Vogue: A night away, simply to knock myself out? Inscrutable to the kids, highly appealing to me.
If this kind of indulgence sounds like something out of a scene from Gossip Girl (Serena van der Woodsen lived at the Palace for a spell, after all), it’s only just a sliver of the sleep-themed programs that are cropping up in hotels and resorts worldwide. Across town, the Equinox Hotel incorporates its proprietary “sleep system”—devised with a health-advisory panel—into each of its rooms. Sound-blocking walls, total-blackout window systems, and a magnesium-supplement-stocked minibar all set the tone for peaceful repose. (Its temperature-regulating sheets and shams are newly purchasable should you find yourself tempted to stuff them in your suitcase.) At the sand-swept Amangiri resort in Canyon Point, Utah, a “Restorative Sleep Retreat” will take place this November, kicking off with a diagnosis of your natural sleep pattern and continuing with a program of lectures such as “Sleep Genetics” or “The Exhausted Executive”.vogue.com
