Our World Leading Health Check-Up Programme
The Foundation For a Better, Longer Life
Your health is your wealth. Understanding the well-being of your mind and body is critical to maintaining a high quality of life, particularly for people who lead busy, stressful or high profile lives. Our 7-day Comprehensive Health Check-Up will enable you to thrive, by identifying underlying issues before they become major problems, and helping you address mental or physical challenges that are holding you back. Using state-of-the-art techniques and guided by our unrivalled expertise, the programme delivers in-depth insights into every aspect of your health, in the comfort of our exclusive lakeside penthouse apartments.
Enhancing Your Physical and Mental Well-Being
Many of the conditions that damage or shorten the lives of successful people and those from wealthy backgrounds are preventable if identified early enough. We aim to provide you with this crucial knowledge.
With our support you can then adjust your lifestyle and environment to reduce the risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, cancer, respiratory conditions, stroke and Alzheimer’s – the five most common causes of death in the western world according to the World Health Organisation.
What differentiates our service is the connection we make between your body and mind. The physical and the psychological go hand-in-hand and we know treating both successfully is the only way to achieve positive overall well-being.
That’s why we go far beyond standard health checks by including a rigorous assessment of your mental health, sleep quality and stress levels. Once we have completed our diagnostic procedures, we will provide a thorough overview of your health, including recommendations for further treatments and lifestyle changes.
What’s Included in the Programme?
Your week with us will be led by a dedicated team of doctors, psychologists and nutritionists, including Nobel Prize winners and global experts. Although our assessments are rigorous, they take place in beautiful surroundings designed to keep you as relaxed as possible throughout the process.
Shaping A Healthier Future

These include lifestyle changes, further treatment options and a personalised recipe book from our nutritionist.

This gives us time to gather all laboratory results and consult second opinions to verify our findings, so that our recommendations are tailored to your specific needs. By equipping you with the tools and knowledge to take control of your well-being, we’ll empower you to lead a healthier life and benefit from the increased happiness, productivity and resilience that brings.
