Tucked away in the Alps is the stunning Cambrian Hotel Adelboden & Spa, where you can experience true Swiss bliss. It boasts heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a Finnish sauna and more, not to mention simply unbelievable mountain vistas. While you can’t recreate the views, you can definitely treat yourself to a steaming bath, complete with relaxing salts, and a glass of wine.
If your find yourself in Marrakech, you can’t pass up a visit to La Mamounia hotel, which has a huge wellness spa. The hotel’s luxurious pools and treatment rooms have an authentic Moroccan interior that lends itself wonderfully to relaxation. Bring Moroccan flair into your own home with patterned accents and mood-setting lanterns.
You don’t have to take an international trip to indulge in some pampering. The Cal-a-Vie Health Spa in Vista, California, has everything you need for a wellness getaway, from relaxing body treatments to meditation classes, golfing, and more. You can capture the vibes of this serene West Coast destination with lots of candles and vibrant plants like a majesty palm.
For a more rustic experience, consider the Lodge and Spa at Brush Creek Ranch in Sarasota, Wyoming. This dude ranch (aka, guest ranch) is the epitome of luxe with its private cabins, top-notch cuisine, beautiful horses, and serene Trail Head Spa. You can create your own retreat by setting up a little meditation area for yourself, complete with floor pillows, candles, and soothing scents.
I think it's pretty much the law that you have to visit the Blue Lagoon on your first trip to Iceland. I'd like to say it was relaxing but shortly after this snow starting hitting us sideways! Still, it was pretty amazing to bathe with this view ❄️

Iceland has become a popular tourist destination in recent years, and a trip to this Nordic island simply isn’t complete without visiting the Blue Lagoon. This geothermal spa is known for its stunning blue water, which makes for unbeatable photos (no filter needed!). It’s easy to emulate the vibes of the Lagoon’s private lounge with a bit of modern decor in neutral colors.

Yes, as in that Chanel. The Chanel au Ritz Paris is a gorgeous oasis tucked away in the heart of the French capital, where you can sip on wellness cocktails and pamper yourself with skin care treatments and massages. You can copy this luxurious decor with wrought-iron accents against pale backdrops.
I'm pretty sure the term 'interior goals' came out of someone seeing the beautiful relaxation room at the #GraceMayflower. I mean .. how gorgeous is this?? @stylecusp and I walked out of our massages this morning like zombies.. no joke! It was so relaxing. 😴 [Fun Fact: This hotel was the inspiration behind the show Gilmore Girls! Any Rory & Lorelai fans out there? 🙋🏽] #GraceHotels #travel #interiordecor #decorgoals @gracehotels #spaday #connecticut

Fun fact: The Grace Mayflower Inn and Spa was actually the inspiration for the hit show Gilmore Girls! But beyond its pop culture connections, this spa is a serene locale tucked away in a quaint corner of New England. You’ll find personalized wellness programs to help you unwind during your visit. If you've always wanted to do all-white and were too intimidated, take a page out of The Grace Mayflower Inn's playbook—you can bring the same aesthetic into your own home without losing the warmth and comfort.

The Seychelles islands are breathtaking to begin with, and you can take your visit to the next level by patronizing the Six Senses Zil Pasyon, located on the private island of Félicité. Enjoy the elevated saltwater pool and sundeck, yoga and meditation pavilion, and ample spa treatments, all with stunning oceanfront views. Capture the idyllic atmosphere with a hanging hammock chair in your favorite sunny corner.
This spa is truly a “sanctuary for the senses.” The Lodge at Woodloch in Hawley, Pennsylvania, has an outdoor year-round whirlpool, a vast indoor pool, and co-ed soaking pools with heated Hydromassage WaterWalls. The stone accents at this spa contribute to the relaxing earthy vibes—if you’re thinking about a bathroom remodel, this style might be the way to go!
Experience the unbelievable natural beauty of Sedona, Arizona, at the Mii Amo destination spa and resort. Surrounded by red rock formations, the spa offers cool “Journey Packages” that combine health, fitness, wellness, and relaxation for the ultimate mind-clearing vacation. Mii Amo provides a good reminder that relaxation doesn’t have to be indoors. Why not take a hike to focus your mind or do some yoga in a local park?
MONDAYS BLUES 🇬🇷🌞🌿When January plays up with wind and rain it's time to spoil yourself with travel plans.

The hilltop Amanzoe resort in Porto Heli, Greece, looks like it’s straight out of a movie. The nearly 3,000-square-meter spa has multiple outdoor treatment spaces where you can take in the incredible scenery, as well as a yoga pavilion and aquatic treatment area. We’re loving the lavender gardens and classic topiaries!

Grab your bathing suit and camera and head to the Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa in Costa Rica for a tropical vacation you’ll never forget. The thermal mineral springs are the main attraction here, but the jungle-inspired interiors are just as magical.
Chablé Resort in Mexico is built around a cenote—a sacred site and source of restoration for the body and soul—and is carefully designed to help visitors connect with the beauty of nature. Bring this amazing aesthetic home with a neutral color palette and lots of texture from wood and linen accents.
We could probably spend a few weeks at Amanemu in Japan without getting tired of the views. The spa at this gorgeous resort has a water theme, with ample swimming pools, bath tubs, and even a thermal spring. While you may not have room for all that at your house, don’t underestimate the soothing power of a nice, long soak.
Retreats at The Ranch promise to help you refocus and reset, all while you relax in its unassuming accommodations. The unfinished wood and fresh tones lend a relaxing vibe to this wellness center, and we could definitely benefit from a few days without our phones (not to mention, a beautiful wall of fire logs!).
The Turkish bath, also know as hamam or hammam, is one of the ancient world’s most widely exported customs. The tradition of the Turkish bath was born generations ago, adopted from Romans and Byzantines and then perfected by the Seljuk and Ottoman Turks and has continued even until today #goreme #ballon #sunrise #early #experiences #sun #nature #earth #cudo #dzennet #paradise #raj #svijet #lijeto #hodanje #turska #世界一周 #aksaray #king_shots #global_secrets #globetravelling #worldtraveler #instasyon #my_daily_capture #landscapelovers #naturephotography #naturepolis #nature_perfection #natgeotravel #rsa_nature
