Top 5 Health Spas Around the World

Day at the Spa

Like most people, you are probably long overdue for a vacation. You have been working long hours, taking care of your family, and worrying about bills. So you start planning your trip and realize that even that can be stressful. You have to pick the right time to take off from work, you have to travel, and the costs are always a concern.

After all this agony, it makes sense that your destination should be a place designed to make you forget about all of your worries. The following health spas are exactly what the doctor ordered. They are the best in the world at rejuvenating the spirit and preparing you to once again face the real world at your best.

Kamalaya Koh Samui – Thailand

Buddhist monks are renowned for their peaceful meditation and focus. The locations of their temples were chosen for their isolation and their beauty. Sounds like a perfect place for a health spa and you do not even have to take a vow of silence. Kamalaya Koh Samui is a wellness retreat and spa located on the island of Koh Samui and is based around a cave once used by Buddhist monks. Surrounded by a lagoon with white sand beaches, tropical gardens, and streams with waterfalls, this spa offers customize treatments that combine both Eastern and Western healing techniques. They offer spa therapy, detoxification programs, fitness, and holistic medicine, all guaranteed to make you forget your troubles.

Grotta Giusti – Italygrotta giusti

Sticking with the cave theme, our next spa, located in Tuscany, is a natural spring that has been used for therapy for centuries. The natural spring waters are believed to have healing properties and definitely must be tried. The steam from the hot springs is used to combat sinus and respiratory issues. There are also more modern therapies available such as massages, body scrubs and peels, and nutrition programs designed for weight loss and detoxification. This center has also developed its own form of osteopathy, which focuses on the body’s muscles and bones.

Les Sources de Caudalie – FranceLes Sources de Caudalie France

Next on our list is a spa that has embraced its surroundings and incorporated its natural offerings into its treatments. Located in Bourdeaux, Les Sources de Caudalie uses the grapes that are grown there for more than just wine. They offer vinotherapie, which uses grape extracts, called polyphenols, to strengthen blood vessels and enhance micro-circulation, thereby slowing the aging process. The extracts are used in massages and wraps and of course you will be able to ingest them as well while enjoying your treatment.

Golden Rock Retreat – IndonesiaGolden Rock Retreat

Location is the key to choosing the perfect health spa and you cannot find a more idyllic spot than the island of Bali. Golden Rock Retreat overlooks a secluded bay and offers programs designed to cleanse your body and mind. Even though the retreat specializes in cleanses, they also offer a full array of services including herbal steam saunas, massage treatments, and bio-magnetic therapy. This retreat prides itself on its integration with the community. Guests can take a trip out to sea with local fisherman and participate in ceremonies at nearby villages. Golden Rock Retreat is a true escape.

California Health & Longevity Institute – United StatesCalifornia Health and Longevity Institute

We head back to the states for our number one ranked health spa. Located in Westlake Village, just north of Los Angeles, the California Health & Longevity Institute specializes in “lifestyle rejuvenation.” Their certified consultants will work with you to design a wellness plan that will help you accomplish your goals. Whether you want to reduce stress, improve your fitness, detoxify your system, or simply improve your eating habits, the experts here will supervise and set you on a path to healthier living. The institute includes a complete medical facility that will perform diagnostics and medical assessments in order to personalize your treatment. Oh, and they are partnered with the neighboring Four Seasons Hotel, so your living accommodations won’t be too shabby either. If you are looking to explore a career in health and wellness, take a trip to these rejuvenating oases and mull over becoming a massage therapist, or acupuncturist.
