Since launching its first resort in Bali in 2018, Revivo Wellness Resort has already become a fast-favourite with wellness lovers.

Apart from the launch in Barcelona to look forward to, it is also launching a Revivo Wellness Resort in Niseko for the winter season. It will combine Revivo’s concepts with Japan’s own unique wellness traditions and will feature a natural hot spring.”
