BEST RETREATS TO RECOVER AFTER THE COACHELLA VALLEY MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL
Music, parties, fashion, and fun – that sums up the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. For some, it’s two consecutive weekends of excess and overindulgence, followed by a much needed detoxification.
The annual Southern California festival gets its fair share of millennials making the most of their time hopping from one performance to another and partying along the way. The three-day, two weekend festival is enough to exhaust anyone.
So, if you’re attending Coachella Festival this year, consider recovering right where you are – the Coachella Valley. Some of the best health and wellness retreats are right there and they offer a great post-festival renewal of the mind and body. Check out some of the programs and places to recharge:
You might have heard of this detoxifying retreat in Desert Hot Springs, just minutes away from the Coachella Valley Music Festival. One of its claims to fame is its A-list celebrity clientele. But, there is so much more. This holistic health spa and retreat focuses on education, treatments, and enhancement of the overall mind and body with the help of juices, fasting, colonics, and other transformational treatments. The 60-acre desert hideaway offers three-, six-, and eight-day packages. Prices depend on the month you visit and the type of room you choose. But, the six-day program might be the perfect post-Coachella Valley Music Festival treatment.
Vida Cleanse is a program that is meant to kick-start your rejuvenation process. After a little debauchery, you can get back on track by starting on the Vida Cleanse treatment by juicing and fasting. Through its five and seven day cleanses, it claims to help you lose weight and eliminate solid food for a short period of time. Vida Cleanse offers its three-, five-, or seven-day retreats only seven months out of the year at the nearby THE SPRING Resort . Prices for the rooms vary depending on single or double occupancy.
This award-winning spa offers a lineup of services. Manicures, massages, facials, and special health programs that offer cleanses are on the menu at THE SPRING. This boutique resort hotel hosts three-to five-day juice and fasting retreat programs and day spa packages. Choose from two health programs that include: the Blue Print Cleanse and the Vida Cleanse or a series of spa packages which include massages. Prices depend on the month of the year you visit and size of the hotel room you choose. One of the great things about THE SPRING is the ability to take advantage of its Coachella Cleanse treatment, which includes an aromatherapy massage, juices delivered to your room daily, and two sessions of colon hydrotherapy.
This desert retreat bills itself as the oldest hot mineral springs resort in the country, the first carbon neutral resort in America, and the first sustainable wellness resort in North America. Two Bunch offers a day spa featuring world-class treatments in a “whisper only” environment on 77-acres. It also offers gourmet farm-to-table cuisine meant to boost your body’s overall health. Options include daily healing spa treatments and movement, fitness, and enrichment classes. Like the other facilities, prices depend on the type of service and duration of your stay. One other thing to remember with Two Bunch Palms is that it only allows guests 18 and over access to the property.
