Cause and Effect

Nestled near Pearl Street, the main drag in Boulder, Colorado, the St Julien Hotel & Spa beckons outdoor enthusiasts and eco-minded travelers from around the globe.

In 2007, the four-star, AAA four-diamond, 201-room property launched a zero-waste campaign (think reusable towels, waste refresher staff workshops, and an on-site culinary and herb garden lined with mint, tomatoes, sage and basil used in the hotel’s eateries, including the always hopping T-Zero Lounge, where many of the signature cocktails are made with local Colorado liquor).

At the 10,000-square-foot spa, complete with a 50-foot indoor lap pool, steam and sauna, an herb garden and sweeping mountain views, guests can melt away stress, soothe inflammation, and ease muscle aches and pains with the 50-minute Colorado Bliss CBD Classic Massage using massage oil and body butter that is infused with healing plant extracts and water-soluble CBD (or cannabidiol) from the Denver-based, all-natural skincare company, Cause+Medic. The next day, wake restored and refreshed and ready to take on nearby hiking and biking trails. stjulien.com
