NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 11, 2016) - Antigua and Barbuda with award-winning boutique hotel, Barbuda Belle, are offering Americans the perfect, 'Post-Election Wellness Escape' package to combat the intense level of stress that people experienced during the election season. The 2016 election campaign season lasted over 18 months, and was one of the most adversarial in recent history, with daily coverage of the various elections and nominees across various mass media and social media platforms. This deluge was a significant source of stress in 52% of American adults according to the survey released by the APA (American Psychological Association). Stress negatively impacts a person's health and wellbeing that can lead to: headaches, insomnia, high blood pressure, increasing the risk of heart attacks, aching body parts and depressing the immune system making people more susceptible to infections and diseases. Now that the election is over it is time for people to focus on their health, and Barbuda is the perfect answer.

To complement your stay, you will stay at Barbuda Belle, the newest resort to open, with his-and-hers alfresco massage tables and a small herd of horses to take guests around. A six-bungalow exclusive retreat sitting on a solitary, 15-mile long beach, each bungalow is beautifully decorated including air-conditioned beds to ensure guests can sleep and rest in their ideal temperature.
