The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority promoting the twin islands as a wellness tourism destination following the successful conclusion of the World Wellness Weekend.
The authority plans to highlight the diverse range of offerings available to both residents and visitors during Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month in January 2024.
This will be the second time that the Tourism Authority will host Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month, and wellness practitioners are encouraged to participate by sharing their wellness packages and activities with the tourism office.
Tameka Wharton, the Tourism Authority’s Wellness Pillar Lead and Director of Tourism (ag) in Canada, said that travel trends show that people still travel with the intention of relaxing and improving their overall wellbeing.
As people think about their New Year’s resolutions and how they want to spend the New Year, the Tourism Authority wants them to remember Antigua and Barbuda as a wellness destination that offers simplicity, tranquil settings, a laid-back pace, and incredible outdoor experiences with nature in local communities.
Wharton made these statements following the conclusion of World Wellness Weekend activities in Antigua and Barbuda, which the Tourism Authority and World Wellness Weekend Ambassadors, Tricia Greenaway and Alejandro Leo, have called “a resounding success.”
Over the weekend, from September 15th to September 17th, the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority hosted numerous energetic activities. As a result, the destination was awarded the official designation of ‘World Wellness Weekend Champion’ by the founder of World Wellness Weekend.
The activities were organized in collaboration with World Wellness Weekend Ambassadors to Antigua and Barbuda and World Wellness Weekend Leader Keisha Schahaff.
They included Tai Chi at sunrise, yoga at sunset, nutrition talks, tree-planting within schools, Socarobics in Barbuda, Pilates, Vinyasa flow yoga, and a wellness hike and scavenger hunt. The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority is excited to bring these and other activities organised by our skilled and dedicated wellness practitioners to visitors for the upcoming Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month.
The wellness month will be an immersive experience with carefully curated activities, both in resorts and in local communities. Visitors and residents will have the opportunity to discover new tours and participate in events that will enhance their wellness journey.
