One of the best ways to renew and recharge your body and spirit is by going on a retreat in nature, and a beachside destination is a perfect place to have a one of a kind healing experience. Check out these amazing waterside retreats for your next holiday.

1 The Oberoi Beach Resort, Mauritius

Before going to any waterside holiday destination, it’s important to be fully prepared to make the most of your stay and avoid any untoward incidents. Make sure to pack the right clothes and gear for every activity, as well as all your essentials, such as medications and toiletries. If you’re not a strong swimmer, wear a life jacket whenever you’re doing water activities, and never consume alcohol before swimming, water skiing, or boating to prevent accidents. Lastly, always wear sunscreen before heading outdoors to protect yourself from UV rays.

For those who want to have a beach holiday in an underrated destination, look no further than the Oberoi Beach Resort in Mauritius. Located right in the heart of a national marine park, you get to stay in a villa equipped with a marble bathroom that has a sunken bath and shower, a private terrace, and amazing garden views. The resort has a spa, an infinity pool, tennis courts, and a private beach where you can dine on fresh seafood and the local Creole cuisine. Evenings at the beachside restaurant require you to dress up a bit, so make sure to pack some clothes to create a smart casual evening look.

2 Point Grace, Turks and Caicos

Turks and Caicos are known as a party island destination, but Point Grace manages to maintain its serene vibe, making it an ideal place for a beachside retreat. Situated along Grace Bay, this luxurious boutique hotel has suites and penthouses with breathtaking ocean views, and its amenities include a world-class spa that’s famous for its seawater treatments, a fitness center, a golf course, galleries, and boutiques.

3 Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman

This village-style resort is located about two hours away from Dubai, and it has gorgeous views of the mountainside and a mile-long private beach. Stay at a beachside or poolside villa made of timber and natural stone, then later, have a soak at the Arabian-style hammam at the spa. You can also indulge in some soothing spa treatments or join a yoga class at the outdoor yoga pavilion. For your meals, head to the Summer House and enjoy contemporary international cuisine for lunch, then have dinner at the Spice Market for traditional Middle Eastern food.
