10 Best Wellness Retreats of 2021


Besides memes and selfies, Instagram has travel photos in excess. It can be hard to pinpoint the best to keep track of, without over-following (one can only look at so many sunsets and ski lifts without all of it blurring together.) From a barefoot boutique Bahamian property to a monolithic diamond in the Utah desert, weโ€™ve selected our favorite luxury hotels and retreats with a wellness-focus to follow in the order of highest engagement rate to least. 

Rest and reset your mind and body at one of our favorite wellness retreats: 

Grand Resort Bad Ragaz

๐Ÿ“Bad Ragaz

๐Ÿ“ˆ 6.39% Engagement

This 18th-century palatial hotel overlooking the Tamina Gorge in Switzerland, is just 15 km from Pizol mountain. It is no wonder 6 of their top 10 posts this past year featured the geothermal pool… it alone is reason enough to visit.  



๐Ÿ“ˆ 3.59% Engagement

This hotel is made for Instagram and ultimate escapism in tandem. With sleek concrete lines and an extensive spaโ€”plus outdoor activityโ€”menu, itโ€™s both a must-see off-the-grid outpost and a place to recharge, together.

Escape into the Swedish woodlands at this remote, intriguing lodge.

Ocean View & the Other Side

๐Ÿ“Miami Beach

๐Ÿ“ˆ .91% Engagement

A hotel that feels like a home: Ocean View Club, in Harbour Island, The Bahamas, encourages bare feet at all times and a living-room vibe. Sip a Kalik beer from the โ€œhonorโ€ bar, and settle in. 

El Fenn

El Fenn is arguably the most artful hotel in Marrakech. Soak in the sumptuous designs and the rich, cozy color-palette of this ultra relaxing riad.

Cowley Manor


๐Ÿ“ˆ 1.99% Engagement

A 30-room spa hotel set in 55 acres of the ultra-lush Cotswolds region of the United Kingdom isโ€ฆ well, bloody heavenly. 

Hotel Talisa

The St. Regis Maldives

๐Ÿ“Vommuli Island

๐Ÿ“ˆ 1.36% Engagement

In the Maldives, you really feel removed from the chaotic pace of the rest of the world. Here, you can do aerial yoga, play tennis, and, even, enjoy a spa thatโ€™s shaped like an abstract crustacean. But the healthiest thing to do is to swim around the hotelโ€™s โ€œhouse reef,โ€ the corals at the edge of this tiny atoll.

The Upper House

๐Ÿ“Hong Kong

๐Ÿ“ˆ .76% Engagement

Hong Kong can be hot, humid, and crowded. Upper House is a minimal-chic, ultra-high end hotel to escape the fray (and itโ€™s a favorite with celebrities and fashion industry types).

Grupo Habita

๐Ÿ“Mexico City

๐Ÿ“ˆ .53% Engagement

Grupo Habita is a designed-focused hotel group out of Mexico City. They maintain one account between their properties. We recommend Escondido. Its got surf, sun, sand, and a fair amount of cleansing separation (it stands alone on a wild, wave-lashed beach).
