Top retreat leader Sophie Jones says goodbye to Costa Rica and travels to Bali
Once the go-to person for health and fitness retreats, Sophie Jones, now a "lost star" in the booming industry?
Having founded Bali Weight Loss (https://www.baliweightloss.com) on the island in Indonesia, Sophie tells us "I have taken all the experiences over the past years and packaged them into a retreat-style business which gives my clients directly what they want, which is weight loss, and from the most beautiful island on earth which really has to be Bali."
Costa Rica is known by many as the capital for health and wellness retreats around the world, so many see Sophie's choice as "a bad business decision" as one American retreat goer tells us. However others say otherwise and tell of Bali as being the "new Costa Rica" where it is faster and cheaper to put on retreats and the services are actually "better overall" a British citizen, James Howard reports.
Asia has been growing at an unprecedented rate over the last decade and their tourism industry is no exception. Since the Bali bombings in 2002 the so called by the locals 'island of gods' has made a remarkable comeback with over four million foreign tourists arriving to the small island in 2016 alone.
"Bali is booming" according to 'Wonderful Indonesia' the government approved and run organization for promoting travel and tourism in the country. This coupled with reports from the ground in Bali seems to be corroborated leading many to consider that perhaps Sophie Jones is "simply ahead of the game and knows where the health and wellness industry and retreat business is heading and setting up her place first" as retreat business consultant, Jerrold Halpin opinionated.
What will happen next we will have to wait and see yet what is for certain is that the wellness scene is not going anywhere any time soon and whether in Costa Rica or Asia's most popular island for tourists, Bali, it seems the retreat business is a safe investment.
