Ritual Retreat - it’s time to treat your body and soul.
We all know about the benefits of a healthy diet and exercising, so why not place equal consideration on how our living space can affect the mind, body and spirit?
Claire Denise Harrigan; Multimedia Artist and health/wellbeing specialist from London, teams up with a Swedish interior architect Asa Oveland to create a holistically designed space aimed at enhancing people’s lifestyle while being environmentally friendly.
The key features of this Ritual Retreat concept are: The heart of the home is Dazie: a central, computerised home management lighting system designed by Morban Intelligent Living.
The house is heated by an energy efficient system designed by Eco-Gas, using solar panels and water based underfloor heating.
Low toxic sustainable materials are used throughout the house, including natural paints, plasters, & sheep’s wool insulation.
The concept integrates colour therapy into the design through LED lighting and a multipurpose ‘Happy Shower’ that washes you in colour as you cleanse.
The Zen Den
Underfloor heated polished concrete, keeps your feet delightfully warm in the winter months, and cool in the summer.
A large open planned high spec kitchen sits in the North East corner, with a hand made leather and teak bar separating the chill out zone complimented with a 42in plasma screen TV and surround system.
A flexible dining table or office area sits infront of the patio doors (south facing), which open fully to create a feeling of bringing the outside in, ideal for Summer entertaining and great light in the grey winter months.
As you climb the Teak staircase, held by white bamboo, you approach a large hallway, with pebble cut outs lit with sensor lighting.
A white budha sits peacefully in the corner and a large mirror creates a feeling of space. Full height doors, with push/pull franchi door handles lead the way to a Super king size sleeping platform - the latest high tech sleeping system from Nikken.
This enhances restful sleep and assists in the journey to complete wellness.
The walls are covered in a mix of clay, when the light hits them they sparkle, giving an earthy feel to the room. Simply designed for sleep.
A doorway slides to reveal a totally functional zone - can be styled either as a nursery/office/sitting room or 3rd Bedroom.
The Golden Pebble sits in the walk in a rain shower, complimented by a reflexology floor of balinese pebbles. Surrounded by wooden tiles you simply are taken to a tropical sphere.
The Stark WC and Bidet sit suspended over another pebble cut out, and the chandlier sparkle over the handmade basin and teak cabinet.
Simply heavenly on the top floor, a japanese style bed sits in the middle of the room. A light airy loftstyle room with 7 m of storage.
The happy shower separates the Japanese bathing ritual, which changes colour to your own combination. Have the sky purple and the shower pink, plenty of colour combinations for every mood and sensation.

Reviews of this property
nice house in a dead end street with plenty of room for 6 persons. Nearest Underground is Miles End (about 10/15 min walk). The house has a well-equipped kitchen and 2 bathrooms and is cosy and clean. We stayed for 4 days with 6 persons (four children aged 10,12, 18 and 20) and -apart from the weather, everything worked out very well ! .

We arrived very late but that was no problem with the keys. It was very difficult to find. Since we arrived at night, we could not take our own driver to complete.
Because the property name does not correspond with the real here, it was even harder for locals to answer our question but with the photos on the website no problem. When the seemingly endless stairs one is running down to the beach with 20 kilos of luggage beastly done but what an expected there made everything wet again .. poet on the beach we've never been ... Great view! Quiet! horny waves! The in-house driver was then taken up and he was very friendly and helpful. The only thing we did not like was the air conditioning which was not working properly and then the wifi was available with which however did not exist .. Nevertheless dream destination !!
Wir sind erst sehr spät angereist aber das war kein Problem mit der Schlüsselübergabe. Es war nur sehr schwer zu finden. Da wir in der Nacht angereist sind, konnten wir nicht den hauseigenen Fahrer in Anspruch nehmen.
Da der Unterkunftsname hier mit dem wirklichen nicht übereinstimmen wurde es noch schwerer für Locals unsere Frage zu beantworten aber mit den Fotos auf der Website alles kein Problem. Wenn man die endlos erscheinenden Treppen zum Strand mit 20 kilo Gepäck runterläuft ist man tierisch fertig aber was ein dort erwartet machte alles wieder wet.. Dichter am Strand waren wir noch nie... Super Ausblick! Ruhe! geile Wellen! Der hauseigene Fahrer wurde dann noch in Anspruch genommen und er war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das einzige was uns nicht gefallen hat war die Klimaanlage, die nicht richtig funktionierte und dann noch das Wifi was mit angeboten wurde aber gar nicht existierte.. Trotzdem traumhafte Unterkunft!!
