Weight loss holidays

Cathy's verdict
If a healthier body is the souvenir you’d like from your travels, it needn’t be gruelling. Holistic retreats in Morocco and France from the healthy holiday company promise gourmet food, yoga and fitness, while weight-loss breaks are offered in Tuscany and Spain. Almost all your fellow guests will be travelling alone, and there’s a lovely friendly vibe.

the healthy holiday company says

Whether you want to simply shed a few pounds or kick-start a healthier lifestyle, we offer a range of weight loss holidays. In the company of a small group of like-minded people, almost all of them travelling solo too, they are all about “me time” in luxurious surroundings, supported by experts not only in nutrition but also in fitness and mental wellbeing.

Our six-night weight-loss programme at Shanti Som, in Andalucia, is the most popular – and offers the best value. You can expect to lose up to seven pounds with a combination of delicious weight-loss cuisine, exercise and yoga classes.

Another favourite is the Sha Wellness Clinic weight-loss week on the Costa Blanca. Similarly, there are three- and six-night weight-loss holidays at the ultra-luxurious Castel Monastero in Tuscany. See all our weight loss holiday ideas.

Our week-long in:spa retreats in Morocco, France and Spain take a more holistic approach to weight management with yoga classes, massage therapies, gourmet cuisine (with the emphasis on healthy eating) and fitness training. Staying in your own luxurious en suite room (with the option to twin share), there are no more than 20 in the group with a combination of one-on-one attention and group activities.
