Most wellness resorts are designed so that visitors can take time for themselves, explore nature and enjoy a break from everyday life. Spas with treatments have also been built on the resort’s grounds, allowing visitors to restore their strength and find balance in their minds.

Originating in India, yoga poses emphasize sitting meditation and deep breathing. In the West, Yoga Retreats often resemble staying in luxury resorts. Although this trend is quite new in Vietnam, it is usually seen as a premium service package for tourists in five-star resorts.

Notably, the two cities of Hanoi and Hoi An have been highly rated by the travel websites of Wego and TrustYou with factors corresponding to visitors’ desire for wellness tourism, and come in the top 10 best tourist cities for wellness services in Asia.

Pham Khac Loc, an English instructor and yoga instructor, said that in addition to swimming, fishing or rowing, Yoga Retreat is currently a new and interesting experience for tourists who come to resorts in coastal glamping areas, for example on Binh Lap Island ( Cam Ranh town, Khanh Hoa).

Practicing yoga in the middle of the sea and islands creates a sense of closeness to nature, relaxes the mind and brings positive energy to life.

Despite many favorable factors, Vietnam’s tourism industry must be long-term oriented and the accommodation unit must also know how to operate this form of tourism effectively, preserving the landscape and raising awareness of environmental protection for tourists and local people, Mr. Loc stressed.
