Canyon Ranch opens retreat property in California redwoods

by Jane Kitchen | 13 Nov 2019

Destination spa Canyon Ranch has opened its first retreat model, Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreat – Woodside, set on 16 acres of ancient redwood forest in California, US. The property is designed as a “true retreat to nature” that will offer an inspiring landscape for self-reflection, along with community-driven, introspective, and nature-infused sojourns designed to complement the offerings found at Canyon Ranch Wellness Resorts.

“The opening of our first property in California is a significant milestone in the ongoing evolution of our storied brand,” said John Goff, chair of Canyon Ranch. “This new concept distills our approach to integrative wellness into curated, goal-focused experiences with tools to empower our guests. Travellers today seek shorter, more frequent, and highly experiential trips, and launching Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreats offers guests familiar with our brand – as well as those new to Canyon Ranch – an intentional, collective reset that embodies our philosophy.”

Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreat – Woodside offers two Signature Retreat programs, as well as a series of Guest Speaker Retreats led by a curated selection of expert guests. Signature Retreats include Recharge, where guests will focus on self-care and building resilience and challenge their physical abilities, while gaining tools to live healthier, longer lives.

The Connect retreat invites guests to mindfully disconnect, immerse themselves in nature, calm their spirits, and deeply reconnect with place, person, and self. Rates for Signature Retreats start from US$899 per person per night.

A collection of spa, fitness, and mind-body services are also featured at the California location. The spa will offer traditional, alternative, and modern therapies, including Canyon Ranch favourites as well as new signature treatments inspired by the redwood forest setting.

The spa is comprised of five treatment rooms, an indoor saline pool and whirlpool, and a fitness studio called The Training Zone, which opens to forest views. Guests can select from daily fitness classes, meditation sessions, nature walks, creative expression courses, wellness talks, and more.

Destination excursions will provide access to the surrounding region, and guests can enjoy guided mountain biking and hiking trips, Equus coaching sessions, personalised vineyard and farm tours, and access to the region’s arts community.

Private consultations, testing, and assessments with nutritionists, physiologists, spiritual wellness providers, and coaches will also be available.

Formerly Stillheart Institute, Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreat – Woodside has been reimagined by Cole Martinez Curtis & Associates. The new aesthetic embraces the surrounding natural beauty and is designed to foster connectivity with the outdoors and lead to a deeper sense of place. The property features 14 bedrooms in the main lodge and 24 bedrooms in standalone luxury treehouses, which are elevated on stilts and immersed amongst the giant redwoods.

The cuisine will be focused around a daily rotating menu of consciously sourced and prepared, plant-forward, market-driven California cuisine with international touches at The Hearth, which features communal seating in an elevated environment surrounded by nature. The Hideaway, the first bar and lounge for Canyon Ranch, is connected to The Hearth and offers sommelier-selected natural, biodynamic, and organic wines, beers, and ciders, as well as a menu of cocktails featuring low-proof spirits balanced with market fresh ingredients. Cold-pressed juices, house-made tonics, and superfood elixirs are also available.
