MENDON and KILLINGTON, Vt., July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel + Leisure Magazine announced today that New Life Hiking Spa has won the coveted spot as the number one domestic destination spa. The announcement was made by Travel + Leisure Magazine this morning and will be featured in the August issue of Travel + Leisure that hits the newsstands on July 15th.
Founded in 1978 by Jimmy LeSage, M.S., New Life Hiking Spa is the spa-world's truly authentic, low-key wellness getaway. This award winning hiking spa program is offered just 20 weeks a year, when hiking is at its peak in Vermont. Three levels of professionally guided hikes are offered each day to accommodate every level of fitness among the guests. From nature walks to hiking up some of the highest peaks in Vermont, New Life Hiking Spa provides beautiful scenery and exercise in the fresh mountain air.
Combine world-class hiking with three freshly prepared meals a day, one massage for each three night stay, fitness classes, cooking demonstrations and a private room in a Vermont country-inspired inn; and that is what a renewing destination spa vacation at New Life Hiking Spa in Vermont includes.
New Life Hiking Spa takes approximately 40 guests at a time and many come for extended stays to get healthy and concentrate on their wellness and weight loss. Shorter programs are offered to destress and take in the beauty of the Green Mountains for those that only have a few days. Thousands of guests have come through New Life's doors from around the world and left relaxed, rejuvenated and healthier while getting an excellent value for almost four decades.
New Life typically has a return guest ratio of approximately 40 percent. For the 2016 season, the return guest rate is over 50 percent. "Guests return year after year because New Life Hiking Spa has the best programming and the best pricing of any destination spa in the country. It is no surprise they won this award. It has a devoted following and people who come back the same week every year. It really is like summer camp for grown-ups, but with a hotel room, delightful massages and bodywork included," stated frequent guest, G. Maxwell from Florida.
Whatever the amount of days one has to spend at this little gem in Vermont, the 2016 season will run until October 3rd. All-inclusive prices range from $229-$269 per person per night based on length of stay. Reservations can be booked on the website at www.NewLifeHikingSpa.com or by calling 802-353-2954.
