I just got back from a wonderful 4 night stay at CR in Lenox. What a wonderful property. So many activities and classes, I am completely sore and exhausted from my trip (which is a good thing!!).
Checking in was seamless, had a room in the west wing ( I wouldn't chose the East wing facing the tennis courts due to the air conditioner noise...very loud!). Rooms were a bit crowded and decorated in a strange monkey theme, but it was clean and newly redone.
Classes were great, went on a 6 mile hike on day 2, it was amazingly beautiful (but hot!!!). I twisted my ankle and the guide was so sweet to make sure I took it easy and promptly gave me ice when we returned. He also had ice brought to my room later which was sweet.
Food was great, I am a salt freak so I did miss salt a little, but staff didn't mind bringing you the shaker if you needed it (which I did for a couple of things). I enjoyed knowing exactly the calorie and fat content of everything I took in. It was eye-opening to say the least. (ps. the choclate chip cookies are to DIE FOR!!!).
Spa was amazing. I had 3 great Deep Tissue massages with Anastasia, the Massage Therapist. She was the best therapist I ever had. She was very knowledgeable and gave me great tips to take home with me. The only downfall was that I wanted to book another service on my last night (I only booked three) and she was completely booked already....so I got a salt scrub ( I think it was apricot???). It was ok. nothing special. If I go back I will be requesting Anastasia for my massages.
All in all my visit was great. I had a wonderful time. I really thought this place was going to be "out of my league" but it was really down to earth and nice. Canyon Ranch is really about getting in touch with yourself instead of in your face service and over the top accomodations. Don't go expecting Four Seasons or Pennisula type service/accomodations. It's not there. It's all about you and your inner being.
