As we know, there is no better way to recharge your soul than an experience like island hopping on a luxury yacht, surrounded by some of the world’s most breathtaking views - but studies suggest that these benefits may be more than for your mind, but also for your body’s immune system too!
Researchers at Georgetown University in the United States have proven that sunlight not only provides Vitamin D but also supercharges your T cells which are used to fight infection and boost immunity levels. "We all know that sunlight provides vitamin D, which has an impact on immunity among other things. But what we found is a completely separate role of sunlight on immunity," says Gerard Ahern, the study's senior professor. The blue light emitted from the sun enables T Cells to move faster. "T-cells need to move to do their work, which is to get to the site of an infection and orchestrate a response," Ahern says. "This study shows that sunlight directly activates key immune cells by increasing their movement."
It is with this in mind that the Thailand Insiders at Andaman Group decided to launch their Immune Boosting Island hopper Package, which focuses on getting healthy doses of sun, comfortable isolation aboard a luxury yacht, access to secluded beaches and health focused cuisine to their guests.
Curating a weekend getaway for those looking to escape the urban jungle and add some colour to their surroundings, guests will experience the best of what the Andaman has to offer. Staying in a private villa that shares a private bay with the iconic celebrity hotspot, they will wake up within a tropical oasis overlooking the Andaman Sea. Taken away on a sports cruiser boat, guests will discover the Phang Nga Archipelago at their doorstep and its breathtaking limestone cliffs.
Stopping for snorkeling amidst unspoiled reefs will add a much-needed dose of Vitamin Sea. For lunch the team will prepare a private picnic filled with immune-boosting delights and, of course, a glass of bubbles with a backdrop of a secluded beach and crystal clear waters.
Prices start at $899** per person and include 2 Night Stay in a Private Beach Villa, a Private Boat Cruise including Activities and Picnic, Spa Treatment and access to Andaman Lifestyle Group’s Insider Concierge Service - opening their black book to the best the region has to offer, including restaurants, celebrity hangouts and experiences.
