If your mind, body and soul are in serious need of some tender loving care but so is your bank balance, check out these affordable wellness retreats around the country.
Relaxing, re-energising, and sometimes even emotional. Wellness retreats can be all of these things, but, let’s face it, they can also be expensive.
With that said, affordable retreats do in fact exist. There are retreats that, come bill-settling time, won’t see your newfound calm swept out the window. You just have to know where to look. Or, we can help you.
Ylang, the latest member of Heritage Line’s ship collection in Lan Ha Bay, features a splendid blend of Asian-Vietnamese design with French-Colonial accents. This ancient flair of Indochina emanates throughout the vessel with a delicate floral leitmotif inspired by local poetry and related to the four seasons of the year. Local artisans have contributed to Ylang’s décor with hand-crafted paintings and artwork using various materials and techniques. All suites are dedicated to a particular blossom which typically represents a season in Vietnam.
Ylang has only ten spacious suites on two decks with floor-to-ceiling panoramic doors which open onto a private balcony. What makes Ylang unique is her expansive spa area. The focus on wellness is enhanced with dynamic activities such as yoga or early morning Tai Chi lessons.
Ylang’s cruise program underscores the vessel’s tranquil feel with leisure activities such as cycling, hiking and kayaking in the serene natural surroundings on a three-day journey aptly named “Senses of Lan Ha”. Discover this amazing cruise retreat here!
Join us for an all-inclusive week of yoga, eating great food, culinary and experience the famous Greek hospitality and love of life!
It is said that Crete’s greatest treasure is to be found in its cuisine. This magical island was also home to Europe’s oldest civilisation, a 4000-year-old cultural path that weaves its way to the present. We have created this Culture and Gastronomy yoga holiday, to celebrate these two great riches, and allow you to experience them firsthand. Combined with refreshing yoga classes and breathtaking nature we hope you will leave us enriched, rejuvenated and inspired.
The retreat is open to all. Our retreats are usually a wonderful mix of solo travellers, couples, friends, mothers and daughters, members of the LGBTQ community. We have a maximum group size of just ten people as we prefer the family atmosphere of small groups.
We will start each day with a morning yoga class and there is a second yoga class every evening. Most classes will take place by the pool although some classes will be held in beautiful locations during excursions. The style is predominately Hatha yoga and the classes are suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced. Pranayama and meditation will also be practiced and there will be a Five Tibetans workshop during one of the classes.
Each guest will have one treatment included as part of the retreat in the comfort of the villa. More treatments are available upon request.
