Sometimes we need a vacation from our vacation. Never is that more apparent than after the holidays, during which many of us packed on the pounds gorging on tasty treats and probably imbibed a little too much (I will miss you, mulled wine). If you are looking to detox after a particularly toxic holiday binge sesh, here are a few ideas for getting your mind and body back on track.
Get away to Miraval, an exclusive all-inclusive wellness experience located just outside of Tucson, Arizona. The resort can energize the mind, body and soul with its signature services that range form the Outdoor Nurture experience to its Qi Journey. Guests can also engage in activities such as Zen-nis Tennis, yoga, meditation, drumming, mosaic art and the challenge course for overcoming fears.
Perched above Big Sur’s stunning coastline, the Post Ranch Inn can inspire rejuvenation just by watching the crashing surf below. Located along one of the world’s most scenic routes, the inn offers a healing experience in a stunning setting. The spa utilizes the properties of nature to restore a sense of balance to the body. Infinity-edge, therapeutically heated pools look out over the seascape and a shaman engages the forces of nature and ancient wisdom to create lasting changes for guests’ physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Located on the Yucatan Peninsula, Maya Tulum offers serenity, scenery and a connection to the Mayan past. The property is a vortex of natural energy on the Caribbean Sea where guests can engage in transformational experiences inspired by Mayan tradition. Enjoy a stand-up paddleboarding retreat, participate in a traditional temazcal, meditate or practice yoga as you revive your spirit.
The BodyHoliday inspires guests to “give us your body for a week and we’ll give you back your mind.” This all-inclusive Caribbean fitness and spa resort keeps guests busy as they restore wellness within themselves. The property combines the beauty of island life, personal service, a luxurious atmosphere and a world-class Wellness Centre that promises to bring out the best in its guests.
Rediscover yourself on this private island resort in the Caribbean. More than just a mile-long white-sand beach, guests will regain mental stability and find stress relief with a customized wellness program that includes relaxing therapies, outdoor pursuits, fitness training, well-being lectures, meditation and more.
