Auberge’s Telluride Retreat Introduces Wellness Partnership with Reset Telluride

An ultra-luxury retreat helps guests achieve their ultimate potential


Madeline Hotel & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection in Telluride is debuting an exclusive partnership with Reset Telluride, a private, ultra-luxury wellness and trekking retreat, that will launch in May 2022. The partnership will give guests the opportunity to experience a private retreat bringing together luxury, wellness, and guided backcountry trekking in the San Juan mountains.

Designed to help participants break out of tired patterns, the retreat features daily half-day treks, chef-designed plant-based cuisine, restorative full-body therapies and spa services, and more. Set at elevation, the retreat incorporates the healing power of nature with high-altitude training and trekking. A complete physical and mental reset, it is ideal for individuals, couples, and groups.

Reset guests will stay in a private wing of the hotel, reserved just for them, featuring bespoke and elegantly appointed guest rooms. They will also have 24-hour access to a hospitality suite, which offers concierge services, healthy snacks and drinks, a foot care station, and additional offerings designed for recovery such as specially curated teas, a hydration station, and salves to revitalize the body at the end of the day. The experience also includes a plant-based menu for guests prepared by Reset’s culinary team. Other highlights include a five-minute in-room guided sleep meditation to encourage a restful night.

Wellness is infused throughout the Madeline Hotel with a host of offerings, such as the Après Stretch and Recover class, that promote mindfulness and mental wellbeing. Another option is the Art of Tea Ceremony. Guests can join tea expert Colin Hudon at Mountain Gate Tea Room in downtown Telluride for a 90-minute experience featuring a tasting of seasonal, rare, and naturally grown teas along with a selection of paired confections. Guests will also learn more about the practices of a traditional tea ceremony.

The partnership with Reset is just another example of how Auberge is bringing next-level wellness to Telluride.
