You’d love: Aro Hā Wellness Retreat
Where: Glenorchy, New Zealand
Nestled in the idyllic hillside of New Zealand’s Southern Alps on the shores of Lake Wakatipu is an advanced, spirit-lifting centre that focuses on both physical and mental health.

‘STILL IN BED’
You’d love: Euphoria Retreat
Where: Mystras, Greece
Opening this month within the Unesco World Heritage Site of Mystras and at the foothills of Mount Taygetos of Peloponnese is this holistic well-being destination that aims to bring guests through a journey of reinvention. While we love how its therapy programmes revolve around the five elements of nature (earth, fire, water, wood and metal), we’re also intrigued by its state-of-the-art facilities like the sphere pool (for a relaxing bathing experience), Byzantine Hammam (for body cleansing and stress relief), Tepidarium (to restore the immune system) and herbal steam baths.
