While it’s true that you’ll get a life-changing experience with any kind of holiday you choose, a luxury yoga retreat in Europe offers some extra perks that you probably won’t find in other types of vacations.
First of all, it will often take place in a five-star hotel, a fancy resort, a chic villa or a stylish boutique hotel where you’ll have access to indulgent ways to pamper yourself. It could be with a spa, sauna, special massage or a delicious gourmet meal with organic products.
Some resorts could also offer jacuzzi, tennis courts, swimming pools, a golf course. That said, ‘luxury’ can entail many other alternatives to add value to your vacation that extends beyond facilities & amenities. One thing’s for sure though, it makes for an unforgettable occasion.
