A welcome escape from reality. State-of-the-art wellness immersions where relaxation and rejuvenation are top of the agenda.
Vacations, by their very definition, are about taking a break from reality, the daily grind, the ‘norm’. For some, this means new experiences, landscapes, cultures, and gastronomies. The chance to broaden horizons and embrace new challenges. For others, it represents the opportunity to reset, focus-in, and take time to restore balance and tranquillity.
Turks and Caicos is, by its very nature, awash with opportunities for thrill-seekers, and culture-vultures, and yet, this Atlantic paradise is especially welcoming to those who want their vacations to epitomise wellness and calm. If your definition of a vacation is rest and rejuvenation, then here you really are spoilt for choice.
Combining nature with nurture
Let’s start our journey on the shores of a 7,000-hectare nature reserve, overlooking the crystal-clear waters of Northwest Point Marine National Park. The offshore coral reefs here are said to be some of the world’s best and Amanyara works hard to bring the island’s natural beauty into its mindfulness and stress management retreats.
These customisable immersions focus on restoring balance and incorporate fitness, bodywork, stress management, and mindfulness. Personalized experiences designed to make sure you leave feeling less stressed and more focused – armed with the knowledge and tools to bring calm into your day-to-day life.
A typical day starts with a wellness class, followed by breakfast (a nutritious feast prepared by chefs using organic products from the resort’s vegetable garden, as well as vibrant tropical fruits.) Next comes pilates, meditation, qigong, or personal fitness – it really is your choice. After lunch there’s a wellness therapy session and spa treatment, followed by dinner.
With so much on offer, creating your personal daily schedule won’t be easy, but Amanyara has that covered too, offering both one-day and multi-day retreats. Here, you really can have it all. Discover more…
