Uncover 3 close-to-home stays to uplevel your healthy mindset.

Spring is a time for renewal—yet this annual celebration of life isn’t limited to mother nature. The human mind, body, and spirit also require a little seasonal rejuvenation. Fortunately, these North American destinations cater to those in need of physical, mental, and emotional spring cleaning.

Grand Wailea, Maui

USA

When translated to English, kilolani means, “to look toward the sky.” A fitting name for a spa that promises such heavenly indulgence. Kilolani Spa at Grand Wailea is dedicated to blending traditional Hawaiian concepts with state-of-the art wellness practices.

The pioneering biostation offers anti-aging and wellness services that redefine preventative healthcare with a distinctly personalized approach. Advanced testing for over 100 biomarkers and in-depth personal consultations with an experienced medical provider help restore your body to its peak performance, alleviate ailments, and avert age-related diseases.

Of course, time spent in nature is the ultimate holistic medicine. That’s why guided rainforest hiking tours are offered as a daily workout. Or opt for the resort’s on-site fitness center, fully equipped with the latest in exercise technology. Afterward, take a dip in one of the resort’s multiple pools.

Conrad Punta de Mita

Mexico

Paying homage to the indigenous Huichol people and their customs, Conrad Punta de Mita reflects the Huichol’s foundational belief that holistic wellness and spiritual growth are dependent on one’s connection to the natural world. As such, the resort’s nature-centric design is evident throughout, highlighted by floor-to-ceiling windows ushering in views of the dramatic Pacific coastline and majestic Sierra Madre Mountains.

The resort’s commitment to the area’s natural ancestry is perhaps best displayed at the Conrad Spa, a 10,000-square-foot retreat transporting guests to another dimension of inner peace and soulful rejuvenation. Seven al fresco cocoon treatment cabanas are connected via a tunnel of plants and flowers, while the lush tropical vegetation provides serene privacy for outdoor showering. Then there’s the traditional clay temazcal – or “house of heat.” This 1,000-year-old immersive ritual is a form of cleansing for body, mind, and spirit. Afterward, indulge in the 90-minute Hitïarica massage, which fuses ancient techniques with medicinal plants and smoke to clear energy blocks and release tension.

Park Hyatt Toronto

Canada

Toronto might not be top of mind as a wellness destination, but the reimagined Stillwater Spa at Park Hyatt Toronto begs to differ. The brainchild of renowned designer, Alessandro Munge, the spa draws inspiration from Canada’s natural beauty and distinct seasons.

Recently reopened after a multi-year renovation, the Stillwater Spa is a sustainable wellness destination dedicated to offering tailored treatment plans — and that’s not hyperbole. Before the start of any session you’ll be asked, “What is your goal today?” What happens next is dictated by your answer.

Using earth-first organic and plant-based products, Stillwater Spa’s menu of bespoke body treatments, facials, and massages can all be adjusted according to stress levels, mental needs, and the body’s current physical state. While it’s impossible to go wrong with any service, the sea-inspired Wrap Ritual Marine Detox and Smooth is scientifically formulated to promote full-body detoxification.
