Wellness – Achieving a Healthy Body and Mind

Villa Mandarinas Yoga Wellness Retreat

It is not simply about being in good physical condition, but also about mental fitness and social ease where you can connect with others, and yourself with confidence; holistic well-being that affects every part of your mind, body, and beyond. Wellness is not static and involves active and dynamic awareness and action that relates to personal growth and development as a balanced person. In other words, wellness is about inner contentment and feeling happy with who you are, what you are about, and where you are heading. The right setting and vacation villa can inspire positive change and give you space and environment to recalibrate on a deeper level.

Wellness is individual and personal and this needs to be reflected in where you stay on a holiday away. This means finding a unique villa stay that is private and perfectly fits your needs. To do this you need to consider several different elements.

Villa Amenities: There is something innately pleasurable and intimately nurturing about taking a dip in your own infinity pool, especially with views out over the blue sea across to the horizon. Some villas boast their own spa too with therapists offering holistic therapy from massage to facials so you can relax on a whole other level. Meanwhile, a fully equipped gym provides that much-needed balance to days of lounging by the pool, injecting the body with some adrenalin and keeping you fit so that lethargy does not kick in. An in-villa cinema and an entertainment room can also encourage you to take it easy.

Mindful Lifestyle: It seems to be a default setting that we spend a lot of our lives thinking about the past as well as deliberating on the future, with not enough time focused on the here and now. A truly luxurious vacation villa is one that brings you back to the present time by creating a vacation lifestyle that consists of special moments in which you are fully engaged. You may wake to a glorious sunrise or marvel at a stunning sunset over the western shores of an idyllic coastal landscape. A spectacular vista, alfresco lounging, and dining, as well as your own private chef and concierge, enable you to really let go and live in the ‘now’ with a villa space that extends outdoors and a vacation lifestyle that instills a feeling of flowing energy.

Meditative Settings: From beachfront to clifftop with views out over an expanse of ocean, and jungle surroundings; the location, villa grounds, and views are all-important to wellness. The perfect vista inspires peaceful contemplation and can be as refreshing as meditating as you let busy thoughts and anxieties dissolve. Part of this is feeling that you are in your own private hideaway villa where you have enough time and space to be yourself. Luxury affords spacious privacy.

Breathtaking Villas: Whilst a villa may seem like a bricks-and-mortar property, it really is not that simple. Luxury villas take on a life of their own with the architecture, design, and décor plus outdoor spaces and layout really defining the atmosphere and ambiance. An outstanding villa may look breathtaking but more than this, it is the feeling of freedom, space, and the possibility that it promises that makes all the difference.

Activities: Wellness comes from learning how to unwind and from being surrounded by wonderful villa features in an incredible setting. It is also vital that part of your wellness path is keeping your body and mind active with things to see and do. Trying new activities and learning new skills, and venturing just outside your comfort zone can prove to be a reviving tonic; one that not only keeps you fit but also has the potential to change your perspective and your attitudes to yourself, others, and life itself.

Feeling the Pleasure: The smallest attention to detail can provoke a sense of contentment, whether that be a gorgeously deep bathtub, a rain shower in the garden or a water feature. Luxury villas are beautifully designed and styled in a way that impacts how you feel. Contemporary minimalism with lots of natural light can be enlightening and refreshing whilst a modern villa with a traditional style can evoke a strong sense of authenticity. The best villas to inspire wellness are those that soothe the senses and create an oasis of gentle relaxation and comfort.
