Medical experts report that nearly two-thirds of adults do not get enough shut-eye. A healthy amount of sleep spurs creativity, strengthens the immune system, sharpens attention, and improves memory. Even while on a relaxing vacation, a restful night’s sleep is what guests need most, especially after hours in the sun. From the Maldives to Napa Valley, hotels and resorts are catering to the other side of a vacation: the sleep. Not your average turn-down service, these options are sure to make even the most restless guests have sweeter dreams.
Anantara Kihavah Villas in the Maldives
Sleep tight with the help of a trained Sleep Guru. After an early dinner at the resort’s restaurant, guests are greeted by their Sleep Guru who draws a soothing milk bath in the deep, Terazzo tub. After a Lavender Ylang Ylang oil massage on the villa balcony, hot tea and cookies await as they choose the perfect level of comfort from the resort’s select pillow menu. A quick spray of Lavender essential oils fills the room and guests fall into a deep, restful sleep.
PRICE: Starts at $200 per couple
Solage Calistoga in Napa Valley
For the tech-savvy guest, Solage Calistoga offers high-tech relaxation. The NASA-researched SO SoundChair holds the body at a zero gravity position that allows circulation throughout the body flow more easily. Vibrations heal and balance the nervous system and shifts guests into a state of extreme relaxation. As the finale the signature Mudslide spa treatment, this “rest stage” allows nutrient-rich volcanic mud and geothermal waters wash sink into the skin.
PRICE: The Mudslide treatment starts at $185 for two
Park Hyatt Tokyo in Tokyo
Continue on the path of well-being long into the night. Guests can take part in a complimentary 30-minute “Good Night Sleep Stretch” every Saturday and Monday night in the exclusive spa and fitness center, Club on the Park. There is a specially designed relaxation experience to gently prepare the body for a night of restful slumber. In the softly lit ambience of Club on the Park’s spacious Aerobics Studio on the 47th floor, guests are led through a series of slow stretches and breathing exercises to loosen muscles and bring the body into equilibrium. Calming vistas of the Tokyo skyline are complemented by a potpourri of aroma oils, tailored for each season and designed to promote circulation, help digestion, and relieve the body of stress. Warm herbal tea tops off the encompassing experience, softly guiding one to a good night sleep.
