Cost Comparison: Skyterra Wellness Retreat vs. Asheville Vacation

As you can see, our rates bundle premium accommodations and activities that could be much more expensive if purchased independently.

Skyterra Wellness Retreat: Value & Benefits

Many of us are willing to pay a premium for the most relaxing, rejuvenating vacation possible. If feeling good is your top travel priority, a wellness retreat may offer the best value for your dollar. 

A traditional vacation requires more planning, is less competitively priced, and is likely to derail your health and wellness goals. After considering lodging, car rental, meals, and drinks (purchased at tourist-town prices), you’re usually spending a significant amount just for the essentials. Add on activities like massages, outdoor recreation, and guided tours, and that laid-back trip gets an ambitious price tag.

Does a weeklong escape justify this type of expense and planning? After all, it’s not uncommon to return from a vacation and see you’ve gained weight or feel totally wiped out from late nights, festive drinking, and the exhaustion of getting around.

But there's an alternative: a vacation that bundles many of those travel-related expenses into one competitive flat rate, and eliminates the hassle of planning. Our wellness retreat offers long-lasting transformational effects that set you on a long-term path to looking and feeling great.
