A cruise is a cruise is a cruise, unless it’s a cruise that has the potential to improve your clients’ well-being from the inside out: Explora Journeys has taken luxury to the next step with the introduction of Ocean Wellness on the EXPLORA I. A combination of effective, restorative experiences that will whisk your clients far, far away from their daily grind, the ship has over 1,000 sq. m. (10,764 sq. ft.) of space dedicated to treatments and wellness facilities including the Ocean Wellness – The Spa, indoor and outdoor wellness areas, modern fitness facilities, outdoor sports court and a running track.

Explora Combines Wellness and Luxury for Clients

Explora Journeys has availed itself of the neuroscience that has shown that the ocean calms the mind, revitalizes the body, and boosts immune function to create its new program that puts your clients in an Ocean State of Mind. 

There are 11 treatment rooms in the Ocean Wellness – The Spa, including two Private Spa Suites with their own outdoor relaxation area, one double and seven single treatment rooms, an additional treatment room dedicated to specialized Medi-Luxe Treatments by Dr. Levy Switzerland and an outdoor space in which guests can relax.

There is also a dedicated beauty studio for hair and nails and a Sensorial Therapeutic Circuit that includes a hydrotherapy pool, a steam room, a Finnish sauna, a salt cave, an experience shower, an ice fall and heated marble loungers.

“The philosophy behind Ocean Wellness is deeply rooted in Explora Journeys’ origins,” says Julanda Marais, senior lead spa operations, in a press statement. “We’ve long understood the powerful effect of water and waves on body, mind and soul. This is the inspiration for Ocean Wellness. We want to give our guests a feeling of refined simplicity, relaxed luxury, and complete mental and physical replenishment.”

Together with their partner brands, the program helps guests achieve inner and outer calm with a selection of initiatives that encompass everything from sleep to nutrition to physical fitness and yoga. The state-of-the-art fitness area includes 227 sq. m. (2,443 sq. ft.) of indoor space and more than 64 sq. m. (688 sq. ft.) of unparalleled outdoor fitness facilities, plus a sports court for half-court basketball as well as a panoramic running track and touch-tennis. Your clients will get an initial physical assessment and can indulge in everything from functional and strength training to cardio and Pilates in private sessions or group classes.

Consultations are tailor-made and include a bespoke nutrition program for your client created together with Explora Journeys’ culinary team. No dry power bars here!
