Default Help me choosing between 3 domain names

Hello,
I am having trouble selecting the right domain name between the list below. I read a lot (too much??) discussions about Branding/SEO and I am now confused!
The new website is a directory of holistic (or health/healing) retreats (or resorts) mostly based on reviews. In 5 languages.

This is the choice:
1- Holistic-Retreats.com : keywords rich domain but not very brandable? Competition and confusion with a lot of other domains I guess. And Hyphen…
2- GoRetreats.com : short and one keyword, a little bit more brandable but not that great?
3- Tripolistic.com : Very brandable (my opinion?), no keyword (unless I do it under tripholistic.com, but would it loose its attractiveness?). Do you see it too close to tripadvisor so at risk of their lawyers??

Thank you for your time and support.
Ved.

I like tripholistic and also goretreats. I like holistic-retreats as well, but I can see how it might take longer to get good traffic and build that brand up, still doable though.

I'm no expert but that's my ideas. Maybe I'll list there soon!

Tripolistic.com... no question. It's very brandable, as you say, and memorable. You're like me... overthinker.

GoRetreats.com is best choice as it easy to get into memory and look like brand name.

Wow. Just wow. Don't know if you just did that or whether you are just teaching him a lesson. LMAO.

Well, you're down to 2 choices and the first one isn't brandable.

I suggest you move fast on it, huh?

Tripolistic.com -- remind me of the city, Tripoli. Not a very good choice in my opinion.

GoRetreats.com is easy to remember. That could help with branding.

We had $14,000 damage to our house from a hail storm, so I'm having One "hail" of a sale to cover the repair costs that aren't covered by insurance. Get $148 worth of my products for only $27. Only 40 copies will be sold - less than 20 copies left! Don't miss this one!!!

I think that tripolistic says NOTHING. At least add the H - tripholistic - so that people at least start to get a mental image and will recognize enough of what they are seeing to click if it's relative to them. But - if elejeffe77 was telling the truth, it's really beside the point, right.
