Malibu Award-winning luxury fitness and wellness retreat launches 3- and 4-day health programs at a new self-contained property in the Lower Hudson Valley, new York.
MALIBU, California., August 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Ranch, the renowned luxury health and wellness brand with recognized, results-driven fitness programs, is pleased to announce the opening of its premier East Coast destination in the nearby Lower Hudson Valley Smoking Park, New York. Nestled on 550 acres in a historic lakefront estate, The Ranch Hudson Valley is 45 minutes away NYC and immerses guests in nature while experiencing the core elements of The Ranch program—hiking, fitness classes, yoga, deep-tissue massage, and a plant-based diet. Scheduled to open in Summer 2023, The Ranch Hudson Valley will offer 3- and 4-day wellness programs of varying intensities.
“We are thrilled to be expanding to the east coast! The Hudson Valley Ranch is ideally located less than an hour away NYC, Connecticut and New Jersey“, says Alex Glascock, Founder and CEO of The Ranch. “We wanted to respect and meet the continuing demand from our East Coast guests to open a property near them. Because of its idyllic location, we also hope it will become the perfect destination for corporate groups looking to incorporate a more health-conscious approach into their offsite retreats, meetings and incentive travel programs.”
At Ranch Hudson Valley, guests can choose the stay and intensity that fits their schedule and goals. The Ranch 3.0, a 3-day program available Monday through Thursday, offers a gentle immersion in the ranch program with a later wake-up time and active daily schedule of 4 hours of low-impact exercise – centered around a stunning and varied abbreviated 2- Hour hike every morning. The Ranch 4.0 program, a challenging 4-day weekend reset, is offered Thursday through Monday and includes the brand’s award-winning active-daily plan with no options of 6 hours of gentle exercise centered around a breathtaking and varied 4-hour hike Every morning. Afternoons in both programs include naps, strength training, restorative yoga, and a daily massage. As in Malibu, the menu consists of a nutrient-dense, plant-based diet, with many of the ingredients harvested on-site from the organic garden or supplied by local organic farms. The Ranch Private, a personalized program conducted separately from the larger group, will also be available at this location. In addition, corporate groups can use the intimate setting to create a private and customizable health-focused experience for employees or customers.
“As the demand for wellness travel continues to grow, The Ranch offers Hudson Valley an opportunity to diversify our program,” notes Glasscock. “By introducing a less intense version of The Ranch experience through The Ranch 3.0, we hope to attract those who previously may have felt anxious about participating in the program. Alternatively, with The Ranch 4.0, guests can challenge themselves daily over a long weekend with our signature. Regardless of which program they choose, guests can embark on a path to better health and achieve profound physical and mental improvements in their overall well-being.”
Located in the lower Hudson Valleyalong the border of Langsburg and Smoking Park, The Ranch Hudson Valley is set on 500 acres of wooded land on a 40,000 square foot historic estate. Known as the Table Rock Estate, it was built by JP Morgan in 1902 as a wedding gift for his daughter when she married his great-grandson Alexander Hamilton. The detailed stonework and facade were locally quarried and built to perfection by Italian masons, while the interiors boast rich woods, expansive fireplaces and incredible carved plaster ceilings. Local family firm Treestone Architecture and Construction, which built the nearby Valley Rock Inn, has been commissioned to restore and preserve the property’s outstanding architectural features. The property is surrounded by the 4,000-acre Ringwood State Park, giving guests access to hundreds of miles of spectacular hiking trails just steps from their room, while the nearby 40,000-acre Harriman State Park offers a spectacular alternative for morning hikes offers.
Interior decoration and design are carried out by appreciated new York designer, Steven Gambrel, director of SR Gambrel. Known for its unique ability to breathe new life into historic spaces, Gambrel focuses on highly individual interiors and architectural details, with an emphasis on timeless, comfortable designs. On this project, he will oversee the layout and design of all spaces, including the property’s 25 guest rooms, a dining room overlooking the lake and on-site gardens, a spa, and the conversion of the 2,000-square-foot ballroom into a gym for afternoon fitness, yoga – and meditation courses. The property will also include a 5,000 square foot solarium adjacent to the property and overlooking the grounds, with year-round exercise and pool facilities. There will also be an outdoor pool accompanying the property’s lake to allow water activities to be incorporated into the fitness regimen during the summer months.
Ranch Hudson Valley will be open year-round to leisure travelers and corporate groups beginning summer 2023. Visit https://theranchmalibu.com/health-fitness-programs/the-ranch-hudson-valley/ for more information.
