The Keystone State will show you that wellness is a cornerstone of any relaxing vacation. Soft lighting and music, combined with strong hands and a tender touch, will make you feel a million miles away from stress. Smooth out your visit to Pennsylvania’s rolling hills with massages, body therapies and skin treatments that’ll put your every muscle on holiday. These are the best spa retreats in Pennsylvania, now bookable with Culture Trip.

1. Omni Bedford Springs Resort, for healing waters in Bedford

The same eight natural mineral springs that inspired your spa treatments were used by Native Americans for their healing properties. You’ll certainly feel how enduring the powers of these springs are when you bathe in these Bedford Baths. Dr John’s Muscle Therapy Massage provides targeted relief to any ache, while a softer Zents Journey Massage will soothe and nourish your skin from head to toe. After a massage, moments of quiet reflection in the serene spa garden will leave your mind as relieved as your muscles.

2. The Rittenhouse Philadelphia, for serenity in the city

The Rittenhouse wants nothing more than to treat you to an exceptional Pennsylvania spa experience. This spa and health club knows how unique every cell of your skin is, and their experts are well-versed in catering to every inch of your body. After the Bulgarian-based 1000 Roses Facial, the Back and Shoulder Rescue Massage or the Rittenhouse Luxe Ritual Body Treatment, you’ll head back to your suite looking and feeling like someone who doesn’t know the definition of the word stress.

3. Nemacolin, for a multi-day stay in Farmington

When merely one day at the spa is not enough, Nemacolin delivers a bespoke wellness experience that’s as transformative as it is therapeutic. Begin at the Woodlands Spa and Salon, where wellness gurus will roll out a five-phase full-body balancing ritual that you’ll wish would never end. Float in unadulterated bliss to the Holistic Healing Center for a custom-tailored wellness package, which could include private meditation, cryotherapy, infrared sauna sessions, Gua Sha and PBM therapy.

4. Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center, for couples' therapy in Philly

It’s amazing how 700lbs (318kg) of healing crystals at the Four Seasons’ Spa can lift years of stress off of your shoulders. You’ll feel weightless the minute you step onto the 57th floor – and that’s before anyone lays a finger on you. A full-body crystal oil massage will bring balance to your inner spirit. If you’re lucky enough to have a partner beside you in Philadelphia, treat yourselves to a night spa experience, which includes a couples’ massage on the pool deck and a bottle of champagne.

5. The Inn at Leola Village, for a historic stay near Lancaster

We believe it’s the Amish antiques that make the spa at the Inn at Leola Village feel simultaneously rustic and refined. With your surroundings all handcrafted with the utmost care, you won’t be surprised that the massage and makeup services deliver the same delicate skill. Martinis and manicures can be ordered alongside apricot and fig clay body masks. For the gents, a Whiskey Zenzero Body Treatment will repair and transform your skin so deeply that you’ll feel like a new man within the hour.

6. The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia, for putting it on near City Hall

Embrace Balinese reverence in the City of Brotherly Love at the Ritz-Carlton holistic hotel spa. This serene space is more than just a massage table and floating candles. Healing, health and beautification are all prioritized, combining classic massages with medical-grade treatments and traditional rituals like reiki and chakra balancing. You’ll leave feeling renewed in a way that you never knew was possible.

7. Fairmont Pittsburgh, for de-stressing in Pittsburgh

If the Fairmont can loosen up the rigid Steel City, it can certainly make mincemeat of whatever knot in your shoulders needs unraveling. Add on spa access to your hotel stay, and you’ll open yourself to a world of relaxation. Dry cedar saunas, private showers, an advanced fitness center and exceptional pampering are only some of the high-quality perks. Let the staff’s talented hands do a number on your shoulders; then, wash away any lingering tingling in the soaking tub in your one-bedroom suite.

8. The Logan Philadelphia, Curio Collection by Hilton, for a sensory experience on Benjamin Franklin Parkway

If the thought of an Underground Spa & Wellness center doesn’t send a seductive shiver down your spine, we don’t know what will. Get lost in the premier spa at the Logan, a space that will rejuvenate your senses, balance your mind with your body and leave you in an energized state of Zen. Special massages like Wrist Relief and CBD Quartet are targeted treatments designed to remove stress from where it lingers most.

9. Warwick Hotel Rittenhouse Square, for winding down in Downtown

Pamper yourself with the same treatment that presidents, athletes and celebs have received at the Warwick Hotel. Settle for nothing less than the Presidential Suite, a wide-open space with sweeping city views and a spa bathtub in the luxurious master bathroom. Walk no farther than from your king bed to a massage table, as in-room spa services employ a range of techniques to customize a rub-down that leaves every muscle unraveled.
