5 Spa Treatments That Help You Focus
Seasoned buffs, returning visitors and those new to the spa game flock to Rancho La Puerta. Widely known as “the original fitness resort,” this wellness mecca has delivered a total mind-body-spirit rebalance for more than 70 years to those who make the trek to Tecate, Mexico. Its all-inclusive program, cottage-style casitas, fitness classes, hiking trails, organic-food fine dining, hands-on cooking classes and on-site farm make it the true retreat experience, but its therapeutic, one-on-one spa sessions make it really something special.
The Night Spa
Guests can always expect over-the-top luxury and personalization at the Four Seasons in Washington, D.C., an urban oasis set in the heart of Georgetown with stunning accommodations and an equally spectacular spa to match. Whether you’re there for business or spending time with family, the hotel’s real “I can’t believe they have that” credibility lies in its customized itineraries that cover everything from in-room massages to moonlight drives to see the monuments (via private car and tour guide) in the nation’s capitol.
The Sleep Inducer
A secluded hideaway on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way and Ring of Kerry, Parknasilla Resort & Spa is as iconic (it’s been operating for 120 years and counts the likes of Princess Grace of Monaco and Prince Rainier among those who have sequestered there) as it is idyllic. With its nature backdrop, Atlantic breezes and sunset views, the destination oozes a relaxing, off-the-radar atmosphere even before you step foot into the spa, a place with well-appointed therapies designed by Elemis, an indoor swimming pool and tiny pockets for post-treatment relaxation.
Perched on the Pacific Ocean, the Bungalows at Terranea are quickly becoming the go-to transformative spot for those looking to jump-start a healthier routine without starving (there’s eight restaurants at the resort offering dishes that are more indulgent than diet) or working out around-the-clock (think yoga classes that are easy to transition into and hikes that seem more like tours than tough training). Even the spa entrance area is set up as a can’t-miss luxury shopping and beauty boutique that’s bound to have you running late for your appointment time. Somehow, even in this setting, you can still lose weight and feel better than ever.
Yoga After Dark
Need some motivation to get into downward dog? Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa’s new 1,000-square-foot, open-air Serenity Yoga Pavilion hosts a wide variety of night classes, including Hot Yoga and Barre. The tranquil space features a floating dock and evokes a Zen-like atmosphere through serene décor, flickering candles and natural interior elements.
The Great Outdoors
As the “astronomy capital of the world,” Tucson visitors don’t need much cajoling to get out and stargaze—and with Tanque Verde Ranch’s 60,000 acres of mountainous desert landscape nestled between Saguaro National Park, the Rincon Mountains and the Coronado National Forest, it is pretty much impossible not to partake in the popular nightly ritual. Guests can take in views from the comfort of their guest room balconies or join expert-led astronomy sessions on the rooftop spa terrace.
Private Garden Party
Spacious, sophisticated, and stunning, Eau Spa is best described as an “adult playground”—a place where cupcakes and champagne are the relaxation modes of choice. No visit is complete without a stop in the ever-social Self Centered Garden, where soft-lit pools and cabanas make a spectacular moonlight setting.
