Wellness Retreats Guide 2024

2024 could very well be THE year of Wellness Travel! Our Wellness Retreats Guide helps you find the wellness retreats that works best for you.

Keep scrolling for a list of upcoming retreats, but first we’d like to define Wellness Retreats.

According to the Wellness Tourism Association, in today’s world, the term Wellness Retreat has two definitions:

#1 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.

#2 A Wellness Retreat is a smaller facility with accommodations and hospitality services, and where the primary purpose is to provide programs and  experience for the Wellness Traveler. The facility may have fewer wellness activities, services and facilities than a Wellness Resort.

With this new Travel to 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, with descriptions, dates and links to more info and/or how to book.  Hoping you find the perfect fit! Here’s a list of questions and considerations to help you do just that.
