Four new programs designed to help you unwind.

Rima Suqi

At Parrot Cay’s Como Shambhala Retreat (from $2,232 for three nights), in the Turks and Caicos, Dr. Swati—resident ayurvedic doctor and Reiki master—focuses on “releasing negative emotions.” That could mean a change of diet, beachside yoga, or a daily deep-tissue massage.

After an initial consultation, an on-staff physician prescribes everything from mental coaching to muscle-soothing techniques for the eight-day Burnout Prevention package at Design Hotels’ new Life Medicine Resort (from $3,860), in Bad Gleichenberg, Austria.

For the program at One & Only Palmilla ($3,503 for three nights), therapists counteract anxiety with special vitamin regimens, palapa-shaded yoga, and obsidian-rock massages.

The De-Stress and Energize Life Passage at Six Senses Phuket (from $2,433 for three nights) can involve unique meditation techniques (practiced, say, on a raft in the Andaman Sea) to restore mind-body balance.

Six Senses Spa, Phuket

Destination Spa Spa-obsessed jet-setters, take note: Six Senses has brought the best of Southeast Asia’s healing arts to a speck of land off Phuket’s eastern coast. A 26-acre retreat houses four individual spas—yes, four—each dedicated to Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, or Thai traditions. Many of the practitioners have trained for years to fine-tune a single treatment, which became apparent during our deep-tissue Indian Abhyanga massage. Between appointments, we lounged by the ocean and ordered seaside delivery of addictive Thai dishes such as chili lobster.
