• Experience the benefits of a wellness resort

    Tracey Nelson
    With so much stress in our lives many of us think about getting away for an indulgent, stress free, relaxing spa vacation – but the typical spa getaway is evolving into a new kind of indulgence, with Wellness Resorts popping up all over the world … Wellness vacations for the mind, body and spirit.

    Wellness Resorts are much more than massages and facials, they are focused on a total wellness experience and are increasing in popularity whether it be to include offerings and treatments that are physical, mental or both.  Stress is often noted as one of the main reasons for a wellness retreat or getaway.

    SpaFinder has reported, “Given the economic and moral climate, people are increasingly embracing travel with a higher benefit to either themselves (and their bodies) or others, whether that’s wellness tourism or “voluntourism” (travel with a philanthropic component), environmentally aware (eco) travel, or educationally or culturally immersive travel.”

    Here are just a few of the high quality Wellness Resort experience location examples:
