Ever wonder how Hollywood’s biggest stars balance it all? They rely on some of the world’s top gurus to keep them centered and looking their best. But, as you can imagine, those wellness influencers are in high demand and not available to the average Joe. That is unless you book a stay at a hotel that hosts sessions with some of them. Here are three incredible opportunities to get the star treatment, even if you're not a celebrity.

A wellness retreat in Anguilla With Kate Moss’s Wellness Guru

Sisters Nadia and Katia Narain Phillips, celebrity lifestyle gurus to the likes of Kate Moss, Reese Witherspoon, and Sienna Miller and authors of Self Care for the Real World and Rituals for Every Day, will bring their life philosophy to the American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property Belmond Cap Juluca from July 5 to 9. Throughout the four-night program, the duo will share the value of taking time to care for the body and mind to allow for full enjoyment of life as well as ensure balance. Highlights include a self-care workshop on the beach, a one-hour sunrise yoga class, a signature Taino healing salt spa treatment, and a one-hour night kayaking experience.

Yoga in NYC With Gwyneth Paltrow’s Spiritual Guru

The Chatwal in New York, another American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property, launched an exclusive partnership with the spiritual guru for Eddie Stern, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Madonna. Now, guests can use his “Pause & Take a Breath” app during their stay, which features nine yoga lessons set to music by Moby. If you want something more personal, the hotel can arrange a one-on-one appointment with Eddie.

A Nail Treatment in Marrakech With Naomi Campbell’s Pedicurist

Bastien Gonzalez has a celebrity-packed client list that includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Campbell, and Robert De Niro. The reason the nail master is so in demand is because of his unique method. The Bastien Gonzalez nail treatment at the American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property Royal Mansour is performed completely polish-free and dry, a method developed by Gonzalez to give the technicians a better look at the nails. To do this, nails are first trimmed and shaped using a glass file and then buffed using a drill with a diamond-dusted tip. A buffing cream with a mother of pearl powder is then used with a chamois leather buffer to create a healthy shine. You won't even miss polish.
