Meet the New Wellness Concierges
Curating a health-promoting travel experience just got that much easier.
Concierges are nothing new to the hotel industry. Elite travelers have come to expect these facilitators, relying upon their in-the-know recommendations and hard-to-get restaurant reservations. But as travelers place a higher premium on wellness, refusing to leave their fitness regimens at home, the hospitality world has responded with a new breed of concierge. Sure, you can still get help with those dinner bookings, but where do you go for that perfect spiritual reading or health coaching session? The pros at these seven resorts specialize in just that.
Spa Concierge at Montage Laguna Beach and Montage Deer Valley
The spa's menu of options can overwhelm. Here, a consultant meets with you one-on-one to prescribe a wellness program for the duration of your stay. Services range from boot camp classes and caviar facials to a juice cleanse and Seven Flower ritual, all depending on whether you're looking to indulge, energize, or reconnect.
Soul Reader at Spring Creek Ranch Jackson Hole
Guests have the option to meet with the onsite soul reader, Carol Mann, who can "reveal the blueprint of your soul." The one-hour session touches on figuring out your natural talents, how you can best contribute to the world, and what best nourishes your soul. All meetings are recorded so you can reflect back on what you've learned long after your stay.
Bike Concierge at Viceroy Santa Monica
Although local culture love-hates driving, the Viceroy encourages guests to travel by bike; the hotel provides an onsite expert who creates a customized route based on your preferences. Venture off to along the Pacific Ocean to spots like Venice Beach with a complimentary beach cruiser where healthy eats can be suggested along the way.
Health Coach at Allegria Spa at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek
At this mountainside retreat, certified health coach Angela Gaffney works to figure out what's preventing you from reaching your health goals and takes the first steps to create a plan to increase your energy, lose weight, or simply live a life of joy. Bonus: she also runs yoga and wellness classes onsite.
Vitality Guide at Swissotel Chicago
The culture in Switzerland is centered on hiking in the Alps, eating organic foods, and staying in shape. To bring an element of that mindset to the States, the hotel chain introduced their Vitality Guide. Curated by Alpinist and travel writer John Harlin, you'll be given a comprehensive guide to sightseeing on foot to maintain both your health and sense of exploration.
Ski Concierge at Westgate Park City
The full service ski concierge at this Utah resort makes hitting the slopes as easy as possible by prepping your ski equipment, handling rentals, and suggesting the best trails per your ability; they'll even bring food to you on the top of the mountain.
