5 Spa Getaways for the Perfect Wellness Weekend

Last updated on April 3rd, 2024 at 04:07 pm

At the start of the new year, wellness is top of mind. But my definition of wellness goes beyond the societally imposed expectations for physical and emotional transformation. Wellness, to me, is about doing what feels good to you — whether that means getting after it at the gym, sipping a glass of red in a bubble bath or spending the weekend somewhere primed for relaxation.

I’m especially keen on the latter activity. When it comes to wellness escapes, there’s something for everyone, proving that you can have your cake and eat it, too. Below, I highlight five spa getaways that make for the perfect start to 2024. What better way to kick off the new year than with a vacation? And in case nobody’s told you, yes, you absolutely deserve it.

Miraval Berkshires Resort & Spa

This luxury retreat in Lenox, Massachusetts is open year round. You can snow-shoe and cross-country ski in the winter, golf and rock-climb in the warmer months and enjoy Miraval’s signature yoga and breathwork sessions any time of year. Whether you’re just dipping your toe into the wellness world or are a veritable wellness enthusiast, the range of offerings appeals to virtually everyone.

Canyon Ranch is a household name in the world of wellness retreats. At Canyon Ranch Tucson, choose from curated packages tailored to your goals, a “Stay Your Way” experience or an organized retreat. Whichever you choose, you won’t be at a loss for things to enjoy, and Tucson’s stunning natural landscape makes an excellent playground for rewarding outdoor adventures.

The Ranch Malibu doesn’t mess around when it comes to wellness. Yes, there are magical spa treatments and organic, locally sourced, plant-based food, but The Ranch is really more of a luxury bootcamp. Choose from seven- or nine-day programs, all designed with fitness in mind. Days include morning stretching, intense mountain hikes, strength training, naptime, massages and nourishing cuisine. It’s tiring, challenging and seriously rejuvenating.

Lake Austin Spa Resort is the adults-only, all-inclusive, cottage-chic hideaway you didn’t know you needed. Texas Hill Country is truly an underrated gem of a destination, and this resort takes full advantage of its serene natural environs.
