If the last time you enjoyed some serious me-time was pre-children, it’s time to get your life back in balance. Start by planning a weekend wellness retreat for you and your beau (no kids allowed). Repeat after me: restore, rejuvenate and relax… Ahhh!
We’ve asked our friends at Wellbeing Escapes, the UK’s leading wellbeing travel experts, to recommend their Top 5 retreats for busy mums who, quite simply, need a break…
- Reiki recovery in Dorset
If the middle of scenic Dorset, Middle Piccadilly Rural Spa offers an intimate retreat. Try the Wellbeing Booster which includes a full body holistic massage, foot reflexology or Indian head massage, an exfoliating body scrub, a healing Reiki session or organic facial. Best of all, the spa, which is full board, caters for only a handful of people at a time. That’s total privacy guaranteed.
- Yoga wind-down in Marbella
The ideal quick, sunny getaway, Shanti Som Retreat in Marbella, Spain, is nestled in the stunning Sierra de Las Nievas Nature Park. The Wellbeing Booster break has been especially designed to help you completely unwind. Enjoy group yoga classes, complimentary use of the oriental sauna, steam room and swimming pool, relaxing body massage and healthy half board. Bliss.
- Healing spa waters in Malaga
Soothe your aches and pains in Villa Padierna’s Spanish spa waters enriched with natural minerals. Indulge all of your senses with a choice of full body massage, natural mineral wrap, thermal circuit sessions and access to the swimming pool, sauna, gym and relaxation area. Now that’s healing time.
- Self and health in Italy
Designed to help you get back on track, Lefay Resort and Spa in Italy starts with a Life Learning consultation to help you reach your goals. A stress-relieving treatment such as a ‘Verde Blu’ Facial or a Reflexology session follows. Plus R&R here includes your own private yoga, pilates or Qi gong session, as well as complete access to Lefay Spa World (to you and me, that means indoor/outdoor salt-water heated pools, sauna, a relaxation grotto and more!). How very Zen.
- Ayurvedic R&R in Austria
Located only a couple of hours away from the UK, Schloss Pichlarn Spa and Golf Resort in Austria combines Ayurvedic consultations and massage treatments such as an Abhyanga, Shirodhara or Pada Abhyanga. There’s Nordic Walking and private personal training on tap too. Enjoy full access to the gym and tennis courts, yoga classes and the extensive Linden Spa facilities. Count us in!
