Four of the most relaxing retreats to escape to

We all need to treat ourselves from time to time, and after a rough 2020, care and consideration are at the forefront of our needs.

Not only are retreats good for the mind, body and soul, but they also prevent us from burning out if working too hard. They provide time to reflect, relax and revitalise – disconnecting you from the world and daily hardships and troubles.

We believe getting to your destination should be just as restful, which is why each craft in Vistajet’s fleet comes equipped with plush beds, furnished with fine linen and cashmere blankets, as well as a library of reading materials to help you unwind.

All that’s left to do is pick your location, and here are four of the most lavish relaxation retreats to rejuvenate yourself at.

Slow down with a spa break

There’s nothing more relaxing than lounging poolside with a refreshing drink in hand and a stunning view to marvel at.

At the Bellevue Hotel & Spa in Lošinj, Croatia, you can leave your worries at the door, totally separate from the world and free to submerge yourself one of the most luxurious relaxation retreats in Europe.

Inspired by the concept of inner and outer beauty, this retreat is complete with a spa clinic, a plethora of massages and treatments for all ages, and a soothing hair and scalp care salon to make you look good as well as feel your best.

Visitors can also benefit from Ultherapy – a facelift treatment that uses ultrasound energy to naturally tighten the skin without need for surgery.

Focus on wellness

Sticking to a routine can be difficult, whether it be keeping energised, working out, dieting or simply getting enough sleep.

In:Spa can help you realign in one of four stunning locations: Somerset, Tuscany, Southern France or Marrakech.

You can expect to receive pre-retreat detox advice, luxurious en-suite accommodation, gourmet detoxing meals, two daily yoga classes and two guided morning hikes.

Complete with deep tissue massages and unlimited fresh water and herbal tea, this wellbeing-orientated break is perfect for those trying to bring structure into their daily routine.

Find peace and tranquillity

For those looking for inner peace and balance in their lives, a pilgrimage to the village of Ulpotha, Sri Lanka will do just the trick. This mesmerising location is also very visually relaxing with its jungle surroundings and freshwater lake adorned with lotus flowers and immersive rustic wattle-and-daub hut accommodation.

Yoga and meditation retreats run in two-week stints and are available to book for six months of the year (November to March, then June to August).

This sanctuary includes a deliciously vibrant and nutritious vegetarian menu, a full day excursion and massage each week, two yoga classes each day and one consultation with an Ayurveda doctor – this is used to help find personal techniques that will release physical, emotional and mental stresses and encourage a happier, more fulfilled life.

Surrounded by nature, this retreat delivers the perfect setting for peaceful self-reflection.

Get fit and have fun!

If something more upbeat and uplifting is to your taste, Rancho La Puerta in Baja California, Mexico offers a personalised experience in utmost luxury.

Mountain trail runs, kickboxing or spiritual chanting – there is plenty more to raise the pulse in this simply stunning location, before bringing things back down to earth with instructor-led mindfulness sessions.

It’s not just running either. You’ll have the chance to try your hand at high-intensity sports like wild swimming and rock climbing and more relaxing fitness activities such as yoga and kayaking.

Whether you’re a novice or a pro, the ranch welcomes all fitness abilities. There are plenty of things to get stuck into at this retreat.
