Fans of this summer’s Eat, Pray, Love movie will soon be able to experience a reinvention of their own, with the help of several hotel packages themed around the movie.
Eat, Pray, Love, which stars Julia Roberts, sees writer Elizabeth Gilbert go on an epic journey of self-discovery through Italy, India and Indonesia.
Four Seasons Bali is offering a four night package which sends visitors to two different resorts, the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay and the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan.
Guests will spend two nights at each property and enjoy a personal consultant with Ketut Liyer, the medicine man who inspired the book after his meeting with Elizabeth Gilbert and the subsequent film.
Guests booking the USD$3,000 "Bali, Pray, Love" packages will also receive a free day with a personal concierge in one of Four Seasons’ Milan, Florence or Mumbai hotels, to guide them around the city seeing churches, markets and restaurants of Italy on their next vacation.
The package also includes Balinese cooking courses, Balinese massage and transfers between the airports and resorts.
Fellow luxury hotel chain COMO Hotels and Resorts is offering its own experiences, available individually or as ten-day tour across Thailand, Bhutan and Indonesia.
The packages include three nights at the Bangkok Metropolitan with cookery classes, a visit to Bang Rak market to pick up ingredients and a meal at Michelin-starred chef David Thompson’s new restaurant, starting at USD$750.
For the "Pray" section, COMO is sending guests for four nights at Uma Paro Bhutan from USD$2,658 for yoga and meditation, which also includes walks in the country, worship at a monastery and hot stone baths and massages.
The final package is designed for guests to fall in love with the stunning Indonesian terrain, with a romantic getaway for two from USD $840 at Uma Ubud Bali, with days out to see a healer, massages and a map to the sets featured in the movie.
