Wellness Travel: Leisure & Corporate

Health and overall well-being is the most important thing in life. It is essential that you take care of yourself. That’s why wellness travel is so important.

I always introduce wellness into my corporate clients’ lives because business travel is so stressful. Imagine being on the road, stuck at airports because of bad weather, delays or cancellations, sitting in coach class, because that may be all their company pays for. When my client says he must go to a business meeting in Los Angeles on Tuesday and come back on Friday, I plan the usual with the round-trip ticket, accommodations and ground transport, but I will also recommend, for example: "why not have your wife fly out there on Friday and extend your trip until Sunday and transform it into a 'bleisure' trip?"

Or I might I find out whether my client has any air miles or points and recommend they take a wellness trip to recharge, perhaps to Napa Valley. In this way, a simple business trip anywhere in the world can be turned into a mini dream vacation for my client and vastly improve their physical and mental well-being. 

My success in creating memorable wellness trips for my clients is due to my training to become a Certified Elite Wellness Travel Specialist, my own personal travels and my Tzell connections.

For example, on a recent trip between Indiana and New York with my son, we stopped and stayed at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Pennsylvania where we enjoyed the resort amenities, body treatments and cuisine, and were rejuvenated for the last leg of our trip. This is the way to turn ordinary travel into something special. Another extraordinary dream vacation I personally experienced was Body Holiday in St Lucia. It was the perfect blend Caribbean relaxation combined with great activities, amazing cuisine (including English tea service and specialty cocktails on the beach), spa options, hikes, spin classes, beach exercise and sailing.

Terranea Resort, an eco-luxury property in Rancho Palos Verdes, California is another great luxury resort with wellness and spa options, an adult pool, stand-up paddle boards and kayaks, spin and yoga classes right on a dramatic cliff by the Pacific Ocean with dolphins jumping in the water.

Another enriching aspect of travel is meeting people from all over the world and from all walks of life.
