Here are some of the many reviews, articles, and Top Lists that have featured us in leading international publications around Asia and the USA.
SHANGHAI DAILY, "Retreat From Urban Stress in a Calming, Healthy Environment" , April 26, 2017
"I took a walk after breakfast, enjoying utter tranquility and a mind cleared of clutter. Birds, butterflies and bees fluttered around me. I felt part of nature.... The four days at Museflower were certainly an eye-opening experience. I found I enjoyed the simple lifestyle, which revealed to me how we humans clutter our lives with things that we don’t need to find happiness. After returning to Shanghai, I can still feel the benefits of nature in my body and soul."
YOGA JOURNAL SINGAPORE, "Connecting with My Inner Self at Museflower Retreat & Spa", January 11, 2017
"That was quite a lot of reflection, learning and insight in three days! In this quiet, peaceful resort, I was able to listen to myself, my internal struggle and my inner wisdom as well. The help from the therapists, resource persons and fellow guests was the icing on the cake."
THE BANGKOK POST, "Holistic Festival", September 26, 2016
"This is an opportunity to celebrate healing and wellness with guests from Hong Kong and the US, as well as local attendees from Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai. Discover and try different wellness modalities and learn about new alternative therapies."
ASIASPA HK & SEA, “Thailand’s Top 10 Yoga & Wellness Retreats”, Sept/Oct 2016
"No 1. Museflower is Chiang Rai’s first and leading professional wellness center and features Thailand’s first Himalayan crystal salt all-natural swimming pool (no chlorine). Offering a Hatha-focused yoga retreat, programmes are tailored for the individual depending on length of stay."
HK MAGAZINE, “12 AsianDetox Holidays to Clear Your Body & Mind”, July 20, 2016
“Museflower Retreat and Spa Chiang Rai will sweep your feet off with its vegetarian cleansing excursion. Be amazed by the healing power of water in the world’s first Hado counseling outside Japan … Want to be knee-deep into this green and health-conscious lifestyle? Just book a room, which is inclusive of three lacto-ovo vegetarian buffet meals per day and daily fitness classes".
SPAFINDER USA, “Can You Rebalance Negative Energy?”, June 30, 2016
“How’s your bio-energetic state? Did you know that the body can store negative energies that affect your health? Hado Counseling, a fairly new contemporary holistic therapy, and up until now was only available in Japan, where it originated, can scan, measure and offer a solution to help rebalance negative energies in your body. Museflower Retreat & Spa Chiang Rai in northern Thailand is the world’s first retreat and spa to offer Hado Counseling outside Japan in English. Hado counseling sessions are given by Museflower founder and owner Tania Ho."
SASSY HONG KONG, "Reconnect and Recharge in Chiang Rai", May 2016
“I left Museflower feeling noticeably calmer, lighter (not just in body but in spirit!) and focused. When I got back to Hong Kong, friends and colleagues even commented on how ‘refreshed’ I looked! I’m not someone who is super into holistic practices, but I genuinely walked away with a new perspective and outlook. I’ve taken on board some of the things that I learnt and I’ve even found that they have had a positive effect on my daily life.”
THE NEW STRAITS TIMES MALAYSIA,“Retreat to Wellness”, May 5, 2016
“Museflower Retreat & Spa is an alternative to the southern islands for health holidays. This simple but comfortable all-cottage escape, with a team of high calibre therapists, takes sublime treatments to the forefront of the experience … The self-contained hideaway is the brainchild of Tania Ho. The Hong Kong native, formerly with The Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental and the highly-acclaimed Six Senses Spa chain, has embarked on a new frontier of value-driven health-wellness holiday.”
THE SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST, SUNDAY MAGAZINE, “A Hong Konger’s Affordable Holistic Wellness Retreat”,May 1, 2016
"What's the food like? Heavenly. If you love fresh organic vegetarian food, then you're unlikely to find anything better than this. All chef Somphop Sakulchart needs to do is nip over to his organic farm and pick whatever he needs, be it salad ingredients, vegetables, mushrooms or herbs. Simple, healthy food is served buffet style, with plenty of raw salads and soups. The chef's enthusiasm for his garden is infectious and, if you ask him nicely, he'll allow you to accompany him to pick out your own duck eggs."
YOGA JOURNAL USA,”Yoga Retreats You can Actually Afford”, February 17, 2016
“The best part about booking a yoga retreat at Museflower is that you can do it on your own terms … Each holistic retreat package - whether it’s three, five, or seven days—includes two daily Hatha yoga classes, all organic vegetarian farm-to-table meals, and a massage. Amenity not to miss: the Himalayan crystal salt pool. You’ll stay in lakeside cottages surrounded by misty hills and have easy access to hill tribe villages, cultural excursions to temples and bazaars, and even elephant-trekking tours.
THE BANGKOK POST, “Wellness Among the Chiang Rai Hills”, December 22, 2015
“In the early mornings, the kitchen crew gathers fresh produce after stopping at the adjacent duck pond to collect fresh eggs. The meat-free meals are dished out next to the spa at the Soul Food Corner and are prepared with a combination of grown-on-site and locally-sourced food. Museflower makes vegetarianism work with Thai-inspired clean cuisine, minus the piles of salt and sugar.”
THE STRAITS TIMES SINGAPORE, “Retreat to Nature”, December 6, 2015
“The meal is simple, but it is one of the best vegetarian meals I have had. The salad is fresh and crisp; the fried rice is fragrant and with not a hint of greasiness. Even the deep-fried bean curd skin does not leave any traces of oil on my fingers.”
TRAVEL DAILY ASIA,“Unique Wellness Resort Opens in Chiang Rai”, October 6, 2015
“Museflower Retreat & Spa offers a series
of wellness “firsts” in Thailand…such as Thailand’s first Himalayan
crystal salt pool and northern Thailand’s first ozonized outdoor pool, heated
by solar power… also the first venue outside Japan to offer Japanese “Hado”
counseling sessions, which measure a person’s bio-energetic state and the
negative vibrations that affect a person’s health.”
