LOCATION: Mozambique, Tanzania
HOW THEY’RE CHANGING WORLDS: A paradisiacal wonderland of white sand, turquoise tides and striking sunsets, the alluring serenity present at Azura Quilalea Private Island strikes the right tone for restoration – as does its clifftop spa. With an enchanting menu based on local ingredients and traditions, Azura’s masseurs use revitalising African body butters and Mongongo nut oil to nourish skin back to health And for the adventurous, there’s the Tribal Traditions massage where, enveloped in olive and shea butter, travellers get zen the African way, with massage strokes mimicking the beating of African drums.
NAME: Andronis Wellness Resort
LOCATION: Imerovigli, Greece
HOW THEY’RE CHANGING WORLDS: Tantalising tranquility and a good pampering await spa-goers at this gem, perched on the romantic Santorini coastline. At Andronis Wellness Resort’s Kallos Spa, experts blend techniques picked up everywhere from Sweden to Thailand, channelling East-meets-West vibes to help unite travellers’ minds, bodies and spirits. While their use of rocks taken from the heart of Santorini’s volcano is intriguing, it’s their signature sound ritual that’s the standout goody up for grabs here. First, the hypnotising vibrations of the Tibetan singing bowl free your mind from tension, lulling you into a meditative slumber until the sound of cymbals awakens you. Provided travellers throw themselves whole-heartedly into the practice, they’ll be back on their feet and ready to face the world in no time.

With a big focus on wellness and outdoorsy sports, their spa is all about harmonising body and mind, with a specialist set of massages and yoga classes on offer for winding down after a day’s worth of sporty jaunts. From balancing your yin and yang with a traditional Chinese Tui-Na massage, to relieving muscular aches and pains with a Seaweed Hot Stone massage, travellers can rest assured that their wellbeing is in capable hands.
