Get a Taste of the Healthy Life on Hilton Sydney's Health Retreats
If you're looking for a vacation that's healthier than the average overindulgent getaway, here's a suggestion: the Hilton Health Retreat which they run four times a year at the Sydney Hilton. The next retreat is coming up soon, from June 12 to 14, so get packing for Oz fast and you'll come away feeling pretty good – or pretty exhausted.
The Hilton Health Retreat is a pretty full-on weekend, led by an expert nutritionist and a fitness pro. You have to undertake a fitness and nutrition assessment before you even get there, so those two experts can set about planning all the right activities for you.
It's not just that they take you aside for some personal fitness training, or get you up early for a yoga session – they also aim to teach you how to live a healthier lifestyle beyond the weekend retreat. Cooking classes and one-on-one nutrition advice are included, along with good-for-the-mind stuff like guided meditation practice.
But thankfully there is also some fun stuff. Your accommodation is in a Relaxation Suite and you can also use the hotel spa; and the included meals, while healthy, do sound pretty delicious. Bookings for the June 12 to 14 retreat go for A$1,900 ($1,500) per person, or A$2,900 ($2,300) per person if you're sharing a room.
