Summer is coming. This means three gone too fast months full of parties, cookouts, poolside eats, and drinks on drinks on drinks! If you’re trying to make the most of your summer, but don’t want to lose your waistline in the process, these three luxury resorts offer great ways to stay fit on vacation so you can go ahead and have that burger and strawberry daiquiri guilt free!
If you’re looking for a quickie retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of Miami, then The Palm Hotel & Spa’s Sanctuary Yoga Retreat Package is for you. Treat yourself to a mindful oasis in The Palms’ exotic tropical gardens, only steps from the Atlantic Ocean, led by two of the most influential yogis in the Miami community: Vanessa Scotto and Amy Dannheim. With rates starting at just $212 a night, Sanctuary at The Palms will reawaken your soul with nourishing yoga sessions and guided earth meditations, followed by a healthy, farm-to-table lunch from Essensia Restaurant, and plenty of Zen relaxation at The Palms’ secluded pool and beach.
Trying to stay fit while on vacation is hard enough, but if you’ve got kids tagging along who refuse to eat anything but burgers and ice cream, the struggle gets real. Fortunately for you the 1,500 acre beachfront plantation paradise known the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Curaçao keeps guests active and healthy with farm-to-table menus and a fitness-friendly landscape. With their Active Luxury Package, days can include a meditation hike up the stunning Tafelberg mountain, creating your own body scrub made from ingredients straight out of Dinah Veeris’ garden (Curaçao’s local herb specialist), sunset paddleboarding through the Spanish Water Bay and dining on freshly caught Mahi at SHORE, the resort’s picturesque dining venue.
The best part, after the $188 a night starting price of course, is the fact that the package includes unlimited watersport rentals, unlimited open-play tennis court and bike rentals, enhanced WiFi and complimentary daily use of Camp Arawak Kid’s Club. Just what you need to distract the kiddies while you work on your Zenned out summer body.
If you’re looking to disconnect, relax, and truly reconnect with your body and nature, head to Casa Palopo and surround yourself with breathtaking sights of Lake Atitlan’s three volcanoes to recalibrate your zen. The Yogis in Atitlan package starts at $474 a night for a minimum of four nights, and includes an airport transfer to/from La Aurora International Airport, accommodations at the boutique hotel, daily breakfast, one spa treatment, and daily yoga sessions. Just what you need to keep your wellness on track…and mentally prepare for winter.
