One of the coolest things that city parents are gung-ho about this summer are wellness vacations for the family. Mumbaikars are taking off with their kids to wellness spas and resorts, where children along with their parents, are indulging in much more than just a fun-filled family time.
Bhavika Gada, who recently went abroad for a five-day wellness vacation with her children, says, “This summer, my husband and I decided to take the kids out on a different kind of holiday. The resort we went to had a wellness package that included yoga and zumba, swimming, different kinds of workshops, and organic meals. It helped introduce our children to healthy living.”
A fun and activity-filled introduction to the concept of wellness is what is attracting Mumbaikars. Nikhil Kapur, founder-director of Atmantan Wellness Resort, says, “Programmes where the whole family and especially the children experience wellness in a fun and relaxed manner are in demand. These specialised programs are prepared in consultation with educational psychologists. Through these shared experiences, kids learn to see healthcare and wellness as a fun activity.”
