The COMO Shambhala Retreat spa is known for its holistic approach to vacation de-stressing, combining elements from the ancient Indian tradition of Ayurveda with Asian-inspired treatments such as Thai massage. The resort is located on 1,000 beachfront acres, where garden, oceanfront, and villa rooms welcome you with sleek Balinese furniture, white cotton linens, and natural wood accents. Bonus: Complimentary yoga and Pilates classes six days a week.
- Rates start at $550; 866-388-0036 or parrotcay.com.
Rest: A small pavilion built over the island’s amusingly named Boiling Hole wetlands is the best spot for light yoga, meditation, or just relaxed, solitary musing.
Relax: In the Stress Management program (from $3,312, including accommodations, meals, airport transfers, and tax), consultants build a system of therapies, outdoor activities, and well-being lectures that help you feel more balanced and rested.
Revive: Enjoy a delicious plate of organic chicken and herb-packed tabbouleh from the spa menu, which emphasizes organic foods prepared with little salt.
