February hits us like we haven’t seen the sun in 10 years. That part of winter when enough is enough. You dream about warmer weather, sand beneath your toes and BBQ-ing outside.

Lucky for us Sporteluxe put together a list of some amazing destinations from around the world that could change your life forever.
Pick your favorite and book your stay so you can rest, relax, recover, and come back to 2017 totally rejuvenated.
Ananda In the Himalayas, India
Situated high on a hill overlooking the ancient spiritual city of Rishikesh, Ananda In the Himalayas is India’s ultimate wellness destination. Combining Eastern and Western healing techniques, the resort treats guests to an Ayurvedic-inspired restorative vacation. Spend your days there doing yoga by the pool, walking through the 100-acre forest surrounding the estate … or getting hours of massage and aromatherapy treatments.
La Blanc Spa Resort, Cancun
Cancun, Mexico, is typically associated with spring breakers and a rowdy nightlife scene—not quiet, restorative escapes. But one stay at the Le Blanc Resort and Spa will instantly reverse your opinion of the beachside city. The all-white hotel is absolutely Instagram-worthy, but the big draw is the hotel spa that offers hydrotherapy and massage appointments.
The Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur
Big Sur is a magical little area of the California coastline that any self-respecting nature lover needs to take the time to visit. Once a favorite getaway of the stars of the Hollywood Golden Age, the coastal area of Big Sur is remote and ultra-relaxing. The Post Ranch Innsits directly above the water, partially hidden by gargantuan Redwood trees. Every eco-friendly room is TV-free … but they all have free mini-bars, and most have indoor or outdoor private spas. As a guest, you’ll have access to complimentary yoga, meditation, and star-gazing classes, and have plenty of time to hike amongst the Redwoods and the rocky shore.
Asclepios Wellness & Healing Retreat, Costa Rica
Time to renew your passport and book your tickets—Asclepios Wellness & Healing Retreat is the perfect place to rediscover those New Year’s resolutions that you might have lost sight of in the past month or so. Pick from any of Asclepios’ one- to three-week programs, all with tempting titles like “Purifying Journey,” “Anti-Stress Escape,” and “Revitalize and Rejuvenate,” to see results.
Canyon Ranch, Tucson
The OG of wellness retreats, Canyon Ranch is part exercise camp, part spa, part hippie retreat. Eastern and Western practices join forces here to help guests detoxify their bodies and reach their wellness goals.
The Ranch, Malibu
Live in LA and need some time to chill out, but don’t want to go far? Book a stay nearby at The Ranch Malibu for an all-inclusive wellness weekend. Eat clean food, take a digital detox, and hike the sunny Santa Monica Mountains to take a breather from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The Oaks at Ojai; Ojai, California
“It’s not just what you lose, it’s what you gain.” That’s the tagline of The Oaks at Ojai Spa, an all-inclusive resort located just south of Santa Barbara in Ojai Valley. Wellness, mindfulness, and authenticity are the focuses of the practitioners at The Oaks—the program isn’t all about getting in shape or losing weight, it’s more about improving holistic health.
Puyuahuapi Spa and Resort, Chile
A resort built right on the coast of Chilean Patagonia, the Puyuahuapi Spa and Resort is perfect for nature lovers who like to sleep on clean, crisp sheets in on a comfy mattress. It’s completely gorgeous—and actually incredibly affordable.
Miraval Resort, Arizona
Where purpose meets imagination, Miraval isn’t just a health and wellness retreat—it’s a place to go for a fresh start, to find inspiration, and to begin your wellness journey. Enjoy the pleasures of the American Southwest with regular horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking while you enjoy healthy, delicious food prepared by world-class chefs.
