To keep this trinity in balance requires a sensitive, complementary approach. The KYN experience is therefore constantly enhanced with holistic therapies and intellectually stimulating activities.
We dig deep, to understand who our residents are, what interests, inspires and strengthens them. This allows us to tailor our diverse programme of daily activities to suit every individual.
KYN’s ‘Soul Activities’ are designed to creatively inspire our residents. Examples include floral design workshops, art talks given by leading experts, live opera and many more.
We offer a range of ‘Mind Activities’ designed to stimulate thinking, dialogue and participation, including a Literature Appreciation Society, a Current Affairs Club, visits from school children and pet therapy.
KYN’s ‘Body Activities’ promote physical exercise as key to a healthy mind. We organise gentle, expert-led classes from Pilates to Tai Chi, as well as therapeutic massage, craniosacral therapy, reflexology and acupuncture.
The heart of our holistic offering is the KYTH Spa — a standout feature of all our KYN residences. With elegant, comfortable interiors by leading designer, Nina Campbell, the spa is a place to relax and restore body and spirit.
Here, residents and their guests can feel their pain and stress start to slip away under the expert hands of our highly trained in-house and visiting therapy practitioners, including physiotherapists. We also offer therapeutic massage, reflexology, homeopathy and acupuncture.
FOOD AND DRINK
At KYN, every dining experience has been cultivated to five-star hotel standards, whether a resident is eating in the privacy of their own suite with 24-hour room service, or settling down for a multi-course meal with family and friends in the Great Room.
Of equal importance is inspiring, nutritional food. Everything we grow and make at KYN is served with love. Our chefs are trained to deliver restaurant-quality standard food, with nutritional balance front-of-mind, and an emphasis on fresh, seasonal, organic ingredients wherever possible.
Every home has a private library, curated by renowned bookshop Heywood Hill of Mayfair, who were awarded the Royal Warrant by Her Majesty The Queen in 2011.
Each home has a private cinema, where residents can enjoy the latest films as well as old classics.
KYN hosts regular recitals by visiting musicians in our Great Rooms. We also offer opera, classical, jazz and contemporary concerts, live-streamed from the UK’s most prestigious venues, from the Royal Albert Hall to the intimate gatherings of London’s Wigmore Hall.
