You'll Have the Most Relaxing Time at This Pennsylvania Luxury Spa Resort and Healing Center


Hidden away in a quiet corner of the Poconos, The Lodge at Woodloch is equal parts luxury spa resort, New Age healing center, outdoor-adventure mecca, and farm-to-table foodie destination. (Trust us: It works.) Guest rooms are luxe, with Frette linens, walk-in showers, and balconies overlooking the healing garden. Spa treatments are decadent (the Deep Forest Ritual package is a must); meals at the Tree restaurant are inventive and locally sourced; and the attentive service provides just the right amount of pampering.

But where Woodloch really shines is its roster of mind-body programming and outdoor pursuits aimed at introspective growth and reflection. A day’s itinerary could include yoga and tai chi, a painting class, an aromatherapy demonstration, and a lecture on feng shui.

Archery lessons, kayaking on the property’s 15-acre lake, and hiking or biking the nature trails are more vigorous possibilities. A tour of the vegetable gardens and a chat with the resident beekeeper will satisfy organic-food enthusiasts. Or, rediscover your Zen, soaking in the aqua garden (outdoor hot tub and lounge area, plus indoor pool), swaying in a hammock, or relaxing around the outdoor fire circle.

The spirit of serenity and meaningful reflection is contagious; at Woodloch, it’s easy to embrace the idea of artful lounging as a pathway to personal awakening. (Plus, it’s fun to wander the property in your spa robe without judgment.) Ultimately, the chance to recharge the soul may be the best thing about your stay.
