I recently suffered the loss of a very dear friend. I am emotionally, physically and mentally drained. It still feels unreal. I am looking for a 5-7 day retreat to heal my mind, body and spirit.

First of all, let me extend my sincerest condolences to you on your recent loss as undoubtedly it is a challenging time. I also want to assure you that many people go on a spa trip after losing a loved one because of the supportive and nurturing setting. All destination spas have an element of healing and helping people find peace.
Below you will find a list of spas that would be worth considering. However the first spa that came to my mind after reading your question was Miraval in Arizona. It has a very supportive environment and they offer a very unique grief counseling program called “Moving Through Grief and Loss” which emphasizes mindfulness and healing.
If you are comfortable with doing so, I’d recommend sharing with the spa staff what you’ve been through so they can best be supportive and customize a program to help you get the most out of your experience.
Wishing you all the best,
