Move aside, honeymooners, Salt Escapes are moving in.
The Maldives are made up of a string of tropical islands - called atolls - floating in the Indian Ocean, southwest of Sri Lanka. 

The islands are known for their never-ending turquoise blue waters, and reefs teeming with marine life, making them one of the ultimate destinations for water sports and adventures. 

We’ll stay on one of the smaller islands of the Maldives in Anantara's Veli Resort. This luxury resort is adults-only, and offers a spa, tennis courts, incredible restaurants and an unrivalled number of water activities. 

On this 6 night Escape, you’ll stay in your own private overwater bungalow, where you'll wake up to infinite ocean views, just steps away from powdery white sand. There’s no better base for a week of training, exploring and relaxing in one of the world’s most beautiful destinations. 

The team at Anantara Veli have designed a special menu for us, so we’ll enjoy group breakfasts and dinners together, and get a taste of the islands best food. We’ll work up a sweat with our daily morning workouts, unwind together with some yoga, and you can while away the afternoons surfing, diving, snorkelling, or kicking back with a book in a hammock.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHAT IS THE COVID CANCELLATION POLICY?

If WE have to cancel the trip because of travel bans/border restrictions etc, then you have the following options:

  • Transfer any funds you have already paid to any future Escape with us (within the next 3 years), or
  • Request a refund. Obviously as a small travel business it goes without saying that we would be enormously grateful if you chose to transfer your booking instead of requesting a refund, but we’d be happy to honour your request.


If YOU have to cancel the trip because of issues with local lockdown restrictions, positive test preventing you from travelling, etc, and the trip is still going ahead, then you will need to make a claim with your travel insurance provider.

This is because if indeed there are some form of local lockdown restrictions still in place, these are likely to affect only a few individuals joining the trip.

With guests joining us from different parts of the world, all with different rules/restrictions it is extremely difficult for us to provide a comprehensively flexible policy that would cover everyone.

As an aside, you will need to have travel insurance to attend any of our trips. We would recommend that for the time being your travel insurance should also cover you for the following:

  • Positive COVID test preventing you from travelling
  • Local restrictions preventing you from travelling

Can I come on this Escape by myself?

Yes! Travelling alone is surely one of the best ways to meet new people.

Select the Single Occupancy Overwater Bungalow to book your own private room and get ready to meet a whole bunch of new friends.

For this Escape we do not offer Share Rooms.

What is the age range of guests?

The majority of our guests are in their 20's and 30's, but for this Escape we welcome everyone over 18.

Will I get any ‘free' time?

Absolutely! We will always schedule down time in our daily itinerary for you to chill, head to the beach or explore the local area. Remember it’s your trip, and you’re very welcome to head off for a day exploring by yourself. If you’d like any recommendations or suggestions, just ask one of the team.

I have special dietary requirements - will you be able to cater for this?

Yes. After booking, we liaise with all the guests and help our chefs to design a menu that has plenty of options for all.

What is the food like?

We expect you to be training hard in the workouts, so we’ll make sure you have plenty of food to refuel! We’re all about a balanced approach to food so expect tables full of fresh, nutritious meals that we’ll enjoy together (plus the odd treat).

Our Chefs use fresh, local produce, and where possible, give you a taste of the local cuisine. We can cater to all dietary requirements so just make sure we’re clued up before your trip.

What level of fitness do I need to be at? Do I need to be super fit to come?

We always accommodate a variety of fitness levels, and there will be lots of down time for you to relax and recover from the workouts. We programme each workout to allow you to work to your own abilities & pace, and Coaches are always on hand to provide modifications to exercises if required. It’s your choice as to whether you participate in each workout, but we’d always encourage you to get involved in as much as possible, challenge yourself for the week, and see what you’re capable of! Remember, it is a fitness retreat after all.

WHAT SORT OF WORKOUTS CAN I EXPECT ON MY ESCAPE?

The Coaches on your trip will programme as much variety as possible in the format, style & location of each of the workouts throughout the week. You can expect different training techniques such as functional strength movements, plyometric bodyweight movements and endurance training, boxing, HIIT circuits and our legendary finishers!

I have some injuries. Will I still be able to participate?

On every Escape, we have some guests with niggles or injuries, so we're used to accommodating for this! For most of the workouts we are able to provide alterations, progressions & regressions so that you can get the most out of our sessions. And remember, you can always join in to as much or as little as you wish.

TESTIMONIALS


"Fantastic week with top tier trainers, diverse individual and team-based work-outs along with wholesome/high-quality restaurant grade food to fuel you through the sessions (seconds encouraged). Plenty to do away from exercise (boat trips, downtime etc) and left feeling much fitter and stronger as well as surprisingly refreshed."

- Sam S

"Incredible week in October in Zakynthos. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a challenging but fun week of pushing workouts, recovery yoga and unbelievable food. Amazing villa with pool, tennis etc. Amy and Mike running it were brilliant."

- Chris R

"Salt Escapes was hands down one of the best weeks of not only my summer but my life. The workouts, people and trainers were all unreal. It was great fun from start to finish. Varied workouts, all the staff really approachable and knowledgeable in fitness. You come away feeling refreshed and with new friends for life. It’s a must do if you ask me 🙌"

"WHAT A TRIP. Salt Escapes is the perfect balance of high quality fitness, nutritious meals, expert instruction and pure luxury. Mike, Amy and the team were incredibly accommodating to all levels of fitness and they went out of their way to ensure the experience was the highest of quality. I can not recommend this enough. See you in 2020."

"One of the best weeks of my life! I laugh now when I think how nervous I was when booking it! The hotel in Marrakesh was stunning, Amy & Mike made me feel so welcome and the crew were all amazing (no matter how many burpees they made me do!). Every workout was super sweaty and WHAT A VIEW! The team kept us energised and I’ve made so many wonderful friendships. Will definitely be booking again for next year!"
