Here’s our Simplexity Travel Managemnt guide to some of the world’s most luxurious and prestigious spa retreats. Treat your mind and body like a temple and start the new year the right way.
Golden Door Spa & Resort, California
The Golden Door in California is the ultimate destination resort for health and wellness, with a sterling heritage. These 600 private acres were once frequented by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Zsa Zsa Gabor, and here you can hike to a mountain peak and practise yoga at sunrise, learn nutrition and mindfulness from expert practitioners, or choose from a dozen different types of massage.
The resort has even curated its own private collection of Japanese artworks, dating back to the 18th century Edo period.
Chedi Andermatt, Switzerland
As you’d expect at one of the finest hotels in Europe, the 2,400 square-metre, ambiently lit wellness suite at the Chedi Andermatt is a cut above.
Soak up Alpine views from indoor and outdoor pools; bask in a sauna followed by an organic sol steam bath, then head for a deluxe therapy room for treatments using everything from beeswax and olive oil to traditional local remedies. The perfect option if you plan to hit the slopes over New Year.
It’s no surprise that London regularly ranks as one of the best cities for living, but it has to be said that it can get stressful, and with so many world-class restaurants in the capital, it’s also easy to pile on a few unwanted pounds. Which is where ESPA at Corinthia comes in, pioneering a fusion of alternative therapies with modern and traditional treatments, and complimented by Chinese medicine, nutrition and fitness guidance. Generously spaced over four floors, the spa offers guests a vitality pool, amphitheatre sauna, beauty, nail and hair salons. And if you just need a good rest, get some shut-eye in a private sleep pod.
Four Seasons Sayan, Bali
Heading to Bali for some winter sun? Check in to the Four Seasons Sayan, and immerse yourself in the Sacred River Spa. Here you can participate in anti-gravity yoga (no space flight required), water purification ceremonies, and traditional Balinese healing rituals. Fully reset your Chakra with signature treatments and personalised spa programs.
Rancho La Puerta, México
Rancho La Puerta in Baja California is never far from the top of any list of the world’s top destination spas. The modern-day Fitness Revolution began here at La Puerta, and it has never stopped innovating since. The road to physical and spiritual wellness is well-signposted at this peaceful resort under the backdrop of mystic Mt. Kuchumaa, with holistic therapies, healthy organic cuisine at meal times, and a roster of workshops focusing on art, cooking and mindfulness. Sign up for a programme, or just spend your days hiking through this truly majestic landscape to get back in touch with nature and yourself.
Velaa Private Island, Maldives
If there’s one place that forever associated with pure, unadulterated luxury, it must surely be the Maldives, and Velaa Private Island on the Noonu Atoll is the majestic peak. In this secluded tropical paradise, dressed with breathtakingly blue waters and sand as white as the bedsheets, you’ll find a seriously impressive resort with treatments tailored to individual skin types, and a range of Asian-inspired, personalised therapies, which you can enjoy in your private thatched cabin that stands on stilts in the sea.
