“Your leisure time is your only non-renewable asset” is a quote often heard from Virtuoso’s CEO Matthew Upchurch. We would add to that, "your health, is your most valuable asset”.
Together the expenditure of leisure time, and the decision to ensure that your positive health and wellness choices travel with you, are influencing the way our guests make their travel choices. It is also broadening the concept of what is wellness travel. From the pure concepts of wellness via dedicated, beautiful spas and retreats, to the powerful reconnection with nature to find knowledge, inner peace and mindfulness, to having access to yoga and other therapy professionals wherever you are, to food, beverage, pillow, music and a myriad of other choices. It is also about having positive impact on where you are as well as how you are.
Taking time out to relax is acknowledged and revered as one of life's true luxuries and essential contributor to wellness and wellbeing. For many, wellness is something that is an expected part of travel, not the journey itself. And can be enjoyed at many of Australia’s luxury lodges.
