When it’s time to choose a Wisconsin Dells spa resort for your winter spa weekend getaway, reference this definitive list.
Five Fabulous Weekend Spa Getaways in Wisconsin Dells
Wisconsin Dells may not be the first city that comes to mind when talk turns to winter spa resorts, yet it really should be, given the area is home to both day and overnight spas that rival the finest on the east and west coasts. Escape the chill with a Wisconsin Dells spa getaway that will warm mind, body, and soul.
Let’s take a closer look at five of the best winter spa resorts with details on what makes each special and what not to miss.
We should start off by saying all five of these properties offer spa two-gether experiences, so if you’re traveling as a twosome, ask about their couple’s massage offerings.
For the quintessential Wisconsin Dells spa and resort experience, Sundara Inn & Spa should be at the top of your wish list. Sundara is a destination spa recognized by the spa-savvy readers of Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler magazines as among the world’s best. Tucked back in a 98-acre enclave with pine trees and wildlife to set a soothing scene, this elegant property has heated indoor and outdoor pools, a hiking trail through the woods, a full schedule of complimentary fitness and wellness classes, and a menu of spa treatments.
Not to Miss: Woodland suites, set apart from the main resort and with private screened-in patios with large hot soaks, fireplace, and heated floor. Absolutely magical in the winter.
This downtown day spa in nearby Baraboo is so well done, anchored by a creative spa menu that features CBD spa services and the next generation of age-defying facials called derma facials plus a full selection of manicures and pedicures. Spa Serenity is a popular choice for groups, so consider it if you’re planning a bridal shower, birthday party, baby shower, or anniversary party. The spa layout and interior design aesthetic will delight even the well-heeled spa-goer.
Not to Miss: The boutique here is filled with wonderful finds. There are coveted spa product lines, accessories, jewelry, and apparel. This is a terrific place to purchase gifts to give (or keep for yourself - we won’t tell anyone)
Here’s a hidden gem on the outskirts of Wisconsin Dells. Sun Mountain Spa has a full array of spa treatments, including reflexology, a modality that uses the compression of the reflex points in the feet that correspond to organs in the body to improve circulation and aid relaxation. Their pedicure and manicure services use ingredients naturally derived from fruits and vegetables for nice skin hydration. The cleverly named Desperately Seeking Hydration body treatment has you cocooned in a warm body wrap to lock in moisture. Given the woes that winter can bring to sinus congestion sufferers, the sinus treatment, which makes use of essential oils, steam, and massage, is a must.
Not to Miss: Book a package for you and your girlfriends. The Heavenly Relief Day Package includes a signature massage, energy alignment reflexology treatment, and a revitalizing pedicure.
Think of this as a Wisconsin Dells spa resort that also features a waterpark. Spa Kalahari checks off all the boxes – nail services, hair styling, facials, massages, and body treatments. And you can stay right at the resort. If you’re in town for a special event, say a wedding or anniversary, book the DermaSound Facial for the ultimate no-downtime treatment. Your skin will look fabulous immediately. On the massage menu, there’s a prenatal massage for moms-to-be on a babymoon getaway. On the body treatment menu, the herbal detox treatment is a great stress reliever at any time, but especially during the winter months.
Not to Miss: Set aside time for a halotherapy session. This type of salt therapy neutralizes toxins while detoxing the body from the inside out. Their special salt therapy room is equipped with a halogenerator to vaporize organic Himalayan salt into the air.
Here’s another waterpark resort-connected spa that really is a destination unto itself. Chula Vista Resort is the home property of Spa del Sol and Pink Nail Bar. If you’re staying somewhere else, purchase a day pass and relax the day away. Chase away the chill of winter with the warming river stone massage. Or try the aromatherapy relaxation massage wrap, a combo Swedish body massage, warm wrap, and facial massage in one. The nail bar is known for its fun atmosphere, making it a treat for girlfriends’ groups and bridal parties.
Not to Miss: Be sure to bring your swimsuit so you can soak in the outdoor hot springs pool with an adjacent fireplace where a roaring wood fire is nothing short of mesmerizing.
