WHY EVERYONE SHOULD TRY A WELLNESS VACATION
If you think all wellness vacations are just about juice cleanses and meditation, think again. From taking an aquatic spin class to enjoying fresh, local seafood; there are a number of ways to have a killer vacation, while feeding your mind, body, and spirit.
Pamper and Palate
Here are 6 things to keep in mind when booking your next wellness vacation.
1. Pampering Rejuvenates
What’s a vacation without a spa treatment? Treating yourself to a little shameless pampering during your resort vacation not only helps clear tension and re-establish emotional well-being, but it can even aid in better quality sleep and fewer sick days, says research.
At the Palace Resorts’ Awe Spa, your skin isn’t the only thing that will feel like a million bucks. Treatments like the Kukulcan Mayan, based on a sacred Mayan ritual where 4 hands work on you simultaneously, and the therapeutic Fish Spa treatment, which involves Garra Rufa Fish that nibble at your feet stimulating blood flow and circulation, are designed to leave you rejuvenated in both body and spirit.
2. Eat Like a Local
Part of a great vacation is indulging in whatever you want to eat, right? But just because you’re on a healthy getaway, doesn’t mean you have to stick to carrot sticks and green juices.
Destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico are a great chance to enjoy all manner of tasty locally sourced foods. For example, at Moon Palace Jamaica in Ocho Rios, you can enjoy Jamaica’s fresh, local seafood delicacies at any one of the resort’s 4 restaurants. Indulge in dishes like ackee and saltfish which are not only a great source of protein but also improve heart health and bone strength. Or grab a plate of the island’s signature jerk fish, which has a blend of healthful (and delicious) spices.
