Find your inner om at LA's most secluded private retreat.
Renew with a view: The Chakra Garden, at new, holistic hideaway Aja Malibu, showcases spa-tacular views of the Santa Monica Mountains and Pacific Ocean.
In this age of ever-buzzing smartphones and automatically refreshing news feeds, the ultimate luxury is not checking in but checking out. To get away from it all this spring, escape the city for Aja Malibu, a new, sprawling 23-acre property in the Santa Monica Mountains. Founded by Australian mystic and artist Inannya Magick, the holistic retreat centers on “The Magick Process”: a mission to focus on the self by restoring and balancing mind, body, and spirit through a series of programs and amenities, including hikes, meditation sessions, spa treatments, and daily plant-based meals prepared by a private chef. Housing only seven guests at a time, the uber-isolated getaway is a modern-day secret garden with sweeping ocean views, replete with one of the last real attainable luxuries: the complete disconnect. $10,000 per person for an all-inclusive seven-night stay, including up to 28 spa treatments. 1821 Latigo Canyon Road, Malibu, 310-457-7024
