Find the Best Weekend Retreats in the World 2022

Looking for an escape this weekend? We feel ya. Luckily, there are getaway yoga retreats happening all over. Hop over to Costa Rica, down to Bali, or over to Thailand. Or stay right where you are in the UK, Australia, or the USA. Wherever you are, there are beautiful weekend retreats happening right now. Replenish yourself, you deserve it. 

A rejuvenating weekend getaway is totally possible. Even if it is a last-minute weekend getaway, you can still walk away refreshed, energized,  and ready to take on the world. And just because your weekend getaway is just a few days, you can easily pack in some daily yoga classes, mindfulness meditation sessions, massage spa treatments, and healthy meals.

You could easily take the time to get to know a certain type of yoga practice more intimately, like restorative yoga, hatha yoga, yoga nidra, kundalini yoga, or yin yoga. (Sorry, you probably can't fit a yoga teacher training into a weekend retreat)

Or tune up your mental wellness with a meditation and yoga retreat. Begin each day with meditation classes, followed by vinyasa flow yoga classes in the (probably) outdoor yoga studio.

Find your wellness, relaxation, or healing on a weekend retreat. Go on meditation retreats or spiritual retreats. Or just kick it in the hot tob at the retreat center and gawk at the surrounding natural beauty.

You know, whatever you want.

Find yourself the perfect place for your yoga holidays this year.

Top Short Yoga Weekend Getaways in the World

While ideally, we would all have the European mentality when it comes to vacation, where we can take off months at a time to explore the world and nourish ourselves, mind, body, and soul...
... but the reality is simply that many of us do not have that option. Instead, we are left with sporadic three-day weekend breaks and a mad dash to our web browser in hopes of finding the perfect meditation retreat or woman retreat or silent retreat or whatever for a weekend trip.

It's tough.

But hang in there! There are so many options and many of them are pretty high quality, too.

Not bad for quick search for "weekend getaways near me", huh?

Here is a quick list of all of the best weekend trips that are happening now, assuming that you live near one of these areas. Some of these retreat centers offer impressive vacation packages while others may simply serve as a quiet getaway for your own spiritual retreat of sorts. Many come with hot tubs and all of them will improve your life.

Romantic Weekend Getaways

All you need for a romantic getaway is good company and plush pillows. A few massage spa treatments, gourmet meals, and incredible views certainly help. With all of the luxury spa resorts sprinkled throughout the world, you will definitely be able to find something special for you and your lover. If you are looking for something heavy on the romance but not on the budget, then check out the bed and breakfasts within a few hours of wherever you are. There is nothing quite like being pampered in a bed and breakfast atmosphere!

Luxury Weekend Retreats in the US

If you are looking for a resort spa experience, then a weekend may be all you need for this vacation. Check out the Stonewater Cove Resort and Spa in Missouri for some serious pampering in the midwest. The Lodge at Woodlock in Pennsylvania will make you drool when you see their indoor pool. For a beautiful Sedona experience, check out the Mii Amo Spa, where luxury practically echoes off of the red rocks. Or for a beautiful classic that is tucked away in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina (and also serving as a great romantic weekend getaway destination) is the Westglow Resort and Spa. 

Weekend Retreats Near New York

New York City, while popular, is actually *not* the most popular vacation destination in the area. What with Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts and the Hamptons just up the way, there is really no reason to stay in the city for this upcoming long weekend. Instead, escape to a bed and breakfast resort for a weekend of relaxation, pampering, and rejuvenation. 

Short Vacations in Florida

Florida is a top getaway destination for people on the East Coast of the US, thanks to the tropical beaches and 24/7 party scene in Panama City and Miami. Grab a group of your silliest friends and make a run for it down to the warm, welcoming waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Miami is especially perfect for those hen weekends (bachelorette parties), where all you want is a good time. 

Short Breaks Near the UK

If you're looking for a nice, relaxing atmosphere to head this Friday evening, then check the availability at the Lainston House Hotel. Located in Winchester, the luxurious Lainston House is a charming 17th-century country house turned hotel that can easily be your reprieve. It could easily serve as a romantic getaway for couples or a quiet sanctuary just for you. It is a bed and breakfast with jaw-dropping landscapes. You can take some of your coworkers up there for a team-building experience, complete with boardrooms for those ever-important meetings, or you can ditch your coworkers because who wants to vacation with the people you work with?

You can also head over to Burren Yoga Centre in Ireland for a quiet meditation retreat. They offer daily yoga classes, mindfulness meditation workshops, and singles holidays breaks. It could be exactly what you need to make it through to your next major vacation. 

Luxury Escapes in Australia

Australia knows how to do luxury, so it's no surprise that they have tons of spa resorts all throughout their massive country. If you're in Queensland, check out the Lizard Island Resort. It is located right on the Great Barrier Reef, yet is almost totally secluded. On the other side of Australia is the Bali Hai Resort and Spa in Western Australia. It is perhaps the most romantic spa resort, thanks to its isolation and firey western sunsets. And as the name suggests, they offer a lot of spa treatments that are a blend of both Australian and Balinese culture. Perfect!

Yoga Weekend Retreat in Europe

Europe is perfect for weekend getaways because you can easily hop between countries. If you'd like a little escape from your daily life, then check out all of the weekend yoga retreats throughout Europe.  Most retreat centers will include delicious meals, each unique to the style of the retreat or the region you are in. There are also a lot of fun activities that you can explore, depending on the area you choose. You can find silent retreats with guided meditations and hiking in nature. Or you can find a spiritual yoga retreat tucked away in cabins in the Alps, where you can reconnect with your soul. You can book a couples retreat too. They usually come with relationship workshops and fun activities like horseback riding. Or indulge in an all-inclusive European vacation package. A lot of what you learn can be applied to your daily life. Whatever the case may be, there are tons of weekend retreats in Europe to be explored. A lot of them can be incredibly healing if you want that out of your retreat. Grab yourself a room and make good use of your weekends this year.

Yoga and Meditation Retreats

A lot of people just need a little fine-tuning in their mind. Take a weekend to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life so that you can focus on the good stuff. Choose a retreat with meditation classes so that you can learn how to incorporate meditation into your day to day life. Choose a place out in nature so that you can take in the natural beauty. Having a weekend retreat like this every once in awhile helps you live more happily in your busy life. It teaches you tools, like breathing exercises and guided meditations. They usually serve vegetarian food too so you can get a sort of detox experience out of it too. Meditation retreats can be incredibly rejuvenating.
