‘Wellcation’ it’s a vacation to restore your wellness.
Some call it a healthy holiday, others a retreat but the latest catch phrase is ‘wellcation’ and they are all about the same type of escape where you recharge, rejuvenate and restore your body, mind and soul in a place that offers healthy food, a clean environment and places that provide relaxation and activities such as yoga and spa treatments.
The new health trend.
It seems to be the latest trend, however Noosa has always been a destination for relaxation and healthy lifestyle and for over 15 years ikatan Spa has been the place to go to for some much needed care and time out.
The trend towards a wellcation is largely due to the fact that people live such busy, stressful lives and vacations have to be spent restoring health to be able to keep up the pace of the life they will return to. Healthy Holidays are also about making the most of the time you have to slow down, sleep better, clear your mind and rejuvenate your body.
What do people do on a wellcation?
Escape somewhere nice, usually for about three nights and include time at a day spa, a quiet place to stay, places to walk or swim, a place to do yoga and activities like stand-up paddle boarding or walking, eat healthy and most of all catch up on sleep and reading as the desired list of a wellcation inclusions.
Some people are into detoxing while others like to drink good wine and coffee and as long as you find it relaxing and de-stressing then it’s going to work for you.
Techno down time.
Try to have some technology free time on a wellcation by doing activities where you won’t or can’t take your laptop, phone or ipad. People survived well without devices before they were invented and it’s easy to put an ‘out of office’ on emails and post an ‘I’m having a week off social media’ on your social media sites.
If you had a long haul flight, a stay in a no wifi zone area or hospital for a week the world you live in would survive without you in it. I say this quite often to people and it makes them realise it is ok to check out of your busy world once in a while.
Benefit of day spa retreat.
A popular inclusion for Wellcation’s, or for those who can only escape for a day, is a Retreat Day which are only offered at ikatan Spa Noosa. Imagine a day dedicated to restoring mind, body and soul, an all inclusive personalised day like no other, because we are not all the same.
Escape on your own, with a friend or partner and all you have to do is contact ikatan Spa and one of our co-ordinators will organise everything for you with one phone call or via email.
Busy people need a spa co-ordinator.
Book a spa retreat where Some people are so overwhelmed with their life and work that they don’t have time to think about booking a break for themselves let alone think about what they want to do before they get there. That’s when you need to contact a business who will organise everything for you.
TIP: The other option is to give yourself a day off when you arrive in your chosen destination to just plan what you want to do during your time away. You will need to pre book some special occasions such as day spa but there are plenty of activities you can book the day before such as standup paddle lesson.
Extend your stay.
If you have time and want to extend your time in Noosa or Sunshine Coast area there are many personal trainers, gyms and yoga classes in the area that offers bespoke fitness and lifestyle packages for a few hours to organising an entire healthy holiday for you.
TIP: You will also find the Sunshine Coast an easy place to find healthy, vegan, organic cafes and stores to buy amazing food or book a private chef to cook for you or give you a private cooking class.
No mater where you live or your budget you can have a Wellcation dedicated to what you need to restore your sanity by checking out of your day to day life and checking into somewhere that you can totally relax, doing the things that make you feel happy and healthy.
Caring for yourself is not indulgent, it’s survival.
