We’ve listed some of the best ones below.

  1. The Twelve Apostles – Cape Town, South Africa

This one is going to be a hotel and spa that you definitely won’t want to leave to go back home. The Twelve Apostles is a hotel and a spa that is right beside Table Mountain National Park and the mountain range called the Twelve Apostles. You can take in these amazing views at any time of the day or head inside to enjoy an entirely saltwater pool or get a salt scrub that’s to die for.

  1. Guana Island – British Virgin Islands

When you think about a spa, you probably don’t think about an island. However, whenever you get a cottage on Guana Island in the British Virgin Islands, you can have a massage therapist come to your cottage to get those nasty kinks out of your back. Or you can go even farther and get a private beach, where they will perform the massage for you. How relaxing does that sound?

  1. Purebeauty Salon & Spa – Toronto, Canada

You’re going to find this beauty in the capital of Ontario – Toronto. You can get pretty much anything you want at this salon & spa! You can go for a short massage or a four-treatment package or anything in-between. Plus, if you go up one floor from the salon, you’re going to find a saltwater infinity pool that gives the best views of Toronto. While a massage chair takes 5 to 7 weeks to get to your house, you could get that relaxation ASAP with a visit here.

  1. Essere Spa – Siena, Italy

This is an absolutely stunning spa destination in one of the most beautiful parts of Italy. This spa used to be a wine cellar, but has amazing views of the rolling hills down below. You will be rubbed down with oils and lotions made from Tuscan olive oil, rosemary, and grape seeds – absolutely fantastic!

  1. Willow Stream Spa – Vancouver, Canada

You might not think of Vancouver when you think of spa destinations, but this outdoor spa is one that you definitely won’t forget. It has an infrared sauna and plenty of meditation pods that have great views of the harbor. And in typical Canada fashion, some of the treatments here even include maple syrup as a key ingredient!

  1. Sense – Riviera Maya, Mexico

Right south of Cancun, this private-island spa is one that definitely won’t disappoint. There is a 100% natural spring right at the center of the spa and tons of opportunities to relax and watch the stress melt away in the Mexican sun.

  1. T Spa – Lake Como, Italy

You’ve found luxury when you come to this spa at Lake Como in Italy. You’re going to find an infinity pool with adjustable currents here, along with absolutely stunning views that you can’t find anywhere else. Treatments use natural herbs found right down by the shore of Lake Como.

  1. The Spa at Viceroy Riviera Maya – Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

When you come this spa, you’re going to feel like you’re in the jungle. And that’s on purpose! The Spa at Viceroy Riviera Maya is going to offer you treatments based on ancient Mayan rituals that have been passed down by the years. And of course, you get one of the best oceanfront views money can buy.

  1. Rancho La Puerta – Tecate, Mexico

With 3,000 acres to explore, Rancho la Puerta is one of the most expansive spas on this list. One cool thing about this spa is that in addition to all of the treatments you can choose from, you get to chow down on fresh fruit in-between activities that are available in every health center.

  1. Spa Mukul – Guacalito De La Isla, Nicaragua

There are six private spa suites in Spa Mukul in Nicaragua. There’s a different theme for each one of them and an individual pool to top it all off. You’re not going to be disappointed here.
