We’ve rounded up some of the best across the continent in this month's web exclusives, starting with spas in Palm Springs, each detailing its claim to fame, top treatment and most unusual therapy. But this is just the tip of the iceberg—look for more spas, running in our annual Spa Guide in November’s up! magazine. Whether it’s Turkish-style steam baths and Ayrvedic practices to Scandinavian plunge pools and even doggie massage, we’ve got you covered—head to toe.
Winner of three 2011 SpaFinders Reader’s Choice Awards, this Spanish Colonial spa is one of few offering treatment—royal treatment, in fact—to four-legged travellers. Pet-toting guests receive doggie beds and other treats, but there’s also a Canine Suite where Fido can get a one-hour massage—and the therapist will even teach you how! (There are also specialized spa treatments for kids age 8 and up.) For adults, try Sea Creations skin therapy, which uses smooth conch shells to promote exfoliation and circulation.
Surrounded by desert, golden mountains and landscaped grounds, nature is at the doorstep of this spa resort, where all 14 treatment rooms are named and the decor reflective of an indigenous dessert plant. The spa’s ‘Capture the Earth’ theme is incorporated into its treatments; the popular Noni body treatment uses healing properties from the noni plant (an herbal cure-all for many ailments) followed by a full-body coconut bath.
Recently renovated with a massive facelift, this luxury spa bursts with blues and greens along with new state-of-the-art equipment. Soak up stunning mountain views in the heated outdoor sanctuary pool in the courtyard of the 20, 000-sq./ft. desert spa. Families are welcome at the spa—and have a blast in the new Splashtopia outdoor pools, lazy river and waterslides. The resort also boasts a spa experience co-ordinator whose role is solely to tend to guest’s needs.More:
