Here you’ll find our reviews of destination spa retreats all over the world, many of which are luxurious, have full-blown spa facilities and offer the attentions of experts such as naturopaths or a dedicated medical team as well as oodles of pampering and holistic rituals and treatments. Some are general wellness spas, others are specialist medical spas you can attend to cure a major health issue. Also check out our reviews of more humble holistic hideaways. If it’s a more casual spa hotel you’re after, we’ve also reviewed a clutch of relaxing hotels.
