Home to over 6% of the world’s plant and wildlife, Costa Rica’s a truly amazing destination when you want to get back to nature. Of course, exploring everything this diverse and luscious country has to offer, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little luxury at the same time! Meditate in your very own yoga cabina, located next to the magnificent Cabo Blanca Nature Reserve, or try your hand at Tai Chi in Santa Theresa. Alajuela’s a particularly popular spot for spa retreats, with many of the properties in the area boasting pure, spring water fed pools: after enjoying a dip, why not set out to pick some tropical fresh fruit and vegetables for supper?

 Spa holidays in Ghana Spa holidays in Ghana

Accra, in Ghana, is one of the world’s best spots for luxurious spa retreats, and at only six hour’s away, it’s certainly worth considering. Its stunning beaches are not unlike those of the Caribbean, and while it might not boast the Big 5 of the Kenyan plains, its National Parks are lush, green and overflowing with plant and wild life. Of course, the best thing about Ghana is the luxury accommodation, some of which is found on privately owned islands like Parrot Cay. Located on powder-white sands, replete with jacuzzi, personal chef, fitness centre, spa and yoga instructor, there’s nothing more luxurious than a spa break in Ghana.
