Lava sanctuaries, mineral-rich water and steam heat combine to create one of the most unique pampering places around
Pamper yourself to perfection at one of these breathtaking spas that are set to open this year
THE ONE THAT FLOATS
Arctic Bath Hotel & Spa, Sweden
The new Arctic Bath Hotel & Spa in Sweden freezes into the lake in the winter and floats on the surface in the summer. If this doesn’t blow you away, the fact that you can see the Northern Lights from here will.
THE ONE IN VOLCANIC ROCK
The Retreat At Blue Lagoon, Iceland
For a spa with a difference, this subterranean hideaway in Iceland is hard to beat. Carved into the 800-year old volcanic rock at the Blue Lagoon, you’ll find The Retreat hotel and its jawdropping spa. Lava sanctuaries, mineral-rich water and steam heat combine to create one of the most unique pampering places around. Launching in April 2018.
THE ONE IN THE ALPS
Four Seasons Megeve, France
After your ski concierge has organised your day on the slopes, ease those achy muscles with a trip to the Four Seasons Megeve spa. Here they will get you back on your feet with a crack team of masseurs, physiotherapists, osteopaths and beauticians.
THE ONE THAT’S A JOURNEY
Six Senses Bhutan
Why visit one spa, when you can visit five? Six Senses Bhutan comprises five lodges found in each area of the country and each has its own spa. In the pine forests of Thimphu you’ll find the first lodge and wellness centre, then in Punakha Valley a spa and meditation huts will be waiting for you. Travel on to the land of the black-necked cranes – Gangtey, and you’ll discover a spa with two Swedana areas for Ayurvedic steam therapy and then in Bumthang, you’ll discover another spa with hot stone bath facilities. The final spa in Paro is just as blissful thanks to its outdoor sauna and cool dip.
