Ready to slow down, unplug and boost your well-being? Whether you want a restorative city break or a life-changing wilderness retreat, head to one of these four unrivaled pampering destinations. And just breathe…
A Desert Retreat
Surrounded by the stark beauty of the Sonoran Desert, Fairmont Scottsdale Princess offers not one, but two luxurious spas. Well & Being Spa harnesses the healing power of natural Southwestern ingredients and holistic therapies to restore your equilibrium. Indulge in a head-to-toe experience like the Havasupai Falls Rejuvenation, which includes a scalp massage, a Sedona clay facial mask and a desert-salt body scrub, or book a session with a licensed acupuncturist. Sisley-Paris Spa, a boutique spa experience located within Well & Being, invites you to discover the relaxing properties and exceptional results of the plant-based French skincare line in one of only 27 Sisley-Paris spas in the world. Book the three-day retreat experience and stay in a luxurious Fairmont Gold Bryte Bed Restorative Sleep room.
Whether you choose treatments at one or both spas, take advantage of this desert sanctuary’s extensive facilities, from the waterfall grotto to the adults-only rooftop pool. Delicious dietician-approved meals and a wide range of classes, including aerial hammock yoga, enhance your journey of renewal.
A Coastal Escape
If white sands and aquamarine water are your idea of bliss, combine spa sessions with a Caribbean getaway at Fairmont El San Juan Hotel on the award-winning Isla Verde Beach. Collaborate with your Well & Being Spa therapist to create a fragrant body scrub or oil for a customized treatment. Enjoy an aromatherapy massage, rejuvenating facial, or clear your mind with a yoga session beneath the hotel’s centuries-old banyan tree.
A state-of-the-art fitness center includes one of this luxury resort’s four pools, a juice bar and an open-air rooftop exercise space with breathtaking views. For stays through June 2023, you can book an unforgettable Spa in the Wild wellness experience that includes a private helicopter trip to a mountain hacienda for a coffee tour, couple’s massage and dinner prepared by the hotel’s executive chef.
An Urban Spa
A tucked-away hillside location, spectacular views of San Francisco Bay and extensive wellness facilities make Claremont Club & Spa, A Fairmont Hotel the ultimate urban retreat. Choose from a variety of ways to unplug and re-energize, whether you prefer tennis, yoga or leisurely laps in one of the three heated, outdoor pools.
Before exploring Berkeley’s famous locavore dining scene at the on-site restaurant, Limewood, book a tension-releasing massage incorporating therapeutic CBD or a special seasonal facial like the Amethyst Aromatherapy facial.
A High-Tech Respite
Home to one of LA’s largest spas at 14,000 square feet, Fairmont Spa Century Plaza fuses cutting-edge techniques with traditional holistic practices in a serene, wood- and stone-accented space. Make the most of facilities that include a sleek gym, an active therapy zone for pre- and post-workout, eucalyptus steam room, cedar wood sauna, women-only modern Hamman and a Himalayan pink salt room. Rev up your R&R with a biohacking power nap that combines infrared and neuroscience technology, lymphatic drainage and meditation all while in an anti-gravity state to deliver the ultimate in mental and physical restoration. You can prepare for a glamorous night out with a Red Carpet Radiance Facial devised by cosmetic medicine expert Dr. Rita Rakus.
Showcase your relaxed and glowing self by enjoying cocktails by the hotel’s rooftop pool as the sun slips behind the Pacific Ocean.
A Guided Wellness Journey
When you’re ready for a transformative personal journey, there’s no better place than the grand Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise overlooking a crystalline glacial lake in Banff National Park. This all-seasons wilderness resort offers year-round wellness retreats led by prominent yoga practitioners, life coaches and other experts. Whether you spend the day skiing, canoeing or hiking in the Canadian Rockies, you can recharge with spa treatments such as aromatherapy-based body rituals or post-hiking foot therapy to ease sore and stiff legs. Mulled wine or a mocktail with a Victoria Glacier backdrop in the Lakeview Lounge provides the perfect ending to a day spent restoring body and soul.
Hot Springs and Wine
On the site of an ancient geothermal spring in the heart of California’s wine country, Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa is a natural choice if you want to take the waters. You can reap the stress-busting, skin-soothing benefits from 27 minerals with a meditative swim in the spa’s outdoor pool or a soak in the outdoor hot tub or Roman bathhouse. Enhance the tension-releasing properties of the geothermal waters in the Watsu pool while your therapist takes you through a series of movements and stretches, or indulge in facials and body rituals using the French vinotherapy-based skincare line Caudalíe. Afterward, sample complimentary local vintages in the lobby, or pair selections from the tightly edited wine list with seasonal, regionally sourced cuisine at Santé.
