When long work days, busy weekends, too much junk food, and too little self-care catches up with you, it’s time to plan your vacation to a resort that promotes nutritious but delicious cuisine, creative fitness classes, and a bevy of spa services. These five ultimate wellness resorts will help you relax, rejuvenate, and take care of your body, mind, and spirit…all while enjoying a dreamy destination.
BodyHoliday - St. Lucia
This holistic all-inclusive resort set on the island’s western shore promotes health and wellness through thoughtfully crafted treatments, activities, and dining experiences. Some spa services are included (massage, facials, seawater treatments, sauna) and the resort boasts even more paid experiences. Healthy cuisine served by the resort’s five restaurants and an array of fitness and yoga activities make this a stellar destination for relaxation and self-care.
Rosewood Mayakoba - Riviera Maya, Mexico
Before your arrival at this stunning resort in Riviera Maya, a team of wellness consultants will work with you to create your “Path of Wellness,” a personalized agenda for your stay. Choose to focus on inner balance, fitness and nutrition, or adventure; the team will plan three custom activities for your preferred experience.
Palmaïa, The House of AïA – Riviera Maya, Mexico
For a tranquil retreat that is also family-friendly, Palmaïa, The House of AïA combines the most desired elements of an all-inclusive vacation with the feel of a secluded sanctuary. The Michelin-trained chefs are wizards with preparing plant-based dishes that will make your mouth water. The Atlantis Spa provides a 13-page menu online for you to peruse before arrival so you can plan your days of pampering. Children can participate in Waldorf-inspired programs, ride bamboo bikes, or play in the Aqua Park.
Sanctuary Camelback – Arizona
At 6am in this desert escape in Scottsdale, you can be pampered in your first spa appointment of the day. Opt for more traditional services, recharge with a Golden Lotus Balancing Ritual, or embark on a Nidra Sound Voyage. If you’re ready to get up and go, the day’s schedule of fitness classes also kicks off at this time. Unwind at a Dine & Learn session to get up close and personal with the resort’s incredible chefs and learn the art of cuisine preparation. Relax with live music on the patio at Sundays in Paradise, which are the perfect ending to a perfect week.
GoldenEye – Jamaica
GoldenEye boasts inspiring lush grounds (Ian Fleming wrote his James Bond novels here! Sting wrote “Every Breath You Take!” Bono wrote the theme for the GoldenEye film!) and impeccable attention to detail. Meals are prepared in creative ways with the freshest ingredients. The menu for spa services is lengthy and varied. The staff is ready to cater to your every whim. Beautifully appointed and secluded beach huts, villas, or cottages await, complete with sweeping views and outdoor baths.
