Each year, millions of people come to Bali every year for vacation, but a few thousand arrive just to cleanse and heal on health holidays. The island is known for its yoga and meditation retreats, allowing detox retreats to thrive in this tropical paradise. A detox retreat in Bali is popular amongst people looking to change their life (and eating) habits in part from the island’s spiritual energy and culture. This includes purifications, nature connections – Bali is all about the forest and wildlife, meditations, and the belief of giving back to those who are not as fortunate. So, why Bali?
Bali is a highly popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia and tourism makes up 80% of its overall economy. Known for its volcanic mountains and colorful beaches, it is an area known for its deep appreciation for culture that performs for every visitor that comes by. Australia and China’s 2 million visitors yearly is the most in Bali tourism; Japan, Great Britain, India, and Malaysia are other major visiting states. The town of Kuta is well known in Bali for being the center of tourism with its shops, bars, and restaurants. Last year, TripAdvisor named Bali the world’s top destination.
The growing popularity of detox holidays and visiting detox retreats by people who live in the city is up across the board. They come for the health benefits through the retreat’s nutrition, meaning eating right always, and extensive exercise such as yoga, sports, and mental exercises with others to become mentally clear, bodily detoxified, and completely removed from stress. On detox holidays, people will pursue a specific detox plan with specific goals customized to fit people’s needs. By the end of the retreat, people find themselves with more awareness and knowledge to be in strong condition in the long-term, especially physically to know what to eat and stay healthy.
Bali is far from the craziness of the cities and has a stress-free environment that attracts people to the region. For those who want to detox their life, it is important in knowing what they want emotionally or physically, such as getting healthier by losing weight or getting right mentally and have emotional clarity. For many, they ask themselves what they want to gain from their detox and what is the perfect retreat for them along their stay. Indonesia is such an expansive country that one would feel extremely distant from the major cities.
For many who are looking for a special holiday far away from home to lose weight, detoxify, and rejuvenate themselves, Bali is a place that fits the bill. People want to lose weight fast in a place that isn’t meant to a gym or a rehab center. It is an environment that is much different and gets people out of their usual comfort zone which leads them to drain the stress and the toxins that remains in their system. People want to lose weight and invest in themselves with others who have the same goal. In a place like Bali, they will forget that they came here to lose weight primarily and will have a lot of fun doing so.
