Antigua and Barbuda has revealed exciting plans for Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month. Visitors and residents alike are invited to indulge in the destination’s enriching wellness experiences as they embark on a journey to enhance their quality of life in January 2024.

Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month offers a range of activities that have been carefully curated for participants in resorts and local communities.

These activities include wellness retreats, spa experiences, hiking trail exploration, off-shore island excursions, yoga on secluded beaches, culturally immersive experiences, and healthy eating options.

CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James, said, “Antigua and Barbuda have a wealth of natural attributes and skilled wellness service providers. There is plenty to do and uncover in Antigua and Barbuda for those hoping to enrich their mind, body, and soul, and we can’t wait to wow you in January!”

In addition, the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority has announced two exciting challenges open to participants of all ages: the adventurous ‘Four corners of Antigua and Barbuda Hiking Challenge’ and the invigorating ‘7 Minute Ice Bath Challenge’.

The Four Corners of Antigua and Barbuda Hiking Challenge, organized by Wadadli Trailblazers, offers outdoor exploration within Antigua and Barbuda’s national parks and lush, rolling hills.

Four hikes with varying degrees of difficulty will take place during the month, with hikers trekking to the historic Fort Barrington, picturesque Gaynor’s Bay, and Signal Hill. Participants will also visit Barbuda’s unique Darby Cave.

Meanwhile, the 7 Minute Ice Bath Challenge* organized by organic wellness haven, Wellness Footprints Antigua, operated by Antigua and Barbuda 2023 Wellness Champion and Wellness Ambassador Tricia Greenaway, highlights the benefits of an ice bath.

Participants taking the plunge will aim to sit in a bath filled with ice for seven minutes. A therapeutic experience, ice baths are known to have many benefits, including helping with focus and meditation, relaxation and better sleep, muscle recovery, and improving mental health.

Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Brand Ambassador Keisha Schahaff, an astronaut and wellness practitioner, has given her stamp of approval to Antigua and Barbuda Wellness Month.

During the month, she will offer twelve people complimentary access to her wellness retreat themed around discovering the power of space, wellness, and personal growth.

“Remember, we begin with a total reset and cleansing of the system. When the energy in the body is moving, so is everything in your life,” said Schahaff.

Marketing Communications Manager and Wellness Pillar team member at the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Maria Blackman, said, “We believe that our destination has all the assets for those wishing to lead a well lifestyle. We are excited to showcase the wellness community in Antigua and Barbuda, and we look forward to meeting everyone beginning or continuing their wellness journey in January.”
