Our hectic lifestyles rarely allow us to disconnect and take some time for ourselves, but we think it's important to do so and should definitely be one of your priorities for 2020. We experienced an overnight stay in Marbella, which was focused on our wellbeing and here's what we got up to... 

Stay and dine at Nobu

Positive space, positive mind. When you decide to take some time out for yourself, whether it is 5 or 5,000 miles away, choose an inspiring space that makes you feel at ease. We had the pleasure of staying at Nobu Marbella, which was definitely a unique and relaxing experience.

We're all guilty of sometimes not choosing the best and most nutritious options. However, during a wellness break it's important to feed your body and soul. Choose healthy and sustainable food options that will make you feel good – Nobu resturant definitely didn't disappoint! 

Visit the spa

Try aerial yoga

Step outside of your comfort zone and take part in an activity that you wouldn't normally do. We opted for aerial yoga - good for the mind, body and soul. There's nothing quite like doing exercise in the Spanish sunshine!

Take a drive to Malaga

If you'd like to experience the views of Marbella in ultimate comfort and luxury, Ford has just unveiled the new Ford Puma, which we were lucky enough to drive through the mountains from Marbella to Malaga. Taking a leisurely drive through this amazing landscape is definitely something we'd recommend. Every wellness trip needs a thrill, right? What's better is that the new Puma has a MegaBox, which provides a deep storage space in the boot, meaning we could throw all of our activity gear in there and go.
