As countries start to reopen their borders, people are showing an interest in immunity-boosting wellness holidays, ones that allow you to be at a safe, social distance — and where you can get your yoga and spa fix! Wellness experts Health and Fitness Travel have compiled a list of some of the best places to go if you’re in need of an immunity boost. Think of it as your passport to immunity! All are wellness resorts that allow you to feel remote as you refresh mind and body and regain control after the crazy year that was 2020.
Longevity Cegonha Country Club, Portugal.
Give your body and mind the post-lockdown boost it needs with a wellness escape in the Mediterranean sunshine. Choose from a variety of fitness, detox and relaxation programmes, and with the reduced capacity and regular sanitation throughout the retreat, social distancing won’t be a problem. Safety is considered throughout the resort, with room service available, should you want your meals in the privacy of your room, plus controlled use of the gym and pool areas, and reduced capacity for classes.
Seven nights at Longevity Cegonha Country Club from £900pp or £1,165 for single occupancy. Price includes breakfast, a fitness programme and return private transfers.
Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort, Crete.
Indulge in holistic treatments and Ayurveda aromatherapies as you look out onto the stunning views of the Cretan coast. The ample sanitiser dispensers are hardly noticeable among the world-class spa and fitness facilities, and the re-organised and allocated sunshades offer you complete privacy and safety. Combine this with the socially-distanced restaurants providing fresh seafood and Greek delicacies, and this healthy holiday is sure to cure your lockdown blues.
