Over the past years spas have become more and more popular, both as favorite vacation destinations or as mere one day remedy luxury retreats, providing working people with a small oasis in the heart of the city jungle. These luxury havens offer all those in need, a chance to relax and come to terms with their body and spiritual balance once more.

 Evidently the ideal spa facilities are those luxury spas immersed in calm and verdant surroundings, where the stress of the city left behind is merely a distant memory.

            These luxury spa resorts offer accommodation, five star restaurants, treatments and multiple activities, complete with first class equipment in an idyllic atmosphere where luxury abounds.         

In addition to the regular facials, massages, manicures, pedicures, waxing, electrolysis and aromatherapy, these luxury spas propose more advanced treatments such as body wraps, skin exfoliation, and body scrubs. You can of course, if you are more into the natural element, opt for those natural luxury spas that offer hydrotherapy with hot springs, mud baths, saunas and steam baths; these are perfect remedies for those in search of a return to the essential being and natural health therapies.

In some luxury spas you may also benefit from the advice of a dietician who will put together a personal program for you in conjunction with the massage therapists and aestheticians. Amongst the more valuable massages provided are reflexology, hot stone massages and acupressure; these will effectively solve any health or stiffness problems you may have.

There are also very specific therapies, which you can only find in particular places such as the Dead Sea. The luxury spas in the Dead Sea offer unique remedies for arthritis and rheumatism and other more specific skin problems, by using the extremely rich mineral properties found only in the Dead Sea and nowhere else in the world.

In the best luxury spa resorts you will find appeasing and lush settings, a tropical atmosphere providing an intimate and inviting retreat in which you may experience carefully created treatments personally conceived for you.

Some of the best luxury spa resorts can be found in the United States itself, you may choose a luxury spa resort with your favorite theme, be it exotic, colonial style, elegant or metropolitan, or you might even choose amongst the luxury beach resorts, mountain resorts, health farms or even wine theme spa resorts. It is important to choose the type of luxury spa you feel the most at ease in and one which reflects your personality; this choice with the addition of the dedicated treatments will do wonders to your body and mind.
