10 Spas To Put On Your Bucket List

The holidays are coming up and that can be a super stressful time. So, if you need to take some vacation time just to get away with your girls (and take a break from all of the family), I wouldn’t blame you at all. If you weren’t planning on taking time for yourself this holiday season— you might change you mind after you see these amazing spas.

From Thailand to Utah, there are a wide variety of amazing spas. You can choose one in a different country or one that’s stateside and a little closer to home. It all just depends on how far you’re willing to travel for some R&R. Check out these 10 spas that are as gorgeous to look at as they are soothing and get ready to book a flight, stat.

1. The Ritz Chanel Spa (Paris, France)

So, this spa isn’t completed, yet, but is reportedly already taking reservations. And since it’s inspired by Chanel and all, you’re definitely going to want to get your name on that list. Besides, Paris is always a good idea, right?


2. Silavadee Pool Spa (Koh Samui, Thailand)

With treatments ranging from herbal body scrubs to a volcanic stone massage, you’re sure to get pampered at this beautiful island oasis spa.

3. A. Spa (Santorini, Greece)

The view alone is enough to calm you, but go ahead and get an hour long massage while you’re there, why don’t you? I don’t know anyone who could say “no” to that.

4. Ritz-Carlton Spa (Maui, Hawaii)

All of this spa’s remedies are based on local herbs, fruits and plants, so you can feel more like a local while you relax. Skip the sightseeing and just pay a visit here instead.


5. The Spa Hotel Healdsburg (Healdsburg, California)

Specializing in locally sourced “Farm to Spa” treatments, you can feel good about the natural products being put all over your body. A facial using all local ingredients such as honey and more? That sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

6. Velaa Private Island (The Maldives)

Want your massage to take place in a cottage built over the sea? You can have that here. With methods catered to your skin-type, this seems like the ultimate pampering experience.

8. Amangiri (Canyon Point, Utah)

You wouldn’t think of Utah as being a top spa destination, but with holistic practices influenced by the Navajo and the gorgeous desert scenery, you’ll definitely see this state in an entirely different way. Plus, you wouldn’t even have to leave the U.S. to experience some well-deserved relaxation.


9. Como Shambala Estate (Gianyar, Bali)

Focused around overall well-being, this spa has nutritionists and outdoor yoga as a part of your stay. Bali seems like the perfect place to start improving your overall self, wouldn’t you agree?
