A holiday should be a time to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul whether as part of a wider way of life or as a one-off experience. If you’re a yoga-lover, detox-pro or fitness-fanatic, you’ll no doubt be passionate about your time spent at spas and retreats and be looking for specifics when choosing a break away. Or this precious time off could be your only opportunity to truly kick back and relax and give yourself the TLC you require.

Either way, at ITC Luxury Travel we take the wellbeing of our clients very seriously and want to offer you the most luxurious destinations and ideal environments for health and wellbeing escapes. Which is why we have put together a collection of destinations that we believe do just that.

Our selection of hotels, resorts and spas provide a combination of elements to suit. If you’ve been desperate to try a new diet, why not explore the world-renowned SHA Wellness Clinic with its famous macrobiotic clinic? Or Kamalaya in Koh Samui will give you the space you need to practice yoga to your hearts content. Or perhaps a medical procedure is just what the doctor ordered? In which case Parkhotel Igls is certainly worth a closer look. Alternatively you can call one of our Travel Specialists for first-hand knowledge of all of these relaxing destinations and they’ll be more than happy to offer top tips and suggestions.

With a hugely accepted following among A-list celebrities and indeed the wider public in the UK, yoga and Pilates retreats, both home and abroad, have grown in popularity in recent years. Both movement therapies have a strong mind and body link to them, are suitable for those of any age and will increase muscle strength and flexibility.

The origins of yoga are in India where some 2,000 years ago the physical, mental and spiritual practice was developed to attain a state of peace and tranquility. It has often been associated with improving lower back pain while the meditative aspect can do much to ease the mind. Those who are already fans of the therapy should take a look at the week-long Yoga Programme at Absolute Sanctuary which allows guests to have unlimited access to the Absolute Yoga Centre.

Pilates is a newer routine – developed by Joseph Pilates in New York in the early twentieth century. Joseph believed in an intrinsic link between mental and physical health and that balanced exercise could often remedy illness. Although it was originally seen as a recovery method for injured dancers it soon became apparent that the benefits of Pilates were far wider reaching.
The ITC Luxury Travel yoga and Pilates destinations offer a wealth of different programmes and disciplines – so whether you’re new to the practice or an old hand looking to hone your skills – we’ve got the retreat to suit.

Fitness holidays are a great way to get yourself on the road to fitness again or work towards a goal such as weight-loss for a wedding or metabolism-building for a marathon.

Our portfolio of fitness resorts ranges from St Lucia’s The BodyHoliday where you can take classes in everything from Body Dance to tennis, to Portugal’s Longevity Wellness Resort with Power Plate or boxing sessions.

Many of our destinations will combine your fitness programme with nutritional aspects to ensure you’re also fuelling your body with the right ingredients. Or why not look into our hardcore bootcamps to truly ‘feel the burn’ and blast those calories?

Set in some of the world’s most luxurious, picturesque spots, our fitness breaks are also the ideal opportunity to unwind and revive, with the expert resort staff thinking of all those little details that will make your time at the gym worth the effort at the end of the day.

So whether you need the impetus to keep up with the hard work when you’re home again, a pro to teach you the skills to excel at your chosen sport, or you just love working up a sweat in glorious locations, explore our fabulous fitness retreats further.

Until the fountain of youth is discovered, many of us will continue to search for those magical treatments that will disguise our real age! Sometimes, as we all know, the mantra of ‘healthy eating, enough sleep, drinking water and taking exercise’ just aren’t enough and so a little helping hand is needed along the way.

If you want to come home from your holiday looking and feeling ten years younger, ITC Luxury Travel has an array of destinations which can offer treatments to do just that. So, if you’re after a gentle approach to ageing with detox and massage or aesthetic treatments like fillers and peels, explore the options at our healthy ageing resorts.

The Collagen Facial at Hampshire’s Chewton Glen will rejuvenate tired looking skin, while the Radio Frequency Anti-Ageing Face Lift Treatment at Longevity Wellness Spa uses heat to increase collagen production.

As with all of our health and wellbeing escapes there is a very holistic approach to ageing – aiding treatment through elements including diet, re-hydration, exercise and creating a stress-free environment from which you’ll leave feeling well rested.

Of course, a holiday in general can also do wonders for how you look and feel, which is why you’ll discover our suggested hotels in some truly luxurious resorts, both close to home and further afield. And remember, you’re only as old as you feel: so if you feel rested, rejuvenated and relaxed you’ll take years off your appearance!

A medical spa is a hybrid of a private medical clinic and a luxury spa, with a focus on aesthetic improvement and wellness. A holiday to one of these destinations can be the perfect starting point of a healthier new you and is well worth considering if you feel your health is in need of a boost, perhaps you’ve neglected it for too long and you need time out and some support to remedy it. Alternatively you may have seen the fantastic results from a medical spa before and are keen to learn more about new destinations around the world.

