When on the hunt for the next luxurious wellness retreat that will make you forget about the stressful urban life, the Maleo Residence in Indonesia is a likely candidate. First of all, the establishment's facilities make it easy for guests to sit back and relax—from large swimming pools and spaces that are designated for yoga and light exercise to an outdoor spa and an abundance of tranquil communal spaces.
Secondly, Mitchel Squires & Associates, the firm which was commissioned to design this luxurious wellness retreat, did a great job of integrating architectural work within a hillside setting. The building is strategically positioned, amid the flora and fauna, creating the illusion that the man-made structure is growing out of the natural landscape.
