working from holiday


Whilst travel as we know it has changed drastically over the last year, we’ve seen a growing demand from business travellers who are looking to work from holiday and book long stay wellness workcations ranging from 30 to 60 nights at a time.


As a result of the pandemic, travellers will undoubtedly take fewer trips but will extend their durations in order to reap the benefits for both business and wellness purposes. Destinations and resorts are responding accordingly with wellness holidays that can be tailored around work schedules. This is a trend that is here for the foreseeable as the travel industry seeks to recover following the second year of restrictions.

With this in mind, we’ve put together 5 of the best wellness retreats to work from holiday on that will allow business travellers to incorporate wellness into their work from holiday routines, refreshing both mind and body with a much-needed change of scenery:
