Leisurely weekend mornings spent sipping coffee and turning the pages of a book. Evening sunsets accompanied by the soundtrack of soft music. Cozy winter days filled with movies, sewing, assembling puzzles, and baking. Aaah … Doesn’t it feel good to just RELAX?
Sometimes vacation is for doing: rising early in the morning, filling your days with activities, and immersing yourself in your destination. But sometimes vacation is for doing nothing—passing your time without a care in the world, having nowhere to be, surrounded by beautiful scenery.
If your mind, body, and spirit crave the ultimate do-nothing vacation, these 4 relaxing resorts provide the perfect backdrop for slowing down.
Dunton Hot Springs
Nestled on a mile-long stretch of the Dolores River near the “Four Corners” in southwest Colorado, the rustic charm of the cabins at Dunton Hot Springs harken back to an earlier time of slow, peaceful days. Many of the cabins were built by miners in 1885 and lovingly restored by the town’s new owners over seven years. The camp provides a perfect home base for exploring the area with customized tours, or travelers can simply relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery while soaking in the restorative hot springs.
Fifty acres of lush landscaping surrounded by a river, salt marshes, and the sea, private-yet-welcoming Sea Island is a lovely location with legendary accommodations, The Cloister. Visitors may choose between three distinct settings: the main building and wings, the beach club, or the ocean residences. Relaxing spa days and leisurely strolls on the beach make for a luxurious, low-key vacation, but those seeking a bit of adventure can participate in one of the resort’s many activities.
The Inn at Entrada
This small luxury resort in St. George, Utah sits against the stark beauty of the desert red rocks. It caters to travelers wishing to relax and enjoy the surrounding vistas while floating in the swimming pool or meditating in the resort’s dedicated space. Enjoy morning coffee with a view from one of the spacious guest suites, and snuggle under a blanket in front of the fireplace to end a perfect a vacation day.
Palmaia: The House of AIA
A secluded retreat in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, Palmaia celebrates and embraces serenity and a calming of the spirit. The tranquil oceanfront suites, jungle landscaping, and plethora of relaxing spa services and activities allow for reconnecting and unwinding. Exquisitely prepared cuisine and abundant plant-based options nourish the body and soul. Separate from the adult area, Palmaia’s separate family section stresses the importance of the family unit, offering special kid-friendly décor and bunk beds, a Waldorf-inspired children’s activity space, and a small aqua play area.
