The Daily Navigator strives to help you make the best decisions in travel. While we produce content according with strict editorial integrity this post may contain references to partner products. Here’s a full explanation for how our team makes money .

In your early twenties, traveling can be wild. There’s always another shot to say yes to, weird life-threatening adventure to chase, or hangovers to sweat off on the beach.

But by 29, all those reckless decisions are starting to creak deep in your bones, and saying yes to that pals weekend in Cabo starts to sound more like getting a voluntary root canal than a frolic for old times’ sake. Before you know it, your annoyingly healthy friend that drinks Kombucha on a night out’s health retreat offers sounds like more of a necessity than anything else. 

We’re here to help by at least ensuring your path to self care is as luxurious as it can be. These are some of the best health and wellness stays in the world.

Also, if you can’t relate to the above, then you probably are the annoying friend.

Our top picks: The World’s Best Wellness Getaways

Ojo Caliente

New Mexico, USA

$ – $$ | Pics →

Nestled in a picturesque corner of New Mexico, with rocky outcrops framing the resort, Ojo Calientes is one of the country’s best spa getaways. Its natural hot springs have drawn travelers for centuries, and the experience is now complete with a stunning array of villas, guest rooms, and some more unique accommodation options.

Rooms per night can start as low as $200, with a steadily increasing price range to match the spectacular rooms available. Soaking packages can be bought in advance, and you can even wind up with your own personal hot spring. Keep an eye out for their seasonal packages.

Few places can find you as much bang for your buck as Thailand. A quick glance at this stunning resort and many wouldn’t even bother searching for the price tag. But you can grab a room here for a very reasonable $160. Truly astonishing. Even if you’re splashing, their deluxe villas, yes, a real villa, only comes to $800 a night. Compare that to a box room in NYC!

Guests can enjoy their world-class spa with Thai massages, relax in Asia’s longest swimming pool, and dine on sustainable food, much of it grown on-site. Its location alone is enough of a reset for most of us.

The Khyber Himalyan Resort and Spa

Sometimes a spa isn’t enough. You have to get far away. Really far away. Like Indian Himalayas far away. That’s where The Khyber steps in. Sitting at almost 2,500 meters above sea level, the spectacular resort is a true escape from everyday life. Its spa treatments are renowned, and each guest is recommended a treatment based on their own pains, feelings, and any other applicable factors.

Expect some traditional Indian treatments, a heated pool, and access to some astonishing hikes and walks to clear your head. It’s a dry hotel, but if you feel like bringing a bottle to unwind later, it’s allowed.

Book your stay.
