Luxury Wellness & Health Spa Resorts for Weight Loss and Relaxation

What is a Luxury Wellness Spa Resort?

A wellness spa resort is typically a hotel with fitness options, such as yoga, sports, golf, personal training, or other exercise activities. Luxury wellness spa resorts are typically all-inclusive, meaning that nightly accommodations, meals, and health and fitness are all included in the price. Spa treatments may also be included, but that will vary from resort to resort. Wellness and health spa resorts are not typically designed around weight loss exclusively. Most fitness activities are typically optional parts of the program, and meals are not calorie limited. Frequently, wine and alcohol is served at wellness spa resorts, which adds to the “luxury” aspect, but does not promote active weight loss. Some wellness spas are housed at standard hotels; guests may interact and eat with visitors not part of the program. Other wellness spas may be at private resorts, specifically for program guests. Review the descriptions of each luxury health spa resort to find out the details of listings you may be interested in. Guests looking to seriously lose weight when they travel may look to other resort categories. Fitness Resorts are active weight loss programs with structured exercise and nutrition. Diet Retreats are calorie-limited excursions sometimes involving juicing or fasting. And Health Resorts are more limited-exercise weight loss options.

A wellness and health spa resort might be right if you are looking for a healthy dose of relaxation, but less concerned about weight loss. Because most wellness spa resorts do not have limited-calorie menus, guests will have to self-regulate to meet their health goals. Additionally, most fitness activities at these resorts are optional, so guests can push themselves as much or as little as they wish. Guests looking for an intense weight loss vacation may wish to explore the weight loss resorts or diet retreats on FitStays.com.
