How to Pack for a Spa Vacation: 8 Resort Wear Essentials
Clueless on what to pack for your spa vacation? No worries! We’ve rounded up a collection of chic yet comfortable resort wear essentials that we think should be in your suitcase while traveling.
Tommy Bahama Plumeria Swimwear
Nothing screams resort vacation more than Tommy Bahama’s tropical-print Plumeria swimsuit collection (from $62-$147), available in various styles: halter, bandeau, bandini…though we’re also fans of the Plumeria Drawstring Pants with Tassels ($78). You’ll be the coolest girl at the pool.

Wrap Up by VP
The custom-made Wrap Up collection by Valerie Perez is not only fashionable, but fashioned of velvety microfiber, so it feels amazing on your skin. The Feels Real Wrap featured here, which works as a cover-up by the pool and is easy to slip on post-spa treatment, is just one of several Wrap Up by VP pieces that we love.

Dr. Andrew Weil Integrative Footwear Rhythm Walker
Add a pair of sneakers to your packing list in anticipation for personal training sessions and workout classes. Dr. Andrew Weil Integrative Footwear’s Rhythm Walker shoe is crafted with breathable mesh, as well as the brand’s “built-in, lightweight EVA biomechanical orthotic footbed”—we know it’s hard to say, but in layperson’s terms, it means it can help support your feet and realign the lower legs to reduce discomfort.

Orthaheel Lola Sandals
Orthaheel’s Lola Sandals are not only glam with their dual-toned metal trim, but practical as well: The footbed is designed to help steady, support, and realign the feet to their natural position. Sport them for a trip to the beach, a stroll around the resort, or dinner when you feel like being a little bit fancy.
