Wellness and eco retreats are the vacation spots for those of us looking to be inspired, to stay mentally and psychically fit, or simply to unplug from everyday life. We looked at a few favorite wellness escapes from around the world that are unique and incorporate yoga, spas and all things healing.

Kamalaya Koh Samui – Thailand
A vacation spent at the Kamalaya Koh Samui wellness sanctuary and spa resort on the Koh Samui Island in Thailand means healing and detoxing amongst the lush green forests and baby blue seas. Along with Kamalaya Koh Samui’s wellness, yoga, and recreational facilities, the escape offers a bunch of wellness programs (in areas like healthy lifestyle, detox, stress & burnout), all soothing for the soul.

Xinalani – Mexico
If truly falling off the grid to rejuvenate is your thing, Xinalani is the place to be. This eco-retreat center is only accessible by boat in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Surrounded by the healing elements of the earth, Xinalani provides a safe haven for spiritual growth and the restoration of the mind and body. Find yourself in the midst of a yoga session or swimming alongside dolphins. The activities at Xinalani are endless.

Floating Leaf – Bali
Floating Leaf Eco- Luxury Retreat in Bali is a favorite because it not only provides yoga and spa programs but also a chance to see the treasures of Bali and learn Balinese traditions. From surfing to photography to Balinese healing, Floating Leaf nurtures both the healer and traveler within us.

The Coast Ridge Retreat – San Francisco, California
If you love fitness or up for a physical challenge, the Coast Ridge Retreat is your perfect getaway. Located between Mt. Tamalpais and the Pacific Ocean, the program is a 4-day retreat that challenges your approach to life. The retreat aims to reboot yourself physically and mentally: realizing purpose, relearning health, nourishing love, play and fitness.

Two Bunch Palms – Palm Springs, California 
We love Two Bunch Palms for its naturally healing mineral waters. You will not find any more creative offering of classes, including “Discover your power animal”, “Harmonic vibrations sound bath” and “Vino & Van Gogh” to name a few. Of course you still get a luxury 77 acre resort with delicious farm-to-table cuisine, and full spa offering from Shamanic Healing to Reiki and one of our favorites, Thai massage. 

Esalen Institute – Big Sur, California 
If your idea of a blissful vacation is working on your spiritual self, and naked moonlit Jacuzzis over the cliffs near Big Sur, you will love Esalen. Esalen is a spiritual retreat center with a rich bohemian past that welcomes all those who seek beyond wisdom, a higher conscience, what is beyond society. Esalen provides workshops, hot springs, meditation, and most importantly a community with opened arms. *Esalen reopens July 28th 2017

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Hurraw!

We here at LOVE GOODLY have a problem – a lip balm problem. This is all thanks to to our friends at Hurraw! We’re just going to start out by saying if you haven’t tried one of these balms you are seriously missing out (hint hint).

Follow the jump to learn more about Hurraw! and find out how they’re able to – in their own words – “keep it real”!

What was the inspiration behind Hurraw!?
It sounds expected… but our intention was only ever to make super high qual vegan lip balm. We’re still working on that.
Why did you choose to create an eco-conscious brand?

What other way is there?

What does it mean to live life at the helm of such an authentic brand?
All encompassing. manufacturing consumes every minute of every day! but fulfilling and grateful
How has Hurraw! changed your life?
It’s confirming that we can make incremental positive change.
What advice would you give to someone reading this, who is inspired by your story and wanting to start his/her own eco-friendly company?
If you want to make/do/be something, do it with the best intentions and it will be successful. Don’t rush. Focus. Be patient. Never compromise quality. Always respect your customer.  If it ever becomes about profits, stop. If you’re making lots of money, you’re doing it wrong.
How important is it for a company to give back to the community?
If you can’t use your influence, skills and knowledge to try and make positive change then why are you even getting up in the morning?
What is your daily routine (or maybe first thing you do in the morning)?
cuddle dogs. feed dogs. feed chickens. feed squirrel. feed birds. water and harvest garden (or shovel snow). make tea. ride bike. make balm. repeat.

What can you always find in your purse / wallet?
I carry a beat up Reisenthel collapsable market basket which will have to be pried from my hands one day 😉  In it is the latest batch(es) of Hurraw for obsessive quality checks, a “what remains is future” pin from Patti Smith and sometimes my cell phone, if i can find it.
Who is your lifestyle icon? 
Anyone looking up instead of down 😉 …anyonewith a kick ass attitude that is actively helping animals or other beings.
Three words to describe yourself or company?
keeping. it. real.
