Soothe Your Spirit

Refresh your mind and renew your spirit with spa treatments that provide a quiet journey. Many spas offer gardens to enjoy before or after your treatment.

If you've never tried a cedar enzyme bath, you owe it to yourself to sink into this bit of heaven in wooden tubs filled with finely ground cedar, rice bran, and plant enzymes. Arrive early, change into your robe, and have tea in the Japanese garden. The sanctuary's Zen decor inspires meditation in its creek-side sand gardens, and creates the perfect setting for massages in outdoor pagodas amid whispering trees.

One of Wine Country's iconic destinations, the spectacular, state-of-the-art Willow Stream spa spans 40,000-square-feet across a rotunda, 36 treatment rooms, and indoor and outdoor pools.

Guests come from all around the world to experience the baths, fed by the resort's own ancient source of natural thermal waters rich with 24 trace minerals. You can actually feel the earth's healing and relaxation powers flowing from the springs 1,100 feet directly beneath the Inn.

The waters rise at 135 degrees, and are so vital they have to be cooled for guest use. The signature Bathing Ritual is a must and is included with every visit, featuring an exfoliating shower, two mineral water soaking pools, herbal steam, dry sauna, and cool down showers.

The Spa Gourmet

Husband-and-wife team Cindy Scott-Fuchs and Trip Fuchs take spa style on the road. First, they coordinate a location, such as a private, luxury rental home on Dillon Beach or in the Sonoma or Napa mountains. Then they set up a complete spa on-site – often favoring outdoor settings like a mountainside meadow or oceanfront plateau. Cindy customizes treatments, like Thai massage with hot stone therapy, warm foot wrap, and a mini facial of lavender infused steam, herbal cleanser, Indian clay mask and coconut oil massage. Next, Trip, a private chef, cooks a feast, ranging from hors d'oeuvres to a full supper. It's pure relaxation as the couples or small to mid-size groups then enjoy a night in their vacation home, with breakfast the next morning.
