Must-See Spas From Around The World


Very few things define luxury and indulgence quite like a leisurely soak in a spa. The only thing better than enjoying some quality time in your own personal hot tub would perhaps to be enjoying these hot tubs and spas while in an exotic location.

Experiencing new sights, foods, and cultures — followed by a long soak in a hot tub and endless pampering — could very well be the pinnacle of relaxation and bliss.

If you’ve been thinking about traveling to a new city or even country, then you definitely need to keep these four best spas on your radar.

1. Chiva-Som (Hua Hin, Thailand)

Nestled in the seaside resort town of Hua Hin, Chiva-Som has earned itself quite a reputation. People from across the globe flock to this incredible spa resort, and celebrities have also been known to pay it a visit.

Not only do they offer a wide array of treatments to help promote relaxation and wellness, they also offer only the most delicious fare in fine dining.

2. Euphoria Retreat (Mystras & Peloponnese, Greece)

Some people go to spas to enjoy deep tissue massages and endless facials. Others go for the food. However, those who turn to Euphoria Retreat are looking for something a little different.

This spa offers one of the most remarkable wellness programs, allowing guests to not only relax like royalty, but also train like it, too. If your goal is to be in the best shape possible, while in some of the most stunning locations in the world, then you don’t want to miss this spa retreat.

3. Golden Door (San Marcos, California, USA)

When it comes to glamour, nothing compares to the Golden Door spa in San Marcos. It has seen high-profile guests like Elizabeth Taylor and Zsa-Zsa Gabor, but its clientele doesn’t define it.

Instead, its dedication to creating a relaxing and soothing atmosphere helps set the tone for this amazing retreat. Not only does it help promote wellness and health, it also helps take the guesswork out of the agenda by providing guests with a fully planned out schedule upon arrival.

4. Sundance Resort (Sundance, Utah, USA)

Very few spas compare to Sundance Resort in Sundance, Utah. Green living and sustainability are the cornerstones of this rustic retreat nestled in the fork of the Provo Canyon.

Guests at this retreat can enjoy both skiing during the wintertime and hiking in the summer, and of course, the cuisine is wholly unrivaled.

Once you’re done wearing yourself out on the slopes or on the trails, why not experience a massage or one of the many body treatments they provide? You’ll never want to go back home!

Living the Spa Life at Home

Of course, not everyone can get the time off from work or personal responsibilities to escape to a spa retreat for a week. For those of you who wish to recreate the indulgence of a spa vacation, why not create your own at home?

The addition of one of the many options of Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, Nordic Hot Tubs and C-Series Hot Tubs can turn your backyard into your own personal oasis. Simply grab some plush towels (such as 100% Egyptian cotton) and some candles and you can transform your own home into a place for pampering.

If you and your significant other are looking to make the most of a staycation, you can take turns giving one another a soothing massage. The addition of rich oils, such as jojoba or almond, can help ease the aches out of your muscles.

And when you’re done, grab some chilled champagne and head out to your own hot tub in your backyard. While a long vacation may not be practical for everyone, the addition of your own personal hot tubs to your home is a simple way to treat yourself today!
