You heard it here first: holiday indulgence doesn’t have to mean unhealthy. In fact, a holiday could actually be better for your health than you expect, with 2017 seeing a rise in the ‘wellness holiday’.
What is a wellness holiday? Don’t worry; it’s not all about wheatgrass and silence. Put simply, a wellness holiday is one where you take the time to pay attention to your mind, body and soul truly. That means switching off your iPhone and switching on vacation-mode.
Sound appealing? You wouldn’t be the first to take the plunge. According to a recent article in the Huffington Post:
‘Wellness travel is growing 50% faster than regular travel, with travelers recognizing that recharging, refreshing and rejuvenating themselves regularly is part of a healthy work-life balance.’
At Constance, we believe that wellness should be a focus in everybody’s life. That’s why we’ve put together three ways in which Constance Hotels & Resorts can help you take care of your mind, body and soul, on your next Indian Ocean holiday.
With our ever busy lives, always on demand, a bit of a switch off is always helpful to clear your mind and de-stress. So why not put down your smartphone and pick up a yoga mat instead? At Constance Halaveli and Constance Lemuria, we offer private sunrise yoga and sunset meditation classes, on the beautiful serenity of the beach.
If that’s a bit too energetic, the ultimate switch off at Constance Tsarabanjina can be found reclining on a sun lounger, listening to the sounds of the nature and the waves surrounding you.
You’d be surprised at how much tension your body builds up in the normal 9-5. To get rid of those knots, why not have a full body massage, or take the pressure off your feet with a pedicure at USpa – our Constance spas?
Take care of your inner body, with the help of Rosanna Davison – the former Miss World and qualified nutritionist. Rosanna has custom designed a wellness menu in conjunction with Michael Scioli – one of our top chefs – exclusively for Constance, to ensure that you can eat clean during your stay.
The soul is what gives rise to our imagination, passion, emotions and creativity. Why not seize the time on your wellness holiday to discover and fuel these traits?

Explore your heart’s passions by doing something which brings you genuine pleasure. Dare to try new activities and dare to let go. From golfing to diving, at each Constance hotel, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
A wellness holiday is also a good time to look inward and be thankful. For what you have and also where you are. Try taking a moment to soak in the beauty of your surroundings, and be thankful for them.
Finally, it sounds so simple, but the ultimate in wellness comes from a healthy dose of ‘vitamin-sea‘.
Let the Indian Ocean sunshine and surroundings nourish your soul, at our ‘True by Nature’ hotels and resorts.
With your mind, body and soul perfectly refreshed at Constance, when you return home from your wellness holiday, you’ll be ready to take on the world – or at least get through your unpacking!
