We’ve always believed that the best way to treat the mind, body and soul is to travel — particularly somewhere with luxury amenities and holistically minded experiences within arm’s reach. This spring, you can relax and rejuvenate from a winter fraught with stress and weather maladies during a wellness retreat that doesn’t skimp on any sumptuous trappings. After a stay at any of these six sanctuaries, you’ll leave recharged and ready for summer.
Mandarin Oriental, New York
New York City might not seem like an ideal spot for a healing retreat, but when you check into this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, you’ll soon see why it is just that. The property itself is a modern ode to impeccable Asian-themed hospitality, while the incredible Five-Star spa is in a wellness-focused league of its own.
The Urban Serenity package is just the thing for the weary — it includes daily breakfast, a yoga or meditation session, a calming massage or a signature treatment designed to ease the effects of using digital devices, plus a detox juice from the spa.
Be sure to give yourself extra time to take advantage of the spa’s unique facilities — a hydrating dip in the oxygen-filled Vitality Pool is not to be missed.
Carillon Miami Wellness Resort
Located on North Miami Beach, just far enough away from the frenzy of South Beach, Carillon is an all-suite, ocean-side luxury wellness retreat. This sleek enclave of health-minded pampering has several new spa treatments for spring, all meant to reinvigorate the mind and body after months in chilly conditions.
Right now, score 15 percent off the Hydrate and Re-Energize IV Drip (it replenishes nutrients that instantly give you energy) in addition to receiving a complimentary consultation with a functional medicine practitioner who specializes in healthy aging.
Other new treatments include an oxygen-infused facial, a mentally rejuvenating Ayurvedic massage and a lovely lavender sea salt scrub and pedicure.
Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
Arizona is a hotbed for wellness with its fair share of luxury facilities, but Well & Being Spa at Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is something special. This Four-Star retreat is a true desert oasis focusing on the beautifying treatments we love, while also offering a bevy of health-minded services and experiences that will leave you feeling refreshed.
Try one of the spa’s newest treatments from RevIV for some serious boosts for your body. Pick from five different medical-grade IV infusions and four nutrient booster shots — including one that hydrates and detoxes, another that regulates appetite and a skin-reviving wonder — during this short-and-sweet therapy.
Finish off your afternoon of indulgence with a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage meant to soothe sore muscles and restore balance.
The St. Regis Aspen Resort
While the mountains offer a unique respite all their own, the Four-Star Remède Spa Aspen within Four-Star The St. Regis is quite the complement to sun-soaked peaks and crisp alpine air. Indeed, wellness is very much a part of the resort, despite what you may think of its tony Aspen address or its adventure-seeker lore.
To wit, the Holistic Healing & Mindfulness Package aims to address a host of mind-body issues over the course of at least three days. The bundle includes a healing massage; a kombucha cleansing facial; a daily session with a shaman; a vibration assessment; customized anti-inflammatory organic meals; and unique take-away amenities like a tailored plan for healing and organic skincare products so you can continue your regimen at home.
1 Hotel South Beach
On paper, this entirely health-focused hotel might sound like it belongs tucked in a more tranquil locale, but once you enter the gorgeous, nature-inspired beachside venue, you’ll realize Miami is just the place for it. The chic, eco-friendly vibe reverberates around the sophisticated property (check out the living walls) and works in harmony with the other amenities aiming to keep you centered.
Yoga and Pilates classes are complimentary; the stunning all-white spa specializes in holistic treatments; the first Spartan Gym is like a boot camp on steroids; and the new Soul Cycle location will have you sweating buckets in no time at all.
When you’re not focusing on physical fitness, hit the rooftop pool or find a stretch of beach for a mental break.
The American Club
This Five-Star Wisconsin hideaway is known for its lavish Five-Star Kohler Waters Spa. But the resort has other wellness offerings beyond the sanctuary. One such place is the Yoga on the Lake facility, which features vinyasa flow classes with calming water views.
The resort’s Asan-ahh Yoga Package grants you the chance to experience it and a whole lot more. With the deal, you’ll get two nights at the resort, three yoga classes, a three-course dinner, a 50-minute pedicure at the spa, a cocktail at one of the hotel’s five restaurants and discounts on additional spa treatments, yoga classes and boutique purchases.
