If Arizona is the mecca of health and wellness retreats, consider Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa the ultimate cure for winter blues.

Another option is the soul connect treatment, incorporating guided meditation, chakra balancing, massage and energy work (starting at $269 for 90 minutes).
Over in Florida, Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa guests can also soak up some vitamin D while resting by the pool or lounging on the resort’s private beach. Upgrade your skincare routine at SiSpa with a 50- or 80-minute Bubbles and Gold treatment for $215 and $335, respectively. The service is available through January and includes Si Of Youth Oxygen Infusion Facial to rebalance and restore skin cells and a 24K Gold Face Masque to improve blood flow and skin renewal with antioxidants and minerals.
