When you think of wellness, what springs to mind? If you’re seeing visions of green juices and hot yoga classes, you’re not wrong! Wellness is the idea of taking care of oneself fully in mind, body and spirit — boutique wellness, however, is a more customized approach to health. That’s why SwellWomen and charming beachside hotel Puro Surf have paired together to offer adventurous travelers El Salvador’s premier wellness retreat experience.
When it comes to SwellWomen’s boutique wellness, the devil is in the details. The bespoke itinerary of this 7-day retreat, hand-designed by SwellWomen’s Chief Officer of Bliss Lulu Agan, promotes glowing, holistic health through a focus on yoga, surf, cuisine, culture and a sense of adventure. Puro Surf is a brand new boutique hotel of just 13 rooms set into beautiful surroundings of El Zonte. Perched on a cliff in front of a world-class point break, the hotel and its associated surf academy have been set up by a group of surfers that are passionate about the sport of surfing making them the perfect venue partner for SwellWomen.
El Zonte, El Salvador is a surfer’s paradise. Dining is open air, where guests luxuriate in nourishing ingredients that are sourced from the surrounding farms and local fisherman, feeding the local economy and providing our guests with a taste of authentic El Salvador. There are daily surf lessons with instructors who are patient and accommodating to both beginners and experienced surfers, as well as blissful yoga classes designed by our team of instructors to complement and soothe the muscles used in surfing.
The most nourishing component of the entire retreat, however, is the community.
At SwellWomen, we like to break the mould of wellness by offering retreats that are customized to be pure bliss, from the morning meditations to the massage treatments, and from our culture excursions down to the linens we sleep on at night. We pride ourselves on cultivating an atmosphere where women can escape from daily life and reconnect with themselves. Surrounded by tropical abundance, most women have no problem stepping into the wild. We encouraged every guest to identify what ignites their fire, and to follow that bliss relentlessly whether on the surfboard, on the yoga mat, or anywhere in between.
SwellWomen’s El Salvador Surf and Yoga Retreat is November 10-17, 2018. The booking price includes all meals, daily surf lessons and yoga classes, a surf photo shoot, amongst so much more.
