Relaxation, pampering, luxury – what’s not to like about a spa? The best spa resorts offer all three in spades, letting you come back from your break rejuvenated and revitalised. While you can work on wellness and even take on treatments close to home, getting away and into the sun can work its own wonders. Read on for our look at three of the best spa resorts you’ll find in Europe and elsewhere … |
Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa
Located beachside on Portugal’s sparkling Atlantic coast, Vila Vita is a jewel in Algarve’s already sparkling crown. It emphasises the importance of full and complete wellbeing, extending to the body, mind and soul. Sign up and your personal coach will provide you with an individual nutrition and workout plan, including unique features such as vacuum therapy to make sure you get the most benefits from your exercise. What’s more, Vila Vita has some of the best food and drink in the region, including a 2-Michelin-star restaurant and a cellar with over 10,000 bottles of wine.
Lefay Resort & Spa Lago di Garda
Close to Venice and in the shadow of the Dolomite Mountains, Lake Garda is one of northern Italy’s most renowned and beautiful locations. Guests at Lefay are encouraged to exercise outdoors, making the most of the clean and clear air and beautiful, lush scenery. On top of that, its five relaxation areas, six types of sauna, gym and garden are enough to make this one of the best spa resorts on the continent.
Grotto Bay Resort
For our last featured resort, we move outside of Europe and take the long journey west across the Atlantic. We’re not going all the way to the Americas, though. Instead, we’re stopping on Bermuda, the small British-occupied island in the northwestern part of the ocean. Here, in Hamilton Parish, you’ll find Grotto Bay, a beautiful, world-class resort offering massages and other treatments in its Natura Spa.
Several features make Grotto Bay stand out. First, you can receive your treatments in a variety of settings all around the resort’s grounds. Second, the largely untouched cave system around the hotel invites you in for the unique ‘Serenity Cave Experience’. Third, each room comes with a complementary serving of rum cake! All in all, Grotto Bay is a hidden gem, set on a beach in a really interesting and often overlooked part of the world.
We hope this look at some of the best spa resorts in the Western world has given you some ideas for your next break. If crystal clear waters, sun and sensitive therapeutic treatment are what you’re looking for, any of these resorts would make a perfect choice! So take your pick and book up now for an unforgettable, indulgent holiday.
