If you see a list titled “The Best Spa Resorts Near Me and in the World,” it’s a fair assumption that most of the places noted are pretty spectacular properties in their own right.

And that’s because any hotel worth its bottle knows how vital a good spa is. These aren’t just rundown box saunas with a broom cupboard massage room. These are palaces of serenity, recuperation stations, and, above all, they’re self-care escapes.

Put yourself on the agenda in 2024, and check out some of the best spa resorts in the world.

Budget Spa Resorts

Red Mountain Resort

Location: Ivins, Utah
Price: $136+
Vibe: Desert dreams
The rundown: On your search for the best spa resorts near me within Utah, consider spa weekend that doesn’t break the bank. Red Mountain Resort’s idyllic spot, nestled amongst Utah’s iconic red rock cliffs, is therapy in itself. But combined with its unique blend of spa treatments and outdoor adventure, the full-body-and-mind reset could go above and beyond your typical spa day.

Best of all, its wonderfully palatable price point means it’s accessible to almost anyone. Rooms start at just $136, leaving plenty of room in the budget for whatever treatments or experiences you fancy indulging in. 

Wapa Di Ume Sidemen

Location: Bali, Indonesia 
Price: $190+
Vibe: Luxury on a budget
The rundown: There’s no denying that Bali’s continued popularity is driving prices steadily skyward. But there’s still some fantastic value to be found, not least at Wapa Di Ume Sidemen. A quintessential Balinese luxury resort; the service is outstanding, the location sublime, and the spa is second to none.

A wide range of treatments are available whether you’re staying at the hotel or not, and you’ll find them all pleasantly affordable compared to their Western counterparts’ offerings. And, of course, you can’t miss out on the flower bath. Because Instagram.

Mid-range Spa Resorts

Koro Sun Resort

Location: Savusavu, Fiji
Price: $240+
Vibe: Rainforest rejuvenation
The rundown: This is one of the few places an anti-spa man like myself may actually be tempted to try. Firstly, it’s in Fiji, which means it’s beautiful. Secondly, it’s in a coconut plantation, which makes it even more beautiful. Thirdly, its rainforest spa is literally in the rainforest, making it super cool.

Guests undergoing the spa treatment are wrapped in giant banana leaves before being scrubbed with coconut shavings sourced from the previously mentioned plantation. As you go through the wonderful motions, you can listen to the sounds of the rainforest and take in the breathtaking surroundings.

Euphoria Retreat

Location: Sparta, Greece
Price: $470+
Vibe: Holistic hideaway
The rundown: Easily the most strikingly designed of the hotels on this list of the best spa resorts near me, Euphoria Retreat’s idyllic and historic location belies the tremendous fusion of modern and ancient Greek architecture within its walls.

The center takes a holistic view of health and offers various treatments from around the world. Take a dip in the Byzantine Hammam or the architecturally astounding pool before hopping into the Finnish Redwood Sauna or indulging in massage therapy from the Far East. There’s nowhere quite like it. 

High End Spa Resorts

Lucknam Park

Location: Colerne, UK
Price: $550+
Vibe: Downton Spabbey
The rundown: It’s not every day you get to grab a spa treatment and dissolve into the lifestyle of one of your favorite TV shows. While Lucknam Park is by no means where Downton Abbey is filmed, the picturesque English country manor will have you feeling as if you were there—the service is brilliant too. Just please don’t get carried away; they’re not servants.

Despite the property’s central buildings dating back to the 1600s, its spa is overwhelmingly modern in the best way. From the state-of-the-art sauna to the mesmerizing pool and the massage rooms, nail studios, and skin-treatment centers in between, you’re spoiled for choices. It’s one of the best hotel spas in the world. 

Oh, and there’s a Michelin-starred restaurant upstairs.

Mauna Lani Resort

Location: Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
Price: $899+
Vibe: Goop it up
The rundown: As with many things on those beautiful Hawaiian islands, nature always comes first. Mauna Lani’s renowned Auberge Spa Center’s slogan is “A True Farm-to-Spa Experience,” and they deliver on all fronts. Each of their unique treatments utilizes ingredients sourced from Hawaii, making for some pretty extraordinary experiences.

Names like Fire and Ice Therapy, Sandalwood Experiences, Pregnancy Massages, and even treatments from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop wellness brand are just a few of the treatments available. The private massage rooms are an intimate option for those wanting something extra special.
