Wellness industry leader Canyon Ranch has opened a new signature concept, and its retreat in California, Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreat – Woodside.
Set on 6.5 hectares covered in ancient redwoods in Woodside, the retreat provides wellness seekers looking for rejuvenation and restoration with community-driven, introspective, and nature-infused sojourns that complement the transformative offerings.
“The opening of our first property in California is a significant milestone in the ongoing evolution of our storied brand,” said John Goff, Chairman of Canyon Ranch. “This new concept distills our approach to integrative wellness into curated, goal-focused experiences with tools to empower our guests. Travellers today seek shorter, more frequent, and highly experiential trips and launching Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreats offers guests familiar with our brand – as well as those new to Canyon Ranch – an intentional, collective reset that embodies our philosophy,” he added.
Recharge and Connect
Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreat – Woodside offers two Signature Retreat programs, as well as a series of Guest Speaker Retreats led by a curated selection of expert guests. Signature Retreats include RECHARGE, where guests will focus on self-care and building resilience. Participants will challenge their physical abilities throughout their stay, while gaining the tools to live healthier and longer. CONNECT invites guests to mindfully disconnect, immerse themselves in nature, calm their spirits, and deeply reconnect with place, person, and self. Rates for Signature Retreats start from US$899 per person per night.
Wellness at Woodside
A collection of spa, fitness, and mind-body services will further guests’ purpose during their stay. The spa will offer traditional, alternative, and modern therapies, including Canyon Ranch favourites and new signature treatments inspired by the redwood forest setting.
The spa is comprised of five treatment rooms, an indoor saline pool and whirlpool, and a fitness studio called The Training Zone, which opens to forest views. Guests will have the ability to select from daily fitness classes, meditation sessions, nature walks, creative expression courses, wellness talks, and more.
Destination excursions will provide unprecedented access to the surrounding region and partners. Guests can enjoy guided mountain biking and hiking trips on some of the world’s best trails, intimate Equus coaching sessions, personalised vineyard and farm tours, and exclusive access to the region’s arts community. Private consultations, testing and assessments with nutritionists, physiologists, spiritual wellness providers and coaches will also be available to allow for a more tailored experience.
Formerly Stillheart Institute, the revitalised property features 14 rooms in the main lodge and 24 rooms in standalone luxury treehouses, which are elevated on stilts and immersed among the towering redwoods.
Canyon Ranch also operates two resorts in the United States in Tuscon, Arizona and Lenox, Massachusetts, along with spa and fitness centres in Las Vegas and on the sea with multiple cruise lines.
To welcome Canyon Ranch to its new home in California, guests will receive a complimentary third night after booking two consecutive nights. The stay must be booked before 5 January, 2020, and includes all retreat programming, such as lectures, workshops, hikes, creative classes, and more.
