2019 is the year we truly start to take care of ourselves on our time off, which is why creative travel and wellness holidays are the thing of ‘now’ in the travel industry.
Once upon a time, a vacation meant drinks, lots of food, tours and shopping. But many of us are tiring a little, even on our trips.
Recently, there’s been a shift in the reasons many of us choose to get away – we want to switch off from the pressures of modern-day life.
Why creative travel and wellness holidays?
The new kind of break, the one that will continue to rise as one of the most sought-after in 2019, is the ‘wellness escape’. It’s an enriching life experience – a creative travel or wellness holiday – where we return home feeling great about ourselves.
Wellness has become a booming industry, evidenced by the fact Lonely Planet has just published a gorgeous hard-cover guide on the topic, Wellness Escapes.

The publication presents an inspiring breadth of offerings around the globe.
- Yoga retreats (we’ve published a story about a retreat in Turkey if you’re interested)
- Fitness and wellness festivals around the world
- Creativity workshops and personal growth opportunities
- Health spas and nutrition getaways
Akin to other collectable Lonely Planet guides like Culture Trails and Everyday Adventures (released in 2018, be inspired by those titles here), Wellness Escapes is an item any wanderluster will want on the coffee table.
Wellness Escapes features a worldwide guide on the best, coolest and most energising creative travel, wellness holidays, meditation centres, health spas, fitness events (including LoveFit in the UK) and much more.
It’s a whole lot of love in one delicious book. Be inspired, get creative and healthy now.
Inspired creative travel trends and holiday tips
For more on wellness trends and creative travel of 2019, have a read of my feature on the topic published in the January issue of Get it Magazine.
Hi Sarah, It’s a great news for the travelers who are interested to maintain wellness of health while on travel. Generally people are intended to enjoy local cuisine on travel what sometimes causes trouble for the people. I believe this new magazine will help a lot to maintain the help.
Great! Thanks for your comment Shamim :)
wellness travel are becoming more popular as the years go a while back not so many people knew what wellness travel was all about.
I know, it’s a lovely development! Thanks for your comment :-)
I love this information that you provided. Wellness travel is always my agenda ever since when I was still single. Right now I have children to take care of and they are very young. Reading this article would want me to get into wellness travelling again but i need to schedule it on my own time. Thank for reviving my interest again into wellness travelling.

Great thanks Sagar, glad to help :)
Hi Sarah, thanks for sharing this info. I’d love it if this will be the norm moving forward. Acupuncture and cupping in China, Thai herbal massage in Thailand – yes please!
Agreed Rick :) Thanks for your comment!
I love this concept. It can be so easy to walk around in a tired, dejected stupor and be completely oblivious to your own plight. I hope everyone gets on the wellness holiday train! There’ll be more smiles, more happiness and more productivity!

We agree… hopefully we can get out and about and enjoy these trips again soon, Iris :)
Usually we are headed to beautiful destinations to feel better, absorb different flavors of a beautiful place. But yes keeping the wellness part in the radar could help us rejuvenate better. Join meditation classes, going to spa, doing Yoga could lead us towards a much better frame of mind.
