So you want to get in shape—or atone for a season of overindulgence—with a rejuvenating, wellness-focused trip. The first step is picking the destination spa that’s right for you.

Vana Malsi Estate, Dehradun, India

If you want to practice yoga at its source...

The most buzzed-about destination spa opening of 2014 was this contemporary, eco-conscious retreat in the Himalayan foothills, a short flight from New Delhi. It comes with all the trappings of an upscale resort, but don’t let that fool you. Guests meet with a Wellness Concierge to craft itineraries that might include yoga, tennis, acupuncture, cooking classes, Watsu, herbal medicine, and treatments in the four dedicated spa facilities (one each for ayurvedic, Tibetan, Chinese, and Western modalities). The organic meals, which include wine at dinner, are crafted without any refined flour or sugar, and guests get clothing to wear during the stay along with bath products customized to their ayurvedic dosha.
