This vacation is a chance to escape your usually hectic routine to focus on your wellness, both mental and physical. You’ll retreat from the demands of your day-to-day life so you can decompress in a magical setting.
- Awaken your senses with something unfamiliar: Seek out sunrise beach yoga or an ancient stones massage in the on-site spa. Try a mud bath known among locals for its restorative properties.
- Keep a familiar exercise routine, but in a breathtaking setting: Feel the ocean breeze on your face as you run at the resort’s edge.
