Catskills Sabbatical: Relax & Rejuvenate at Copperhood Spa

By Liz Genest Smith

Two hours outside of Manhattan, the chic Copperhood Spa is tucked away in the lush Catskill Mountains, where it strives to strike the perfect balance between comfort and elegance, relaxation and fitness, as well as gourmet and healthful. Surrounded by such natural beauty, it’s no wonder that the spa’s philosophy is inspired by the great outdoors. Guests can enjoy an array of activities, including hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, tennis, fishing, or just unwinding in the sun and witnessing the wonders of nature while dining al fresco. 

Some of these result-driven programs include accelerated weight loss, detoxifying diets, juice fasting, raw food therapy, and Ayurvedic Panchakarma.

There is no shortage of indoor activities offered in their yoga studio, 60-foot indoor pool, and full gym. After a vigorous workout, guests are welcome to relax in the sauna, hot tub or steam room. Where spa treatments are concerned, they offer massages, facials and hydrotherapy, just to name a few. 

With a focus on balancing and rejuvenating the mind, body and spirit, their health and wellness programs integrate naturopathic and conventional medicines. As such, they call on the expertise of a consulting doctor, naturopaths, fitness instructors, spa therapists, nutritionists and alternative health practitioners to create individual programs. Some of these result-driven programs include accelerated weight loss, detoxifying diets, juice fasting, raw food therapy and Ayurvedic Panchakarma, which are designed to break food and substance addictions to caffeine, sugar, alcohol, cigarettes and other unhealthy habits.
