Top 10 Detox Retreats for 2015



After my recent blog on my Bali detox experience, I’ve had a lot of interest seeking advice for the best detox retreats. My friends at Health and Fitness Travel, the leading specialists in wellness holidays worldwide, round up 10 of the best detox retreats for 2015 below. From the foothills of India’s Himalayas to the rolling Tuscan hills of Italy, you can look at options to swap the toxin-inducing stress levels, lethargy and poor diets of daily life for a healthy detox holiday. I’d recommend seeking places with expert guidance, healthy nutrition and cleansing spa treatments; to enhance your well-being for benefits from weight loss to clearer skin and improved mental clarity (all which I experienced as part of my recent detox experience).

Further to the below top-ten, if you’re seeking a local detox experience, I’d recommend checking out Byron Bay Detox Retreats for a heap of solid options.
