The Pearl Laguna( THE PEARL LAGUNA )
Fans say the week of hiking, yoga, massage, mediation tai chi and cleansing spa menus at this 12-room retreat in Laguna Canyon changes their habits for months to come. The owners are well-respected yoga teachers Geo and Katresha Moskios, who emphasize customizing the experience. Peaceful white rooms with fresh flowers and hand-made sinks, an infrared sauna and well-equipped weight room round out the place.
