Top Spa Resorts

Luxury Spa Resorts: If your idea of a trip to the spa is a pedicure and a facial... you aren't going to the right spa. From bamboo lemongrass body scrubs to peppermint sea twists, spa treatments are more innovative than ever. Of course you can get straightforward treatments like Swedish massage but then you've got holistic treatments like Bio Energetic Transduction Aided Resonance (sound therapy) and Thalassotherapy (water therapy). In addition to searching for a wide range of standard, as well as progressive, treatment options, our search for the best destination spas went beyond the service menu. The top-notch spas that made the cut each offer a unique spa and vacation experience. Whether you want to wash away impurities in Italy, immerse yourself in spiritual goodness at the Green Valley Spa in the Utah wilderness, unwind at a 19-th century cottage in lush Georgia countryside, or relax in a seaside villa at the Sanibel Harbour Spa, you'll find what you're looking for at one of these world-class spas.

While some may think of spas as vegetarian wastelands where strict trainers insist you load up on granola, tofu and wheat-grass juice-the stereotype is a misnomer. The Barnsley Gardens Resort & Spa in Adairsville, Georgia have a beer garden where they serve German beer, sausages and pretzels, while the Masseria San Domenico Resort & Spa serves fresh fish and shellfish from the Adriatic Coast.

Spas that made our list offer something for men and women, like the Carefree Resort & Villas in Carefree, Arizona. Their Men's Facial is specifically designed for men to help prevent or relieve razor burn, ingrown hair, and sensitivity. The treatment also includes a relaxing face, head, neck and shoulder massage (don't worry; your secret is safe with us). The Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa in Birmingham, Alabama made our list for their amazing spa services and 8,191-yard championship golf course. We also liked the The Hills Health Ranch (don't get the wrong idea guys; there's nothing wimpy about hiking in the Canadian wilderness). During the winter, The Hills is a winter ski resort with over 100 miles of community based cross-country ski trails and during the summer, guests use those same trails for hiking and biking. They also have an indoor pool two hydrotherapy pools and cardio weight training equipment.

And in case you were wondering, every spa on our list offers the utmost in luxurious accommodations-after all, you're there to get spoiled and pampered.
