In welcoming of its newest location, guests will receive a complimentary third night after booking two consecutive nights before January 5, 2020. The stay includes lectures, workshops, hikes, creative classes and more.

Set on 16 acres covered in ancient redwoods in Woodside, California, the property provides wellness seekers looking for rejuvenation and restoration with a community-driven, introspective and nature-infused temporary stay.

Reimagined by Cole Martinez Curtis & Associates, the property features 14 rooms in the main lodge and 24 stand alone tree houses on stilts among the redwoods. Each room has a private balcony.

Additionally, the property also features wrap around decks, an outdoor labyrinth to gardens and an outdoor obstacle course, as well as a collection of artwork, including Bruce Johnson’s sculpture THE VOID, which is made from salvaged old growth redwood.

The Recharge program focuses on self-care and building resilience and participants will challenge their physical abilities, as well as gain tools for living healthier and longer lives.

The Connect program focuses on mindfulness, disconnecting and immersing oneself in nature in order to calm one’s spirits and reconnect with place, person and self.

Wellness services

The resort also features a collection of spa, fitness and mind-body services.

Offering traditional, alternative and modern therapies, the spa is comprised of five treatment rooms, an indoor saline pool and whirlpool and a fitness studio, called The Training Zone.
