The Chicest Place to Get Well
SHOU SUGI BAN HOUSE, NEW YORK
THIS NEW Japanese-inspired wellness retreat 90 miles east of New York City is stocked with everything you need to chill— meditative gardens, a spa, fitness classes in an open-air pavilion, a detoxifying infrared sauna, a transporting sound bath, hydrotherapy sessions. You can even consult with a shaman, if that’s your thing. The kitchen is overseen by Noma veteran Mads Refslund and offers mostly plant-based meals served at a communal table just a few feet from the open kitchen. The result: a highly curated but not at all fussy escape from the thrum of daily life.
