Wellness Holidays: The Most Amazing Health and Fitness Retreats

 

We need to detoxify our body and our spirit every once in a while. The work and daily responsibilities can be so exhausting a getaway is the only thing that can truly rejuvenate us and, thankfully, there are enough resorts around the world that are very successful in helping people get better. If you are looking for a break to de-stress, here are some of the most amazing health and fitness retreats for wellness holidays.

Crete, Greece

If you work in the office around the clock, the chances are you are spending a lot of time sitting and stress-eating. If you want to enjoy the mesmerizing natural sights and get fit, then Crete is a location for you. It’s the largest Greek island in the Mediterranean Sea and, at approximately 60 km wide and 260 km long, it offers some of the most jaw-dropping vistas you could imagine. Go for a physically involved health and fitness retreat at Milia, a renowned farm refurbished as an eco-village. Enjoy a ten-day retreat brimming with activities such as climbing, hiking and running while relishing in delightful local health-meals.

Rekawa Lagoon, Sri Lanka

Head down to the southern tip of Sri Lanka and enjoy the charms of Sen Wellness Sanctuary. Take a whole week to get off the radar and replenish your energy reserves at this wondrous beachside haven. The retreat is led by London-based acupuncturist and osteopath Sam Kankanamge. You will get a chance to lose weight and get the blood flowing through your muscles as your back finally feels relief from the chronic pain (probably caused by the stress). Enjoy the charms or Rekawa and Tangalle Beach and use your free time to jog along the sandy beach.

Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia

Byron Bay is a secluded beachside town on a coastline between Brisbane and Sydney. It is mostly known worldwide for its surfing beaches and quaint surroundings where tourists come to relax. If you are looking for a place to detox, there is a luxurious Byron Bay Accommodation that offers amazing services, a killer day spa and incredible restaurants. There are some truly neat options for yoga classes and scheduled hikes through the nearby rainforest you should look into. The picturesque beaches and unique ecosystem make Byron Bay one of the most sought-after resorts for health and fitness on this side of the globe.

Paradis Plage, Morocco

Morocco is probably one of the most beautiful and exotic countries you will visit, and its Paradis Plage Surf Yoga & Spa Resort is a true Zen-hotspot on this side of the Atlantic Ocean. If you’ve ever wanted to wake up to the mesmerizing sound of ocean waves, head to this resort without a second thought. After a session of sunset yoga, head to the nearby Taghazout, a small port and a surfer haven where you can ride camels and ride a jet ski. While you are in the region, do not miss out on Imouzzer waterfall.

Oxfordshire, United Kingdom

Now here is a place for those of you who want a perfect escapade in a backdrop that has a rustic feel to it. Head for a Wellness Day in the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, especially if you get a chance to take a vacation in the early summer – the green countryside is budding with some of the most beautiful flowers and lush plant life you will see. Yoga program is exquisite and well thought out. Meditative walks and energy infusing morning stretches will have you up and running with newfound vigor in no-time.

 

Whether it is a retreat in the middle of the forest or a beachside resort, finding the right place to find your inner balance is crucial to retain peak performance in your workplace and with your daily obligations. Sometimes, in order to find the right perspective, you need to step away from your everyday life and reassess your goals as you heal your body and your spirit. These fitness retreats are basically tailored for this, and you won’t regret taking a chance with any of them.
