Wellness Retreats 2020: Top Hotel Picks For An Overdue Escape.
As the world of travel is gradually starting to open up, we’ve listed the hottest wellness retreats for 2020 together with luxury members club, Little Emperors.
From tailored tech-focused fitness experiences at the Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards to physical and nutritional activities at the newly opened La Reserve Geneva, these wellness retreats are set to be hot favourites for when travel bans are lifted and life returns to normal.
Rebecca Masri, Founder of Little Emperors Luxury Members Club comments: “Wellness has already been an increasing underlying theme in the travel industry. Health awareness, mindfulness and wellbeing are at the forefront of people’s agenda, and I believe this trend influences future travel plans. A few years ago, ‘Wellness Travel’ would have meant nothing more than a hotel with a gym and sauna to most people. Today, the growing demand has led to the opening of many great hotels offering all different types of wellness, from weight loss, detox, fitness, recovery, rejuvenation, relaxation, yoga, detox, beauty, medical, stress relief.. even tantric!”.
