It’s winter: time to kick back with a chai latte and plan your wellness retreat.

Canyon Ranch

Perhaps the most famous destination spa in the U.S., Canyon Ranch has been bringing wellness-seekers to Tucson, Arizona, since 1979. With an emphasis on long-lasting personal growth, guests can learn new ways to exercise, eat and practice self-care. Walk through the Sabino Canyon surrounded by towering saguaros, or re-balance with a deep relaxation massage.

Travaasa Hana

This AAA Four Diamond spa retreat is located in Hana, on Maui’s eastern tip. The focus here is on authentic local experiences — Lomilomi, for example, is a powerful Hawaiian healing tradition — and regional pursuits, such as throw net fishing, lei making and learning the ukulele. An on-site restaurant serves local cuisine with a stunning view of Hana Bay.

Blackberry Farm

Tucked away on a 4,200-acre estate in East Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains, Blackberry Farm is a rural retreat that’s also a culinary powerhouse. They take their food and wellness very seriously; menus for both are inspired by the serenity of the mountains and the lush bounty of the gardens. Try an Appalachian Body Purification treatment or plan your trip around one of their renowned Epicurean Events.

Rancho La Puerta

Just across the U.S.-Mexico border at the foot of Mount Kuchumaa, this 4,000-acre property is the original destination spa. Since it opened in 1940, the resort has hosted many celebrities including Burt Lancaster and Oprah Winfrey. Take part in fitness classes and meditative hikes and learn “Mexican-Mediterranean” cooking at their culinary school, La Cocina Que Canta.

Sea Island

Just off Georgia’s coast is an oceanside resort with a rich history. Opened in 1928, Sea Island has hosted politicians, playwrights and presidents, including George and Barbara Bush on their honeymoon. Come for the traditional Southern hospitality of their one of their AAA Five Diamond hotels, The Cloister (the other, The Lodge). Stay for the tranquility of the spa, where you can walk the labyrinth or soak in a mineral bath.
