A relaxing alpine atmosphere sets the mood at this destination spa.

Copperhood Retreat & Spa

A peaceful sanctuary in the Catskill Forest Preserve, Copperhood specializes in result-driven programs for accelerated stress alleviation, serenity, weight loss, detoxing, juice fasting, raw food diets and Ayurvedic Pancha Karma. These programs are run by a team of experts with 30 years of clinical experience in methods incorporating Chinese, Tibetan and Ayurvedic therapies and medicines with European and American regimens — though keep in mind that the environment is anything but clinical.

The property boasts an indoor lap pool, a spa with seven treatment rooms, seasoned masseurs, a fencing instructor and a yoga studio. As for the tennis court, it sits on an island reached by a hanging bridge. You can also enjoy guided hikes, biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing — or simply savor nature by lounging in the great room overlooking the nearby creek and mountain.

The tribute to Louis XVI style is evidenced in the ornate headboards, fancy writing desks, striped chairs and gold-leafed paintings. Never mind that this is a spa in the most modern sense and in the most natural setting — the incongruity is surprisingly pleasant. Each room has something different to offer, be it a Jacuzzi tub, bidet or oak banister staircase. A two-night minimum stay is required.
