Wisconsin Dells may be known as the “waterpark capital” of the United States. But the town’s other claim to fame is being home to one of the most celebrated resorts in the world—Sundara Inn and Spa.
Sundara’s sprawling grounds now extend over 80 acres to include 44 guest rooms and celeb-worthy suites; an open-air yoga deck; a full-service restaurant; and a salt therapy treatment room. The latter in particular is a rare amenity to find within the state—another indication of how Sundara always seems to be ahead of the curve in terms of beauty and wellness trends.
Same can be said about two of the latest treatments to debut at the spa: the Be Well CBD Facial and Cellulite Reducing Body Wrap. Guests quickly become aware the property is not schlepping buzzwords to consumers simply to make a sale. The beauty offerings are curated for effectiveness on a holistic level. Without a doubt, one’s skin looks rejuvenated after an Herbal Infusion or Cryo T-Shock session. But the mental release which often accompanies these targeted, tranquil periods of self-care are also key components to the wellbeing-forward travel experience Sundara provides.
“Several of the topical products we use contain as much as 350 mg of CBD,” says aesthetician Amy Tollaksen. “CBD turns off the pain receptors…encouraging muscle relaxation as the exfoliation, hydration and massage phases of the facial progresses.”
And inner nourishment gets as much focus onsite at Sundara as the exterior of the body. The in-house restaurant Nava serves up seasonal eats year-round with a major emphasis on freshness thanks to the hydroponic greenhouse literally mere feet away from the kitchen’s exterior door. Plus, the culinary team now regularly provides cooking demos throughout the week. Learning how to make signature menu items like the honeydew salad, vegan pulled “pork” sandwich, parmesan-crusted halibut and petit filet mignon is the type of activity many visitors have been longing to do for some time, but never seem to get around to at home.
The same can be said about the complimentary yoga and meditation classes each day. Which is what makes Sundara a dream destination for urban dwellers looking for a respite easy driving distance from cities in the Midwest like Madison, Milwaukee and Chicago. Meaning your bags can be packed as often as needed to soak up solace in a private pool, on a secluded balcony, along wooded trails or—all of the above.
