Sometimes, all you need is a darn good pamper, or somewhere to relax, switch off, and indulge your sybaritic side. Here you’ll find our reviews of relaxing hotels around the world – the best of which can ease your body and mind into chilled-out oblivion.
Some of these are spa hotels and spa resorts in beautiful locations with proper grown up spas, some are city spas that provide a retreat in busy times, some are hotels that offer treatments either in-room or in a simple treatment room, and a handful are just quiet places to retreat without any treatments at all.
At Queen of Retreats we believe that the perfect hotel for a spa break doesn’t yet exist – but some of these come darn close. If you’re after a fully immersive retreat experience, read our reviews of spa retreats and holistic hideaways, many of which offer pamper packages.
