So what happens when the holidays are over and it’s time to repent for the New Year? We have a plan and there’s good news: It doesn’t include a whole month of not drinking or juice cleansing — it’s actually as simple as getting away for a few days to renew and recover. Luckily we found seven spots to do just that, so don’t stress about how you’re going to detox — book one of these amazing options for a physical, mental and spiritual reset and prep yourself for what is, inevitably, the February retox.
The Coast Ridge
San Francisco, CA
+1 415 654 2554
Jumpstart your metabolism with a 4-day hiking and health retreat located in a luxurious private estate just outside of San Francisco in Stinson Beach. You’ll give up alcohol, caffeine, gluten, dairy, meat, sugar – and all tech devices. You’ll replace them with sunrise yoga, 4-5 hour hikes along coastal trails, afternoon strength classes and then more yoga. Daily restoring massages and a delicious whole food, plant-based diet complete the package.
Located at a private home in Great Barrington, MA and at the Kemble Inn in Lenox, MA
+1 646 245 3465
A luxe fitness-focused retreat in the Berkshires that offers 3-day weekend and 4-day mid-week retreats. Not as stringent as some hard-core detox retreats (yes to caffeine and technological devices!) but still follows the boot camp philosophy of early morning yoga, grueling hikes, and small, healthy meals. Evening activities include options like crystal chakra therapy and acupuncture.

+1 844 993 9518

Nestled in a canyon in the spiritual mecca of Sedona, Arizona you can explore traditional Native American therapies, recharge your chakras, or hike to the famed energy vortexes (there are only a few places in the world where these vortexes exist and Sedona is one). They offer 3, 4, and 7-night packages.
