The Ranch Malibu Brings Wellness Retreats to the Italian Dolomites in 2018

The Ranch Malibu Brings Wellness Retreats to the Italian Dolomites in 2018
Known for transformational four-, seven- and ten-day health programs, The Ranch is hosting the experience at the famed Hotel Rosa Alpina, offering six weekly sessions, exclusively running from August 19th - September 29th, 2018 in the breathtaking setting. The Ranch Dolomites also marks The Ranch’s first overseas expansion of the award-winning California-based fitness program.

Modeled after The Ranch Malibu’s 7-day experience, which combines an intense fitness regimen with a highly structured, plant-based nutritional diet, The Ranch Dolomites will be limited to just 20 participants each week and immerse guests in the natural splendor of the Italian mountain landscape. Under the guidance of experienced Ranch staff and local Italian hiking guides, mornings will be spent hiking the majestic mountains of this UNESCO Natural World Heritage site. Centered in San Cassiano and near Cortina, the hundreds of miles of trails offer breathtaking views of the picturesque countryside, emerald-green meadows, mountain lakes, waterfalls, the Alps and the jagged peaks of the Dolomites. Afternoons will be filled with fitness programming including strength training, yoga, meditation and with daily massages.

“After visiting the Dolomites for the first time this fall, we instantly knew this picturesque region would make the perfect backdrop for our wellness program and help further share our wellness philosophy to an international clientele,” said Alex Glasscock, Founder and CEO of The Ranch. “It is an honor to work with Hotel Rosa Alpina on this exciting expansion. With an immaculate reputation in the hospitality industry, their intimate environment, combined with five-star service, is the perfect fit for our guests’ comforts and program culture.”

Staying at the famed Hotel Rosa Alpina, guests will enjoy rooms that have been individually designed with a unique and authentic Alpine style. The rooms are complete with luxurious touches and include separate tubs and showers in the bathroom and views of the stunning Dolomite mountain range. To complement the active schedule, The Ranch culinary team will collaborate with the Rosa Alpina team to serve a nutritional menu of locally grown plant-based fare, ensuring guests are energized throughout their stay. Guests may enjoy Italian favorites such as spinach and zucchini lasagna with homemade macadamia nut “ricotta” cheese, pizza with a cauliflower crust and mushroom ragu served over polenta.
Like The Ranch Malibu and The Ranch 4.0, guests will leave with measurable results, improved physical endurance, boosted metabolism, loss of fat and inches and a relaxed and clarified mind.

The weekly rate of $8,500/per person includes 6 nights and 7 days (Sunday-Saturday) of daily guided hikes, fitness and exercise classes, daily massages, private accommodations for each guest, all meals and some evening elective nutrition talks and an afternoon cooking demonstration.
