Top 10 Romantic Spas in the World

Willow Stream Spa at The Fairmont Banff Springs

For some, a pristine mountain setting is as romantic as it gets. The 80-mile drive west from Calgary to Banff Springs sets the stage, as the scenery changes from suburbs to grazing cattle to the Canadian Rockies. Soon you'll arrive at the quaint town of Banff Springs and approach the expansive Victorian castle that is The Fairmont Banff Springs. Within the extravagant, 700-room complex, the spectacular Willow Stream Spa is a bi-level, 38,000-square-foot space with one of the most romantic settings for multiple indoor pools in the spa world. A dome tops the architectural marvel, which features a 32-meter lap pool, a cascading waterfall pool and a series of pools of different temperatures, all with views of the alpine wilderness through mammoth window-walls. It's all here: salon, fitness classes, treatments, plus hikes in the mountains or treks to town.
