Destination Relaxation: Find a destination spa that fits your personality and personal preferences!

The goal of a destination spa is as varied as the individual who wishes to find one and the culture in which it is found.  Here you will find our top ten favorite spas in the US and around the World in four categories.  The first category is Weight Loss and Wellness.  The second category is Adventure and Fitness.  The third category is Family Friendly. The fourth category is Luxury Resort and All Inclusive Vacations.  Some of our favorite spas may be on the lists more than once.  Make sure you take a look at our find a spa directory (coming soon).

The first category is designed to provide a thought evoking list of Spa facilities dedicated to weight loss and wellness.  Most of these recommendations are based on time honored weight loss programs with balanced wellness as a central theme.  Several of the listings may focus their attention on over all wellness and believe that weight loss follows.  The programs are offered from a wide range of facility types, from modern luxury to rustic.  Each of these spas are discussed in detail, click on the title heading for the category and location that you are most interested in for more information about each of the spas listed.

The second category is for the adventurer who wants to be pampered with massage and have fitness equipment and possibly professional trainers available during their excursion.  The overall goal is to provide a list of spas with adventure and fitness focused activities such as hiking, kayaking, biking, diving, cave exploration and much more.  Along with the traditional educational and professional treatments found at a dedicated destination spa.

The third category is focused on the family, these spa destinations provide services and activities for kids. Some facilities and programs are not designed to accommodate children and can be adult only.  This list is created to help one find top rated spas that are kid friendly.

The fourth category is for individuals looking for either luxury and or an all-inclusive spa vacation package.  It can become over whelming when looking for a fabulous spa vacation destination that offers both a room with a view and professional spa treatments.  We all have our own personal tastes and preferences, each of these chosen facilities have something special to offer.
