Get naked in sustainable luxury - 'Stables Private Reserve', China

Set on 60 pristine acres in its own private valley, surrounded by a reservoir, bamboo and tea plantations in the beautiful Moganshan hills in Zhejiang Province, two and a half hours from Shanghai, the naked Retreats Stables Private Reserve is getting ready to open it's doors on October 1st. And guests are in for a special kind of nature-inspired escape! 

This sustainable luxury spa resort and equestrian reserve features 121 beautifully appointed rooms in free-standing Tree-Top Villas and Earth Huts, fitted out in signature naked style. Founded by South African Grant Horsfield, the naked Retreats concept was conceived to communicate the philosophy of stripping away a busy cosmopolitan city lifestyle and restoring balance through closeness to nature, and boy, this place really nails it!  

As well as the very rustic-chic rooms, there's also an Afro-Asian restaurant Kikaboni (meaning ‘organic’ in Swahili) and Clubhouse Bar & Bistro; a 750 sqm naked Leaf Spa & Wellness Centre; three outdoor swimming pools; a Tea Pavilion, Bamboo Museum and Pottery Studio; Little Shoots Kids Club; and a fully equipped Equestrian Centre with operational stables for 20 horses. 

We are loving the sound of the Earth Hut for a totally unique kind of romantic ambience, hidden away in the seclusion of a pine forest (that's the round huts pictured above ... kind of quirky and cool, don't you think?). 

And with the bonus of an opening special deal for October and November, couples can double their pleasure with an extra night thrown in absolutely free with every overnight stay. The bathtub will be filled upon arrival and your host is on hand to provide room service and serve breakfast in bed. Share special moments during a pampering couple’s massage, a picnic in the bamboo forest and a romantic dinner at Kikaboni. Priced at RMB 2,100 per person (two nights; minimum two people), plus 15 percent service charge.
