Zanzibar’s Wellness Retreat Will Bring Out Your Wild Side

When people think of Zanzibar they think white sand beaches, turquoise oceans, cocktails,¬†and tanning. While the first two are definitely accurate, the latter are missing at Zanzibar’s innovative wellness retreat.

Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa teamed up with Wildfitness, an organization encouraging a healthy getaway with strenuous exercise together with holistic healing and healthy nutrition, to give guests an alternative experience. If you’re one of those people who wants to sit back and relax on vacation, this resort is certainly not for you, but if you’re looking for something challenging and adventurous, then look no further.

The Wildfitness organization explains they encompass “a philosophy that is rooted in evolutionary science and research. Backed by doctors, scientists and university lecturers, we focus on three elements: wild moving, wild eating and wild living.” For seven days, guests will feel energized, stronger than ever, and leaner than before through freshly prepared meals from expert chefs followed by crashing in the lap of luxury in a five-star hotel at the end of the day.

Rather than seeing the experience as a detox or weight loss program, it is intended to be a chance for people to press the reset button, paying close attention to your body and giving it the nutrients and care it requires. Through interacting with nature and removing yourself from the restraints and stress of everyday life, guests will achieve a harmonious balance of mind, body, and spirit. The resort is a sight to see and is situated on the east coast of Zanzibar, spread across the scenic Paje Beach. The villas blend beautifully with the natural surroundings, giving guests the impression that they are at one with nature and given the utmost of privacy.

Guests can expect to be served meals with organic, locally sourced fish, fruits, and vegetables before unwinding in a tropical paradise. With your days being filled with strenuous exercise, the retreat is determined to have guests recover properly through giving complimentary deep tissue massages and a wide range of treatments made from locally sourced products, healing your body and mind.

Although drinks might not be a part of the program, if you’re craving the bubbly, you can sneak off to the resorts rooftop champagne bar for a little nightcap!
