Wellness Retreats Guide 2023
2023 could be the year of Wellness Travel! Our Wellness Retreats Guide helps you find the wellness retreat that works best for you.
Keep scrolling for a list of upcoming retreats from WTA Members, but first, we would like to define Wellness Retreats.
According to the WTA’s Glossary of Wellness Tourism Industry Terms, in today’s world, the term Wellness Retreat has two definitions:
- A Wellness Retreat is a guided, intention-driven, multi-day program with a set or semi-set schedule and hosted by one or more facilitators. The program may include learning and lifestyle workshops such as meditation and healthy eating, as well as fitness activities such as yoga, nature walks and hiking.
- A Wellness Retreat is a smaller facility with accommodations and hospitality services, and where the primary purpose is to provide programs and experiences for the Wellness Traveler. The facility may have fewer wellness activities, services and facilities than a Wellness Resort.
With this new Wellness Retreats Guide, we are embracing definition #1: “A guided, intention-driven, multi-day program with a set or semi-set schedule, and hosted by one or more facilitators.”
The following is a list of Wellness Retreats from WTA Members, with descriptions, dates and each with a link to more info and/or how to book. Hoping you find the perfect fit! And if you are still in the planning stages, here’s a list of questions and considerations from Travel to Wellness to help you do just that. Alternatively, you can also reach out to one of our Member Travel Advisors listed in the WTA Directory.
