Wellness resorts are the perfect spots to cleanse your mind, body and soul. Whether you are longing to spend a week (or more) in nature or needing a complete reboot to your system, the Caribbean has wellness retreats where you can spend time doing exactly what you want to do.
Best of all, these resorts are located amongst lush and natural surroundings of the Caribbean, so even if you just need a week to yourself and completely shut off from the world, you’ll be able to do just that. Here’s a round up of six wellness resorts in the Caribbean.
Wellness Resorts in Costa Rica
This eco-friendly wellness resort includes yoga retreats and yoga teacher training retreats, but there are also wellness retreats like Total Body and Mind Detox Retreat Program, which helps clear out emotional and mental blockages. A few highlights of what the package includes is local airfare from San Jose (SJO), 3 farm-to-table meals daily, twice daily organic juices, a detoxifying massage and so much more.
In your free time, you can spend your days chasing waterfalls or even gliding on kayaks through Costa Rican mangroves if you wish. You will truly get away from it all in the heart of Costa Rica.
While it is a yoga resort, this resort also has a 7-day Signature Retreat where guests can take part in daily yoga, meditation, surf lessons, fitness classes, salsa dancing and more amongst the beautiful surroundings of Costa Rica. This Balinese inspired wellness resort has 57 rooms with open-air showers. Guests can also expect to enjoy fresh juices and healthy food served throughout the hotel. This retreat is only offered on selected dates, so be sure to check the website for details.
This 18-room, boutique hotel is all about enjoying the natural and peaceful surroundings of Costa Rica and could be one of the reasons that it was recently ranked as the #6 Destination Spa Resort in the World by Conde Naste Traveler’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards.
If you’re looking for a wellness resort to fully detox, The Naked Challenge Signature Detox could be for you. This was developed by Diana Stobo, The Retreat owner who is also a wellness expert. To truly feel the results of the program, clients are recommended to “lose 10 lbs in 10 days,” and the experts at The Retreat are there to guide. The Naked Challenge helps with detoxing the blood and cleansing your internal organs, which can help with a numerous amount of health issues. 5 Infrared Sauna Therapies, 4 Healing Touch Experience Treatments, 3 Iconic Detox Treatments, are just some of what’s included.
