Why a wellness holiday is the perfect return to travel post-pandemic

An all-inclusive trip can reduce pressure when travelling

For some travellers, returning to travel may bring with it anxiety and stress due to a long hiatus from travel combined with the pressures of meeting government and airline COVID requirements.

Starting with an all-inclusive wellness trip can reduce a lot of the pressure. Inclusions such as airport transfers, breakfast, accommodation, spa treatments and activities can take the stress out of planning your return to travel.

On a recent trip to Bali, I stayed at Revivo Wellness Resorts and the experience was fully inclusive, eliminating any logistical headaches and easing the burden of increased demands now associated with travel.

On arrival at the airport, a VIP fast-track service can be obtained to ensure you progress quickly and easily through the immigration and customs check points and gain your required visa. Your luggage is collected by an attendant and comfortable return airport transfers are included.

Upon arrival at the resort, a program is provided and tailored to your individual needs, based on the information you provide in a pre-arrival questionnaire. The program is flexible and you can make adjustments with the wellness consultant at any time.

The package includes morning and evening rituals for waking and sleeping, classes for varying levels of fitness, and wellness treatments for your mind and body such as yoga meditations and massage.

Meals are selected for you and you can tailor them as you wish. The resort is fully equipped with accessible facilities that encourage relaxation across various lounges, a swimming pool, lush gardens, fish ponds, a jungle swing and a hot tub that can be used by guests any time during their stay.

The important aspect of a wellness retreat is the intention to nourish your mind and body, inside and out. Most retreats feature healthy food and limited alcohol, rest, exercise, spa treatments, mindfulness and beautiful surroundings.

Recognising the impacts of the pandemic, both mental and physical, and easing yourself into travel at a wellness retreat is a gentle way to revitalise and reconnect with yourself. There are a plethora of wellness trips on offer at varying price points, lengths of stay, and inclusions.

A holiday that allows you to focus on the mind and body has proven to be a conscious way to return to travel while disconnecting from stress.
