But since quitting our jobs and moving to Bali isn’t an attainable situation for most of us, we’ll have to make do with a quick recharge. Enter: these five destinations that are perfect for a weekend escape. Here, where to stay, can’t-miss activities and your packing list for each.


Canyon Point, Utah

Who it's for: The outdoor adventurer.

Where to stay: Amangiri Resort. You've probably seen this luxury escape on the feeds of It girls—and for good reason. It's surrounded by 600 acres of the majestic Colorado Plateau that's both amazing for Instagram and perfect for hiking and climbing. A desert-view spa provides the ultimate in wellness.

Don't miss: The chance to explore some of the country's most magnificent locations, like the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park—all located incredibly close to the resort.

What to pack: Chic activewear.


Las Vegas, Nevada

Who it's for: Those who need to blow off some steam.

Where to stay: Palms Casino Resort. They just finished the first phase of a $620M renovation that includes gorgeous updated suites, a premiere steakhouse with one of the largest Scotch inventories in the country and Apex Social Club, a new avant-garde boutique nightclub located at the top of the hotel.

Don't miss: Your favorite band. Vegas used to be a place where performers came at the end of their career; now, everyone from Lady Gaga to Bruno Mars is headlining.

What to pack: Sultry swimwear.


Ojai, California

Who it's for: The wellness warrior.

Where to stay: Ojai Rancho Inn. This inn is, in a word, charming. Each room oozes rustic charm, and comes with a jacuzzi and a front porch. Be sure to pick up some palo santo when you check in, so you can appropriately smudge your weekend lodgings. A quaint (in a great way) pool and bar situation at the back of the property is the cherry on top. Oh, and its succulent game is on point.

Don't miss: The hot springs. They're seriously restorative. We recommend taking a bike tour to get there so you get your #fitness in, and you get to marvel in the natural beauty of Ojai.

What to pack: Easy, breezy essentials.


Sag Harbor, New York

Who it's for: Those who want to experience the other side of the Hamptons.

Where to stay: Baron's Cove. This quiet hotel is the epitome of coastal chic. It's right on the bay, so the views are exquisite, and the main street in town is within walking distance (but not so close that you're disturbed by noise).

Don't miss: The vintage shopping. The town is a veritable smorgasbord of vintage and antique treasures.

What to pack: Your prettiest summer pieces.


Cannon Beach, Oregon

Who it's for: Those looking for small-town, coastal charm.

Where to stay: The Stephanie Inn. The rooms are stunning and spacious, the staff is beyond friendly and the breakfast in the morning is to die for. We recommend selecting an oceanfront room, which come with an unbeatable view of the Oregon Coast that you can take in from your luxe balcony.

Don't miss: Bonfires by the beach, the locally made saltwater taffy and coffee from the very Oregonian coffee shop Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters.

What to pack: Beachy basics.
