What is a destination spa? March 5, 2009

Filed under: Spa Definition — everythingspa @ 12:04 pm

There are many different types of spas : Wellness Spa, Resort/Hotel Spa, Day Spa, Medical Spa.  This post explores the Destination Spa.

According to spafinder.com, destination spas offer a full-immersion spa experience in which all guests participate. All-inclusive programs provide fitness activities, nutritious spa cuisine, various therapeutic spa and body treatments, educational classes, and often mind/body/spirit offerings to help you jump-start a new, more healthful lifestyle.

I like to describe a destination spa this way:  the spa is the destination itself.  The area around the spa may have become developed because the spa draws people there. 

There are websites devoted to destination spas.  For example:  http://www.destinationspagroup.com/

Some popular destination spas include:

  • Canyon Ranch (Lenox, MA or Tuscon, AZ)
  • Red Mountain Spa (Utah)
  • Golden Door (California)

There are even Facebook groups dedicated to destination spas.
