What to Consider When Choosing the Right Retreat
Are you sitting in the office fantasizing about your next wellness holiday, but you can’t decide which one is best for you? There are many retreat experiences available, ranging from those that enhance mental and physical health to those that help you acquire or better a skill. Regardless of your goals, we’ve created a list of considerations we recommend before you make your next retreat enquiry.
1. Retreat Type
The first thing you need to consider is the purpose of your retreat: are you trying to chill out and relax? Or, perhaps, you want to improve your physical health and take part in sports activities?
If you are looking for a relaxing experience, retreats with spa facilities are your best bet. At the Good Index, we feature relaxing retreats with award-winning spa facilities that include infrared saunas, steam rooms, and beautiful outdoor pools.
On the other hand, if you are an active person seeking a little push to reach your fitness goals, the Good Index has several getaway categories to explore. Regardless of your needs, you’re sure to find something that appeals to you:
2. Retreat Location
Where would you like to go?
Unsurprisingly, Australia has a variety of hidden gems where you can take a relaxing break. We understand that location is an essential factor when booking a retreat, so on the Good Index, we’ve conveniently sorted the retreats into different categories, including location. Australia is a big country, so whether you want to explore a new region or stay close to home, we have hundreds of options for you. Start your quick search by location now:
Would you like to go alone, with friends, or with your partner?
Attending a retreat alone allows you to concentrate on yourself and reconnect with the things you find important. Experiencing a solo retreat is also an opportunity to meet others, make new friends, and step outside of your comfort zone.
Would you prefer to use this time away from devices and distractions to connect and spend time with your loved ones? Whether it is your partner, a family member, or your best friend, getaways will bring you closer together. The right retreat will be a remarkable opportunity that you will both remember for the rest of your lives. While on a retreat you don’t have to think about a thing, which means more time to concentrate on, and be with, each other.
There is a retreat for every budget.
You can easily set your budget limit when finding a retreat on the Good Index. Finding the right getaway does not have to be expensive; this is one of the most common misconceptions about retreats. Numala offers a full day yoga retreat, including fundamental techniques and how to tap into your Prana for $140. They also offer a half day retreat for only $90.
Once you’ve determined your budget, you can search for your next retreat using our pricing filter, which narrows down the retreats to ones that are suitable for you.
The Good Index is Australia’s leading retreat guide, created to inspire you to take a break with health as your number one priority. One platform with hundreds of wellness destinations to discover. Reconnect with what’s important to you and experience the benefits of retreats first hand.
