  • Laura's Review of Wildfitness Crete

    What is Wildfitness and who's it for?

    I knew Wildfitness had a different approach to exercise before I arrived, but I was amazed to discover just how deeply it ran throughout the retreats’ ethos. Everything gravitates around natural movement and getting back to how things used to be for evolutionary man. Sure, the fitness schedule incorporates all the aerobic and anaerobic training of any typical regime, but without any of the gym work or repetitive, formulaic structure. This was great for me as I’m not someone who can turn up to the gym each day without eventually getting bored and throwing in the towel all together.

  • Louise's Review of Santani Wellness Resort & Spa, Sri Lanka

    Review of Santani Wellness Resort & Spa

    Tell us about the resort – what makes Santani special?

    Santani is a relatively new architect-designed property built on 120 acres of former tea plantation and owned and run by Sri Lankans in central Sri Lanka, about five hours by car from Colombo (you can also take a seaplane to Kandy, which would be a great way to arrive). The last part of the drive, from Kandy, is on a climbing, winding mountain road. You can’t even see the resort until you’re there, that’s how tucked away it is.

  • My Apprenticeship at Health and Fitness Travel

    I started my apprenticeship on the 3rd September last year and after a one week introduction of training and learning about the brand, I hit the ground running. There are no photocopying and tea run type jobs to do here but rather a variety of different tasks, some done on a daily basis and others done intermittently. In the last 7 months I have learnt everything from social media marketing strategies to the development and upkeep of our website, and most recently I have been involved in the design of the new site that is set to be launched in the summer. 

  • My escape to The Jewel Dunn's River Resort

    Having just returned from a seven-night stay at Jewel Dunn's River Resort, it's safe to say that it goes above and beyond any other all-inclusive resorts I've stayed at. I ended my holiday in Jamaica feeling refreshed, revitalised and keen to book my next trip back.

  • My Insight and Experience from my PR and Marketing Internship

    Having only started 2 months ago, after this experience I truly believe the expression “people with clear written goals will accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than those without”. Combing my degree in Travel and Tourism Management and my passion for travelling and all things fitness, it was unquestionable that I was going to enjoy and make the most out of my time at Health and Fitness Travel doing the PR and Marketing internship.

  • My Inspirational PR & Marketing internship with HealthandFitnessTravel.com

    I’m reaching the end of my 8 week PR and Marketing internship with Health and Fitness Travel and I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone. From my first day working for the company, I knew that this internship would be different to others. At Health and Fitness Travel, I’m always kept busy throughout the day and am never short of things to do; with blog writing, product research and web copy are just some of the variation of tasks I’m set each day.

  • My PR & Marketing Work Experience Placement in the Travel Industry

    With three years of university over, a degree under my belt and still no clear idea as to what to do next, I was thrilled when I found out I’d got the PR & Marketing Internship with Health and Fitness Travel.

  • My Travel Marketing Internship

    Having started my internship only 6 weeks ago, it's incredible to see how far I've come. My development can be attributed to the genuine responsibility I've been given, as well as the support of a close-knit team. Each day presents a diverse range of challenges, meaning time has flown by whilst learning lots of new skills.

  • My Travel PR, Marketing and Creative Writing Internship

    Testing the waters of the travel PR and marketing industry during my internship with Health and Fitness Travel could not have been a more worthwhile experience. Having struggled to find a career path since graduating, my eight week internship gave me the opportunity to change direction and discover a career path I am now passionate about pursuing.

  • NAMA Restaurant Review: Healthy and Super Tasty Raw Vegan Food

    Nestled in Notting Hill, NAMA foods is one of London’s best raw vegan cafes and I was lucky enough to enjoy a very delicious (and very non-traditional) Sunday lunch there in December with my boyfriend. I am a vegetarian and whilst I enjoy eating cooked vegan food at home, I never prepare raw vegan meals for myself so I was really looking forward to a treat. At NAMA, their brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks and of course dessert menus all offer a delicious variety of some of the healthiest foods available, similar to some of the raw and vegan food wellness retreats we send our clients to.
