The beautiful Oregon scenery is enough to make any vacation a winner. However, if you’re looking to fully relax, you’ll want a hotel with wellness at its core. Here are the top spa hotels and wellness retreats in Oregon – all bookable via Culture Trip – with added perks that include championship golf courses and horseback rides through the Cascade Mountains.
It’s easy to see why Brasada Ranch topped Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Resorts in the Pacific Northwest list this year. This central Oregon sanctuary is home to 65 family cabins and eight adult-only ranch house suites set across 65 acres (26ha). Book a two- to four-bedroom Sage Canyon cabin, which comes with a private hot tub, stocked kitchen, washer/dryer and barbecue deck, plus it’s dog-friendly. Start the day with a round on the championship golf course and finish it with a sunset horseback ride through the high desert.
Set in the woods between Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the Pacific Ocean, this luxury lodge gives you 200 acres (80ha) of coastal playground to enjoy. Rooms are made from local timber and overlook the canopy of Douglas firs; upgrade for a balcony or fireplace. Beyond the on-site indoor pool, fitness center and spa, there’s a staggering array of local activities, from the neighboring 18-hole golf course and tennis center to a unique on-site aerial adventure park.
This resort is set on 3,300 acres (1,335ha) in the high desert mountains, just 15mi (24km) outside of Bend on the Deschutes River. Choose from the lodge village rooms, which come with a volcanic rock fireplace and a whopping 65-inch TV, or settle in at the River Lodge where you get a river-rock fireplace in your room and exclusive access to outdoor hot tubs. The resort has pools for every season, flyfishing in the Deschutes, four award-winning golf courses and 45mi (72km) of bike paths. Kick back afterwards at the Sage Springs Spa – the Riverside Relaxer massage will soothe any sore muscles.
Pronghorn Resort is a golf-oriented luxury escape, nestled in the junipers of the high desert in Bend. Stay as long as you like here, as Pronghorn has both short-term stays at their Huntington Lodge, or long-term vacation homes and rentals. A wide array of luxury rooms come with full kitchens and fireplaces, as well as private patios looking towards the Cascade Mountains. Walk to the resort’s golf course and enormous swimming pool; enjoy a champagne brunch at the Cascada Restaurant; sip a cocktail in the Pronghorn member-exclusive lounge; or indulge in the signature facial at the spa.
Located within Eugene’s historic 5th Street Public Market, the Inn at the 5th is the premier boutique hotel in the city. Your stay here starts with an inclusive wine or beer upon arrival. Rooms are both cozy and contemporary, featuring fine Italian linens, a private butler pantry for in-room dining and warm fireplaces. Spa suites go even further, with whirlpool tubs for two, immersion showers and Aveda amenities. Add complimentary cruiser bikes, French-inspired fine dining at the hotel’s partner Marché restaurant, plus a 24-hour fitness center, and you’ve got all you need for a pampering stay.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way.

Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day.
