Located just 45 minutes north of the Phoenix valley, find CIVANA Wellness Resort & Spa, a 20-acre Sonoran desert reprieve that’s dedicated to rebalancing mind, body, and spirit. This adult-only resort adheres to four pillars — Movement, Spa, Nourishment, and Discovery. Stays include access to daily wellness experiences ranging from mindfulness, restful amenities, on-site wellness experts, and over 5000 square feet of fitness, yoga, and meditation spaces. 

Book one or two treatments at the spa, which boasts innovative treatments, a hydrotherapy thermal circuit of hot and cold pools, and a beautiful sanarium. The culinary experience at this wellness retreat is meant to nourish your body and soul, too. There are two restaurants on property; Seeds offers hyper-seasonal meals and high-vibe foods for breakfast and lunch while Terras serves scrumptiously fresh and modern food inspired by the region.

CIVANA’s remote location offers access to nearby hiking and biking trails so you can soak in that Arizona sunshine and acquaint yourself with the cacti-speckled landscape. There’s also a beautiful meditation labyrinth on property. 

Luxe Ranch: Triple Creek Ranch in Darby, Montana

Triple Creek Ranch isn’t just an adults-only vacation option — it’s also all inclusive. That means you can book your trip and forget the rest once you arrive at the luxurious mountain-hideaway property. Choose between the bustling Lodge, just steps away from an outdoor pool, or opt for a secluded and private log cabin that’s tucked into the pines along the banks of the Bitterroot River. 

Your stay comes with meals, beverages (including alcohol), and the majority of ranch activities. Opt for horseback riding through wildflower meadows in the spring or freshly fallen snow come winter, ATV adventures (for those who want to get their adrenaline pumping}, cattle-working adventures, white-water rafting, and invigorating cross country and dog sledding itineraries. For more low-key options, consider signing up for a soap or candle-making class, fly fishing, yoga and guided meditation, or serene forest walks. And there’s always the spa.

Curated Experience

You’ve heard of panning for gold, but what about sapphires? This sparkling pastime is unique to Montana (dubbed “The Treasure State” for a reason). Look for glittering gems ranging from blue to pink to green at the panning station. Strike it lucky, and the resort staff will help you send your stones to be appraised. 

Wine & Unwind: Auberge Du Soleil in Napa Valley, California

Live la vie en rosé a Auberge Du Soleil, a fine-dining restaurant (eating on its iconic patio has been a wine-country bingo square since the 80s) and 50-room hillside hotel that combines Gallic and Golden State vibes and flavors to achieve laidback luxury in the Napa Valley. 

It’s always tranquil at this U.S. adults-only resort — and more so if you opt into the meditation class in the Japanese-inspired pagoda. Bliss out at the spa after hours, with a soak, steam, massage, something sparkling, and something sweet. Relax by your suite’s fireplace and enjoy the deep tub on your private terrace.

Curated Experience

Get lost roaming 33 lavender-scented acres. Wind along sun-dappled nature trails dotted with ancient oaks (some with great views) to the vineyards that line the valley floor and across to the Mayacamas Mountains. Play art critic in the sculpture garden, which features more than 100 pieces by California artists before having charcuterie, cheese, and bubbly delivered to the olive grove for a picnic.

Beach Oasis: Sensei Lanai in Lanai City, Hawaii

Self care is sexy when you ship out to Hawaii’s Pineapple Island and settle into Sensei Lanai, A Four Seasons Resort and wellness center founded by Larry Ellison and celebrity oncologist Dr. David Agus. Your personalized itinerary may include yoga and meditation classes in a lakeside pavilion, couple’s massages, infrared sauna sessions, kettlebells, aquatic bodywork, and golfing on a cliffside course where the Pacific Ocean provides a built-in water hazard. 

Adventurous spirits can opt for a four-mile trek through a pine forest and up Koloiki Ridge to a mesa for views of Maui and Moloka’i. Refuel with Asian-influenced, locally sourced bites sprung from the brilliant culinary mind of Michelin-starred chef Matsuhisa Nobu including roasted Kona lobster or his famous black cod.

Curated Experience

Set sail at sunset around the vibrant red craggy coast and search the surf for playful spinner dolphins while sipping Mai Tais and noshing on pupus.

High-End Glamping: The Green O in Greenough, Montana

Hidden within a dense grove of pine trees at the secluded southern edge of its sister property (high-end glamping leader The Resort at Paws Up), The Green O in Montana offers year-round adrenaline rushes with activities such as rappelling, snowmobiling, ghost-town bike tours, and whitewater rafting as well as a respite in 12 design-forward cabins. 

The only rugged thing about the sleek hygge-inspiring accommodations at this U.S. adults-only resort are the floor-to-ceiling windows from the Tree Haus’ decks elevated more than 20 feet in the air. Each has unique traits that make them special like the Green Haus’ swinging chair and living roof or the deck hot tub at the Light Haus. The Social Haus contains the bar, lounge, and restaurant that’s centered around live-fire cooking and local delicacies like cherries, wild chamomile, and Douglas fir fronds.

Curated Experience 

Take to the big sky and soar over the unspoiled Blackfoot River Valley, meadows, undulating hills, scampering elk herds, babbling brooks, pristine lakes, and evergreen treetops in the basket of a hot-air balloon. If you prefer to stay grounded, arrange instead to snuggle up under the blankets on an enchanting horse-drawn sleigh ride.

Cozy Catskills: The Amelia in Hudson, New York

On a quiet residential street in Hudson — just two hours by train from New York City and three from Boston — The Amelia dazzles with its brilliantly restored, feng shui-ed 19th-century Queen Anne building. With only eight rooms, this quiet adults-only sanctuary features a mahogany fireplace, leaded windows, fresh baked goods daily, a library, Frette towels, Matouk bed linens, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol originals, and a sparkling pool. 

Walk a few blocks to take a peek inside antique shops and art galleries, grab natural wine at Kitty’s Market, or learn to make candles at a Poured Candle Bar workshop.

Curated Experience 

After snacking on s’mores at the fire pit (adorable pre-packed bags are provided), retire to your room to partake in Amelia’s partnership with the trendy sexual wellness brand, Maude, backed by Dakota Johnson. The Staycation kit contains a bottle of its organic personal lubricant and chemical-free condoms. We trust you’ll take it from here.

Unplug in Paradise: Little Palm Island in Little Torch Key, Florida

Although you need a ticket on a boat or seaplane, no passport is required to reach the stunning and serene Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, the only private isle, adults-only resort in the U.S. It’s not quite deserted, but there are never more than 60 castaways checked into the 4.5-acre Florida Keys property’s thatched-roof quarters. 

Crushed seashell paths lead to hidden swaying hammocks, fire pits, coves of turquoise water, and the spa, featuring treatments inspired by Balinese and Thai bodycare rituals. If you can motivate yourself to move out of the outdoor bath, you can join a sunrise yoga class or take out the complimentary kayaks, paddleboards, and Hobie Cats to search the mangroves for seabirds and marine life.

Curated Experience

Set up a toes-in-sand rendezvous under the stars (with lapping waves as the soundtrack) as the chef creates a personally prepared dinner. Return to your bungalow where a romantic, petal-strewn bath awaits.
