Canyon Ranch: Discover Bliss, Four Ways

With my crazy fall agenda well underway, dreams of a blissful vacay have been creeping into my train of thought. Lucky for me, our Canyon Ranch Boutique is making my “to go, or not to go?” vacation debate a total “go.” From East Coast to West Coast and warm climates to brisk ones, there is a rejuvenating experience waiting in four equally gorgeous locations. How can all of this be yours, you ask? Just enter the sweeps online to win a three-night stay at the Tucson, AZ location, and read on for top picks.

Canyon Ranch, Lenox: Fitness Pick
Located in the heart of New England, this resort offers an exceptional amount of room for outdoor exploration among the firey fall landscape. But, the real winner? The 100,000-square foot Spa complex complete with cardio and weight rooms, dance and yoga studios, indoor tennis courts and a running track, pools, saunas, and more. Now this is a fitness haven if I ever did see one.

Canyon Ranch, Tucson: Adventure Pick
The beautiful, picturesque region of Southern Arizona is the perfect playground for outdoor adventure. From hiking and biking to the High Ropes Challenge Course, Aerial Adventure, and the Climbing Wall, this particular resort is the perfect spot to take in the fresh air while getting a workout. And the beautiful vistas aren’t bad exercise inspiration either.

Canyon Ranch, Miami: Dining Pick
Known for its Latin influences and flavors, Miami just seems like the perfect place to indulge. Dine beside the surf with sweeping ocean views at Canyon Ranch Grill™ or at the Carillon Café for casual meals and tapas, or to enjoy cocktails and attend wine or tea tastings. Visit the Cabana where you can enjoy a light, healthy meal, refreshing fruit juices, cooling smoothies, and organic mixed drinks.

Canyon Ranch SpaClub® in Las Vegas: Spa Pick
An obvious choice for spa bliss, the award-winning Canyon Ranch SpaClub® at The Venetian® and The Palazzo® provides the perfect atmosphere for unwinding in ultimate luxury. The expansive 134,000-square-foot spa features more than 120 services and activities.

Our Canyon Ranch Boutique opens Tuesday, October 9, at 11AM ET.
