A wellness holiday can be a great opportunity to unplug, reset and focus solely on yourself. Solo travel is on the rise and a wellness retreat will allow you to do the things you enjoy without having to worry about anybody else. Go on a journey of self-discovery, meet like-minded people with similar interests or even learn a new skill.
