Travelers visit wellness resorts for a number of reasons, including spiritual awakening, unplugging from the modern world, weight loss, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and simply being with nature. Wellness retreats vary depending on the type of experience you are seeking, but most tend to be located in a beautiful setting that is isolated from day-to-day distractions. Yoga, meditation, hiking, and other activities are often bundled into the hotel price, and accommodations range from basic, unexciting rooms to luxurious bungalows. Here are the best wellness hotels and resorts in the United States and Central America.
