Jumpstart your wellness regime with a tranquil stay at a luxurious Airbnb coupled with spa-like amenities. From yoga studios to saunas to chef-kissed wellness kitchens perfect for smoothie blending, an escape to one of these seven Airbnbs will feel like your own private spa retreat.
Villa Torno, Lake Como, Italy
Located lakeside and offering magnificent views of Lake Como, the spectacular Villa Torno comes with its own bio sauna. Woven into the natural rock foundation, the sauna was discovered during renovation of the 17th-century home — originally constructed and restored with stones from the nearby quarry. Adjust the humidity to make it a dry, Finnish-style sauna or steamy Turkish bath. Complement the steam experience with a dip in the private pool, complete with its own terrace, shower, and relaxation area. Also enjoy, the beauty of Torno village (set below the villa), with its narrow streets, simple homes, churches, and referred affectionately by locals as the “Little Portofino of Como Lake.”
House of Kuna, Yucca Valley, California
This magical boho-chic desert home — with separate yoga studio — has every making of a private spa retreat. Set on 2.5 hilly acres overlooking California’s Yucca Valley and just minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, House of Kuna offers the ultimate desert escape. Rise predawn to enjoy a mesmerizing sunrise, practice yoga in the stunning, separate studio, hike the nearby trails, and relax afterward with a dip in the custom-designed ‘cowboy pool’ and hot tub, surrounded by boulders and overlooking the desert. End your day by stargazing on the patio by the fire pit. Added bonus: furry guests are welcome.
Serenity Villa, Santorini, Greece
As its name suggests, the Serenity Villa in Oia offers a total Zen experience with its full-size pool and hot tub overlooking the sea; private sauna, Jacuzzi and hammam. Savor too, the outdoor dining and lounge spaces, and bathrooms with gorgeous stone showers. Other spa-like amenities include fluffy white robes, slippers, and towels. Forewarning: you will not want to leave.
Secluded Hamptons House, Amagansett, New York
One step inside this dreamy white-furniture-and-fabric home evokes immediate relaxation. Wander the gardens sipping morning tea, dip into the pool, steam in the private sauna, and hide under a shade tree with a good book in hand. Reserve a private chef to keep meals easy and healthy, although pescatarians may want to venture out for a fresh lobster dinner. We love the authentic Hamptons style: shingles, peaked roof, hardwood floors, and relaxing color palette with plenty of natural sunlight. Hang on Atlantic Beach, work out in the home’s fully equipped gym, and later, walk the Jackson Pollock paint-splattered floors of Pollock-Krasner House on a guided tour.
Villa el Mango, Costa Rica
Mango trees surround this spectacular, three-level, four-bedroom villa, aptly giving it its name. Featuring king beds and 4.5 bathrooms, Villa el Mango rests just north of Santa Teresa beach, where surfers can walk to the world-famous breaks. Other standout features include floor-to-ceiling windows and bi-fold glass doors leading to a teak deck and infinity-edge saltwater pool, lush gardens, and a concierge to organize every wellness need (massage, yoga, and private chef).
Camelback Mountain View, Paradise Valley, Arizona
Outdoor enthusiasts delight. Hike Camelback Mountain, just steps outside the door of this exquisite home. Then return to dip in the private pool surrounded by cushy sun loungers, and soothe achy muscles in the outdoor hot tub. Prepare a healthy meal in the dreamy chef’s kitchen, and relax in the home’s soothing earthy tones, beamed ceilings, and cozy fireplaces.
Villa Limon, Miami
In the emerging wellness city of Miami, comes this peaceful contemporary oasis, spacious enough (six bedrooms and six bathrooms) for a full-on spa retreat. Just minutes from the Design District, Wynwood, and downtown, Villa Limon offers complete privacy and seclusion. Work out in the home gym, laze in the stunning pool, practice yoga alfresco in the garden, and have your private butler arrange at-home spa services.
