As 2019 comes to a close, it’s a natural time for reflection and goal-setting for the new year—but what about building in some more self-care time too? At these Wisconsin destination spas, you can up your pampering game.


The luxurious Kohler brand recently expanded its spa portfolio from its original Kohler Waters Spa in Kohler to open another location at Lodge Kohler in Green Bay’s Titletown district. Expect the same high-end treatments and facilities, with a focus on hydrotherapy (water treatments done with Vichy showers) and relaxing, sensory experiences. The spas also offer monthly specials and limited-time services throughout the year.


As one of the state’s few lakefront spas, not only can you get some serious self-care, but you can snag a scenic view from some of the treatment rooms, too. Located in the luxe Edgewater hotel in Madison, this soothing spa offers manicures, pedicures, facials, body treatments and massages. Tranquil hues of blues and neutrals echo the peaceful vibe, and guests can spend the whole day here and use the warm relaxation pool, take a yoga class through the Wellness Center or even schedule a haircut and color service at the salon. The Spa has monthly specials too, which have included discounts on services and unique add-ons.


The state’s signature destination spa in Wisconsin Dells is a must-visit for a true decompressing escape. Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler have heaped accolades on Sundara, whose interior is fashioned to reflect the surrounding Baraboo Hills and 80-acre pine forest. A massive indoor/outdoor saltwater pool, swim-up bar, hot soak pools, outdoor patios, nature trails and various treatment rooms complement the stunning array of amenities here. Make it a girlfriend’s getaway by reserving one of the new Woodland suites and allow staff to organize a food and wine pairing demonstration, yoga instruction or recreational activity for your group. This sanctuary is also electronics-free for the ultimate escape.


With its multi-million dollar mansions that line the lake, luxe accommodations and elegant dining, it’s only natural that the resort community of Lake Geneva offers several of the state’s most luxurious spas. At the sprawling Grand Geneva Resort, you’ll find a comprehensive offering of spa services, with such unique treatments as a Lava Shell massage using just that—lava shells—and a custom blend of essential oils. There’s also the seasonal treatments, such as the FarmHouse Massage with agave oil and shea butter.
