You might have been traveling over the holidays to see family and friends, but now it’s time to plan a weekend away for yourself. It doesn’t take much to convince us to skip town for a few days, and after looking for quick weekend getaways to shake off the winter doldrums, we’re ready to pack our bags.
From Navajo-inspired spa treatments to holistic healing journeys and wooded retreats, we’ve rounded up a few dreamy US destinations that won’t take long to get to, but might be hard to leave.
CANYON POINT, UTAH
A secluded location, stunning views, and full spa? Sign us up. This resort is tucked far away into the vast canyon lands and in addition to offering outdoor experiences and fine dining, its spa is “shaped by the healing traditions of the Navajo, with treatments designed to restore hózhó – the holistic wellness system encompassing beauty, balance, harmony and health.” Say no more.
Holistic health and wellness is at the core Mii Amo’s curated “journeys,” from restorative spa services to meditation and fitness classes, created to customize to your liking. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Arizona landscape so you can “tune out the noise, tune into yourself,” this restorative getaway is an experience not to be missed. It’s no wonder they named it “My Love.”
BIG SUR, CALIFORNIA
If you’re looking to feed your adventurous spirit, Ventana offers the perfect balance of “roughing it” while also offering world-class spa services and treatments. You can check out their glamping accommodations (complete with safari tents and fire pits) or peruse Spa Alila to awaken your senses and recharge. Oh, and did we mention the infinity hot tub?
BLOWING ROCK, NORTH CAROLINA
“Quaint” barely begins to describe the old-world charm of Westglow. Snuggled into the forested beauty of North Carolina, you won’t struggle to fill your days with everything from hiking and swimming to wellness programs and body treatments. Plus, you get an array of accommodations to choose from, from rooms in the mansion to private lodges.
