Spanista Suggests Holiday Spa Resorts Planning Starts Now


Dear Wellness Seekers,

Spanista Suggests Holiday Spa Resorts Planning Starts Now because it is never to early to dream about your next destination and put your dreams into planning motion.

Where would you like to go? Somewhere truly relaxing where you can wind down from the holiday rush?  The time between Christmas and New Year’s Spanista suggests starting your New year right by treating yourself to a few days at a resort spa. It’s a fantastic way to get your heart, body and soul aligned in positive spirit before  stepping into the daily life routines in the New Year. In fact you may want to put this top of your Christmas gift list this year!

While flying to the midwest last week I discovered a great feature in Delta Sky Magazine focused on The World’s Best Spa’s from Miami to Dubai. Of course this caught my attention with a grand headline “The Ultimate Escapes”.  We are all seeking ways to unplug from this on-the-move, always-on culture without fully going off the grid. Discovering and sharing new Spa’s is one of the reasons Spanista came into being – to encourage Self Care.

From Alpine Escapes to Caribbean Retreats to Urban Oases the article features some of the best spas around the world. Spanista has selected three from this well curated collection that seem to align with the Spanista Philosophy with easy travel access here in the America:

  1. The Spa at Viceroy, Miami is a grandiose luxury spa you dream about. TheSpanista-Suggests-Holiday-Spa-Resorts-Planning-Starts-Now-2.jpegPINIMAGE intoxicating chic 28,000 square foot space was designed by Philippe Starck boasting floor to ceiling windows overlooking Key Biscayne. A floating library is a feature of the Water Lounge which includes both hot and cool plunge pools. There are so many high-end features here the atmosphere alone will propel you into another world so do indulge in the extensive menu of treatments including Raindrop Therapy – Seven essential oils fall like raindrops along your spine, combining massage, reflexology and stretching to relax your physically and mentally. Heaven on earth for restoring your balance. Then of course Miami’s night life always beacons if you feel the need to explore its unique food and cultural scene. Visit:
  2. Spa Town at Paws Up Missoula, Montana where you can get lost in nature’s healing powers within the paradise of white treatment tents in a large meadow, where a bubbling brook is the soundtrack and the wind rustles in the pine trees. The mountains provide aSpanista-Suggests-Holiday-Spa-Resorts-Planning-Starts-Now-3.jpegPINIMAGE backdrop that helps one put life’s pressures in perspective while you enjoy such specialized treatments like The Montana Gold Rush with 24 carat gold flakes mixed with organic oil to leave skin firm and glowing. Visit:
  3. Miiamo Sedona, Arizona with its natural red rock landscape of Boyton Canon is the perfect backdrop for this intimate 16 room all-inclusive destination spa. Its customized approach to physical, mental and spiritual therapies is a blend of enigmatic vibe of Sedona that transcends routines mixes with Native American Traditions for a unique experience. The location alone is spiritually elevating. Visit:
