In a society which thrives on performance, competition and perfection, it comes to no surprise on why most of us are anxious pretty much all the time. So, it’s only natural that self-care has transformed from an occasional treat into more of a way of life, leading to the rise of wellness products and services. A prime example of this is the rise in ‘wellness travel’ among affluent travellers willing to splurge on activities and experiences that will add value to their already healthy lifestyle. If staying active sounds like your idea of a perfect vacation, these destinations below could be just the ticket to jump-start your wellness journey.

Under the hotel’s Wellness by The Legian programme, guests will have access to a wide range of spa treatments, nutrition, fitness and highly personalised programmes curated by Wellness Concierges and delivered by expert Wellness Practitioners.
For two days in September, The Sanchaya will be hosting the second annual Bintan Marathon with two routes that will take participants around the scenic Lagoi Bay that surrounds the luxury beachfront estate.
