Wellness travel is booming. Travelers are taking themselves to resorts that help them slow down, practice mindfulness, and reconnect with their bodies. From spa treatments to yoga and meditation to nourishing meal plans, the focus is on holistic well-being and healing that may be vital after the collective trauma the world has faced. I have been to multiple wellness resorts during the pandemic and these experiences have been incomparable to other travel experiences. For those who want to get introduced to this lifestyle softly, there is a retreat in Mexico’s Riviera Maya that can give you a taste without any extremes.
The oceanfront resort of Palmaïa, The House of AïA in Playa del Carmen is a five-star property that focuses on Progressive Wellness. With 234 suites designed without animal products, there are different spaces for guests: family suites, meditation suites, oceanfront suites, and swim-out suites. The resort offers plant-based cuisine, spa treatments in a jungle spa, mind classes (art class, meditation, gravity control, deep healing mantras), movement classes (pranayama, yoga, dance for peace, and harmonic singing), and ceremonies such as sacred women’s circle, gong bath, and forgiveness ceremony.
On Travelzoo, Palmaïa is offering $1,800 off on stays. Two guests can stay in the Ocean Front King or Queen Suite or Ocean Front Family King Suite for $2,999 for three nights and $4,999 for five nights from November 17-February 28.

If you can take some more time off, explore the coastal town of Playa del Carmen. The destination has made a name for itself for its glistening beaches. You can attend pulsating parties, dive for colorful reefs, go sailing in the Caribbean, and get acquainted with the buzzing Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue) that runs parallel to the beach.
Although it’s a year-round destination, November is a great time to visit Playa del Carmen. You can book this deal now and choose your dates when you’re ready. A 14-day refund policy by Travelzoo ensures that you can cancel this flexible deal if you change your mind or if you don’t find suitable dates.

Note: The U.S. Department of State has updated its travel advisory for some parts of Mexico. There is an increased risk of kidnapping and crime. It advises travelers to exercise increased caution when traveling to Quintana Roo state. Read details on the state department website.
