5 Premier Health & Wellness Holiday Resorts

Writer at Desk

Definitely on our list {Bucket List}, is to take a specific Health & Wellness vacation abroad. So when my guest author suggested this topic to me, I jumped at the opportunity. Below, are just 5 Premier …

🌺Health & Wellness Holiday Resorts, 🌺

of the many destinations and reasons to consider this type of holiday.

Health & Wellness Vacation

Health & Wellness Holiday

Treat yourself to a {🪔 Health & Wellness Holiday} this season and see what you’ve been missing. As the world in general becomes more health conscious, health and wellness tourism is now a priority for many travelers.

A great option for those who want to use their holiday as a chance to improve their overall well being. More and more people today and especially us {Baby Boomers and Retirees}, are always trying to discover new ways to;

Slow the Effects of Aging;
Lose Weight;
Look and Feel Better;
Manage Stress;
Pain Relief.

The above are just a few reasons for improving ones overall health and wellness.

Health Wellness Holiday

Traditionally, destination spas have always been offering these services, but resorts are also now looking to cash in on the health and wellness craze.

These services are also now being offered by day spas to cater to travelers who do not have much time on their hands.

Health Retreats Versus Health & Wellness Fitness Retreats

Health Wellness Holiday

Although health and wellness retreats and other such establishments are bundled up into the same category, it is important to be able to make a distinction between the two.

A person visiting a health retreat may be an individual who perhaps has a preexisting medical condition for example, and would therefore be seeking out different healing therapies to complement their medication.

Wellness travelers on the other hand, are generally healthy and are more concerned with therapies that will help to maintain and even improve their overall sense of well-being.

Leading the pack in health and wellness is of course the – Spa industry.

These come with professionally run and structured programs that are geared towards achieving better health and wellness. There are different kinds of spas, with one of these being mineral spring spas. These normally rely on hydrotherapy which may include; seawater, thermal and natural mineral waters.

Such establishments are mainly frequented by the European market and often built and promoted around this clientele.

Health & Wellness Fitness Holiday Growth

Resort/hotel spas are also major players in this industry, and growing rapidly as each year passes. What was once years ago a small niche market, has now grown globally. These properties can now be seen in numerous hotel and resorts around the 🌎 world.

Apart from the traditional vacation opportunities presented by resorts, additional amenities such as the Spa may be included in your 🏨 resort/hotel package. These amenities have proven to be extremely profitable for the proprietors, and of course very beneficial for the guests as well. 🙂

Spas are now more sought after than ever and many potential vacationers are now using the availability (or lack thereof) of a spa, as an important criteria in choosing their preferred vacation destination and property.

This, both locally and for international travel.

More and more people are now using Spas as a way to not only improve their general sense of well-being, but also as a way of enhancing their physical appearance.

Medical spas are not to be left behind in this category. Away from the cosmetic treatment rage of the past decade, medical spas are being used for decidedly medical reasons.

This usually includes health and wellness education, preventive health regimens and treatments. As well, nutrition and fitness are an important aspect with these types of resorts.

Final Thoughts Banner

These are just a few of some of the great options to consider for health and wellness travel around the world. As this niche in the industry continues to grow rapidly, guests now have far more choices to choose from internationally.

Especially for us who would enjoy the luxuries and pampering Spas offer, but who may also be a strict limited budget.


The health and wellness industry has grown a great deal over the past few years, and is expected to continue growing as more people prioritize their health and fitness.
