    Translated to mean, “California life,” this French-inspired spa is not for the fainthearted. Even if you come with a spouse or partner in tow, expect separate rooms (although one newlywed we know cried at check-in and did get to stay with hubby). Issued gray sweat suits, predawn hikes, and grueling workouts, in conjunction with a few standout massages and surprisingly pampering spa treatments, are part of the norm here. Specialty As a destination spa, life change is the main draw for those who come here, whether to lose weight, stop smoking, or simply adapt a more peaceful and healthful lifestyle. Programs and experiences are customized. Rates Three-night program from about $3,400.
