Ten of the World’s Best Luxury Spa Resorts


10 of the best Spa Hotels in the world


Traditionally people have made a hotel reservation because they want to visit a particular city or be based next to a specific landmark or point of interest like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Eiffel Tower or Wall Street. However in recent years a growing phenomenon has occurred which has bucked this trend significantly.


Increasingly guests are now booking hotels online purely on the strength of the facilities, amenities and services they offer. Whilst this is especially true of golf hotels which tend to attract enthusiasts from around the world who are keen to play on their onsite courses it also equally applies to people who want to immerse themselves in a spot of unadulterated pampering at a top quality five star spa hotel or resort.


Servicing this market is a selection of deluxe hotels that provide a world class holistic spa experience. Offering everything from vigorous Balinese massages performed with heated bamboo rods and rejuvenation therapies that incorporate classic Chinese techniques to Moroccan-titled steam rooms and French techniques that hydrate and purify the skin each one affords guests a unique experience in an exclusive location and/or wonderful natural setting.


Overall there are many great purveyors of a fabulous spa retreat currently vying for the public’s attention but whether it be the design, ambiance and furnishings of the accommodation, dining room and communal spaces like a yoga garden or private beach you are looking for, or the little extras like the exotic treatments, complimentary organic snacks or luxury bedding that is more appealing to you this fantastic selection of ten of the world’s best spa resorts is something you should seriously consider next time you fancy a bit of blissful indulgence.
