Enhancing the allure of the area
Geitvågen is already well known for its popular public campsite near the beach, attracting surfers, hikers and cyclists. The new retreat will complement and enhance the allure of the area, attracting new clientele and further establishing the area as a prime spot for both local and international visitors seeking leisure and recreation.
Simple and profound
Rooted deeply in the essence of its environment, the retreat boasts a design that is both simple and profound. Natural local materials and views to the surrounding landscape ensures a seamless integration with the outdoors. The large windows bring in an abundance of natural light and act as frames of the breathtaking landscape.
A celestial theme
The Moonstone Wellness Retreat's design draws its primary inspiration from the moon and its different phases. This celestial theme is reflected in the circular motifs that shape the architecture of the retreat. Three main buildings housing treatment areas, a spa, and yoga studios, as well as twenty-four cabins, are each thoughtfully nestled into the natural landscape.
Preserving and enhancing local biodiversity
In designing the retreat, special attention was given to preserving and enhancing the local biodiversity. The architectural and landscaping choices at Moonstone Wellness Retreat are guided by principles of sustainability and reversibility. Natural and eco-friendly materials are predominantly used, underlining a deep respect for and understanding of the unique natural characteristics of the Geitvågen area. This approach ensures that the retreat exists in harmony with its environment, minimizing its ecological footprint while providing a serene and healing space for its visitors.
