“Wellness continues to be a huge travel trend, and more hotels than ever are embracing it with special programs and amenities dedicated to helping guests reduce stress, sleep better and even lose weight.

Once considered places to simply lay your head during a trip, many hotels have now become destinations in themselves, offering retreats and multi-night packages filled with activities, classes and spa treatments. And, even if you are just laying your head there, it’s likely to be on a specially-designed bed, accompanied by an extensive menu of pillow options.

Here are eight hotels that will make you feel so good, you’ll never want to check out. If only insurance would cover them.

The Westgate Hotel – San Diego, California

San Diego’s iconic downtown hotel continues to make history, this time being in the wellness space. And what a wellness space they offer! All guests are granted complimentary access to AquaVie, their 40,000-square-foot fitness center, where you can take classes, work out on state-of-the-art equipment and relax in the steam room or sauna.

You can also take advantage of the rooftop deck, featuring a heated lap pool, a running track and more machines. Or you can just stretch out in the hot tub or on a lounger and take in the city views. A dedicated wellness concierge will help you arrange it all, including a treatment at the full-service spa.”
