Meet the deserving winner of a vacation to Miraval Resort


Leslie Drimel, 33, and her husband, Jon, haven't taken a vacation in seven years. Now, they're going on a spa retreat that most people can only dream of.

We’re so excited to introduce you to the lucky winner of our Miraval Sweepstakes, which gifted the unbelievable prize of a spa trip to the luxe wellness destination (at random) to one Well+Good reader who entered.

Meet 33-year-old Leslie Drimel of Minnesota, who fits squarely in the totally-well-deserved category. Drimel and her husband, Jon, haven’t taken a vacation since their honeymoon. And that was seven years ago. See what we mean?!

Now they’re packing their bags and calling the grandparents for some babysitting, so the two can head off for the glam mind-body resort in Tucson, and enjoy their prize—two-nights in deluxe casita-style accommodations, a generous credit to spend at the gorgeous spa (we love the Red Flower treatments!), plus daily self-discovery activities and access to Miraval’s extensive resort amenities. (Be happy for them!)

“I’ve always wanted to go on a spa retreat. And as a mom of 6-year-old boy and girl twins and a 3-year-old boy, you could say I’ve mostly been dreaming about it,” says the junior high and high school science teacher. “It’s just not been a reality for us.”

Drimel is ready to do “any and all” spa treatments and some yoga. “I convinced my husband to do a yoga class with me for Valentine’s Day,” she says. “I don’t think he’ll be doing those with me on the trip. He’s just excited to get away.”

To that end, the couple is thinking of extending their stay a few more days, says Drimel, and we wholeheartedly support that decision. Especially if it’s going to be another seven years until the next wellness vacation. (Though we expect Miraval will give them inspiration for a speedy return.) —Jamie McKillop
