Shou Sugi Ban House is a beautifully balanced zen oasis in the middle of the Hamptons. The 13-room retreat has a Japanese-inspired focus on intuitive wellness and nature, and self-care options include everything from craniosacral therapy and hydrotherapy to sound baths, body wraps, shamanic healing, yoga and laps in the salt pool. Meals developed by Michelin-starred chef Mads Refslund are locally sourced and plant-based (and alcohol-free). There are no TVs in the serene guest studios, just space for contemplation. Rooms from $1,100 (single occupancy); Shou Sugi Ban House

Troutbeck

The former estate of poet-naturalist and farmer Myron B. Benton, Troutbeck has played host to Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. The historic Tudor manor is set on 250 leafy acres in Dutchess County, with a pool, tennis courts and opportunities for fly fishing and nearby horseback riding. Last year, the hotel unveiled the Barns, an airy movement studio and spa offering fitness classes, yoga, meditation, Kinesoma, acupuncture and massage. Want to brush up on your Benton? Peruse his verse in a riverside hammock. Rooms from $240; Troutbeck


NEMACOLIN; FARMINGTON, PENN.

Nemacolin

Nemacolin

If Nemacolin’s opulent Chateau looks familiar, it’s because this season of “The Bachelor” was filmed entirely at the Versailles-esque resort that’s located 90 minutes outside Pittsburgh. There’s much to do at the palatial property, from paintball, zip-lining, Jeep off-roading and more, but the Holistic Healing Center and the Woodlands Spa and Salon are its crowning glories. Treat yourself like a queen with the latest modalities — float therapy, whole-body cryo, infrared sauna and red-light therapy — or energy-centering practices like acupuncture and Thai poultices. Rooms from $599; Nemacolin


Hutton Brickyards

Hutton Brickyards

Like a next-level summer camp for adults, Hutton Brickyards has everything from an archery range and a croquet lawn to live concerts. The bucolic campus on the Hudson reopened this month after a major renovation and the addition of spa sheds providing massages and facials, and two glass-fronted saunas. Its chic new cabins are appointed with luxury linens, apothecary bath products and requisite tech. Chef Dan Silverman (previously of Balthazar and Minetta Tavern) leads the new open-air restaurant, the River Pavilion, which serves wood-fired fare. Bring your own bug juice. Rooms from $275; Hutton Brickyards

A Glenmere Mansion getaway is the Hudson Valley’s answer to a Tuscan villa idyll. The magnificent Italianate manor, set on 150 rolling acres overlooking Glenmere Lake, has richly decorated rooms, notably fine food, romantic gardens (the site of many proposals) and an immaculate spa with a full menu and a Duet suite for two. Fans describe the massages (choose from six types) as “sublime.” When the Carrara marble-lined hammam reopens, hopefully later this spring, the cleansing and purifying rituals are not to be missed.
