Anytime is a good time for a girls’ weekend away; however, October is a particularly poignant time for some self care and bonding with your besties in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here we share some resorts and spas across the country using the opportunity to curate special experiences for guests while raising money and awareness for women’s health charities and healthy habits.

The Langham Huntington, Pasadena will be fundraising with its Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with 10 percent of proceeds from treatments at the Chuan Spa and ticket sales supporting City of Hope’s Women’s Cancer programs. The hotel’s Chuan Spa will host three complimentary wellness events in October, with donations to City of Hope suggested. Complimentary self-exam cards, available for women and men, will be available throughout October; guests may also scan a QR code at the spa reception to donate to City of Hope.

The Loma de Vida Spa at La Cantera Resort & Spa

La Cantera Resort & Spa, located just outside of San Antonio in Texas Hill Country, offers a 60-minute, locally crafted Raspberry Rose-infused sugar scrub treatment accompanied with a sparkling Rosé or pink mocktail. Guests can also add on a signature manicure or pedicure and a Knesko Rose Quartz Antioxidant Mask. A portion of sales from every treatment goes to WINGS, the only program of its kind in the country providing health care services to women with breast cancer. Also at the spa, Jamie O’Banion, founder and CEO of BeautyBio, will host a beauty secrets tell-all demonstration event on Oct. 8, with $5 from each admission benefitting WINGS.

Also known as the Pink Palace, The Don CeSar will host a Blossoms of Hope flower workshop in partnership with local company The Roaming Petal in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Oct. 21 workshop, open to both guests and locals, aims to raise awareness about breast cancer while fostering creativity and spreading positivity through the art of floral design. A portion of the proceeds will go back to the Moffitt Cancer Center, located in Tampa. It’s the perfect add-on for an October girls’ getaway weekend at the on-site Spa Oceana, offering a Day of Indulgence experience for $465 per person.

Pickle Up: Get in on America’s Fastest Growing Sport

Early on, pickleball had something to do with pickles. Pickles the dog, that is. In one story, the game was named for a family dog that ran off with the ball between sets.

Come Face-to-Face with Mountain Gorillas on a Trek in Uganda

Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
