Top 10 Most Relaxing Spas in the World

Updated on July 10, 2012

The summertime buzz just makes you want to lay out on the sand and start your much-deserved 2 month vacation. Between the shining sun and the warm temperature, it’s impossible to deny yourself some relaxation time. In the spirit of chilling out until you turn into a vegetable, here are the Top 10 Most Relaxing Spas in the World:

1. Miraval Resort and Spa

You’d never expect to find this place in Tucson, Arizona. You also wouldn’t expect it to be a favorite to Oprah! This resort helps their guests conquer everything from insomnia to quick weight loss. Sounds more like heaven to me?

2. La Reserve Genève

This lovely retreat is located in Geneve, Switzerland, one of the greenest cities in Europe. It is known mostly for its 80-minute Better Aging Massage, an experience that fights muscle tension and boosts your blood flow. Just saying those words relaxed me.

3. Solage Calistoga

This is your chance to soak in a mud bath that will amp up your circulation and provide thorough detoxification. Once you think you’ve reached your limit of relaxation, head to Napa Valley and sample the fine wines from California’s vineyards.

4. Blue Lagoon

National Geographic considers this spa one of the wonders of the world. Their geothermal pool looks like your swimming in a cloud, while soothing dry skin and aching muscles. You can also experience a Blue Lagoon facial that is designed for different skin types. Oh my, I wish.

5. Little Palm Island

This resort’s name doesn’t lie, as it truly is on its own island in Florida. Relax in a milk and honey wrap or treat yourself to a ritual bath experience. While you get ready to soak into a tub with rose petals, choose between a bath that caters to peace, love, happiness or detox.

6. Rancho Pescadero

Practice a local Baja, Mexican ritual by steaming out toxins in the eucalyptus-infused sauna. I think everyone could use a little bit of this!

7. Beverly Hills Hotel

I’m sure the Beverly Hills housewives frequent this place often. In between the celebrity spottings, enjoy a Pink Palace manicure and pedicure that includes 60-minutes of exfoliation and massage while shaping your nails to perfection.

Enjoy an 80 minute experience with a Balinese message, mud body mask and an aromatherapy bath all for the small price of $99. This serene location is far from Miami’s party scene but close enough to enjoy the beautiful weather.
