The new year calls for reflection and goal-setting—but what about building in some more self-care time too? At these Wisconsin destination spas, you can up your pampering game.
As one of the state’s few lakefront spas, not only can you get some serious self-care at this but you can snag a scenic view from some of the treatment rooms, too. Located in the luxe Edgewater hotel in Madison, this soothing spa offers manicures, pedicures, facials, body treatments and massages. Tranquil hues of blues and neutrals echo the peaceful vibe, and guests can spend the whole day here and use the warm relaxation pool, take a yoga class through the Wellness Center or even schedule a haircut and color service at the salon. The Spa has monthly specials too—like January’s targeted cellulite treatment and massage or facial paired with manicure and complimentary glass of champagne.
The state’s signature destination spa in Wisconsin Dells is a must-visit for a true decompressing escape. Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler have also heaped accolades on Sundara, whose interior is fashioned to reflect the surrounding Baraboo Hills and 80-acre pine forest. A massive indoor/outdoor saltwater pool, swim-up bar, hot soak pools, outdoor patios, nature trails and various treatments rooms complement the stunning array of amenities here. This sanctuary is also electronics-free for the ultimate escape.
The luxurious Kohler brand recently expanded its spa portfolio from its original Kohler Waters Spa in Kohler to open another location in Lodge Kohler in Green Bay’s Titletown district. Expect the same high-end treatments and facilities, with a focus on hydrotherapy (water treatments done with Vichy showers) and relaxing, sensory experiences. The spas also offer monthly specials and limited-time services throughout the year.
Located across the street from the Heidel House Resort on Green Lake, Evensong is designed to relax and rejuvenate its guests. The spa’s seasonally-focused treatments tout ingredients that sound good enough to eat (bourbon butter scrub or honey lavender salt glow, anyone?). Guests are also treated to a robe and slippers upon arrival and are encouraged to explore the meditation labyrinth (a circular path that encourages thoughtfulness), waterfall whirlpools, steam rooms, luxury relaxation room and the Spa Café. Each January is Wellness Month at Evensong, where spa-goers can take complimentary body classes, healthy living workshops and special spa treatments.
