When the winter weather and early sunsets have you feeling a little sad with Seasonal Affective Disorder, planning a wellness retreat can be a good way to perk up.


Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa

If Arizona is the mecca of health and wellness retreats, consider Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa the ultimate cure for winter blues. Use the great outdoors as your jungle gym and connect with nature through swimming, hiking and biking through the stunning Arizona desert. Get an extra dose with Sanctuary Spa’s Vita D Brightening Facial, offering vitamin D to wake your skin up from the cold, sunless winter (starting at $189 for 60 minutes). Another option is the soul connect treatment, incorporating guided meditation, chakra balancing, massage and energy work (starting at $269 for 90 minutes).


Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa 

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.


Pebble Beach Resorts 

California famously lures locals and tourists for its restorative spas and retreats, and Pebble Beach Resort’s Winter Stay & Play is a tough one to ignore. The promotion is available through March 31, and includes two-night accommodations, two rounds of golf (one at Pebble Beach Golf Links and one at The Links at Spanish Bay or Spyglass Hill) and a $100 resort credit. Guests can use their credit toward a sea salt body scrub ($180 for 45 minutes), which combines mineral-rich sea salts with aromatherapy oils to exfoliate and soften the skin. Let the oils uplift your mood and reinvigorate your skin’s natural glow. The Winter Stay & Play offer begins at $2,445 for The Inn at Spanish Bay, and $2,845 for The Lodge at Pebble Beach.
