Trailhead Spa at Brush Creek Ranch, Wyoming
The right blend of rustic charm and lavish features, this spot perfectly embodies the region's rural spirit. Try the Spirit Journey massage (conducted in a tepee!), which begins with a traditional sage burning to clear energy and remove negativity (brushcreekranch.com).
Ocean House, Rhode Island
They say the sea has healing powers—and you'll believe it does after a visit to Ocean House, a 12,000-square-foot spa that overlooks the Atlantic. Try the soothing Ocean Experience, a full-body sea-salt-crystal exfoliation and massage (oceanhouseri.com).
Meadowood Napa Valley, California
At this wine-country retreat, guests can order up a From the Vines treatment, which uses grape extract (an antioxidant) during a three-and-a-half-hour experience that includes a facial and massage. The final course: chef-prepared nibbles, enjoyed in the relaxation garden (meadowood.com).
At the South American–inspired Tierra Santa Healing House, try the wet spa. The eight-station circuit incorporates waterfall showers, a hammam, and an herbal steam room; it concludes with a cup of rosebud tea while you lounge on the tepidarium's heated stone beds (faena.com).
Parker Palm Springs, California
The hotel's funky, Jonathan Adler–designed Palm Springs Yacht Club spa takes a hedonistic approach: Think seaweed wraps, spray tanning, and single-malt whiskey—in other words, pure indulgence (theparkerpalmsprings.com).
Wanna wrestle with a mechanical bull? Practice your hatchet throwing? This is your place. After a day of adventure-seeking, relax with the Hill Country Honeybee massage and body treatment, which nourishes skin with organic honey, ginger, and rosemary (travaasa.com).
