Dinner at the Eiffel Tower and shopping in London’s High Street are for the common folk. When you’ve visited nearly every island or hot destination there is to see, you might want something new and extraordinary that will benefit your body as much as it satisfies your mind. Look through these locations and you just might not be able to resist the urge to hop on your private jet and get in the air.
1. Lanzarote, Canary Islands
These Spanish islands are absolutely wonderful, with the glorious sun and gorgeous wildflowers. There are a few fantastic options for a wellness retreat that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. You can take a lesson on conscious breathing while staying at a private villa in Oasis de Nazaret or give new life to your muscles and joints with a tailor-made yoga class. Two good retreats to check out will be Breathing Space Retreat and The Life Change Retreat.
2. Menorca, Spain
Get a gut makeover at the private 250-acre estate of Cugó Gran in Menorca. Science has proven that our guts have a lot to do with our mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing, so why not give your gut some well-deserved attention. You’ll be treated to the best of sport performance-based Pilates, spa treatments, and delicious gut-restoring meals. Once the retreat is done, you can head to any of the luxury hotels on the island to enjoy Menorca a little longer.
3. The Himalayas, India
Check out Ayurvedic Rejuvenation at Ananda in the Himalayas to enjoy great Panchkarma therapies. The cool climate will help improve blood circulation and digestion while the clean air will leave your skin refreshed. You’ll be fed with meals to suit your body type and participate in private meditation and yoga sessions, while getting the best of expertly performed Ayurvedic treatments.
Greece is another location with its fair share of amazing wellness retreats. If you are a fan of the outdoors, you can enjoy running and climbing in Crete as you learn more about what you put in your mouth and how it affects your body. That would be Wildfitness Food+Fit which is an eco-village based in a dramatic mountain setting in White Mountains National Park, Crete.
If you are up for a bit of windsurfing and terrific yoga, you might want to try the Retreat Skyros Holistic Holiday. It is a fantastic option for a solo traveller who would love to see the Aegean island of Skyros.
There is no better place to experience the best of Arabian relaxation than Six Senses Ziggy Bay. You’ll get to enjoy an interesting array of tailored treatments and natural therapies, including acupressure, body polish, cocoons, hot stone massages, and more. You can also enjoy simple pleasures like the golden sunset as you sail across the water on a traditional dhow cruise.
