Lexus elevates the great American road trip with its first-ever Retreats in Motion program. Five-day, four-night driving retreats allow guests to take a restorative drive in a new 2021 Lexus IS between two of the brand’s luxury hotel partners, with self-care activities along the way.
Guests partaking in the Retreats in Motion program have been hand-picked and include Cavallo Point Lodge to Post Ranch Inn; Bardessono Hotel & Spa to Pebble Beach Resorts; and Terranea Resort to Post Ranch Inn. Guests spend two nights at each resort, with an average three-hour drive between each property. This spring, East Coast drivers can participate in the program from XV Beacon to Chatham Bars Inn.
Lexus partnered with mindbodygreen on the program, creating custom content with wellness experts for each retreat. Highlights include podcasts, a guided walking meditation and an immersive in-car sound bath. The customized route between properties also feature suggested stops and wellness activities.
Guests are responsible for registration costs and travel expenses, with fees starting at $2,700 for two guests. The Retreats in Motion offer includes a five-day, four-night stay at the properties; loan of a new 2021 Lexus IS vehicle; access to curated wellness content; and a complimentary welcome wellness kit.
