Luxury

For when you’re feeling rundown and need a solo getaway, holistic couple’s retreat, health and wellness refresh, or just a mindful getaway with friends, family or yourself — the West is calling. Arizona, New Mexico and California’s deserted, ruggedly beautiful landscape can sometimes be just the thing your mind and body need for a healing vacation.

 

Make it a friends or family affair, go solo or completely recharge and rejuvenate with holistic teaching and wellness courses. Whatever the vibe, let these top spa and wellness resorts guide the way.

 

Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa, Tucson, Arizona

A list of award-winning spas and resorts wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Arizona. The stunning state is essentially a hub for incredible wellness resorts for all ages and interests, and for good reason. See what we mean in Tucson at Miraval. Find balance with equestrian treatments, aerial yoga and even zip lining. If all else fails, the natural beauty alone is worth the retreat.

 

Mii Amo, Sedona, Arizona

For those on the Sedona side of things, Mii Amo is a true destination resort to recharge, reflect and unwind, solo or with loved ones. Book spa services for the body and spirit with a focus on Native American traditions and treatments themed around the indigenous culture. Immerse yourself in the region’s deep connection with its history with well-planned itineraries for all ages. Branch out with some art and design experiences or explore the breathtaking landscape by biking and hiking the resort’s nearby trails. Join group fitness classes or spend some personal time on your own — even get into the meditation rhythm with the Mii time series.

 

Cal-a-Vie Health Spa, Vista, California

When in California, do what the locals do and focus on self-care and mind-body wellness. Cal-a-Vie Health Spa boasts a rugged, one-with-nature vibe with all the 5-star luxury you’d expect from an award-winning locale.

 

Sunrise Springs Spa Resort, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Another resort rooted in Native peoples’ traditions and heritage, Sunrise Springs Spa Resort in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is for those looking to really learn about health and wellness and bring it back home with them. Guests, families and solo travelers join wellness workshops and movement classes, soaking in the hot springs, yoga and uncovering greater intentions for life outside of the resort.

 

No matter where your travels take you, if a mind-body overhaul or simple refresh is on the itinerary, these resorts should be on your list.
