Sun at Sundara!


We Minnesotans endured a hot summer! Painfully hot at times. So even for a summer-lover like myself, I must admit it’s been a welcome reprieve to feel the crisp, fall air. But don’t pack away your bikini just yet, because you don’t have to go all the way to Florida or Mexico this fall to lounge by the pool.

Just a quick 3 1/2 hour drive from the Cities, Sundara Inn & Spa in the Wisconsin Dells offers absolutely everything you could want or need in a rejuvenating girls weekend or a romantic getaway.

Consistently ranked one of “Top Spas” in America by the likes of Travel + Leisure magazine, Conde Nast Traveler magazine, ABC’s Good Morning America, and more, the Spa boasts 26 awe-inspiring guest suites and a menu of spa services that will make you drool.

The best part, though, is the outdoor amenities. And I’m not talking about gorgeous hiking trails throughout the property’s 26 beautiful acres of pine trees and stone outcroppings. Sure, those are nice too, but the real attraction for me is the the heated outdoor infinity edge pool, sculpted fireplace, waterfalls, and deck. I can’t tell you how nice it feels to lay out in a bikini by the pool in October in the Midwest. It may even be better than Mexico!

In addition to Sundara’s usual package deals this fall, check out the Spa’s Key to Happiness Women’s Retreat on October 21-23 featuring workshops, spa access, and chef-prepared meals.
