Le Mas Candille, France- This luxury spa hotel, located just fifteen minutes away from Cannes, is home to the very Shisedo spa to be opened in Europe. Shisedo, a famous Japanese cosmetics company, specialises in advanced products for the body and hair, so this is the place to come to for the very best hair and skin treatments in the world. The rest of the hotel doesn’t disappoint either, with elegant design, outstanding service, and a peaceful location in the quiet village of Mougins.
Luxury spa hotels can be found by the thousands around the world. Holiday accommodations at a resort can be designed in many ways, and many depend on the culture and country where they are located. For example, a luxury holiday accommodation in Hawaii may be designed with tropical themes. You can find luxury spa hotels all around Maui, Oahu, Kauai, and the Big Island that are both exotic and beautiful, all surrounded by gorgeous landscapes and perfect guest suites.
One of the great things about luxury spa hotels is that they can be absolutely anywhere. As a result, city-slickers can access weekend spa breaks without even leaving their own city, while more long-haul travelers can seek out treatment whether they’re heading to Thailand, Turkey, or Tonga.
A short stroll from the Imperial Palace, the modern and seductive Mandarin Oriental lavishes impressive panoramas on its visitors. From the 48th floor check-in lounge to the outstanding ‘onsen’ (bubbly traditional Japanese spa) one floor below. Steam in the hot waters or sauna rooms, then cool off in the ice-fountain outside. Just don’t miss those prime city views! In the bedrooms, full length windows bring the city right up close. High-tech touches abound, but you can still relax here thanks to the complimentary yoga mats and Aromatherapy Associates bath products.
Berkeley Hotel, London, UK-Contemporary elegance is the best way to describe the beautiful Berkeley in Knightsbridge. Escape the pressures (and pollution) of the big smoke with a relaxing rooftop swim beneath the stars or one of the infamous Pret-a-Portea afternoon teas. What could be more relaxing than haute-design treats, such as Chanel lime cakes and Christian Dior pink chocolate biscuits? The legendary hotel is also top of the list for treatments; soothe yourself with a delicious LaStone massage or traditional Balinese therapies.
Floatation is another deeply relaxing treatment that allows the visitor to feel completely weightless. Unlike in a pool or ocean, spa floatation means you don’t need to make any effort to stay afloat, allowing you to switch off and relax. Luxury spa hotels will contribute to this by setting the mood for unwinding – a combination of lights, sounds and variations of temperature to allow deep relaxation.
Spa hotels have been extremely popular with hen parties for many years, and now the stag party is discovering the benefits of a weekend break filled with relaxation in the run up to the big day – at a luxury spa hotel this can be combined with an amazing meal and more than a few glasses of champagne, along with that spa glow. Golf weekend breaks can also be combined with a trip to the spa at one of the luxury hotels that offer both a fantastic golf course and top-class spa.
