Finding wellness onboard a superyacht

Superyachts, by definition, are an indulgence. They are opulent, decadent and a place you want for nothing. So, it may seem strange that time on a superyacht is the perfect time for a detox and wellness program but in fact, they are perfect for those wishing to kickstart a healthier lifestyle.

Firstly, there is an abundance of fresh air, crystal water and smoothing sand to wash away all that has gone before. Yachts are also very private. With no more than you and up to 11 of your nearest and dearest, you have all the peace and quiet you will need to focus on you.

Whilst the elements take care of the soul cleansing, the professional crew onboard take care of everything else. Most yachts have a fully trained masseuse or spa professional onboard yet you should make sure when arranging your charter or selecting the crew for your new yacht. The Chef onboard will pander to each requirement whether it is an entirely whole food menu or a juice detox, all you need do is ask.

For yogis and spa junkies, there are some breathtaking retreats which are easily accessible by yacht and in destinations which are equally inspiring for cruising. We suggest Pinetrees on Lord Howe Island (in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand), Injidup Spa situated in the Margaret River region of Western Australia or Saffire at Freycinet in Tasmania.

To start 2018 with the best of health and wellness, contact the team at Ocean Alliance for a bespoke yacht-based Wellness program.
