There are many ways to move into the New Year with a focus on wellness of the mind, body and spirit. One of these is by visiting a wellness resort. Wellness travel continues to grow in popularity, and there are so many options for experiencing your own reset or renewal. You can go with friends, as a couple, or solo. You can go for a few days or a whole month. You can stay close to home or visit an exotic locale. You can reset in the lap of luxury or retreat into a more natural setting. The possibilities are endless. Below are just a few suggestions for wellness-focused trips where you can discover a whole new you for the new year!
Many wellness companies sponsor themed cruises, but there also are several cruise lines that have wellness-focused offerings and cruises as part of their “in-house” program. Cruises of this type can give you the double benefit of visiting and immersing yourself in exotic and beautiful ports of call while incorporating wellness and fitness into your vacation.
Several cruises per year are devoted entirely to wellness and relaxation. Treatments, stops at the most sumptuous spas, and visits to natural springs will feature in your itinerary, where rest and replenishment are the guiding principles. The next wellness itinerary is in the Adriatic, in June 2023.
This ultra-luxury cruise line has partnered with acclaimed wellness pioneer Dr. Andrew Weil to incorporate a Spa and Wellness program featuring Dr. Weil’s mindful living program as well as a holistic spa and wellness experience that integrates physical, social, nutritional, environmental and spiritual well-being designed to relax and rejuvenate your mind and spirit as well as body. Some of the features of this program include complimentary sessions of Mindful Meditation and restorative yoga, personalized treatment plans to address guests’ specific health and wellness needs. Mind and Body seminars, a Wellness Guide on all ships to guide guests through classes and personalized treatment programs.
