Opposites Attract

Two unlikely destinations for wellness—Napa Valley and Las Vegas—debut havens of health.

Sometimes, it’s tough to visit a destination and look beyond its obvious charms and draws. Heading to a gorgeous idyllic island with powder-sand beaches? Spending an afternoon at an indoor cooking class can feel like a chore.

When it comes to regions like Napa Valley and Las Vegas, it might seem impossible to pull yourself away from the wine tastings, the bevvy of Thomas Keller dining options, the Michelin-starred restaurants, the cocktail bars—the temptations to indulge are abundant. Using your precious vacation time to focus on anything that might require some discipline might end up feeling like work.

However, two recent openings have made it easier than ever to add some balance to your trip. In Napa Valley, Stanly Ranch debuted last year just south of Yountville, on 700 acres that include 135 guest rooms and a one-acre health and wellness compound with dedicated spaces for movement, medical, spa, and recovery. Beyond classic bodywork and massages, there are treatments for myofascial therapy and to target pain in common areas that typically get ignored in massages like the knees, ankles, and toes. Treatments can also begin or end with the Springhouse Circuit, a dedicated coed recovery space with heat, cold, steam, and micro salts, all of which help with detoxification and recovery, whether you need it as a result of an aggressive mountain-biking ride or from actively exploring surrounding wineries.

Beyond spa therapies, there’s also a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to repair tissue, daily fitness classes and personal training, and immersive wellness days, such as the forthcoming The Class Retreatment on March 11. The daylong retreat combines the mat-based workout from The Class and its certified instructors with mental and emotional elements.

If you’re heading to Las Vegas for anything from a bachelor party to a convention—or a family getaway to see Awakening—new programming at The Encore makes self-care easier than ever to squeeze in. Partnering with TB12, the health and wellness company started by Tom Brady and his longtime body coach Alex Guerrero, The Encore now offers both guests and non-guests the opportunity to achieve optimal athletic training. The dedicated space within The Encore’s fitness center is the West Coast debut for the brand and allows guests to partake in one-on-one sessions with TB12 body coaches for a personalized, holistic approach to improving daily habits for nutrition, muscle recovery, injury prevention, and physical performance.

Additionally, The Encore’s sister property just debuted its Wynn Living Well program, which aims to offer guests tailored experiences to help renew, replenish, and reenergize. The wellness initiatives follow the Wynn’s newly renovated guest rooms and reimagined 45,000-square-foot spa.
