#1 Destination Spa
The awe-inspiring bluff-top setting overlooking the Pacific is enough to make you never want to leave. Add the five-star service and relaxed yet luxurious ambiance, and this resort is a slam dunk for the ultimate spa-away-from-home. Splurge on the pricey three-night Surrender Retreat and you get two hours each of spa services and personal training a day. Fortunately, a flexible schedule leaves time for beach boot camp, hip-hop yoga classes, kayaking, a Thalassic Beach Walk (a fast-paced stroll through deep sand and water to increase circulation, followed by meditation and yoga), and just sitting and watching the waves.
