Nowadays we are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of natural environments. Indeed, getting back to nature can help with both physical and mental health, ensuring illness is kept at bay. Therefore, when planning your vacation this year, why not try something different and revitalizing?
Here are five vacations that will reinvigorate your whole life:
1 – Well-Being
To return yourself to top mental condition, opt for a specialist well-being and healing retreat. The Ascelpios Retreat in Costa Rica is one of the finest and focuses on redressing your balance and sense of harmony.
Costa Rica, part of Central America, is, in fact, a region where harmony and balance are vital. Respecting the environment and the democracy of the people are the characteristic features of this peace-loving country.
Bordering both the North Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea (between Panama and Nicaragua), Costa Rica enjoys a tropical climate and is home to some of the finest beaches in the world. At Ascelpios Retreat, you can combine the best that the country offers with the opportunity to reinvigorate your state of mind.
2 – A Culture Break
For a reinvigorating culture break, the Columbia Beach Resort, situated in Cyprus’s glorious southern region, is the ideal destination. Indeed, the region is rife with a mythological and historical heritage, courtesy of the Roman and Ottoman Empires and the Crusaders who rebuilt much of the barren lands.
The architecture here then is both beautiful and interesting; the myths and legends of the lands fascinating and intriguing. Indeed, this is said to be the very place where Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, was born. It is also the region that Anthony gifted to Cleopatra. Cyprus thus remains ideal for romance and escape, the timeless villages and rugged countryside perfect for a little peace and love.
3 – Reconnection
However, if you are feeling a little out of sorts with the world, your loved ones included, then a visit to Sogna di Guilietta, said to be the most romantic destination on the planet could be the place to go to get yourself reconnected. Why the most romantic destination on the planet? Well, Sogno di Guilietta is housed within Juliet’s courtyard (yes, that’s Romeo’s Juliet) directly in front of the famous balcony itself.
Located in the heart of Verona — a short walk from the Arena di Verona — Sogno di Guilietta has a plethora of romantic eateries, charming spots for roaming and a luxury that will have you feeling reinvigorated and reconnected in no time.
4 – Redressing Burnout
The vast majority of us have experienced burnout at some point. If you are there at the moment, a visit to Kalari Kovilakom in Kerala, India could be just the tonic. Situated in the ancient Ayureda Palace the focus here is on meditation and yoga.
Set in a lush environment of coconut trees and herbs at the bottom of the Annamalai Hills, Kalari Kovilakom, is ideal for recovering your sense of serenity and inner peace, leaving you feeling as fresh and reinvigorated as a teenager.
5 – Fitness
Finally, you may feel that it is your general fitness levels that need some attention. If so, then a stay at the Real Boot Camp, situated between Moraria and Calpe towards the eastern Spanish peninsular of Northern Costa Blanca, will soon have you back in shape.
Surrounded by the clear waters of the Mediterranean, vineyards, farmlands and orange groves, the camp is located in what is regarded as among the healthiest places on the planet. Your natural rhythm will soon return as you raise your fitness in an atmosphere of laid back calm.
