The Dreamiest Spas Across The Nation

So, summer is over…which means no more incredible vacations, right? We don’t quite think so. Because you deserve to pamper yourself year-round, we scoured the states for the best (and prettiest) hotel spas and wellness centers. From the coast of Maine to the desert of Utah, these relaxation destinations stand out above the rest. Here, five incredible spas to add to your end-of-the-year travel bucket list.

The Tree Spa

Hidden Pond

Pampering on the ground is so overrated. At Hidden Pond Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine, guests can indulge in a number of restorative treatments eight feet above the Earth’s floor. Nestled in the woods, three treetop spa rooms are connected by a catwalk that weaves through the trees. Topping off the resort’s eco-friendly approach to relaxation, many of The Tree Spa’s treatments incorporate ingredients picked fresh from Hidden Pond’s gardens, like rosemary, mint, and lavender. It suffices to say that this spa space takes tranquility to totally new heights.

Offering an otherworldly spa experience, this Utah retreat is inspired by the healing traditions of the Navajo that focus on the four elements of earth, wind, fire, and water. There are many soothing spots to fall in love with at this oasis—from the dreamy steam rooms to an airy yoga pavilion—, but we can’t help awe over this stone-lined step pool with desert views. Deep contemplation comes easy in this temperature controlled swimming hole.

Come winter, embrace the chill with a long day on the slopes and a post-ski spa sesh at Spa Montage in Deer Valley.
