1. What makes Well+Good Retreats different from other retreats?

These intimate retreats (about 40 people a pop) are unforgettable experiences led by the top fitness and wellness luminaries (all hand-picked by our editors, of course). We’re combining best-in-class workouts, delicious healthy food, and a cool wellness approach for all that mirrors the Well+Good website ethos. Well+Good Retreats offer a high-vibe chance to slow down and connect with the W+G community. 

2. Why Palm Springs?

Palm Springs is made for poolside lounging, sun-soaked reflection, and soothing massages or facials (or both). We’ll be taking over the entire Avalon Hotel for a seriously intimate experience on the luxe Hollywood Regency grounds, updated with a chill white color palette by interiors goddess Kelly Wearstler. Unplug amidst citrus trees, aquamarine pools, and the gorgeous backdrop of the San Jacinto Mountains.

We wanted to create immersive, intimate experiences and are capping registration at 50. Booking along with your BFF is totally welcome.
