Indian Springs, California

If you believe holidays are for doing nothing but chilling out, kicking back and restoring your inner self, visit a place that has elevated relaxation into an art form.

Mud is a fantastic relaxant (as well as being a great toner and refresher for your skin). Soaking in natural mineral water is a long-established way of promoting a sensation of wellbeing and glowing health. At Indian Springs there is plenty of both – the thermally-heated natural mineral bath, for example, is the size of an Olympic swimming pool, the largest in California.

Make a stop-over at Indian Springs part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to the USA and you’ll discover the resort has other ways of ensuring you relax. A spa with calming treatments and soothing massages. A restaurant with a reputation for serving some of the region’s best food, complemented by fine Napa Valley wines. Gentle games like croquet and shuffle board. Cycling trips to the village…
