BLAND, Va. – Virginia-based Eupepsia Wellness Resort, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, has been named one of the top two wellness resorts in the U.S. for 2020.
For the second year in a row, Eupepsia Wellness Resort has earned this top honor from voters in USA Today’s Readers’ Choice awards. Eupepsia was one of 20 nominees selected by a small panel of wellness travel experts.
This year’s award is especially significant in view of the heightened importance placed on health and wellness, coupled with caution when it comes to travel.
Earlier this year, Eupepsia launched immunity-boosting ‘outdoor wellness staycations’ that harness the positive impact of nature on physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Appealing to guests keen to reset, recharge, and build their immunity, they are also increasingly popular as wellness sabbaticals for professionals who want to combine work with a wellness program.
With social distancing, contact-free, and other measures in place to keep guests protected and healthy, Eupepsia’s boutique resort provides a safe haven allowing complete privacy and peace of mind.
Set on 256 acres of welcoming, open grounds, the resort provides an immersive and integrated approach to wellness with real-time curation for a truly transformative experience.
Guests are given a personalized program tailored to their bio-individual needs with chef-prepared, plant-based, balanced meals tailored to different body types as well as advanced health screenings combined with traditional Ayurveda-based and progressive therapies.
The program features meditative yoga sessions in the Grand Yoga Hall or open-air studio on the pond, treatments in the creek-side cabanas, authentic Ayurveda treatment rooms, and hydro-therapies in the indoor or outdoor spas.
Nature-based sports and activities are also an important part of the program.
Guests head out on guided hikes on one of the seven hiking trails in and around the property, connected to the Appalachian Trail and nearby Jefferson National Forest, or nature walks to enjoy the health benefits of forest bathing. They engage in sports ranging from mountain biking to functional training sessions in the outdoor pool, or rowing, canoeing, kayaking or pedal boating in the pond.
Guests can enjoy in the resort’s 26 contemporary bedrooms, offering direct access to open spaces.
Those with specific wellness needs can book specialized assessments, evaluations, and one-on-one consultations, during their stay.
