Located within the Stanford Inn, this wellness center features a greenhouse that harbors an 82-degree swimming pool, hot tub, dry sauna and lounging areas amid clusters of tropical plants. In terms of safety measures, the inn has implemented mandatory masks in all communal areas, social distancing, frequent cleaning of common touch areas and more. When you're not resting by the pool, try out one of the retreat's private classes on a variety of topics, including nutrition, meditation and tai chi as well as Chinese medicine. Acupuncture, massages and spa treatments are also available. The inn's special location additionally allows for nature-filled walks and mushroom foraging. 44850 Comptche Ukiah Road, Mendocino

The Coast Ridge

Two exclusive wellness experiences are on offer at this San Francisco-based program. Explore the Kenko Retreat, which comes with private party accommodations at a main house and cabin near Stinson Beach. Private groups get the chance to immerse themselves in the outdoors, hike along the many trails by the house and receive massage therapy sessions. The second option is the 4 Day Reboot, coming back this spring. Each day of the retreat is filled with outdoor activities such as sunrise yoga, core-strengthening classes and up to five hours of hiking, and safety measures are observed in accordance with CDC and local guidelines. Visitors refuel their bodies with hearty plant-based meals made with organic, farm-to-table ingredients, sure to nourish body and mind alike. San Francisco

Indian Springs Calistoga

Guests have been coming to this bohemian resort for years in large part thanks to its Olympic-sized mineral pool, now with social distancing protocols in place, in addition to other relaxing amenities. The hotel spa provides soothing massages, facials and mineral soaks, while the Buddha Pond features private relaxation areas for dozing and meditation. Recline near the outdoor fireplace lounge, or chill out instead by some palm trees, a geyser-fed pond or one of the gardens while sipping on refreshing cucumber citrus water. Dinner at Sam's Social Club, the hotel's in-house restaurant, and bedtime in an airy bungalow round out a perfect day of leisure. 1712 Lincoln Ave., Calistoga
