Spas: Fine dining, fast cars, rich food; fancy hotels with all-night room service and overflowing bottles of champagne and mini bars stocked with goodies are all symbols of the good life. But sometimes when you have it all you may tend to over-indulge. How many times have you experienced the morning after and said, "never again?" ... only to find yourself overindulging again at another lavish dinner party or festive celebration with a luscious buffet! Here's the perfect anti-dote to your overindulgences!

The Raj: Remember when John, Paul, George and Ringo went to India, met the Maharishi and became enlightened? Well, that same "guru" has established a serene, 100-acre enclave located amid Iowa farmland. This idyllic setting is the foundation for practicing Ayurveda, India's ancient system of medicine. Ayurveda is a health system that has been successfully used for prevention and healing for over 5000 years. (It's practiced here as Maharishi Ayurveda, a version created by a council headed by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, fonder of Transcendental Meditation, of TM.) Now, you don't have to travel to India if you choose his retreat that evokes spacious timelessness. Especially well suited for city-folk, this French country estate with elegant simplicity reigns throughout. Its sparely adorned halls and rooms are a quiet symphony of soft peach, white and sand hues. The landscape is idyllic with tree-dotted lawns and large ornamental pond. It is the ultimate setting for getting back to basics: quiet surroundings, simple food, soft voices and gentle hands.
