Canyon Ranch’s newest brand extension, Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreats, is slated to launch in fall 2019. The brand’s first retreat model, located in Woodside, CA, above Skyline Boulevard, will offer guests highly sensory, personalized wellness sojourns. The property provides three-, four- and seven-day retreats, with 14 guestrooms and 24 additional guestrooms in standalone luxury treehouses. Amenities include an indoor/outdoor training zone, a boutique spa, sauna, an indoor saline pool and a whirlpool.

The property will offer a fully curated program encompassing multiple themes, including but not limited to mind-body, joy, culinary, movement and wellness. Outdoor activities will include year-round hiking and biking adventures to nearby world-class trails. A nature trail and a challenging obstacle course are canopied by towering Redwoods.

Recently, the company has announced six new leadership appointments.
