Pamper Yourself at this SoHo New York Hotspot With Private Sauna

Whisk your lover away to The City That Never Sleeps for a steamy stay at The Dominick. The award-winning, five-star hotel will feel like a cocoon of wellness and romance — but if you get restless, the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn and Times Square are just a stone’s throw away. This NYC hotel hotspot is the best of both worlds.

After entering one of the spa suites on the 8th floor, drink in the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the skyline. (Reserve in advance to snag the one with the decadent en suite private sauna!) Turn on the tap for a bath in the room’s deep soak tub, step into the giant marble rainfall shower big enough for two, or melt tension in the private sauna. If you tire of the in-room amenities, book a specially discounted treatment in Manhattan’s only luxury hammam or a rejuvenating facial in the Babor Signature Spa.

Escape Into Nature at This Lodge in Oregon

Bend, Oregon, is a delight at any time of year. The air is crisp and clear. Pine trees and mountain peaks bristle in the background. A romantic winter escape here offers plenty of socially distanced outdoor activities — hiking, snowboarding, skiing — as well as a charming downtown to explore when the day is done.

Entrada Lodge might not be the most luxe accommodation in Bend, but it has all the trappings of wellness and relaxation that an outdoorsy couple could want. If you book the King Spa Sauna Room, you’ll be treated to a private Jacuzzi tub and private sauna. Spend the day mountain biking, stop into the local Broom Closet speakeasy for a drink, then head back to your room for an evening luxuriating in the bubbles and steam.

Unwind at the Farmhouse Inn in Sonoma

Is there anything so romantic as relaxing in front of a roaring fire, glass of wine in hand? Or perhaps you prefer a deep soak for two or getting steamy in your cottage’s private sauna? Regardless of how you like to turn up the heat, you can do it at the Farmhouse Inn, Sonoma.

Every one of the inn’s rooms is charming, but the Farmhouse King rooms pull out all the stops. Enjoy dinner at the Farmhouse Restaurant, which is led by a Michelin-starred chef, then head back to your retreat to enjoy another bottle of red or bubbly by the wood-burning fireplace. Take your pick of a soak in the jetted tub or a steam in the dry sauna. Cheers!
