Book, stay, enjoy. That's

Wellbeing is the resort buzzword du jour

A lot of people go on holiday to chill out by a swimming pool and drink a bucket-load of cocktails.

Others want to go climbing, walking or kayaking - action holidays are all the rage. 

I'm not sure how many folk go on vacation to get fit, or to detox, but wellbeing has clearly been identified by resort marketers as a valuable market segment. 

Every week my inbox is inundated with more emails about "wellbeing", "wellness" and "health" than you'd find Covidiots on the streets of Melbourne. 

And so, this morning, an email advising that Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas looks forward to welcoming back international travellers as the Indian Ocean island prepares for the full reopening of its borders on October 1 with one of the highest full vaccination rates in Africa.

They tell me: " An active wellbeing vacation awaits guests with the opportunity to commune with nature during a series of immersive and indigenous experiences to rejuvenate mind, body and soul." 

Fortunately I can also "delight in sumptuous dining and enjoy menus bursting with nutritious delicacies". 

There is, of course, "an active wellbeing program" - from which I might consider a massage. 

But if "holostic wellness" therapies ranging from yoga, meditation, tai chi and stretching to de-stress and unwind in pure natural surroundings amplified by nature are your thing then this looks a rather nice place to do them. And Anantara properties are always a delight. 

The luxury five-star resort will also soon unveil its two- and four-bedroom Anantara Pool Villas, which are set within tropical gardens in the serene surroundings of the south-east coast of Mauritius.

That sounds much more like me; kicking back in luxury with a cold one.
