Ranked as one of the 10 Best Boutique Hotel Spas in the World by SpaFinder last year, Sundara is The. Best. Spa. Ever. Not that we're the connoisseurs of the spa experience by any means, but it doesn't get much better than the likes of this wondrous space in the middle of fresh and fragrant pines.
Echoing the lofty and all too familiar promise of "where you can truly be yourself," Sundara actually delivers. With no cell phones, no smoking (thank god) anywhere within in it's wilderness boarders, a too soft for words robe, and fresh water, snacks and tea, you seriously could spend the whole day there.... and you can. Just in for a quick pedi? No worry, you can lounge at the infinity pool or indulge in the purifying bath ritual all day. The whole spa is under some magical aromatherapy. Even the towels smell nice. How do we know? After a little retail therapy we headed out for a day, complete with one lavender and citrus hot stone massage.
Did we mention it's adult only, the chef has his own garden on the premises, and all the spa ingredients are indigenous to the area? The perfect way to start the week if we don't say so ourselves. If you live anywhere in the midwest, you've got to check it out. Wish I had more pictures inside, but here, people actually power down!
How was your Monday?
