Best Winter Spas in the US
Christmas and New Year might be the highlights of every winter season in the US, but there is always a price to pay. With all the cooking, travelling, eating and partying they involve, one might end up quite tired. And being tired is definitely not a good condition to start a new year.
Fortunately, the solution is quite simple: take the weekend off, turn off your phone and head for the nearest spa resort. The good old steam bath and some professional massage sessions are known to make wonders, but if you want to try on something special than better check out these best winter spas in the US:
Four Seasons, Jackson Hole
The amazing views around Jackson Hole are themselves a balm for your stresses eyes and mind. But why not combining some first-class skiing in this luxury resort with a session at the resort’s most renowned spa? The spa at Four Seasons Resort picks the best of the surrounding mountains (like wild berried and peppermint) and combines them in a unique fashion to obtain a truly rejuvenating treatment (also unique in USA).
Copperhood Retreat and Spa, Shandaken
This spa is close enough to New York city in order to qualify for a combo vacation, yet far enough to make you feel like you’re in the middle of wilderness (and technically you are). Far more than a simple spa, the resort combines the most various techniques, from yoga and Ayurveda to hiking in the woods. In winter you can stick to Yoga, sauna and hot tub – just don’t expect marvels after one day, this is the kind of place where people spend weeks.
Enchantment Resort, Sedona
Ticked among Sedona’s impressive red rock, this resort brings together dramatic landscape, world class accommodation and, most importantly, one of the best spas in the States. Called Mii Amo spa, this oasis of relaxation combines high tech facilities with the traditional virtues of saunas and whirlpools. Plus, pluuus, access to the spa is free for hotel guests!
The Biggest Looser, Utah
Shown on national television and featuring a lot of success stories in its portfolio, this spa and health centre in Utah is certainly not a looser. Its fitness instructors and life coaches are said to be among the best in the country, and the views you’ll get from your window are not bad, either. Just remember that this spa comes with an engagement, so unless you’re looking to change to a healthier lifestyle or lose some kilos, I suggest picking a less sophisticated spa.
