20 Best Wellness Retreats for 2024

“Travel is like a tonic to me,” Norman Rockwell once said. “I need it to recharge my batteries.” At no time can that statement feel more true than when the calendar strikes January 1. With the season of holiday overindulgences behind us, a fresh new year awaits. What better way to kick it all off than with a wellness-focused break to reset mind, body, and soul? (Though to be clear, an R&R holiday is appropriate for any time of year.) From unlocking the key to longevity in Germany to getting pampered like a princess in Hawaii, here are T&C‘s top 20 picks for the best healthful retreats to book for 2024.

Biohack like the Ancient Romans

Six Senses Rome

Where: Rome, Italy

Perfect For: Mind and body resets—without sacrificing that plate of bucatini.

What: Is it really possible to achieve peak wellness in the middle of a city as indulgent—for all the senses—as Rome? Six Senses believes so, which is why the brand, which is famous for its spa-centric resorts nestled in much quieter corners of the world, chose the Italian metropolis for its first city property. You’ll almost forget where you are as you get lost in the massive, two-floor wellness center. A reservation to spend a few hours soaking in the Roman baths are a must but if you want to take your wellness journey even further, sit for a personal consultation to devise a treatment plan tailored to your goals, whether it’s hacking sleep, improving fitness, or detoxing from one too many glasses of Chianti.

Good Vibes in Ojai

Ojai Valley Inn

Where: Ojai, California

Perfect For: Card-carrying members of the Woo Woo Establishment.

What: For 100 years the Ojai Valley Inn has lured A-listers with its promise of tranquility and vortex-enforced good vibes (and those famous pink sunsets). Even those who don’t believe in woo woo things will find it hard to be charmed by the hotel’s 31,000-square-foot spa village, which has two pools, a packed calendar of classes, an apothecary, and a cafe. Recently it has also introduced a new mental health and spiritual wellness program, with things like life coaching, sound baths, reiki healing, and even time with a medium on the menu.

Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa

Where: Palm Beach, Florida

Perfect For: P50 addicts—#IYKYK.

What: The Eau Palm Beach & Spa is already a favorite for local grande dames in need of a great facial (which uses Valmont products, by the way). Now its 42,000-square-foot spa has become even more in-demand thanks to a series of new treatments by Biologique Recherche, the cult favorite skincare brand that is the secret weapon of everyone you know with glowing skin. Facials will use pharmaceutical-grade hyaluronic acid and patented technologies to deliver maximum anti-aging results. And we can’t forget about the body: book the Peaks of Slimness massage treatment, which promises to blast away cellulite in just 10 sessions.


Coquillade Provence

Where: Luberon Valley, France

Perfect For: Mindfully indulgent Francophiles.

What: Feasting on the beautiful bounties of Mother Earth is essential to a perfect Provençal holiday and now, thanks to a new wellness program coming early 2024 at the Coquillade Provence Resort & Spa, terroir applies not just to food and wine, but to wellness pursuits too. Botanical and medicinal plants for healing therapies, body oils and scrubs made from grapes grown in Coquillade’s vineyards, an on-site naturopath and herbalist—these are just some of the things on the menu. Take it all a step further and stay in one of the brand new spa pool suites—each grants private access to the spa and has its own private pool and garden, with picture perfect views of the region.

Perfect For: Zen with a side of excellent skiing.

What: It’s the best of both worlds at Aman Le Mélézin, where the pistes are top notch (along with the other snowy pursuits on offer here, like moonbiking and tobogganing down to Courchevel Village), and so is the property’s sprawling spa (a godsend after a long day on the slopes).

It’s also not for the faint of heart. The program at Lanserhof—its third location, in Sylt, also known as the German Hamptons, opened in 2022—is built around fasting. But thanks to its team of medical experts, and with more than 280 treatments on the list, each individual gets a hyper-tailored plan featuring high-tech things like a 3D body scan for melanoma screening, chronotherapy to adjust circadian rhythms, special beds to promote air purification, hypnotherapy, cryotherapy, personal training, and plenty of massages.

A new spa menu is all about celebrating the region’s natural ingredients, from the seaweed that comes from the neighboring Yasawa Islands to coconut oil harvested on VOMO.

    The Ranch Malibu

    Where: Malibu, California

    Perfect For: Oscars prep.

    What: Long before wellness retreats became mainstream, there was the Ranch Malibu. The celebrity favorite is legendary for its stringent programs: we’ve all heard about those grueling hikes with just a handful of almonds as fuel. Well, it’s popular because it’s effective, and the Ranch’s expansion plans are proof. It now has a permanent outpost in Italy and, come March 2024, will set up another home in the Hudson Valley.

    Where: Washington, Connecticut

    Perfect For: Manhattanite design snobs in need of a break from the city.

    What: Auberge Resorts’ ultra-chic and sumptuously cozy Mayflower Inn and Spa is far enough from New York for prime rebooting of mind, body, and soul, but close enough that you don’t need to jump on a plane. Given that the spa here is an outpost of The Well, the Flatiron wellness sanctuary, it’s a destination in and of itself. And a highly Instagrammable one at that—because why shouldn’t you have your sound healing therapy and lymphatic drainage and get in a little geotag brag too?

    Where: Austin, Texas

    Perfect For: Aspiring horse girls.

    What: A little bit country and a little bit new age wellness is what you’ll get at Miraval Austin, the serene 117-room retreat in the hills overlooking Lake Travis that strikes a great balance between abstinence (phones are discouraged) and indulgence (there is alcohol). There are endless experiences to choose from a la carte: a challenge course, yoga classes, crystal meditations, line dancing, tarot card readings, photography workshops, sound baths, the list goes on. We particularly love Miraval’s innovative work in equine therapies, from riding lessons to the soundtrack of Texas music to simply spending time with a horse as a powerful healing exercise.

    What: 2024 will see the debut of a new wellness center at Oil Nut Bay, the 400-acre resort tucked into the tip of Virgin Gorda with nothing much around except the crystalline waters of both the Caribbean and the Atlantic. And this won’t be just any run-of-the-mill center—it’s going to be situated overwater, so marine life below can be visible through the glass floors. The spate of healthy offerings are just as tuned in with Mother Nature: full moon intention-setting ceremonies, aura cleansing with sage and palo santo, swimming with turtles, paddleboard races, and therapeutic afternoons at the Animal Rescue Barn, which has horses, emus, and flamingos, are on the menu.
