Car company Lexus has once again tapped into the luxury world of travel with its newest Retreats in Motion, a first-of-its-kind driving experience. These five-day, four-night Lexus wellness retreats allow guests to take a scenic, restorative drive in a new 2021 Lexus IS between two of the brand’s luxury hotel partners, with curated self-care activities along the way.
The Lexus partner hotels selected for the “Retreats in Motion” program have been hand-picked for their top service, design and culinary offerings. Guests will spend two nights at each resort – with an average three-hour drive between each property – before returning to the originating hotel. Participating hotels in the three California-based retreats include:
- Cavallo Point Lodge to Post Ranch Inn
- Bardessono Hotel & Spa to Pebble Beach Resorts
- Terranea Resort to Post Ranch Inn
Unlike typical getaways, Lexus wellness retreats—the “Retreats in Motion” program— incorporates the vehicle as an integral part of the wellness experience. More than just transporting travelers from each partner hotel, the Lexus vehicle is a destination and sanctuary in and of itself and is equipped with a mobile wellness kit to help travelers get the most out of their journey.
In creating the program, the automaker has partnered with mindbodygreen, a health and well-being lifestyle media brand, to create custom content featuring some of the world’s most-loved wellness experts for each retreat.
Highlights include podcasts on sustainability with best-selling author Jonathan Safran Foer and a guided walking meditation with teacher Mary Beth LaRue, along with content covering topics from mindful eating to movement for longevity. Additionally, an immersive in-car sound bath with expert Sara Auster – designed to be played through the signature Mark Levinson sound system – helps clear energy blockages and deliver a sense of calm.
Guests are responsible for the “Retreats in Motion” Lexus wellness retreats registration costs and travel expenses. Fees start at $2,700 for two guests, and include:
- Five-day, four-night stay at each property;
- Loan of a new 2021 Lexus IS vehicle;
- Intimate access to curated wellness content, including self-care discussions, in-vehicle sound bath, meditation, guided breathwork and more;
- Complimentary welcome wellness kit.
The 2021 Lexus IS has a 241- horsepower turbocharged in-line 4 engine, Apple CarPlay integration and standard Lexus safety system.
