Four amazing spas resorts from around the world

If only we could fly away to the world’s leading spa resorts to celebrate Mother’s Day this year. That’s not a reality for many of us, but not to fear: we have pulled together four incredible spa resorts to go on all of our bucket lists. From Marrakech to Miama beach, take your pick…

1.Lanserhof Tegernsee, Germany

Tucked into the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, the Lanserhof Tegernsee was designed in line with a ‘high tech monastery’ for the body and mind. Its spa program is based on the famous LANS Med detox regime and it brings together medical treatments and luxurious comforts to deliver a world-class experience.  This includes an outdoor heated saltwater pool, evening classical concerts, yoga, tai chi and kinesis workouts and an 18-hole golf course.

 2. Faena Hotel, Miami Beach

With filmmaker Baz Luhrmann and his Academy Award-winning designer wife Catherine Martin at the helm as the creative directors, this luxury hotel now has a show stopping spa. Full of theatrical touches, like the bold red, gold and tiger prints and the contemporary art, the ‘Tierra Santa Healing House spa’ features one of the largest hammams on the East Coast, along with age-old South American shaman-developed body-healing rituals.

3. One & Only Reethi Rah, Maldives

It doesn’t get much more relaxing than this: expansive relaxation lawns, manicured gardens, and spectacular ocean views. The One & Only Reethi Rah is positioned on a secluded island in the Laccadive Sea. Guests can enjoy private pools, canopied day beds and soaking tubs or wander to one of the eight luxurious treatment villas to indulge in treatments based on Ayurvedic traditions and infused with Western luxuries.

4. Royal Mansour Marrakech Spa, Morocco 

Built under commission for King Mohammed VI, the Mansour in Marrakech is the gold standard of luxury with just 53 private riads and, of course, that enchanting spa. In the heart of the resort is the picturesque (and often photographed) white, wrought iron atrium. The spa itself covers three floors and features ten spa cabins offering a range of treatments from massages, facials, and hydrotherapy as well as aesthetic and beauty services. Post-treatment, guests can take to the tea lounge to enjoy the selection of chef-made dishes, herbal teas and fruit juices. Pure zen!
