Whether you want to recharge, master the art of a digital detox, or decompress with friends or family, wellness retreats offer guests an opportunity to slow down and engage in self-care. From an island escape to an all-inclusive resort, big city indulgence to rustic mountain hideout, these nine destinations make your health and wellness the center of attention.
Sanctuary Camelback Mountain, Paradise Valley, Arizona
Tucked against Camelback Mountain in the desert outside of Scottsdale, the perfectly named Sanctuary is an oasis of peace and tranquility—from its idyllic Zen meditation garden to spa services such as its signature Luk Pra Kope, a Thai massage that incorporates organic medicinal herbs. Guests looking to get even more out of their stay can book one of Sanctuary’s 10 overnight wellness-focused packages, such as the Satori Wellness, which along with lodging in a casita or suite includes everything from a nutrition consultation to daily meals and spa treatments. Each stay can be individually customized to include a range of health-focused offerings and adventures including private desert hikes, tennis sessions, and even a personalized weight management plan.
Ojai Valley Inn, Ojai, California
Everything about Southern California's luxe Ojai Valley Inn is geared toward wellness, from its olive tree-laden setting to its unlimited daily complimentary fitness and wellness classes that include spinning and body conditioning. Give meditation a go, open your body's energetic pathways with qi gong, or choose from eight-plus types of yoga (hatha, power, and flow to name a few). Guests can also jump-start new habits and relaxing hobbies with onsite classes such as cooking, macrame, and beekeeping. The resort features several outdoor pools and an onsite Spa Cafe, with a made-to-order pressed juice bar and both vegan and gluten-free foods so you can refuel before luxuriating in the next treatment or activity.
