  1. There is no way that I would put Sedona, AZ as #1. Instead of the destinations, I would prefer to have ranked actual spa locations.

  2. Aurora says:

    On the contrary, Arizona is well known for Spa’s. Having been lucky enough to visit 3 Spa locations in this state, I can certainly vouch for their place on this list.

  3. irene says:

    i was surprised to see arizona up there in the top spot when talking spas it would never have sprung to my mind. nice to Bath up there, the city really seems to be pushing the spa angle since the thermae bath spa opened a few years ago.

  4. Costa Rica says:

    I agree that the Spa’s in Arenal, Costa Rica are some of the best i have ever been to. The natural hot springs along with the views of the volcano at night are incredible. Great list.

  5. Aurora says:

    Hot Springs and views of the volcano at night…..that sounds fabulous. Just closing my eyes and pretending I am there right now…..

  6. Emily M says:

    Bora Bora just sounds luxurious without even knowing anything about it!

  7. Kylie Martin says:

    Well it has to have bath on the list. I have been twice and would go back again.

  8. Cruisepilot says:

    I would say that Sedona, AZ, USA. Ubud, Indonesia and Arenal Volcano National Park, Costa Rica are very nice places for spas. In addition to that, these places are just beautiful.

  9. Italy is missing ! Tuscany boasts such beautiful natural spa resorts like Fonteverde or Bagni di Pisa ..

  10. I have been wanting to visit a place like this for a long time. these destinations look amazing, I am particularly interested in Bora Bora and playa mujeres.

    I will share it with my friends on facebook, the photos are great, Thanks,
