The Best Spa Hotels in the World

For many people, the entire reason for holing up in a luxury hotel is to get away from it all. And although we agree that room service and plush bedding offer a great means of escape, there's nothing like a spa to erase the cares of the world. These days, most top hotels have spas, and among the finest are properties that feel like spas themselves. It is these hotels that we focus on here — places where the guest rooms, restaurants and even public spaces feel like an extension of soothing treatment rooms. Is there anything more relaxing than having a massage or facial without battling traffic on the way home afterward? This is just one of the many indulgent benefits of the selections in GAYOT's top ten spa hotels around the world.
