`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!

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!

There is an adult public bath (known locally as a Badehaus) along with an outdoor pool, too.
