Mii Amo, Arizona, USA

In the Native American Yuman dialect, Mii Amo means journey. The spa is located in Arizona’s red-rock country and is literally chiseled into the rugged mountain. Its architecture has won several awards, as has the resort itself. The various spa programs are called journeys and the Sedona Clay Wrap is a must-try. The Wrap is supposed to nourish and detoxify your skin. This is a good place for a pampering holiday for you and your partner.

Besides yoga and meditation, you can indulge in snorkeling, diving, sailing and other non-motorised water sports.

Sundara, Wisconsin, USA
