Three facilities within an easy drive of Atlanta have made the Top 10 list in USA Today’s Readers’ Choice Awards in the category of Best Wellness Retreat. Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, North Carolina, was second on the list; Skyterra Wellness Retreat in Pisgah Forest, North Carolina, earned the third spot, and Hilton Head Health in Hilton Head, South Carolina, came in at No. 10. For the second year in a row, Eupepsia in Bland, Virginia, took the top spot.

“We’re honored to be included on this fantastic list, particularly because the selection is made by the most important voters—our guests,” said Dave Hall, director of marketing for Art of Living Retreat Center. “We’re thrilled to be having one of our best years ever because it means we get to serve more guests, helping them to nourish their minds and bodies and reconnect with their true selves.” 

The USA Today list appears to have started in 2016. Nominees are selected by a panel of experts, and winners are voted by readers. Art of Living Retreat Center was No. 1 in 2016 and has placed in the top five ever since. 

Hilton Head Health was founded in 1976 and earned No. 1 honors in 2017, 2019 and 2020. It came in at No. 2 in 2018 and 2021. 

Skyterra, founded in 2016, first appeared in the Top 10 in 2018 at No. 1. Since then, it has been No. 3 for four consecutive years.
