Whether you are a spa traveller seeking a new and different experience, or looking to incorporate your long-term fitness regime while travelling, there are several ways to turn your next superyacht charter into the ultimate wellbeing experience.
A superyacht spa experience
To enhance your superyacht experience many yachts have their own dedicated spa areas. Some are in the form of cabins that can be transformed into a treatment area, while others have entire spa decks with everything you would expect to find in the top spas ashore.
If you are looking for the ultimate on board pampering experience, opt for a superyacht with a masseuse on board. A few yachts have crew members that are trained as beauty therapists, and if not then your Burgess charter broker can arrange for specialists to come on board.
Fitness on board
A yacht is the ideal platform on which to optimise your fitness. From watersports to fresh ocean air and vitamin D-enriching sunshine, simply being at sea is a tonic for both the mind and body. Take it one step further and a superyacht can be an arena for all manner of fitness activities. From swimming, diving, and snorkelling to running on the beach, hiking up mountains, or sessions of yoga and Pilates on board, a superyacht platform lends itself to all manner of fitness activities.
Many superyachts also have their own gyms on board, with as many types of gym equipment as might be found in your gym at home. Some even have their own qualified trainers among their crew, or you could bring your own personal trainer (they will however need to use one of the guest cabins on board).
Nutrition and diet
Gourmet fare need not be highly calorific or full of fat when on board. Your superyacht chef will discuss any nutritional requirements with you and can tailor your meals to complement a healthy lifestyle. They will then plan creative ways to deliver delicious, nutritious meals using locally sourced fresh foods that are full of flavour. They can even support a detox diet, and teach you how to create appetising meals at home.
Whether you are looking for occasional spa treatments or a complete change of lifestyle, the following superyachts can deliver everything from the ultimate spa experience to fitness training and nutritional advice. Alternatively, if you have found the perfect yacht for your next charter but aren’t sure about the on board spa facilities then don’t be put off as your Burgess charter broker can recommend destination spas in your preferred cruising area or create a semi spa experience on board. Contact your nearest Burgess charter broker for further information and recommendations.
