The company, which operates the in:spa retreats, fitscape fitness holidays and destination yoga brands, has seen a huge increase in interest for their 2012 holidays and bookings are currently up 30% on 2011 levels. A number of additional departures are being added in response to this demand.
In addition to the fixed group departures a new option has just been launched – in:spa bespoke – which takes the tried and tested in:spa retreat formula (delicious healthy eating, regular massages, nutritional consultations, personal fitness training sessions, relaxing yoga, hiking, running and circuit training) and makes it available to family and friends wishing to ‘healthy holiday’ together in small groups for dates and locations to suit their individual needs.
“The in:spa bespoke holiday will work best for groups in a private villa or small hotel they can take over completely. We move in with our experienced team of chef, yoga instructor, personal fitness trainer(s) and nutritionist and put together an experience completely tailored to the group but focusing on the in:spa principles which we know work well,” commented Kathryn Brown, founder and director of The Healthy Holiday Company.
“Each holiday can be tailor made to group requirements and interests. For example we have just organised a holiday for a fitness mad family who want to try yoga and get into healthy eating as well as have swim coaching for the kids each day. So we have booked them a luxury villa together with a massage therapist, an in:spa chef and yoga teacher for a week in Ibiza, as well as daily sessions with a swimming instructor.”
Example prices - a week’s retreat for a group of six staying in a luxury villa in Ibiza starts from £1950 per person during Summer 2012 and includes the full health and fitness programme, all meals, massages and personal nutrition and fitness consultations. Duration of the holidays are totally flexible ranging from 4, 7, 10 or 14 nights.
Other examples of options include:
Biking and Hiking in Morocco - Gather together some mates and create your very own biking and hiking holiday adventure in the Atlas Mountains. in:spa bespoke can organise daily guides and bike hire to suit the experience levels of the group. Accommodation will be in a luxury villa on the outskirts of Marrakech with a healthy eating plan from your personal chef and daily massages.
Tennis and Yoga in Mallorca – Two families come together to stay in villa in the beautiful hilltop village of Deia equipped with tennis court and swimming pool. Take daily yoga and tennis lessons, and combine with time to chill out by the pool and soak up the sunshine.

In addition, if guests already have their holiday residence booked they can call upon in:spa to send in a team of therapists, chef and trainers to create the retreat at their chosen destination.
“We take care of all the organisation for you – from flights, to transfers and villa bookings. More and more people are looking to use their holiday as time to kick start a healthier lifestyle and can combine relaxing around the pool with some great work outs and delicious healthy eating. This way they can return home with lots of tips and advice about how they can integrate better habits into their everyday routines,” added Brown.
Since 2003, in:spa has been offering healthy holiday experiences that are totally unique, and host retreats at a selection of exclusive handpicked venues in some of the world’s most inspiring locations. An in:spa holiday transforms physical and mental wellbeing – the perfect combination of hiking, personal training, yoga, massage, a cleansing diet and nutritional advice in beautiful, comfortable, harmonious surroundings.
The expert team of in:spa massage therapists, nutritionists, chefs, yoga teachers and personal trainers ensure maximum benefits for every guest, such as weight-loss, improved fitness, greater flexibility, stress relief and a heightened sense of wellbeing.
A place on scheduled group retreat costs from £2195 per person for a week full board with all activities including daily physical activities, a one on one nutrition consultation, a one on one personal training session, daily yoga classes and two restorative massages. The next available group options depart on 14th March to Marrakech or the 4th April to Southern Spain.
