Here are 5 Fabulous Spa Treatments from Around the World, some real treats! Part of the recipe for a successful, relaxing spa treatment is the suspension of belief and separation from reality as you are transported from the stresses of family life and the 9-5 job to a world of elegant indulgence. Here we explore five beautifully exotic locations for fabulous spa treatments around the world.
Iceland’s Blue Lagoon
Located 50 miles from the Icelandic capital city of Reykjavik is the Blue Lagoon spa, a natural retreat inviting guests to submerge themselves in six million litres of geothermal water. The naturally occurring geographical features within the lava fields of the Reykjanes produce waters which are rich in minerals. Thousands of visitors return every year, swearing by the healing and relaxing properties of the retreat.
The unique resort is positioned directly between two continents as the Euro-Asian and American tectonic plates meet underneath the Blue Lagoon. The comprehensive resort offers a full range of in-water massages and beauty treatments to help guests make the most of the relaxing properties of the location.
Under the Indian Ocean
If the paintings of seascapes and dolphin noises CD of your local spa relaxes you sufficiently, the underwater Lime Spa at Huvafen Fushi in the Maldives could well be your heaven on (or under) Earth. The spa is located under the Indian Ocean with large windows overlooking the peaceful sea floor. Guests can enjoy a wide range of treatments as they look out on sealife in their natural environment.
The serene setting is reflected in the interior design of the spa with sea sponge-style cushions and coral flourishes making up the décor.
1,000 Leagues out to Sea
Providing complete and total escape, the Solarium aboard the Quantum Class of cruise ships from Royal Caribbean can be enjoyed hundreds of miles out to sea. The adults-only spa offers comprehensive seascapes across the unspoilt azure of the seas and boasts a large number of therapeutic and relaxing treatments for guests. Royal Caribbean officials have cruised the world looking for skilled practitioners of local treatments and disciplines to instil knowledge, expertise and charm throughout the spa’s proceedings.
The next Quantum Class ship to launch (in spring 2015) will be the Anthem of the Seas. Cruise1st UK has started selling holidays aboard this ship, which also features spa-inspired Junior Suite cabins.
Offering unique spa treatments as well as physical and spiritual healing, the Integratron in Southern California’s Mojave Desert is unlike anywhere else in the world. Developed by aeronautical engineer and UFO-believer, George Van Tassel, the Integratron is an acoustically-perfect tabernacle sitting atop a powerful geomagnetic vortex.
The unique positioning and build of the spa provides sonic healing sessions unlike anywhere else in the world.
Swiss Mountain Village
The Tschuggen Bergoase resort in the Swiss region of Arosa is a geometric resort built into snow-capped mountains. Built up of glass protrusions emanating from the foot of the mountain, the spa offers uncompromised, stunning views of the rugged terrain. The simplistic design creates a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy the wide range of spa and medical wellness treatments including detoxifying mud therapy.
