39580 S. Lago del Oro Pkwy., Tucson
The issues that contribute to addiction, eating disorders, chronic pain, and PTSD are always multifaceted, so it makes sense that the approach to overcoming them would be dynamic too. Set in the high desert of Arizona with majestic mountains views, this center is dually licensed as a Special Hospital and Behavioral Health Residential Treatment Center and pulls from a broad range of therapeutic resources (including the 12-Step Process, adventure therapy, equine experiences, EMDR, and a labyrinth) so that it can provide the most comprehensive and personalized care and solutions for its in-patients.
Sorrel River Ranch
Mile 17, Hwy. 128, Moab
Those in the know agree that a trip to Utah isn’t complete without a stay at Sorrel River Ranch. Located right in the middle of dramatic cliff tops, this resort has farm-to-food plates, a great spa as well as national park walking, river rafting, off road touring, and family friendly activities. Check into one of the 55 wood-beamed suites and feast your eyes on dramatic views of the Colorado River. Or better yet, come with family and friends and stay at the 2,000-square-foot Ranch House.
Zion Mountain Ranch
9065 W. Hwy. 9, Zion National Park
We have it on good authority that Zion Mountain Ranch is a total gem. Go here for canyoneering, night campfires, and horse back riding, as well as the incredible, life-changing landscapes and scenery. In fact, this National Register of Historic Places member is the only place to stay within the confines of Zion National Park. Top-notch restaurants and modern amenities are above and beyond what one might expect from such a remote location.
Mii Amo Spa
525 Boynton Canyon Rd., Sedona
This spectacular retreat is one of our favorite destinations in the U.S. The rooms are basic but the treatments, thanks to incredible practitioners, are anything but. The menu offers everything from psychic massage to a Sedona clay wrap, to reiki and lymphatic drainage. Meanwhile, spiritual treatments include meditation, hypnosis, and past life regression. It’s like three years of therapy in three days.
Montelucia Resort & Spa
4949 E. Lincoln Dr., Camelback
There’s definitely a Moorish paradise thing happening throughout this Scottsdale resort. Rooms are clustered in sections so it feels like walking through little villages with a Kabash pool where people lounge under the cabanas from day into night. The heart of the resort is the massive Moroccan-style Joya spa (the building is an architectural feat in its own right) their signature being the Hammam Experience—start with an herbal black soap scrub, followed by a steam, whirlpool, sauna, cold deluge and a final rest in the ‘warming room.’ They also offer acupuncture, cupping, and IV therapy, making this just a bit different than your traditional hotel spa. The resort is set at the foot of the Camelback Mountain, which makes for a great morning hike through the desert landscape.
L’Auberge de Sedona
301 Little Ln., Sedona
Get sucked into the energy vortex in Arizona Red Rock country's lap of luxury. Head directly to L'Apothecary Spa where their therapists can create oils, salts, scrubs, and other skin and bodycare products at their herbal blending station full of herbs, flowers, and essences that could be the cure for what ails you (or at the very least, very, very relaxing). When you're not at the spa, hang out in your creekside cabin or get cozy by the fireplace in the lodge. Be sure to take in the starry skies.
15044 N. Scottsdale Rd., #150, Scottsdale
The only thing better than Cos Bar's famously vast offering of makeup, fragrance, bath, and beauty products (including the newly-launched goop organic skincare line) is the exceptional customer service provided by the knowledgeable, genuinely nice beauty consultants, which is exactly how founder Lily Garfield envisioned it back in 1976 when she opened the original Aspen outpost. There are Cos Bars all over the country, including New York, La Jolla, and Montecito.
