Our story

Creating the space for life transformation and love in action

In 2007, Fivelements was conceived as an integrated wellness lifestyle company whose authentic destinations offer an opportunity for inspiration, awareness and progress in the 21st century. Its focus is on designing high impact wellness strategies aimed at supporting individuals, families and organisations enduring life transitions and transformation.
Motivated by a vision for a happier and healthier world, our holistic wellness destinations are curated "homes" for the expanding global wellness community and the change-makers of today and tomorrow.

What began as a leap of faith, embraced by its founders in unspoken terms, became a reality driven by a strong will and a mission to participate in the emerging transformation economy.
Cofounders and entrepreneurs, Lahra and Chicco Tatriele, share a wealth of experience in the fields of international business, culture-based brand equity development, communications and public relations, holistic wellness hospitality and spiritual dialogue. The managing directors bring 25 years in creating and executing progressive brand concepts and strategies for new market segments in USA, Europe and Asia.
Recently joining the Evolution Wellness portfolio (owners and operators of the largest, wholly-owned network of fitness clubs in Asia comprising Fitness First, Celebrity Fitness and Chi Fitness brands), Fivelements is well-positioned to expand its distinguished brand concept into cities and new retreat destinations catering to the $4.2 trillion Global Wellness Economy (Ref. Global Wellness Economy Monitor 2018).
Fivelements Retreat Bali opened in late 2010 as the first of a new genre of wellness destinations bridging the wisdom of traditional healing cultures with innovative wellness concepts. The retreat will more than double its size in room accommodations and launch a state-of-the-art plant-based culinary training kitchen by 2020, opening up new opportunities to host group holistic wellness and culinary training retreats as well as expand their private signature wellness retreat business. New retreats and residences are on the horizon for growth.
Fivelements will open the first Fivelements Habitat in Times Square, Hong Kong this July 2019, followed by two more locations in Hong Kong's central business districts over the coming 18 months, and expanding to other cities in Asia thereafter.

Expanding from its award-winning wellness retreat in Bali, these new urban wellness destinations offer city sanctuaries for yoga, sacred arts and plant-powered cuisine, catering to urban residents and corporates who live highly demanding lifestyles and are seeking greater balance, stress reduction and authentic, personalised wellness experiences.

The intent is to create a home or 'habitat' for the growing 'urban wellness tribe' and cultivate it as the 2nd most important place for urban dwellers, creating a bridge between their residence and their workplace.
Since opening its doors in Bali in 2010, Fivelements has established itself as an innovative leader in residential wellness retreats, epicurean plant-based cuisine, transformative sacred arts programmes, and wellness hospitality. To date, Fivelements has won over 40 international awards spanning across hotel and resort, wellness, spa, culinary and sustainable design industries, welcoming guests from all over the world.
Fivelements' intention is to co-create strategic wellness concepts and destinations that share:
  • A vision for love and its power to transform
  • An aspiration for bridging the wisdom, philosophies and healing practices of traditional cultures with innovative wellness services
  • An eco-consciousness linking our mission to inspiring design
By focusing our efforts toward this, we will collectively make a greater impact on 'the wellness of humanity.'

Love in action.
