Combining wellness with luxury travel: how to find the best places to stay

Yoga vacations, healing holidays, detox breaks… wellness tourism is here to stay. With such a plethora of options available, undoubtedly the hardest part about combining wellness with luxury travel is finding the right retreat.

Yoga, health and wellness retreat specialist collaborates with the most trusted yoga and wellness retreats around the world. Whether your’re after a digital detox in Bali, beachside pampering in Thailand or a restful weekend closer to home, Yovada has come up with ten tips for finding the perfect break.

Wellness concierge 

Even if you’re a seasoned spa seeker and know where you’d like to go, booking via a personal concierge service can be a great choice. A good concierge can offer a much more tailored approach to your personal requirements for a more exclusive experience.

Beautiful surroundings

Whether it’s detox, yoga, meditation, Ayurveda or any other retreat, the idea of a wellness break is to appreciate the world’s beauty while honouring yourself. Whatever your escape, surround yourself with beauty.

Yovada’s portfolio includes luxury properties that are as beautiful indoors as they are out, from a retreat embraced in the arms of a quartz mountain in Costa Rica, to a Balinese hideaway nestled within a private organic valley.

Location, location, location

While your concierge should be able to guide you, consider your destination carefully. With its energising rain forests, sweeping paddy fields and enchanting temples, Ubud in Bali has become a world renowned wellness hub. Meanwhile Puntarenas in Costa Rica is a great choice for holidaymakers looking to combine a health-focused break with some of the best surfing in the world. The world is your oyster.

Trust in a name

When booking, look for trusted names, qualified experts and be sure to check independent reviews. Yovada collaborates with the most trusted wellness retreats. Their luxury wellness centres include the iconic Ananda Spa in the Himalayas, as well as lesser known boutique retreats, all featuring qualified experts in often very specialised fields.

Booking process

Booking the perfect yoga or wellness retreat should be easy and stress-free. On Yovada you can easily search, browse, compare and book retreats worldwide instantly. Yovada guarantees that the price cannot be beaten and if you need to cancel they offer a free cancellation policy.

Personal goals

Determine your personal goals. Yovada likes to challenge clients to step out of their comfort zone. Whether it’s welcoming the sensational ease after a challenging yoga class, or appreciating the calm release following a peaceful meditation, theirr retreats stay with their clients long after the journey home. From a 60-day lifestyle change programme in Koh Samui, to weekend spa pampering in Europe, Yovada offers something for every goal.

Experts at every level

When booking a wellness break, look for experts at every layer of the organisation. It’s not just about the yoga teachers, but the whole staff network should be aligned in a holistic approach for your wellbeing. Yovada’s team has explored the world practicing yoga as students and teachers. Their individual skills and experience bring them unique qualities, and they are all truly passionate about the wellness sector.

Especially for you

The options for a wellness retreat have never been so great, so look for highly specialized retreats which will suit your personal needs. From Ayurveda panchakarma detox in India to healing spas in Bali, Yovada offers a huge portfolio of different breaks to cater to the most specific of requirements.


As well as scenic beauty and ambience, consider the facilities. Cutting edge detox centres, ocean fronted yoga pavilions, martial arts training grounds, infinity relaxation pools… their luxury health retreats feature some of the most decadent, and well equipped spas in the world.

Try something new

While the benefits of yoga and personal wellness are timeless, the range of retreats worldwide has never been so great. It would be a shame not to take advantage. Why not experiment with some surf lessons alongside your usual spa holiday? Or try a raw food diet detox? Book a one-to-one specialist health consultation.

Yovada features only trusted centres, so clients can try new properties and retreats safe in the knowledge that they’ll be in very safe hands.
