As the weather begins to brighten and the April showers start, we’re all used to the concept of spring-cleaning our homes, a-la Marie Kondo—but how about our bodies and minds? With at least a long weekend, and often a little more, the Easter break is the perfect time to give yourself a little self-love with a wellness retreat. Offering the chance to detox the system, reset emotionally, or give your clarity of mind, these Easter retreats around the world are the kind of spring clean you really should make time for.
Join this Easter special of the award-winning Body:Reset retreat at 38º North in Ibiza, Spain for an intensive health reboot like no other. Through a variety of high and low-intensity activities such as boxing, core and abs workouts, Pilates, yoga, strength building and stretching, guests can gain a more holistic understanding of their physical and mental health to make sustainable life changes once they return home. Every retreat is hosted and run by 38º North founders Claire and James Davis, so you’ll have personal attention, support and years of expertise to help you meet your wellness goals.
For a unique, boundary-pushing experience, look no further than Aro Hā’s five-night adventure in New Zealand’s Southern Alps. The immersive retreat offers an action-packed schedule of hiking, yoga, and dynamic movement with plenty of time to reflect and grow through integrated mindfulness practices like meditation and journaling. The vegetarian cuisine is designed to energise and detox the body, while the remote location of this eco-retreat will help you disconnect from the digital world and rediscover the wonder of nature.
Wellness retreats are often pitched as a solo activity, but REVĪVŌ Resort in the luxe neighbourhood of Nusa Dua, Bali, is hosting an exclusive one-off six-night family yoga retreat with adult and child yoga specialist Marie-Caroline Peponnet. Parents and children alike can discover the mental and physical benefits of yoga, instilling a positive relationship with fitness and health in the whole family while offering a unique bonding experience across generations.
If you’re looking to spring clean mind, body and soul, Gwinganna Health Retreat’s seven-night detox is the ultimate luxury retreat to treat yourself to this Easter. The remote eco-resort in Queensland’s hinterland provides guests with a dedicated menu of detoxifying organic meals and snacks, wellbeing analysis and wellness seminars, and access to the resort’s fitness facilities throughout guest’s stay to promote healthy lifestyle changes. With two dates around Easter—April 14th to 21st, or April 25th to May 2nd—there’s plenty of options to suit your timetable.
