Best Wellness Retreats in America to Relax and Recharge
If an unplugged vacation full of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation is on your mind, here are four wellness retreats that just might be the restorative experience that you need.
Top Wellness Retreats
Canyon Ranch (Arizona)
This all-inclusive resort popular with celebs is an excellent spot for anyone looking to get away and experience a little rest and relaxation. Pamper yourself with an ultra-luxe spa treatment or slow it down with a yoga class before enjoying a meal under the stars. Canyon Ranch has a Life Enhancement Program that is very popular: a week-long program meant to help you discover your best self and commit to changes that’ll make you a happier, healthier person long after the retreat is over. I have friends who have visited Canyon Ranch and have raved about how transformative the experience is. It’s on my bucket list!
Art of Living Retreat (North Carolina)
The Art of Living Retreat is one of the best spots you can go for a truly relaxing escape. They offer a handful of different retreats, including one that focuses on happiness and another that encourages you to spend several days in silence, immersed in the restorative and scenic Blue Ridge Mountains.
New Life Hiking Spa (Vermont)
Whether you’re looking to lose a little weight, find some peace and quiet, or simply reconnect with nature and reflect on your experiences, the New Life Hiking Spa has something for you. This retreat is truly about reconnecting with nature, so you won’t find as many amenities or super-fancy accommodations at this one, but you can still sign up for a massage or other relaxing treatment to follow your hike.
Golden Door (California)
Situated in San Diego County, this sprawling resort encompasses 600 acres of land for you to hike, bike and otherwise explore during your stay. With room for only 40 guests at a time, you’ll be immersed in an intimate and transformative experience. Whether you’re there to focus on your mental, physical or spiritual wellness – or a combination of all three – you’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for at this popular retreat.
The next time you’re looking for the perfect getaway, consider one of these wellness retreats. Slowing down and spending a few days at rest might be just what you need. Have you experienced a wellness retreat that should’ve made this list? Leave a comment and let me know!
