Self-Care Vacations Are More Than Luxury Resorts, They Are Conscious Travel

Luxury Travel Takes On Mindfulness and Well-being

self care vacations

2019 is a year of searching for more. We witness Instagram posts, and Pinterest quotes portraying the journey of uplifting and encouraging us to be the best version of ourselves. Valuing positive environments, we seek out the things and people who provoke feelings of good all around us. This journey of discovery is also one of the most significant travel trends we will see for the next five years. 

Travelers are desiring experience. More than experience, they are yearning for connection to something that enlivens within themselves and inspires, humbles, engages, or creates a sense of wonder. Desiring more than the average all-inclusive beach vacation, today’s traveler is searching for connection, wellness, and gratitude.

We all want to feel good. We want to feel as though we have done something or experienced something that has added something to our lives. Many are searching for that encounter in life that can never be repeated and that fulfills something inside that connects us to our passions. Life is a mystery to us all, and more and more we are searching for meaning. 

Taking priority in our own lives, we now understand happiness and health starts with us as individuals. The past five to ten years have seen more people jumping on board for 5k runs, especially with the help of local fundraisers and apps such as the ‘Couch to 5k”. Similar to this, the shift is moving to overall wellness. Not just a running to get in shape or support someone trend. There is an empowerment movement to feel and be our best at every level, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

Former Monk, Jay Shetty, expressed,

“Self-care isn’t just holidays and massages. It’s working on your habits, mindset and healing your past. It’s removing toxic thoughts, people, and places in your life. It’s living intentionally, purposefully and consciously.”

And he could not be more spot on. 

This vibe is inspiring travelers to search outside-the-box in terms of how time is spent off work. Many travelers are now seeking wellness resorts or retreats that provide experience in culture, health, healing, and mindfulness. It is more than rejuvenation, wellness as the new luxury travel embraces all the senses. Where can you find time to connect, honor yourself, and experience soul-changing karma?  

This one-of-a-kind resort is setting the standard for doing the work of going within and truly taking time for personal wellness that can heal, change thought patterns, and inspire one to live the best version of themselves.

Dwarika’s Resort, Dhulikhel, Kavre, Nepal
This mindful resort pays homage to ancient roots of the Himalayan Mountains and over delivers in personal wellness by focusing on the ancient wisdom of balancing and harmonizing body, mind, spirit, and environment. A sanctuary for all senses, Dwarika’s hugs the soul and nurtures thoughts and wellbeing.

Unlike any other, this magical mountain experience is more than yoga, spa, organic meals, creative classes in art and culinary, or mediation. It delivers in healing and enlightenment. Chakra chamber meditations, Auryvedic doctor consultations to discover body type and proper diet, connection to nature, and allowing the most perfect sunrises to greet each day, it is the escape you have dreamed of to disconnect to reconnect to the melody of your being,  aligning values and wisdom with gratitude and love.

It is a conscious resort on all levels. Inspired by a blend of Vedic Philosophy and Buddhist Medicine, the Resort focuses on the complete wellbeing of an individual, drawing on the knowledge and holistic lifestyle of the Himalayan region.
