Bella Vita Retreat

If you’re looking for a vacation packed full of fitness go to Bella Vita Retreat in Palm Beach, FL. Located about 4 miles from the downtown area of Palm Beach, this resort is situated directly on the beach in the quiet area of town. Bella Vita Retreat’s most sought after package is their Beach Boot Camp. Guests wake up to the sound of the ocean waves and are soon recruited for the morning power walk and boot camp session. The schedule is filled with yoga, nutrition classes, personal training, stress reduction and massage treatments. There are also options to get additional private yoga and personal training sessions if guests are interested. All staff members are extremely knowledgeable and often stay afterwards to answer questions for guests.

The food is great, but very healthy. You won’t find fries and burgers on the Bella Vita Retreat menu and the price doesn’t include alcohol. There is a restaurant on the premises and a very nice outdoor/indoor beach bar. They have a full menu although if you’re trying to lose weight, you should stick to the regimen provided by Bella Vita Retreat. You’ll have plenty to eat and drink. The retreat is also close to the downtown area of Palm Beach (about 4 miles). It’s a short cab ride to shopping and sight seeing. Though it is nice to get out and about, the retreat offers a wonderful atmosphere and live entertainment in the evening. There is a full time concierge available to set up any additional excursions, but the retreat also offers snorkeling, parasailing, surfing, windsurfing, kayaking and more. The beach chair service is also a plus with padded beach lounges and an attendant to get drinks, etc.

This isn’t any typical boot camp as the property has been recently renovated and offers plush linens and towels, very nice bedding and pillows, valet parking and beach chair/umbrella service. In addition, you can relax at the pool or in the Jacuzzi and have an afternoon tea at the onsite beachside restaurant. And the best part? You’ll get continued support after you leave. You have lifetime access to the personal trainers and nutritionists to call or email them with questions about health and fitness. Bella Vita Retreat is a step above the rest.
