The Top Five Spa Destinations That Will Blow Your Mind Away
`If your idea of a relaxing vacation is running from one destination to another and catching every possible local attraction that you can find, let us remind you that it will be anything but relaxing. It is definitely great to be a traveler — explore new places, new cultures, and meet people from various background. But when you want to relax on a vacation, being a traveler is not a great idea. Sometimes, even traveling with family becomes stressful. Hence, going all by yourself, with friends, or just with your partner is much recommended. But even more important than that is the place you choose for the vacation. Ideally, a spa resort is perfect! If it is located in a breathtaking location, that adds to the charm of the place. The whole idea is to relax your body, calm your nerves, detoxify your system, and make your aches and pains go away! Sounds like your kind of vacation? Then read more to find out the best places to go!
Golden Door, California, USA
It is hard not to include Golden Door – a classic from our list of best spas. After all, it has been a favorite of celebrities like Zsa Zsa Gabor and Elizabeth Taylor. There are 40 rooms exclusively for women which means that this destination can be perfect for your all-girls-getaway, ladies! The place is known for its privacy and bespoke care. There are 30 miles of private hiking trails that are definitely going to keep you busy during the day, then there is the farm-to-table meals, daily massages, and personal training – sounds too good to be true! The place has rave reviews from the most well-known people from the world of business and technology. If that is not enough, let us tell you that they donate 100% of their profit towards changing children’s lives.
COMO Shambhala Estate, Bali, Ubud
The greenery outside your window and the tranquil river zigzagging through it will itself bring some peace to your mind. This is the view that will greet you when you visit the wellness spa at the luxurious Como Shambhala Estate in Ubud, Bali. The massages here are highly inspired by traditional Ayurveda, and you can also opt for Balinese healing or hydrotherapy if the extensive range of massages doesn’t intrigue you. The resort offers a wellness program for five days, after which you will be offered a taste of detoxifying juice made locally.
Aman Spa, Connaught, London
When we think of a spa, we usually imagine a place away from the bustling cities located amidst nature with stunning views. But Aman Spa breaks all those myths as they have created this lovely sanctuary right in the middle of one of the busiest cities in the world. The place features an ionized pool and five treatment rooms. Various kinds of techniques inspired by the cultures across the globe are infused into their treatments. There is also a separate spa menu for those who want to detoxify their system or for jet-setter businessmen who are fighting jetlag!
Four Seasons Resort, Bora Bora
The views at Four Seasons Bora Bora are so stunning that, even if you do not take any treatment and just sit for hours looking at the turquoise blue water and lush green tropical groves, you will get a new lease in life. However, the treatments here are as good as the views. The scrubs are infused with Tahitian black pearl, and the masks are made of sea algae sourced from the ocean! Impressed, right? Guest bungalows are fully equipped so you don’t have to go anywhere to take your massage. However, the Kahaia suite beats all the others because of its outdoor terrace with views of Mount Otemanu and a private soaking bath!
Schloss Elmau Luxury Spa & Cultural Hideaway, Elmau, Germany
We have saved the best for the last. If you want to splurge on that relaxing vacation of yours, this is the perfect place to go. The Schloss Elmau Luxury Spa is in the Bavarian Alps, almost 100 kilometers from Munich. It is not just a spa but has a hammam and yoga and fitness classes, too! There are six spas in all – three for adults and three for families. There is a kid’s club as well to keep the little hands busy as you take time to soak in the gorgeous views and enjoy a massage. There is an adult public bath (known locally as a Badehaus) along with an outdoor pool, too. Outdoor activities, entertaining workshops, a Michelin-star restaurant, a concert hall, and library — they have thought of everything!
If the places are too far off for you or out of your budget right now, why not start saving for a trip to any of these destinations?
