It’s the same thing every single year. We always promise and resolve to become better versions of ourselves and decide to focus on our life purpose, only to have the list of resolutions end up in the trash within a month or two. The usual ‘new year, new me’ cliché has been extremely overused and many people don’t have extraordinary, life-changing stories to tell. So, don’t you think that it’s time to try something new to achieve your goals by going on a relaxing break to reconnect with yourself and your mission?
Finding some peace of mind has become increasingly crucial in today’s world, but it has also gotten increasingly difficult to come by. As a result, while holidays have always been a method to escape reality, including wellness into your travel plans is the current trend. Virtual travel made a long-awaited arrival in 2020, allowing people to experience travel in a new light. Many people thought that 2021 will be the year that the pandemic comes to an end and travel plans get put into action, but little did they know that the universe had other plans. However, after a whole year of disappointments, stress, pessimism, and long periods of seclusion, a health retreat is absolutely necessary.
While we all appreciate tending to a lush garden or sipping a refreshing drink while watching the last rays of sunlight rush in through the window, nothing beats escaping to our own personal paradise, whether it’s the beach, mountains, or jungle. Allow the ‘wake up, eat, sleep, repeat’ cycle to continue in 2020. Recharge, renew, and revive your overall health by taking a break in gorgeous settings.
To that end, we’ve compiled a list of some of the world’s top wellness resorts, where you can unwind, enjoy, and forget about your troubles.
- SHA Wellness Clinic, Spain
The SHA Wellness Clinic is top-of-the-range and overlooks the Mediterranean Sea from the Sierra Helada Mountains. It has one of the top medical spas in the world. The SHA approach integrates old eastern natural remedies with current western preventive and regenerative medicine, genetics, and anti-ageing procedures to focus on health and wellness, lifestyle, and nutrition. This multi-award-winning experience is completed with luxurious amenities, two indoor heated pools, a hydrotherapy circuit, specialised nutrition, and calming panoramas. The majority of retreats last seven days, although some go longer.
- Bio Hotel Stanglwirt, Austria
The Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt, a large alpine lodge at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser mountain, looks like a scene from the movie “The Sound of Music.” Take a six-mile journey to Schwarzsee Lake, one of the hottest in the Alps, where you can set up a picnic or swim to take advantage of the fresh mountain air. The greatest way to reward yourself for all those calories you’ve expended climbing the Alps is with a supper at the tiny yet classy Stangl-Alm, which has a fireplace and top-to-bottom wood panelling as a great backdrop for shaking off the cold.

This enormous multi-hotel health resort complex is an hour outside of Zurich and is centred on the Tamina Gorge’s soothing thermal springs.
