THE WELL at Mayflower Inn

A peaceful New England refuge
The 20,000-square-foot THE WELL at Mayflower Inn takes a holistic approach to wellness. Mayflower Inn & Spa, Auberge Resorts Collection's facility amps up the usual spa offerings with Eastern (like reiki, forest bathing and acupuncture) and Western services (like health coaching). 

If you want to get moving, peruse the calendar of daily classes, including high-intensity cardio and weight training, yoga, meditation, Pilates barre and pool conditioning. Some popular programming includes the happy hour tarot card readings and the Friday-night gong baths.

Or sign up for workshops, like the Skinhealth session, where the director of education at Biologique Recherche provides tips on how to properly care for your skin and shares which tools should be used in your daily routine. 

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • None of the treatment rooms at THE WELL have windows. They are purposely cavernous, quiet and dim to promote deep relaxation.
  • The offered refreshments are light yet satisfying. Beverage options include pitchers of lemon-infused water and a selection of black, green and herbal teas.
  • The luxury spa has a wide variety of private and small-group classes that are offered daily. You’ll find everything from yoga and Pilates to sleep and stress-management workshops to meditation walks and guided hikes.
  • You can request to enjoy a variety spa treatments without having to leave your rooms.
  • Jumpstart your wellness regimen with the Full-Body Reboot, a results-oriented, face, abdomen and body treatment that stimulates the lymphatic systems.
Things to Know
  • The cozy spa has eight treatment rooms, so if you’re hoping to nab a Saturday afternoon time slot during busy season, you might have some trouble if you don’t book it well in advance.
The Treatments

  • Retreat to nature for the Forest Craniosacral. During the outdoor experience, a therapist will use non-invasive techniques to help you release tension and find harmony.
  • Soften your skin with the Garden Scrub. The exfoliation incorporates a dry body brushing, local salts and herbs from the onsite garden.
  • Revive your skin with the Remodeling Facial. A special machine uses three currents to stimulate cells and regenerate the dermis.
  • If you need more holistic wellness, opt for the Integrated Detox. You’ll enjoy a detox smoothie, a full-body dry brushing, a lymphatic drainage massage, a private meditation, a mindful movement class and a personalized facial.

The Facilities
  • The waiting area is simply stunning. As you walk into the elegant and sparse white room, you’re immediately enveloped in a soothing, soft light.
  • We adore the spa’s stunning light-filled, blue glass-tiled heated indoor pool and domed whirlpool. They’re the perfect spots to unwind after a treatment or a long day of activities at the Mayflower Inn.
  • It’s hard not to feel at peace in the utterly blissful white relaxation room with a view, known as the Garden Room.
  • No matter what time of year you visit the Connecticut spa, you’ll want to indulge in it hammam-like marble warming room called the Thermal Sanctuary. It features healing colors, a scented moisturizing mist and music that will lull you into total relaxation.
  • There’s nothing we love more than a good steam room, and this spa has one of the best.
