Castle Hot Springs introduces first-ever ‘sleep retreat’
In these seemingly busier times where we’re trying to pack in so much within a 24-hour day, there’s much more to mastering the art of truly restful and restorative sleep than meets the eye – it’s all about mind & body connection. With more than 1 in 3 Americans experiencing sleep deprivation, many of us are seeking newfound ways and techniques to get some quality shut eye these days. On a mission to relieve and revive weary travelers looking for the ultimate reset and reboot this Spring, Castle Hot Springs invites you to uncover the secret to true R&R: a good night’s sleep.
Tucked away in the Bradshaw Mountains, secluded from the city’s noise and pollution, lives Arizona’s luxury desert oasis & wellness hideaway, Castle Hot Springs – a 1,100-acre nature-filled sleep sanctuary if you will, dedicated to further enriching the mind, body, and soul wellness of their guests with its first-ever immersive Sleep Retreat.
From March 24 – 28, 2022, guests will be guided through discussions, strategies, meditations, and centering activities all designed to help you achieve the increasingly unattainable daily luxury of uninterrupted rest led by sleep expert Dr. Rebecca Robbins
The four-day retreat centered on reforming your sleep will include multiple group discussions and strategy sessions on circadian science + the connection between nutrition and sleep, private wellness sessions with Dr. Rebecca Robbins, circadian-boosting yoga, hikes and walks, a farm tour, gong bath sound ceremony, and sleep meditations, along with plenty of free time to explore the resort and partake in desert soaking in the mineral-rich hot springs. On the last day, sleep seekers will leave the resort with the knowledge and tools to snooze with ease and intention.
Castle Hot Springs offers a well-balanced approached to wellness, allowing you to reset throughout your entire retreat. Their geothermal hot springs have long made it a restorative ground for visitors beginning with Native Americans who journeyed to the mineral-rich hot springs for medicinal purposes. Naturally forged over time, the hot springs boast a variety of natural minerals – particularly rich in lithium, magnesium, and bicarbonates, which together help lift your mood, calm your mind, and ease aching joints and muscles.
During the retreat’s free time – in addition to soaking in the hot springs – guests can choose from a variety of activities including stand up paddleboard yoga, horseback riding, hiking, and training in archery amongst the resort’s surrounding rugged terrain; pickle and bocce ball on the great lawn; and the state’s first-ever Via Ferrata course.
Tying into the Sleep Retreat’s lecture on nutrition, Castle Hot Springs’ culinary programming additionally promotes the resort’s overall wellness approach. The sustainable ‘Flavor Farming’-driven culinary and agricultural teams at Castle Hot Springs, emphasize growing and utilizing crops for flavor rather than size and yield. Led by the agricultural team, the property grows an incredible bounty of more than 500 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and florals including distinct varieties of delicious heirloom and hybrid tomatoes on the resort’s thriving one-acre organic farm and greenhouse, all of which supply the resort’s on-site dining experiences.
A one-of-a-kind adult getaway (ages 16 and up only), Castle Hot Springs is located just an hour’s drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport yet remains a perfectly remote hideaway for those seeking to disconnect in a naturally distanced environment.
