With access to 20 miles of hiking and riding trails among redwoods and along the coast, active guests of The Inn at Newport Ranch (Fort Bragg, CA), which is part of a 2,000-acre coastal cattle ranch, have plenty of need for pampering. Thankfully, the recently opened Fireside Spa now provides them with the perfect place to kick back and relax. Guests enter the relaxation room through a grove of redwood trees and are immediately set at ease in front of a roaring fire before heading off to one of the two treatment rooms where they can enjoy a variety of muscle-melting massages and facial services including these unique options.
Thai Yoga Therapy ($155, 90 minutes) is an interactive oil-free massage that relies on pressure to the soft muscle tissue to unblock trapped energy. This treatment involves the use of palm and thumb pressure as well as dynamic stretches to rejuvenate the meridians of the body.
Newport Ocean Renewal ($130, 60 minutes) refreshes skin with botanical cleansers, cooling herbal toners, and more. After cleansing, a soothing steam with warm towels softens skin, opens pores, and allows toxins to be released. A Goji berry yogurt mask soothes, promotes detoxification, and renews skin cells, and a facial massage brings the service to a calm close.
It’s a cozy place for weary wannabe ranch hands to recharge and get back in the saddle.
