10 Hotel Spas Worth the Trip Around the World

From Sydney to Ibiza, the world is peppered with hotel spas that make sure you're pampered from head to toe.

After a day of shopping and sightseeing in Sydney it is time to treat your feet to some well-deserved TLC and your rendezvous awaits at Crown Sydney. Start with a foot massage that will have your feet feeling very happy before getting a signature pedi by Christina Fitzgerald that will leave your feet pretty and ready to slip into stunning dancing heels for a great night out in the city.

For an acoustic treatment that will leave you with heightened awareness, a relaxed mind and a body hit with waves of peace then your destination spa is in California. The Integration organises incredible sound baths where in a multi-wave sound chamber you will be treated to a sequence of quartz crystal singing bowls being played to help you achieve ultimate relaxation.

Of course there is no better place to get a Thai massage than in Thailand and our top choice for the stretching treatment is the traditional massage at the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok. Performed on a futon, the massage will have you deeply relaxed, revitalised and left with increased flexibility after an hour and a half of gentle rocking, acupressure and assisted stretching.

Walk into a royal palace and get a treatment like a queen at the Royal Mansour in Marrakesh. The majestic hotel's spa is where luxury meets beauty and to delve right into one of the most plushest experiences you must book yourself in for the Ceremonial Massage. The treatment is inspired by Moroccan beauty rituals and uses argan oil to smooth and nourish the skin.

An afternoon in the new Bvlgari Hotel Vitality Pool is what the doctor has ordered for anyone looking to take a dip in a pool fit for a princess in the City of Light. Inspired by the Roman baths of Caracalla, the pool is decorated in mosaics, features a waterfall, and is the perfect antidote for an achy body. After a moment in the spa's hammam take a dip in the pool and wash all the muscle tension away.

What's better than being on the island of Saint-Barth's? Getting your hands on a Day Pass to the Spa Diane at the Hôtel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf. For a great start to the day opt for the Rise & Shine Pass that will treat you to breakfast at the hotel's Fouquet's restaurant before enjoying a body massage or a facial treatment, but if you are after something a little bit more indulgent choose the Fouquet's Care Pass, which will treat you to a 3-course gourmet dinner and a body massage.

Nothing says plush more than a bespoke facial and at Royal Monceau - Raffles Paris in Paris you are treated like precious jewels when it comes to beauty treatments in its Clarins & myBlend Spa. After a careful analysis of the skin, a protocol is prepared using 400 possible combinations of creams, ensuring the best is used on each client, to make sure you are left with glowing skin. And after your bespoke facial, make sure you allow time to laze around the spa's famous indoor pool.

Saint-Tropez, sun and spa are all on the very fancy agenda at Gigi Ramatuelle where Holidermie has set up two cabins for skin-loving treatments. A few steps from the en vogue restaurant Gigi, the skincare brand has created two havens from where you can spoil yourself and skin with facials and after-sun treatments to attend to and soothe skin that has been exposed to the scorching rays.

Burj Al Arab is one of Dubai's most iconic hotels and it is where you can enjoy a dip with a view and feel like an Arabian princess. The luxury hotel's pool is 150m above the Gulf, offering a breathtaking view of the cosmopolitan city, and making you feel on top of the world while enjoying leisurely strokes and encircled by majestic mosaic columns.

Partying a little too much in Ibiza? We have found the perfect remedy and most delightful way to nurse a hangover, and that is a spa treatment at the Away Spa in the W Hotel. Make your way to the steam room before booking yourself in for the 80-minute detox treatment designed to eliminate toxins, getting you reinvigorated just in time for another big night out.
