schedule of immersive programs lead by experts in each area, which will range in duration from three to 14 days long.This will include:Emotional balance and mind trainingDetox and organic weight lossSleep wellAnti-ageing & longevityDestress and relaxMother-to-beFitness will be a key component of each retreat, which REVĪVŌ will incorporate through a hybrid fitness area located on 8000 square metres towards the rear of the resort. The area will comprise a yoga barn, a martial arts hall, a reformer Pilates studio, a gym with TRX, boxing and kinesis equipment, a 25-metre-long lap pool for aqua workouts and a 1500-square-metre landscaped park for outdoor exercises. The fitness offering will focus on hybrid workouts, with as much emphasis placed on inspiration as perspiration. There will be a balance between the more intensive Yang – with heart-pumping HIIT sessions – and the softer Yin – with yoga and other gentler meditative and restorative practices like Qi Gong and meditation – to simultaneously cultivate physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. From group classes to private sessions or teacher trainings, the experience will be customisable to support unique fitness and wellness goals.The food and beverage program will be equally important and will comprise a restaurant, a bar, and a poolside lounge, each of which will operate under the philosophy of serving fresh, wholesome, organic and balanced meals for guests. Each venue will serve food and drinks as close to their natural state as possible, with a mission to sharpen and delight tastebuds, while continuously supporting health. Designed by REVĪVŌ’s creative nutritionist chef, Aliwalu, the menus will offer a selection of healthy recipes made with seasonal ingredients that will be adapted to suit each guest’s nutritional needs. The focus will be on high-protein dishes, which have a balanced amount of healthy fats, are low in carbs and free from gluten – with a Balinese twist. Using organic ingredients, REVĪVŌ aims to support local farmers, sustainable agriculture and environmentally friendly products, with no additives, preservatives or refined or processed ingredients in any of the dishes.The third component of REVĪVŌ is the holistic spa, which will bring together Balinese healing traditions, aroma-, hydro- and chromotherapies and facilities to nurture the body and achieve overall wellbeing and balance. The spa will stay true to the age-old tradition of using elements from the surrounding environments to heal; each treatment, massage and body and facial treatment will be customised by skilled therapists using herbal-infused oils, aromas and massage techniques. The spa will comprise five double treatment rooms, each with their own outdoor bath, and will feature two hydro-jet Vichy shower beds, hot and chill plunge pools, a Jacuzzi, infrared saunas, steam rooms, changing rooms, an aromatic garden and a saltwater floating pool set amid tropical greenery.“We are thrilled to be opening the first resort of REVĪVŌ in Bali, to meet the increasing demand for rejuvenating, mindful travel. We truly believe that the holistic wellness offering, led by a team of experts in their respective fields, will raise the bar for a new level of luxury retreat in Asia,” said Gordon Oldham, founder, REVĪVŌ.Bali will be the first location for REVĪVŌ Wellness Resorts. It will soon be followed by REVĪVŌ Wellness Cruise, Komodo Islands, in early 2019 and REVĪVŌ Château de Fiac, France in mid-2019.Go back to the e-newsletter
