Holistic retreats and all-inclusive resorts offer a simplified guide back to health, balance and wellness. Often secluded in picturesque locations, resorts provide an escape from the stress and unhealthy habits of day-to-day life.

 

Focus on relaxation through nature, nutrition and a variety of healthy activities at Haramara Retreat in Nayarit, Mexico. Situated on a hillside overlooking the ocean and wildlife, the secluded resort provides picturesque rustic views from the resort’s open-air spa, yoga pavilions, restaurants, guestroom balconies and palm-thatched huts along the property.

Take to the private beach for some sun, surf and relaxation or head to the Haramara infinity pool overlooking lush tropical surroundings. Enjoy healthy meals at the on-site organic vegetarian restaurants before heading to the wellness center. The entire retreat sits on 12 acres of undeveloped land that guests may choose to explore.

 

Between yoga classes, take the five-minute drive to Sayulita. Guests shop, dine and enjoy the hustle and bustle of this lively, but laidback beach town. Without electricity, TV, WiFi or air conditioning, Haramara is an ideal locale for the ultimate escape from everyday life.

 

Get back to nature stateside at the Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Ariz. Dive into wellness and balanced living with the retreat’s many programs seeking inner peace and healthy practices. Guests enjoy spa days while learning new exercise techniques and nutritional assistance with on-site professionals.

Engage specialists in every field from spirituality, medicine, exercise, nutrition, life management and physiology in a stress-free environment. Guests enjoy outdoor yoga, hiking and swimming with a blend of structured classes in between — all encouraging guests to try new activities from rock climbing to the challenging ropes course.

 

With a main dining room, demo kitchen and poolside café offering clean, wholesome and seasonal ingredients, every meal is healthy and expertly prepared. Canyon Ranch is alcohol free and offers four-night minimum stays, optimizing guest’s retreat back to health and wellness.
