Though few exceptional hotels boast the exact same amenities—some house Michelin-star eateries while others feature multi-story fitness centers—most renowned resorts have a spa with unique treatments on offer. After all, mineral-infused facials and crystal detoxes are highly coveted luxuries that make any vacation that much better. That said, there’s no reason why residential buildings can’t offer wellness experiences on par with those at some of the world’s most enticing hotels. Fortunately, ultra contemporary high-rises across the States—along both coasts—have caught on, infusing the spaces with extraordinary wellness amenities.

Opened in the fall in 2021, The Park Santa Monica celebrates the outdoors in a big way–specifically on the one-acre rooftop park that’s divided into four distinct sections. The first is the Field, a sprawling lawn space designed for event programming, movie screenings, and fitness classes. There’s also an outdoor fitness area that includes plyometrics, HIIT training, battle ropes, ladder walls, and torque tanks. The second section, the Garden, encompasses a full jungle of trees, flowers, and plants, creating an amenable environment for the work from home pocket stations. The third section, called the Oasis, features a heated pool, cabanas, lounge chairs, a game area, and a private bar. The last section, the Farm, comprises a curated fruit and vegetable garden, sunset swings, a family-style outdoor kitchen and dining area, a dog park, and grooming stations. The Park Santa Monica residents will likely be spending more time on the roof than in their homes.

San Francisco’s Chorus is home to City Ballet and Chorus Hall—a new 227-seat venue for the performing arts, and the residents have a front-row seat. Complete with panelized appliances, retro-inspired SMEG ranges, wide-plank hardwood floors, and first-of-its-kind 20G internet, the residences are the epitome of high living. Aside from the fitness center, which hosts 11 rotating complimentary group classes per week (lead by former San Francisco 49er linebacker, Corey Lemonier), Chorus’ claim to fame is the American Ninja Warrior-inspired training course that’s outfitted with an eight-foot warped wall and an octagon-shaped arena for performance training with Lemonier.
