SHA Wellness Clinic, one of the best detox spas in Europe and among the world's top medical spas, is a white-marble, glass-walled modernist structure that rises like a multi-storied ocean liner above the hilltop where guests delight in vistas of Spain’s Sierra Helada Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. Clientele on a minimum week-long detox campaign meet with the expert who designs individualized macrobiotic meals — in fact, the clinic is devoted to the macrobiotic lifestyle. Detox programs include macrobiotic cooking classes (in English) and a customized health plan after your stay. Water is both a design and a wellness element with therapeutic pools, water beds and a waterfall. For fitness, the spa offers yoga, tai chi, Pilates and walks (one to a scenic lighthouse), nordic walking, personal training, total body conditioning and stretching. There are à la carte spa treatments as well as laser, acupuncture, cellular regeneration and mesotherapy. Non-stop flights to Valencia and high-speed trains to Alicante make it easy to reach from New York.
