1. Places We Want to Play: 4 Winter Wellness Getaways

    Between the cold weather and the gray skies, it’s hard to avoid the winter blues. But instead of spending the next few months bundled up indoors, take advantage of this time of year to hit reset at a wellness retreat or resort. Not sure where to start? A few of our favorites are below.

    Canyon Ranch

    Located in the Berkshires in Lenox in Massachusetts, Canyon Ranch is an all-inclusive retreat that features wellness activities (from yoga to snowshoeing), locally sourced meals, and a full-service spa. 

    The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa

    If wellness for you means outdoor adventure, head to the Equinox Golf Resort & Spa in Manchester, Vermont. With daily winter activities like cross country skiing, dog sledding and snowshoeing and a luxe spa to relax in afterwards, this resort has it all.

    The Lodge at Woodloch

    Escape to the Poconos and check yourself in at The Lodge at Woodloch. This all-inclusive destination spa offers 35 classes per day covering everything from forest bathing to meditation to wine tastings. And of course, there’s a spa.

    Retreat Hotel at The Blue Lagoon

    For a true winter retreat, head to Iceland and book a stay at The Retreat Hotel at the Blue Lagoon. Complete with a subterranean spa, geothermal pools and fine dining. You won’t want to leave this magical place.

  2. Workouts for When the Temp Drops


    With the temps starting to drop, it’s time to switch up your workout routine. Trade the course or the court for something a little cozier. Here are three workouts we’ll be trying:

    The Mirror


    For days when you really don’t want to head outside, there’s Mirror. You can stream classes on-demand with top instructors (like Tracy Anderson) and it looks good hanging on your wall. 



    Not exactly a workout per se, but a sweat session at HigherDOSE does the body good. Step into one of their infrared saunas when the cold starts to get to you and you’ll leave feeling warmed to the core (and maybe just a little bit lighter)!

    The Ness


    Meet the trampoline cardio class you never knew you needed. At The Ness, you’ll jump, bounce and sculpt your muscles in this upbeat 50 minute class.

  3. Places We Want to Play: Pools With a View

    Forget room with a view, this summer it’s all about a pool with a view. From Lake Como to Jackson Hole, we’ve put together a list of the pools we’re dreaming of taking a dip in this summer. Don’t forget to pack a swimsuit! 

    Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

    Located on the 57th floor of the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore, this infinity pool provides a hard-to-beat view of the city below. But those who don’t do well with heights might want to stay in the lobby...

    Bondi Icebergs Club Pool, Sydney, Australia

    This saltwater pool was a Sydney icon long before the days of Instagram. Get ready to swim laps while you take in the view of Bondi Bay. 

    Snake River Sporting Club, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

    With views of Snake River Canyon and Bridger-Teton National Forest, the infinity pool at Snake River Sporting Club is the perfect place to relax after a round of golf or tennis match.

    Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como, Italy

    At the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como is front and center. A dip in the pool here will have you surrounded (literally) by the lake and gorgeous views of the Alps. 

    Song Saa, Cambodia

    A private villa on a private island, with a private pool? Count us in.
