Travel + Leisure Names Mountain Trek “World’s Best Destination Spa”

Best International Destination Spa in the World

One of the most popular travel magazines in the United States has just honoured us with an incredible award. Mountain Trek Fitness Retreat and Health Spa has just been named #1 International Destination Spa by the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards for 2016!

The online announcement was made July 6 and the official recognition will appear in the August 2016 issue of the magazine. In the recent release Travel + Leisure wrote:

“The No. 1 destination spa outside of the U.S., Mountain Trek, in British Columbia, Canada is a retreat that specializes in weight loss. It ‘offers guests a phenomenal, dynamic boot-camp vacation while also providing an upscale resort experience,’ said one T+L reader. ‘The holistic approach to weight loss focuses on activities including hiking, yoga, and massage therapy, and a variety of fitness an nutrition classes.’”

Travel + Leisure AwardsThe Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards asks readers and members of the general public to rate top hotels and resorts based on six categories – and Mountain Trek beat competitors from all over the world to win top honors for:

  1. Accommodations/Ambience
  2. Treatments
  3. Service
  4. Food
  5. Facilities
  6. Value

Mountain Trek scored 98.13 out of 100 in the awards and the resulting write-up said: “Amazing food and you really lose weight.”

It sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. Mountain Trek Health & Fitness Retreat offers a boot-camp-like approach to fitness and meals that promote real weight loss. Guests are divided into hiking groups based on their energy that day. Over the course of their stay, guests participate in four-hour hikes, eat portion-controlled spa cuisine (think crab cakes with tricolor coleslaw and lemon-ricotta pancakes), and attend lectures on sleep, stress management, and nutrition; all while surrounded by mountains, meadows, and forests.

It then went on to say, “For 16 years, Mountain Trek Health and Fitness retreat has guided guests toward feeling fit and strong while enjoying the beautiful atmosphere of British Columbia. The all-inclusive weight loss retreat gives guests access to not only the great outdoors, but to nutritionists, massage therapists, fitness coaches, 24-hour gym facilities, an on-site chef, and much more. With an emphasis on fitness, detoxification, and relaxation, Mountain Trek provides a peaceful and wholesome retreat experience.”

One of the reasons Mountain Trek received the award is because we’re a boutique luxury fitness retreat and health spa program that offers guests so much more than just a beautiful place to relax. Our dynamic boot-camp-style retreat helps people of all fitness levels literally change their lives while immersed in the breathtaking beauty of British Columbia.
