A deep sense of wellbeing infuses the island of Mallorca. Perhaps it’s the fact that it’s soaked in sunshine for most of the year. Or it could be the pervading fragrances of wild rosemary and citrus, which are commonly used in aromatherapy treatments to refresh and rejuvenate. But more likely, it’s Mallorca’s pristine landscapes and oceanic panoramas that uphold the island’s palpable sense of peace. Complementing its relaxing surrounds, Mallorca’ wellness scene is blossoming. From state-of-the-art yoga studios to organic juice bars and sumptuous spas, follow our guide to Mallorca’s wellness hotspots for a truly relaxing break.
Ziva To Go

The food they serve is raw and vegan, mostly locally sourced, and contains all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants you need for a shining bill of health. In lieu of a latte, try the Golden Milk—steamed milk muddled with turmeric that’s said to reduce blood pressure.
