The perfect getaway is all about balance
rest, rejuvenation, and renewal. It’s important to take time out of your busy life and enjoy some time in an environment that promotes relaxation and encourages exploration. Planning a wellness getaway can add dimensions to your life you never knew existed! By looking at each vacation as an opportunity to achieve balance, you will create opportunities that put you on the path toward better health, improved wellness, happiness, and overall well-being.
So you want to unwind?
Everybody needs a vacation to relax and get away from it all. If you’re looking for an unforgettable wellness-based getaway, here are 10 destinations worth checking out. While each place has its unique vibe, most incorporate fitness activities, healthy food, and spa treatments into their all-inclusive packages. You won’t have to worry about doing any planning or worrying about things like flight delays, lost luggage, or even what to do in your downtime – just sit back and be pampered!
If you think wellness and fun can’t go together, think again.
Many people think wellness and fun aren’t compatible. They think wellness is all about bland, boring food, eating green (which you probably know by now isn’t true), and doing exercises that look like torture devices. That couldn’t be further from reality! There are tons of hotel spas around that offer both traditional spa services like massages and facials plus exciting activities like rock climbing walls, jet skis, or even a bowling alley. If you’re thinking about visiting any of these 10 hotels—or booking a spa weekend yourself—you’ll want to read on to find out why!
The key lies in variety.
When you eat well at home and prepare your meals, it’s difficult to achieve a balance that makes you feel healthy and energized. At home, if you were to eat nothing but chicken breast with steamed broccoli every day, even if it’s not in excess, that lack of variety would eventually make you feel unwell. When you go on vacation, however, especially when staying at one of these great wellness hotels and resorts, your diet will be changed both by locale and by whim. There are unlimited options when looking for well-balanced meals that keep customers coming back to these hotels time after time.
Laid-back luxury on the North Coast
The North Coast is dotted with elegant, plush vacation destinations that allow you to relax, reconnect and enjoy some serious R&R. The luxury lodges on and around Lake Superior don’t offer many high-end amenities—no gyms or pools—but they deliver in other ways: In-room massage therapists on staff, locally harvested food served up every day at breakfast and beautiful views of Lake Superior. Several places we like: Park Point Resort, in Bayfield; Grand View Lodge, near Ashland; Tahquamenon Falls Inn & Spa, near Paradise; and Interlochen Golf Resort & Spa, near Traverse City. And our favorite all-around stay? The Marquette Bayview Hotel.
Why the Maldives beat Ibiza as an ultimate party destination
There’s no doubting that Ibiza was once, and still is in many ways, a mecca for party-hard hedonists. But in recent years it has lost its place at – or near – top of the best-party-in-the-world list. We all have our ideas as to why that might be: overcrowding and regulation; it’s so obviously commercialized now; etc. Whatever your reasons, you’re likely wrong. The real reason Ibiza doesn’t seem as good anymore is that there are other (more luxurious) party islands out there that take partying to another level.
Bali’s Ubud – where yoga meets rustic charm.
When it comes to yoga and meditation retreats, Bali is at the top of every list. No surprise there, since Ubud has been called the Mecca of all things holistic. Although there are many yoga places around Ubud (Ketut Liyer Healing Center or Karsa Yoga come highly recommended), you don’t have to join in on one to reap benefits from all that Bali has to offer. Stay at a hotel that offers massages (no spa necessary) and do some exploring. You’ll be glad you did.
Where wellness meets urban oasis, with style.
New York City is an amazing city to visit and experience in general. When traveling to New York, visiting Central Park is an absolute must. Not only will you be able to see famous attractions such as The Mall and Bethesda Fountain, but you’ll also find wellness and an urban oasis within yourself. As one of New York’s best-kept secrets, Central Park is great for anyone interested in enjoying nature while staying close to all that NYC has to offer, plus it’s one of our favorite places to explore while staying at The Affinia Gardens – Affinia 50 Central Park South Hotel!
