1. INDIAN OCEAN REMEDIES
Let’s face it, we could all do with a little bit of wellbeing TLC at the moment, and Anantara Kihavah Maldives has something up its sleeve. Having just opened its newly-renovated overwater spa and wellness centre, the resort has extended its range of immune boosting treatments, and introduced a resident naturopath and nutritionist for ultimate top-to-toe health. Set in the UNESCO Biosphere of the Baa Atoll, the six-treatment room spa also has a Finnish-style sauna, an infra-red sauna, an outdoor hot plunge pool, a cold plunge pool and a whole range of immune and body boosting treatments. Book the Stay Longer Special offer for optimum wellbeing, and stay three-to-six nights to receive 20 per cent savings, with daily breakfast and dinner, with children staying and dining for free.
2. WHEN NATURE CALLS
Known for its tropical climate and life-affirming natural side, wellness travellers often seek out Thailand in a bid to soak up its healing powers. Capitalising on a surge in transformative travel, Banyan Tree has launched a new Wellbeing Sanctuary at its properties in Koh Samui and Krabi, rolling out a new healthy-living concept. The resort has dedicated a selection of pool villas and suites to holistic and wellness pursuits, that include yoga and exercise equipment, an infinity pool, private garden and in-suite dining. Guests at both resorts will immerse themselves on a self-guided holistic itinerary, focused around Banyan Tree’s ‘8 Pillars’ principle, that includes Dietary Awareness, Physical Vitality, Harmony with Nature and Bonding & Connection. With each resort surrounded by nature, you're sure to emerge rested and revitalised.
3. AN ENCHANTING EXPERIENCE
Marrakech is rich pickings for the culturally-curious, with its palaces, mosques, gardens and riads. See it all from Mandarin Oriental in ancient Essaouira. Just a short drive from Marrakech’s centre, the area has a beautiful natural bay, bustling bazaars, charming open-air cafés and seafood by boat-load. The hotel’s ‘Discover Essaouira’ package offers a three-night stay, with airport transfers, breakfast, a limousine to and from Essaouira, a private guided tour (including ‘Mogador’ medina and Game of Thrones filming locations), a rooftop seafood lunch and sunset aperitifs in the Argan Wine Valley.
4. CHARMED, I'M SURE
A charming Mediterranean port city in Egypt, Alexandria has the very best of city and sea experiences, popular whatever the weather. Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano amps up the charm with its perfect location in the middle of the city, unobstructed views of the Med and the opportunity to drink in magical sunsets, ethereal city views and the soporific sound of lapping waves - all in a day. The Alexandria Getaway offer gifts guests 15 per cent off room rates, daily breakfast and a further 15 per cent of spa treatments. To maximise Alexandria’s sun-kissed vibes, enjoy a breezy Beach Villa, with bags of outdoor space, dining and living areas, private terrace and pool and sprawling sea views. Eat everything from pizza to mezze or seafood, and linger longer by the pool or the spa to indulge mind, body and soul.
