The Best Destination Spas

Destination spas aren't just pampering palaces. They address the whole person through comprehensive life enhancement programs, from weight loss to smoking cessation to stress management and life coaching. The folks running destination spas know that taking charge of one's life means more than a massage or facial, so they offer classes in anything from yoga to writing. Some feature acupuncture, reiki and other healing modalities. Others focus on hiking or visualization techniques. From the Berkshires to the Red Rocks of Utah, the following 10 properties have consistently won awards. GAYOT's own experts agree: These are truly the best destination spas in the country.
