When a flood of stress inevitably arrives, we wish we could take a break and set off to a place with healing waters and an indulgent spa experience.

Submerge yourself, then, in the feel-good rush of today's escape: a one-night stay at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa, a AAA Four Diamond resort nestled at the base of Beaver Creek Mountain in Vail ($165).

With the resort fee waived, let the relaxation flow as you settle in to your courtyard double or king accommodations, overlooking the bubbling resort fountain and patio. When available, you'll receive an included upgrade to the slopeside double or king, where you'll take in the stunning view of the Beaver Creek ski mountains from your balcony.

Awaken to a stream of breakfast buffet options each morning at the resort's 8100 Mountainside Bar & Grill for fresh, local fare. Sip a cappuccino before breaking out the clubs at the Beaver Creek Golf Club or the Red Sky Ranch. As a Park Hyatt guest, you'll receive preferred access to take your swings at a these celebrated, challenging links that course through the mountains.

Beaver Creek is brimming with activities the entire summer long. Pick up a trail map from the concierge for biking and hiking, or take to the sky on the Centennial Express chairlift to the top of Beaver Creek Mountain. In late July, head H2-over to the 72nd annual Eagle County Fair and Rodeo for backcountry fun. Marvel at the daring cowboys, or let out your inner child as you ride to the top of the colourful Ferris wheel.

Back at the resort, kick off your strolling gear and make your way to Allegria Spa, rated one of Condé Nast Traveller's top 250 spas. Soak in the restorative Aqua Sanitas water sanctuary, where you'll be rejuvenated during the five-step, self-guided water ritual. With your skin aglow, sink deeper into bliss when you treat yourself to a classic Swedish massage, the milk and honey sugar body scrub, or a lavender hot oil wrap.

Dry off the therapeutic waters and experience a deluge of taste with some sweet treats - rich, decadent s'mores - at the resort's fire pit. Pair milk or dark chocolate with graham crackers and one of the chef's handmade marshmallows in decadent flavours like vanilla bean, crème de menthe, and Grand Marnier.

When you're looking for a surge of something savoury after the day's wave of activity, return back to 8100 Mountainside Bar & Grill, specializing in regional, natural cuisine. Indulge in small plates at the bar and specialty dishes like cowboy-cut rib-eye steak, paired with organic wines and smooth Colorado microbrews.

Wade over to the bar or Antler Hall lounge for a nightcap before retiring back to your room. The stream of activity, rich treatments, and treasured moments of today's escape will leave you feeling positively buoyant.
