Beauty starts from within — from what you eat and how you cope with life's challenges to how you exercise and treat your skin. Those seeking a relaxing and purifying retreat from the inside out can head to the Ranch, where there is a nearly endless variety of fitness classes for all levels (from Tennis 101 to Advanced Hiking), an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, improve-your-life classes, an authentic spa menu and, of course, a deluxe spa featuring every service imaginable (from Ayurvedic body treatments and hydrating body scrubs to transforming facials). Packages are available;  all-inclusive daily rates average $1,000 per day.
