A mountain retreat nestled in a 325-acre natural forest preserve in the Catskills, Menla embodies spiritual tranquility and natural beauty. This Shangri-La destination is tucked away within an Audubon-recognized bird sanctuary teeming with wildlife in Hudson Valley’s hamlet of Phoenicia, two-and-a-half hours from New York City and 25 minutes from Woodstock.

The Spa 

The Mahasukha “Great Bliss” Spa focuses on holistic integration of mind, body, and spirit. They specialize in diagnostic consultations with Tibetan practitioners, herbal treatments, herbal baths, and KuNye Tibetan massage, as well as many other traditional Eastern and Western treatments. Yoga and meditation techniques are part of their daily program. Mahasukha Spa also offers Finnish and far–infrared saunas and Tibetan herbal soaking tubs. The hand-crafted, Tibetan inspired environment provides an ambiance of peace and tranquility which will enhance your stay.

The Mahasukha Spa presents a sublime atmosphere of pure serenity and rejuvenation. Tibetan-inspired interiors cultivate a sense of calm, enhanced by a comprehensive list of amenities including, 11 treatment rooms, Finnish and infrared saunas, steam rooms, rain showers with jets, and Tibetan herbal soaking tubs, in the 4,000-square-foot spa total, and a relaxation room overlooking a verdant garden.

Mahasukha Spa’s philosophy centers around offering an integrated therapeutic experience, with an inspiring ensemble of treatments combining Ayurvedic, Tibetan, and western techniques. Therapeutic options include the ancient KuNye Tibetan massage and medicinal herbal bath, which utilizes minerals, rhodiola rosea, and goji berries. Tata Harper, Exodeus, Floracopeia, and Dr. Alkaitis products, as well as a variety of Tibetan herbs, are also used in services.

Spa-goers 18 years and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Facilities & Amenities

Menla’s magnificent natural mountain valley setting—surrounded by thousands of acres of Catskills forest—allows for a truly harmonizing mind-body retreat to unfold. In the warmer seasons, miles of hiking trails and prime fishing and water tubing on Esopus River are in demand; winter brings skiing and snowboarding opportunities on the nearby Belleayre, Hunter, and Windham Mountains, all just a short car ride away. On-property workout amenities include the Sapphire outdoor swimming pool, two tennis courts, a 400-square-foot fitness center stocked with Pilates Reformer and cardiovascular equipment. Yoga, qigong, tai chi, and dance classes are available as well.

Additionally, Phoenicia, voted “one of the top 10 coolest small towns in America” by Budget Travel magazine, attracts visitors for its restaurants, shops, and outdoor adventure. Phoenicia is just 20 minutes from Woodstock, where music, art galleries, fine dining, theater, and antique stores take center stage.

Rooms & Dining

Menla’s 57 guest rooms, varying from 245 to 440 square feet, are divided between the two-story, chalet-type Hill House and the three-story, bell tower-inspired Delos Inn. Interiors are decorated in earth tones, mimicking the surrounding mountain and forest landscape, offset by subtle Tibetan accents. Accessories such as organic linens and towels, down quilts, and signature Menla soaps foster a special touch, and guests have access to complimentary high-speed WiFi.
