Browse our top 5 of the world’s best, most exclusive and luxurious wellness resorts and try to visit at least one of them if and when you can.
Asounfou Spa | Morocco
Asounfou means ‘relax’ in Berber and we can’t think of a better place to relax than in Morocco, the Hammam country par excellence. Assounfou Spa is an initiative of Richard Branson and is located at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. And while you’re enjoying all that luxury, it is nice to know that you’re contributing to the local economy, as 15% of the earnings of some treatments is reserved for the local population.
Hypnôze Spa| Peru
Two curanderos, or shamans, have helped craft a spa that uses medicinal plants and handmade oils to soothe the skin and relax body and mind. You might very well feel the tingle of hypnotic energy forces at work while you receive your uber de luxe spa treatment: the Hypnôze Spa is built on ancient Incan ruins. Let’s just hope that this will be an extra spiritual bonus to your experience!
Ananda Garwahl | India
Ananda Spa is located at the foot of the Himalayas in the far north of India. While you’re admiring the breath-taking views, you get the best Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta treatments in the world. And if you want to increase your chances of running into Oprah, this is the place to be. She apparently is a regular at this amazing location. http://www.anandaspa.com/
Nira Spa | Shanti, Mauritius
The Nira Spa at the Shanti resort on Mauritius is the best kept secret of the Indian Ocean. Not anymore. You get the best combination of Ayurvedic treatments and Western luxury available at this wonderful retreat. Picture this: a massage next to a bonfire on the beach while enjoying an exotic cocktail. Really, can it get any better?
Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat | Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat is located in a hidden valley in Kuala Lumpur. It’s surrounded by waterfalls, caves, hot springs and lots of greenery. And let’s not forget the accommodation. Your sleep quarters will be located in one of the luxury villas and you can choose from over 100!!! massages and holistic treatments.
Close to home
If you want to stay at these wonderful places you’ll have to prepare yourself for a hefty price tag. So it is either winning the lottery or saving a sack of money to have a lifetime experience. In the meantime treat yourself to your own Hammam at home! Our new Hammam products are guaranteed to give you that same Hmmm-feeling! Or even better: visit one of our RITUALS CITY SPAS for a soothing and relaxing massage while you dream of visiting Peru, Morocco or India.
