Just before the big wave of summer holidays has started, so well deserved after hard working months, we wish to consider for a moment the possibility of a holiday spent in a health resort.
We don’t have in mind a serious medical treatment but more the deep and beneficial relaxation for your body and mind.
Holidays are supposed to be fun, right? Life is all about balance and holidays should be no different. That is why we believe that the ideal holiday combines healthy activity so that you feel energized, a good dose of relaxation and over-indulgence on healthy food and vitamin D only. That’s why our idea of health retreats that don’t take themselves too seriously, are holiday winners and Croatia has slowly but surely taken this path in the locality we are, Kvarner and Istria. You can be as active as you wish, eat healthy, see the sights and end the day with a relaxing beach cocktail. Here are few reasons why a health retreat should be considered as your next break…
Travel involving late nights, much alcohol, heavy food and jam-packed days can leave you needing a holiday when you arrive home. One of the true revelations in a health retreat holiday could be how great you feel with a little self-care. A morning breathing exercise or swim in clear, refreshing sea waters, an optional midday surf or lesson from a selected sport (surfing, sailing, golf, horse riding, paragliding…), learning about aromatic herbs and its usage, optional afternoon Pilates or Yoga class and an evening massage will make you feeling amazing. These activities can vary and can be organized every second or third of the day.
Anyone who has travelled through places in summer months will know it can be chaotic and an over stimulation of all your senses. The hustle and bustle can be overwhelming and it’s hard to unwind. From the other hand, if you’re deep in a forest hugging trees you miss out on the true travel adventure. The health retreats are somewhere in between. They are usually in the heart of the smaller town and they possess their own serenity and rhythm. Further on, they are practically on a sea front which allows for immediate immersing in a swim, but also close enough to allow you a taste of shopping, culture and nightlife. You can easily get in touch with local guides and drivers for carefree get around times.
You and the likes
One thing many people love about travelling is the „camaraderie“ of staying in a company of new, interesting people. Whatever town you ended up in, you will meet a like-minded companions to have a drink with. Doing a health retreat is very similar. You are guaranteed to meet people just like you who prioritize enjoyment and living a healthy, balanced life.
Learn new things
The older we get the more we enjoy learning new things. A holiday is the perfect place and time to learn a new skill. The health retreats offer an exciting mix of optional activities for you to try like surfing, golf, horse riding or paragliding. Why not trying one that suits you? It feels good to watch your daily progressing by acquiring a new skill. We will ensure that your retreat has activities geared towards beginners with experienced tutors.
The work life balance is something few of us ever master. Add to that the challenge of enjoying a successful and consistent healthy life regime and a harmonious life can seem like a dream. What it may take is looking outside the square for fitness inspiration. A week of being active every day, trying new things and being guided by experts, without work and family stress, may be just the kick-start you need. What starts as inspiration can quickly lead to a lifelong habit.
Having rough holiday probably still pleases some but we believe that the most of us have a rule that holidays is going somewhere and staying in accommodation, that is nicer than home in some ways. Food, water and drinks are expected to be of high quality, too. The modern health retreats offer very comfortable accommodation, stylish surrounds and delicious, nourishing meals inspired by local tradition and skills, a pure cure for your body and mind.
