With the holiday season in full swing, a weekend escape to Canyon Ranch is the perfect way to rebalance and stay healthy during these winter months of decadent parties, unhealthy habits, and the usual stressors of urban living. Just a three hour drive from Manhattan, Canyon Ranch Lenox is an ideal retreat to detox and rejuvenate, to clear our minds and prepare our bodies for the New Year.
Tucked away in the Berkshires, surrounded by over 100 acres of natural beauty in the town of Lenox, Massachusetts, Canyon Ranch is a wellness oasis designed to truly inspire you into becoming a better version of your own self. Every step of your spa vacation from check-in to your final goodbye can be customized to address whatever concern or issue you would like to improve. From luxurious botanical treatments to soothing and healing therapies that revive body and mind, to wellness experts ranging from board-certified physicians to healing energy practitioners, Canyon Ranch offers a seamless integration of fitness and health experiences.
Their 126 rooms and suites provide everything you need for good quality restorative sleep, including fine linens and a sound machine, to prepare you for the myriad of on-site activities and services you can explore. The 100,000 square foot spa complex is home to the legendary spa, several gyms, cycling studios, tennis and basketball courts, indoor and outdoor pools, and beauty salon. From anti-aging and oxygen facials to Ashiatsu and Ayurvedic and Chinese therapies, Canyon Ranch’s treatment menu is truly what makes this such an impressive facility. With over 40 fitness classes and outdoor activities ranging from hiking to cross-country skiing and kayaking, there are options for every fitness level and interest. For those seeking to improve spiritual and emotional health, lectures and more holistic offerings like acupuncture, clairvoyant readings, and soul journeys are among a few of the many options. Custom programs can also include private consultations with top doctors, nutritionists and other such professionals to create a plan and personalized program for truly transformative results.
Although Canyon Ranch focuses on healthful eating, their savory dishes and creative menu won’t leave you feeling the least bit deprived. Head over to the chic and modernly decorated main dining room which features grand windows with views of the perfectly manicured grounds, or opt for a more casual farm to table snack in the cafe. Regardless, you will have an impressive variety of options, from a salad bar and daily changing station of specialities, to grass-fed burgers and lobster mac and cheese. Every menu item includes nutritional facts and the ingredients are sourced locally resulting in fresh, bold yet clean tasting dishes. Be sure to book a private cooking class where you can learn first-hand from a Canyon Ranch chef how to bring these healthy eating habits back into your daily life.
Canyon Ranch is one of the few all-inclusives that offer all meals and most activities in a luxurious and idyllic setting. Their integrative approach not only helps you discover new areas of wellness but can be a transformational experience allowing you to take new acquired skills and healthy habits into your routine back home, and all while feeling pampered and revitalized.
