A Healthy Mind
Seven must-visit luxury wellness retreats

Being constantly connected makes it almost impossible to find time to really switch off. Even on holiday, people maintain their morning run and keep up with emails – often finding it difficult to accept detaching from work. In the spirit of ensuring you take care of your mind, body and soul, we’ve rounded up seven luxury wellness resorts and retreats that are a must-visit.

Gaia Retreat & Spa, Byron Bay, Australia

Located in the tranquil setting of Byron Bay, New South Wales, the Gaia Retreat & Spa is one of Australia’s most awarded boutique wellness retreats. Founded in 2005 by Grease star, Olivia Newton-John, the resort focuses on pampering and relaxation, offering guests the option to create a completely bespoke experience during their stay. The retreat gives the ability for guests to totally disconnect as there are no phones and limited WiFi access. There’s a range of activities from yoga to meditation to boxing to organic cooking classes and more. There’s also a luxury spa giving your body and skin the rejuvenation it deserves.

What we recommend: The Detox Deluxe. This package cleanses, rebalances and restores your body. During the treatment you will experience a steam room session with an organic Dead Sea salt polish with green tea and minerals which aim to stimulate the body’s lymphatic system. Guests are then wrapped in a body masque full of purifying minerals, which helps flush toxins out of the body.
