7 Spa Retreats, Spa Vacations, Spa Resorts for Your Wellness
Welcome to this collection of spa resorts, spa retreats and spa vacations for health and wellness.
My friend Daisy and I started dreaming of having our very own health and spa wellness center when we launched our wellness programs just recently. Knowing full well the benefit of holistic wellness and the need to have a get-away, a retreat of sorts to refresh the mind, rejuvenate the spirits and to reawaken the senses to the beauty of nature and the divine presence of all that is, I started browsing around for the best wellness centers, spa resorts and spa retreats.
I have truly enjoyed my web hopping scouting around for spa centers. This is my first collection and I hope to find more. I have now included in my bucket list the desire to be able to go to these various health spas and experience first hand the legacy of wellness that they offer to different individuals.

2. Tennessee Fitness Spa
The Tennessee Fitness Spa boasts of Southern Hospitality. I’ve often wondered about Southern Hospitality and someday would want to travel and experience this first hand. But more than that, I was captivated by the fact that this place is located at the Tennessee beautiful and historic Natural Bridge. This Natural Bridge is the only known double-span natural bridge formation in the world.
The chalet-style accommodations are clean and comfortable and affordable. Guests have options to stay in a quad, their most affordable room, for as low as $775 per week. Of course, double, private rooms or the penthouse are very much available too. The rate mentioned above already includes a full schedule of fitness activities plus three healthy meals of course.

Look at this young lady sunbathing on their sundeck. This is located on outside of their pool building with misters to cool you on hot summer days.
The last photo is the water wheel. This is near the ice cave and their office. Water lovers can sit on a bench by the water wheel and listen to the ripples of water that will definitely calm your soul.

The words practically leapt from the web… Find yourself between a rock and a soft place. Curious I saw stunning red rock cliffs, black lava bed gardens and the desert inviting you to come and see this place. Of course, the imagination has begun as one can see oneself hiking through those magnificent rock structures or rock climbing and biking.
