Connect Again with These 3 Spa Retreats
Because beauty is more than just skin deep, it is important to continue the quest for mindfulness and inner peace. Partaking of therapies is meant to not only bring enlightenment, but introspection, and personal awareness. Spagoers can benefit from results such as increased productivity, stress reduction, deeper sleep, and better focus.
Look for these 3 spa retreats to help you regain that connection with yourself:
Six Senses Spa: Samui, Thailand
Dotting a tranquil island headland overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, the 66 villas at Six Senses Samui artfully stir the senses. In the same vein, the resort’s graceful spa conjures relaxation, borrowing from regional traditions and exemplifying the laid-back Thai way of life. Help your prana (life energy) flow freely with the Thai Healing rite, which loosens blockages in the body’s energy lines, reducing anxiety. Virtuoso guests can ease into peace with a complimentary massage.
Spa Montage: Deer Valley, Utah
Nestled amid northern Utah’s Wasatch Range, the 220-room Montage Deer Valley, built in the Craftsman style, melds into its mountainous landscape. With panoramic windows, Spa Montage brings the vista – and its meditative quietude – indoors. Aspen resin and propolis from Park City’s bees are among the local ingredients used in the spa’s house-made products. Choose a mind calming Art of Breath tutorial as a prelude or finale to holistic therapies, such as the 90-minute Earth & Water ritual.
Spa Botánico: Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico
Tapping into the folklore and curative traditions of Puerto Rico’s village healers, known as manos santos, the spa offers a menu brimming with herbals and botanicals. An Apothecary Portal holds shelves lined with oils and balms made from village-grown herbs and plants, each providing specific mind, body, and spirit support. An authentic manos santos launches every treatment with a prayer and suggests ingredients based on the results desired. Try the Body Soak, Herbal Compress, and Massage ritual, which employs eucalyptus, lemongrass, and garden-grown ginger to infuse a sense of vitality. Or unwind to the rock-a-bye rhythms of a hammock massage, performed in one of two tree house style treatment rooms.
