The Best Autumn Wellness Escapes for 2021
- 21 September 2021 21 September 2021
Autumn wellness holidays have now got the green light from the UK Government thanks to their latest travel update on Friday 17th September which simplifies travel for the doubly vaccinated. The new rules coming into place on October 4th sees the combination of the green and amber lists and the waiving of pre-departure PCR tests for those that have had two shots of the COVID-19 vaccines – doubly-vaccinated travellers will now only be required to take a lateral flow test before returning to the UK. This welcome news gives travellers the confidence to book a much-needed wellness retreat to replenish and refresh after the last 18 months of complicated and expensive barriers to travel.
With this in mind, we’ve rounded up our best autumn wellness escapes for 2021 to catch some late sun and get back to doing what you love most – travelling to better your mental, physical and spiritual health! From restorative spa holidays to fitness and detox retreats, each retreat can be completely tailored to your needs whether you want to lose weight, live a healthier, more active lifestyle, or alleviate yourself of the effects of overindulgence over the lockdowns.
