Consider spending a few days (or more!) at an Oregon spa resort for a vacation that will leave you truly relaxed and rejuvenated. Free from the taxing decisions of everyday life, you will find that focusing on the elemental sensual pleasures will lead to a feeling of pure bliss. It may take three or four days to leave your hectic routine behind, but once you reach that state of relaxation, you'll be hooked - you will want to spend all of your vacations at a spa. Here are my recommendations for spa getaways in Oregon.
Located in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley Wine Country, The Allison Inn & Spa provides a serene and relaxing environment throughout the entire facility, including the guest rooms and the many indoor and outdoor sitting areas. The luxurious, full-service spa has everything you need to take full advantage of your spa experience, including spacious locker rooms, single-sex relaxation rooms with private patio space, a coed quiet room, and 12 treatment rooms. A portion of the spa can be sectioned off to accommodate private parties.

Resort at the Mountain
The Resort at the Mountain in Welches, Oregon, is a wonderful place to get away from it all throughout the year. Located near Mt. Hood, you'll have access to summer and winter recreation of all kinds. A spa was the Resort's final addition to a recent and extensive renovation. The spa offers a nice selection of massage treatment as well as facials, body treatments, and multi-service packages. Couples' treatments are available.
Kah-Nee-Ta High Desert Resort & Casino can be found in sunny Central Oregon. The resort's Spa Wanapine offers massage and body treatments include the use of waters from the naturally-warmed springs of the resort. Operated by regional Native American tribes, Kah-Nee-Ta's guests can enjoy Vegas-style gaming, a traditional salmon-bake feast, ceremonies and festivals, and access to an abundance of outdoor recreation.
Oregon's spa resorts include the Breitenbush Hot Springs, just east of Salem in the National Forest. Holistic health and spiritual well-being are the emphasis here, with programs that include meditations and ceremonial circles, as well as massage and hot springs. Guests stay in simple cabins and must bring their own blankets and towels. Facilities include a common lodge with library, study, and dining room, and structures for meetings, yoga, therapeutic treatments, and meditation.
