What would be a good word for rest and relaxation?

rest and relaxation
repo ak detant

a little rest and relaxation
yon ti kanpo
yon ti detant
yon ti repi

How would it be best to say "House of Rest and Relaxation" for the name of a guest house?  Thanks.
I am thinking you could say:

Mezon detant
Mezon detant ak repo
Kay pou detant ak lwazi
Mezon lwazi (where lwazi means "leisure")
Kay pou lwazi
Mezon repo
Kay pou repo
Mezon konje (where konje means "time off")
Mezon serenite
Yon kay pou serenite

Mezon retrèt or Kay pou Retrèt (are retirement homes)
