Holidays have always been the optimum way for weary individuals to rest, unwind and spend quality time doing the things that make their soul sing. And though the idea of taking a trip to focus on one’s wellbeing isn’t exactly a new concept – the city of Bath is a fine example of this and its centuries of history as a spa city first discovered by the Romans  – a different type of wellness tourism has certainly taken a leap in recent years.

It seems we want more of an experience when we travel. The luxury lounging holiday isn’t out of the question, it has just evolved into something else; a trip where we experience new things, and not just rejuvenate, but find ways to improve ourselves, while bringing an essence of that back home with us to extend the wellness experience ever further into our daily lives. The experience offers many benefits for mind and body.

The beauty of the wellness holiday is that you can amend it to suit you. If you are looking to become a fitness fanatic and you need a kick-start, then you will certainly be able to find a holiday that suits. If you are seeking a more relaxing, spiritual vacation filled with meditation and yoga or if you simply wish to be looked after and treated to a range of spa therapies to nourish your body and soul you can indeed do this, too. The choice is in your hands, and this is what makes retreats such a welcoming option.