Our spas are usually overseen by an on-site medical doctor, as well as qualified medical professionals, so you can rest assured you’re in safe hands. Chiva-Som in Thailand has specialist consultants on hand to offer their expertise, as well as renowned dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons, while at Switzerland’s Grand Resort Bad Ragaz there is a Medical Health Centre specialising in sport, mental health, rheumatology, weight and nutrition and aesthetic treatments. For a truly holistic approach to your health and wellbeing, take a look at the ever-popular SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain – which has been named ‘Best Medical Spa’ by Condé Nast Traveller magazine.

The ITC Luxury Travel portfolio has a medical spa for your own individual needs, whatever they might be.

If you’re new to the Ayurvedic principle then it’s a concept well worth exploring on your health and wellbeing journey, or if you’re an old hand you’ll be able to enhance your knowledge at any of our retreats.

Ayurveda quite simply means ‘the knowledge for long life’ in Sanskrit – being a complete form of traditional medicine based on the notion that perfect health can only be achieved by treating the body, mind and spirit as one. The equilibrium is created by curing any imbalance in three ‘doshas’ that make up our constitution and the natural, holistic treatments used in the Ayurveda process are tailored to the individual. A holiday introducing you to Ayurveda should give you the foundations to go forward when you return home and use your ‘knowledge’ in everyday life.

Our Indian resort Neeleshwar is well-known for its Ayurvedic roots. The resort uses the practice in the traditional way, using natural, organic products and offering 20 different treatments. Also in India is eco-friendly hideaway SwaSwara Karnataka, where even the dining at the Cocum restaurant adheres to the principles of Ayurveda. Or for a truly exotic experience, the COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali has its own resident Ayurvedic doctors who introduce guests to the system with an Ayurvedic Consultation. Ananda in the Himalayas is ideal for those who are looking to use the Ayurvedic principles they adhere to every day in a holiday environment in a stunning setting.

A super-popular break, particularly at the start of the year, is one with a detox element at its heart.

If a detox is part of your annual or seasonal health routine you’ll certainly be inspired by our choices which offer some exciting new treatments and packages.

In a nutshell a detox holiday will ensure many of the toxins, that can build up in your body from the foods you consume, the products you use and air pollution,  are removed from your body leaving you cleaner and feeling lighter and generally more well.  On a detox holiday you’ll discover the secret to living well to help your body combat these toxins and many of our destinations have their own unique detox packages.

Take, for example, Turkey’s Kempinski Barbaros Bay, which has a Purification Program that includes elements such as a Cleansing Algae Body Wrap, Reiki and a hammam with Sea Salt & Olive Oil Scrub. Or how about the Comprehensive Detox & Rejuvenation Program at Thailand’s Kamalya? An intensive programme recommended for experienced detoxer’s rather than first-timers. Or for an array of detox options, head to ‘detox specialists’ Absolute Sanctuary in Thailand whose programmes include colonics.

A detoxing holiday is a superb way to get your health and wellbeing back on track and provide you with long-term ways of eliminating toxins in your life on a regularly basis, or as a broader healthy lifestyle choice.

The fuel we put into our bodies is vital for our overall health. Those who know how important diet is to their personal wellbeing will thoroughly enjoy any of our nutrition-conscious escapes which can teach new skills.

A holiday concentrating on diet is an ideal time to assess how you’re eating, any changes you need to make and any bad habits you need to get out of. Education is the key to improving your eating habits and our selection of hotels can provide you with just that.

Your time away may also be the ideal opportunity to kick-start a programme of weight management, with many spas and hotels suggesting low-calorie meal ideas and recipes to take home with you afterwards.

Some of our luxury resorts are so aux fait with dietary necessities that they’ve created their own healthy eating plans, with the SHA Wellness Clinic actually being founded on nutritional principles. The clinic was started due to the personal experience of its owner, who suffered serious digestive trouble and recovered through a macrobiotic diet and natural therapies. Food at SHA is therefore totally macrobiotic – using seasonal and unaltered produce such as cereals, oats and soy foods.

The ParkHotel Igls takes a different approach; using a catering method that is designed for your own individual needs. The Modern Mayr Cuisine philosophy is a merging of natural eating enjoyment and culinary common sense and during your entry examination to ParkHotel the nutritional level for your therapy will be discussed and determined with your doctor.

Jet off on a break to truly soothe your soul and you’ll be left with the skills to manage your day-to-day stresses on your return home too.

The ITC Luxury Travel portfolio has a wealth of destinations to do just that, but below you’ll discover a few of our favourites that specialise in de-stressing guests in a calming, tranquil atmosphere…with scope for some much-needed pampering too.

For ultimate revitalisation try the unique Arizonan spa Mii Amo, which has a seven-night De-Stress Mind, Body & Spirit package, created to “restore your inner balance” with a combination of services and treatments.

If stress management is part of your wider lifestyle, why not look at the few destinations we offer closer to home? At Grayshott Spa in Surrey take advantage of the de-stress packages which include fabulous treatments like the Blissful Slumber Massage – a soporific full body massage which encourages the body to restore its natural sleep patterns and therefore ideal for those suffering with insomnia, jetlag or stress.

Of course we recognise that a little holiday pampering may be on your wish-list too, so exploring the spas and beauty treatments available at a many of our destinations might be your first step towards some luxury holiday indulgence, just for you.
