With the number of health-conscious holidaymakers on the rise, we’ve gathered a list of top tips for filling your holiday full of health, wellness and happiness to leave you feeling motivated, revitalised and rearing to go on your return.
Holidays are the perfect time to switch off from our stresses, slow down and find a little peace in ourselves. They also offer a chance to explore the incredible views, different cultures and eye-opening experiences this world has to offer. So why not take a step out of your comfort zone and shake up your next holiday with our top wellness tips?
Escape to Nature
Choose a tranquil setting for your next escape that will instantly soothe the soul. Beach breaks don’t have to be all sun, sea and sand (although it still sounds like heaven). But taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and getting in touch with the green goodness of nature can boost our mood and make us feel instantly calmer.
One of our top picks for a refreshing beach setting is the memerising Marmaris coastline in Turkey, where peaceful pebble beaches meet lush, green pine-forested mountains for truly spine-tingling, sunny views. Spending some stress-free time soaking up these serene settings can leave us feeling refreshed and appreciative of the beauty the world has to offer!
Get your body moving
It’s no secret that exercise boosts our happy hormones, leaving us feeling energised, accomplished and motivated. So why not inject a little energy to your next holiday? From a refreshing early morning swim to fitness classes on the beach or a surfing and diving school, with more hotels now offering fabulous sports facilities, it’s the perfect chance to try something new. If you’re more of the adventurous type, why not rent a bike, take a map and explore the local surroundings? It’s a great chance to get your family, friends or loved ones involved too.
Rediscover rejuvenation and revel in relaxation with a trip to a serene spa hotel. Santorini is a great choice for those seeking a tranquil spa retreat and there are plenty of luxurious resorts offering ultimate relaxation, elegant ocean views and authentic spa treatments that originate from their ancient Greek roots.
Spoil yourself with a spot of pampering and indulge in a one-of-a-kind wellness experience, with modern spas now offering a treat for all five senses. Signature treatments, restorative massages and advanced thalassotherapies using the healing power of seawater. So why not sneak a little serenity into your next getaway? And leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and revitalised. After all, you do deserve it!
Treat your taste buds
Fuel your body with goodness on your next getaway. From vast fresh buffets with spectacular food choices, fine-dining experiences and à la carte delights of all kinds, many hotels are taking dining to a whole new level.
Portugal is now home to some of the world’s most relaxing retreats with a big focus on all things wellness. Like the Monchique Resort & Spa, where you can delight in delicious Mediterranean specialities, fine-dining experiences and elegant light lunches to leave your taste buds tingling and your body energised. For those more adventurous foodies, why not do your research and explore the local specialities enjoyed? You won’t find it fresher anywhere else that’s for sure.
