Stein Eriksen Lodge

Rejuvenation is taken to a new level at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah.

 

Your clients just want to get away—who can’t relate to that? Send them somewhere where they can relax and rejuvenate in the utmost of luxury.

Kenwood Inn & Spa, Sonoma Valley, CA
The Sonoma Valley, CA, adults-only haven known as Kenwood Inn & Spa is surrounded by vineyards, oak groves and fruit trees. Its very location is embedded in nature and tranquility.

Which means, of course, that it would be an excellent spot for a relaxing vacation. Each of its 29 guestrooms and suites feature featherbeds, Italian linens, luxurious robes, fireplaces and complimentary breakfast each morning—an assortment of fresh squeezed juices, homemade granola and pastries, local organic yogurt, fresh fruit and a daily chef’s feature, cooked to order.

Here, not even TVs are allowed to disturb guests as they find their inner peace. Instead, visitors meander through flowered courtyards and indulge in the many offerings at The Spa at Kenwood. The spa, named one of the top luxury spas in the country by Conde Nast Traveler, features vinotherapy wraps and scrubs—a testament to its wine-country location—oxygen treatments, iS Clinical facials and a range of therapeutic massages.

For their visit, have clients consider the Bella Vita package, which provides 2-night accommodations in the room of their choice, with lunch for two created by the property’s executive chef and two 50-minute body treatments for each guest (for a total of four treatments). Additional spa treatments are available, starting at $275 for a 1.5-hour treatment.

The 2-night Bella Vita package is available for booking through Dec. 31, with rates starting at $1,110. For more information, call (800) 353-6966 or visit kenwoodinn.com.
