In the last year, many people have begun to take their health more seriously to get back into shape, but it can be extremely difficult to stick with your healthy diet and exercise while on vacation. You’re surrounded by delicious gourmet foods that are all screaming at you, “Eat me!” And you can’t help but try all four desserts because how else are you supposed to know which one is the best unless you eat each individual one?! It becomes a love-hate relationship with wanting to keep eating more and feeling bad about yourself after you do so. With that being said, why not visit a destination where you can eat scrumptious healthy meals, yet feel rejuvenated?
Healthy eating doesn’t mean eating boring – the gourmet chefs at the wellness resorts specialize in making healthy foods delicious! The resorts may even have cooking classes for you to learn how to make delightful healthy meals! Though, maybe you aren’t necessarily looking for a healthy-eating/detox resort, but a destination where you can reach complete relaxation. Whether that means practicing yoga on the beach, indulging in refreshing spa treatments, or participating in outdoor adventures, you will be able to find and enjoy a stress-free escape.
Wellness vacations can be taken almost anywhere in the world. Each wellness resort has its own unique niche – some may be weight loss programs, fitness classes, anti-aging treatments, or detoxing meals. Some of the most popular destinations are the following:
- Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea
- Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Arizona
- Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort in Costa Rica
- Mountain Trek in Bristish Columbia, Canada
