A new resort opens in Darien this weekend. Minty Wellness Restaurant, Hotel and Spa is a first of its kind venture in the area.
The 1.5-million dollar facility offers raw and vegan meals, and the latest in spa treatments and therapy. It’s all designed to promote – well, wellness.
Co-owner Linda Tyczka says the idea for the resort came from a personal revelation.
"I had some health problems in my early fifties," says Tyczka. "And I decided that I needed to make a change...I discovered that what you eat is really what gives you better health. And that just motivates you to look into 'What else is out there? What else can I do?'"
Tyczka has a background in nursing and says that’s why she’s passing on the wellness to others.
Minty Wellness is on Church Road in Darien. The hotel, restaurant and spa can all be enjoyed separately or all rolled together for a weekend getaway.
