Wellness Vacations in Asheville and Western NC

Wellness Vacations in Asheville and Western NC

Well before the age of modern medicine, Asheville and Western NC was a wellness destination, offering unique health benefits to its visitors. The region’s natural forests, clean mountain air, purified running waters, and natural hot springs were thought to be a cure-all for many ailments.

The Spa at The Omni Grove Park Inn (one of the top spas in the country) is like going to spa heaven! Soothing underwater music is played in the warm mineral pools with waterfalls and fiber optic lighting that creates a womb-like experience.  Shoji Spa & Lodge offers Japanese-style hot tub sessions with massage add ons, tea service, and lodging in a tranquil wood setting.
