Health and Wellness brand Sensei is opening a retreat in the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains, in Rancho Mirage. The brand’s first retreat is on the secluded Hawaiian island of Lānaʻi at the Four Seasons Hotel. Their newest retreat, Sensei Porcupine Creek, sits on a 230-acre private estate and is expected to open in early 2022.
The Sensei brand was founded by billionaire Larry Ellison, who also co-founded software giant Oracle and owns nearly the entirety of the island of Lānaʻi. Sensei has broken down its wellness plan into three paths — move, nourish, and rest — which it bills as “The Sensei Way.”
“Sensei is a trusted source for immersive wellbeing, given we have best-in-class practitioners and our approach is rooted in science and research and backed by technology,” Kevin Kelly, CEO of Sensei said in a press release.
Sensei Porcupine Creek is the brand’s first stand-alone luxury retreat experience, and will feature hotel rooms in the former estate house, private villas, a private golf course, tennis facilities, a spa, and nutrition and movement programs, among other luxury wellness programs. Like the brand’s retreat set-up in Hawaii, Sensei will continue to collaborate with Japanese restaurant Nobu to offer healthy, unique cuisine to its Porcupine Creek guests.
“Now, with Sensei Porcupine Creek, we have the opportunity to offer our programming in a stunning luxury setting that takes advantage of its majestic desert location, which has long been a destination for health and wellness seekers,” says Kelly.
If we’ve learned anything from Sensei’s Lānaʻi retreat, it’s that when it comes to luxury, the “Sensei Way” knows what’s up. To be honest, we don’t need all their science-backed evidence to know that a luxury retreat in the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains is ultra-relaxing. We get it. Sign us up for a day at the spa and a private tennis lesson. Oh, we’d like our hand-rolled sushi delivered to our room, please.
