Whether it’s mindfulness retreats, transformative travel or active holidays, wellness tourism is experiencing 6.5 per cent annual growth globally and 2019 will see more travellers looking to refresh and revitalise in a healthy way.

Similarly, as the importance of mental health grows, holidays to combat stress are becoming more prevalent.

The Hawaiian Islands are destinations abundant in experiences for wellness travellers. From the moment you step off the plane, you are met with the spirit of Aloha, encouraging altruism, kindness and mindfulness.

With everything from spa retreats to reconnecting with nature and active adventures, the Hawaiian Islands have a diverse range of choices for travellers looking to refresh both mind and body.

Each of the Hawaiian Islands of Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the Island of Hawaii offer wellness experiences for all kinds of travellers.
