The guides below, which will continue to evolve and grow as we discover amazing spots around the globe, have been a long-time in the making. In fact, a comprehensive Escapes guide (and app, coming soon!) has been on our wish list since goop was born. Below, you’ll find getaways for every occasion, whether you have a free weekend and want to hop in the car for a two-night stay, or are looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. There are also plenty of options for when you need some self-care, either to reboot your system or recover from trauma. We have stayed in most of these, but not all. The rest are recommendations from trusted friends who have never led us astray. Speaking of, we’d love to hear about your favorite getaways. Drop us a line, or hit us up @goop, #goopgo #goopgetaway and we’ll regram our favorites.
