Sundara Inn & Spa Named Top 10 Resorts in the Midwest

Sundara Spa

We’ve got big news to share with you about one of our local favorites, Sundara Inn & Spa. We’ve come to know and love the serenity and rejuvenation that Sundara can add to our lives. From their gorgeous landscape and architectural set-up to its world-class spa services, Sundara Inn provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of life and technology. Tucked back in a reclusive wooded area, it was the best-kept secret of the Dells- until now. 

The People have Spoken

Last week, the esteemed Travel + Leisure magazine released the results of its 25th annual “World’s Best Awards” as voted on by its travel-savvy readers, and Sundara Inn & Spa was named one of the “Top 10 Resort Hotels in the Midwest.” The resort shares the spotlight with the world’s most storied resorts in the region. To see the full list, you can click here. Sundara will also be featured in the August issue of the magazine. Travel + Leisure’s readers rated the hotels on facilities, location, service, amenities, food, and overall value. 

Sundara General Manager John Morris shared the announcement with the staff the morning the results were announced. “The staff has been working incredibly hard in welcoming back guests, and this news reaffirms for us the important role Sundara plays in people’s lives, now more than ever,” said Morris.

The Perfect Escape

For those who may not know the magic of Sundara, the resort and spa sit on 80 acres of old-growth pine forests. It is intimate by design with 34 suites and 26 spa treatment rooms. With travelers recently choosing road trips over air travel, Sundara is seeing many urban escapees from Chicago, Minneapolis, and Milwaukee who are looking to relax, reset, and recharge in pursuit of wellbeing. Sundara Inn & Spa reopened in late May, safely inviting visitors back to experience its culture of wellness in the heartland. 

You may find yourself reading along and thinking… what have I been missing out on with Sundara? Well, sit back and relax; we’re about to tell you.

Besides the features we’ve already highlighted so far, Sundara offers a full daily schedule of complimentary fitness and wellness classes, including aqua yoga, meditation, guided hikes on the trails through Sundara’s woodlands and prairies, cooking demos, and skincare tutorials, all while keeping class sizes small to maintain social distancing. Outdoor amenities include multiple pools, a hammock retreat, a conversation-free tranquility terrace, a meditation path, and a championship golf course. 

Who knew relaxing could be such hard work? Sundara also offers superb varied dining options, from a well-spaced indoor dining room to a spacious outdoor terrace. There is also a private dining room ideal for small groups traveling together, poolside service, and room service.

So… What are You Waiting for?

Whether you’re a seasoned guest or planning on booking your first stay with them, I think we can all agree that this award is very well-deserved. Congratulations on this award and honor, Sundara. Wisconsin Dells is lucky to have you!
