The pursuit of health and wellness has become more than a lifestyle choice, indeed it’s now a status symbol. We no longer talk about ‘wealth’ in purely monetary terms. ‘Wellth’ – a life exemplified by happiness, purpose and health – is now the desired goal and this has been embraced by the high street and big brands alike across the fashion, travel, beauty and food sectors.
Here, we highlight five fabulous Wellbeing Holidays that encapsulate the best of ‘Wealth’, providing serious health benefits without sacrificing on luxury:
1) THE BEST WEIGHT-LOSS HOLIDAY – THE GUT MAKEOVER RETREAT IN CUGÓ GRAN, MENORCA
During this five-night retreat you will lose weight and learn a cutting-edge eating programme to keep your gut healthy whilst enjoying delicious Mediterranean cuisine specially designed by leading nutritionist & best-selling author, Jeannette Hyde. With the goal to restore your digestive health to achieve optimal weight and metabolic function, as well as physical, emotional and mental balance, the Gut Makeover Retreat takes place in the beautiful Cugó Gran private estate in Menorca. This full-service 11-bedroom luxury villa hotel accommodates up to 22 guests to ensure maximum personal attention. A dedicated Concierge team delivering the services of a five-star hotel means that total peace of mind and relaxation is guaranteed.
Additional activities during the retreat include individual and group Pilates sessions by the celebrity-instructor Bernadette Phillips, who is particularly known for her sport-performance focused method. There are also facials by Rosalena Skincare and LI’TYA rhythmic body massages on offer as well as yoga sessions, gut-friendly picnics and boat trips. Additionally, guests can choose to organise a guided bike ride or even a horse ride along the many beautiful sections of Menorca’s famous Camí de Cavalls – the ancient path that encircles the island.
