The rise of wellness holidays
The global wellbeing industry is believed to be worth approximately $4.2 trillion. In fact, wellness holidays and retreats have experienced a 6.5% increase in popularity, which is double that of overall tourism, but what is so attractive about them?
Wellness holidays are a chance to disconnect from the distractions of everyday life. It’s an opportunity to get away from the stresses, responsibilities and pace of daily life and allow the mind to find a quiet space. Many wellness retreats are set in locations and surroundings that not only revive but inspire, therefore giving you the chance to reconnect with nature and focus on looking after the mind, body and soul.
