One of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Seville is always popular for short breaks. But if your feet are aching from pounding the pavement, or you’re feeling rundown from the heat, then this is a fantastic way to recuperate. Modelled on traditional Arabian hammams, the elegant surroundings immediately soothe you, and you can enjoy a long afternoon soaking in the thermal baths, the hydromassage and salt pools, or cleansing your pores in the steam room. As an added bonus, this tour also includes a short guided walking tour of the charming Santa Cruz area.
Thermal Spa in Costa Rica
The hot springs at the Tabacon Resort in Costa Rica are acclaimed as one of the world’s best eco-spas. If you’re visiting Costa Rica then this is one of those must-do experiences, where you know as soon as you walk inside that it’s going to be special, and as you leave you realise it was even better than you expected. Shimmering waterfalls cascade into secluded pools perfect for romantic interludes; warm mineral springs heated by the nearby Arenal volcanic zone cleanse the skin and relax tired muscles, and guests unwind in a series of pools with varying temperatures, sipping cocktails at swim-up bars, or having fun sliding down a thermal water slide. You get here from San Jose, and there’s plenty of amazing sightseeing opportunities along the way.

Hell’s Gate Thermal Spa in Rotorua
Don’t let the name fool you, there’s nothing scary about Hell’s Gate, unless you have a fear of being supremely relaxed that is. The bubbling warm mud pools here, nicknamed Sodom and Gomorrah, were used by the Maori people for centuries before settlers discovered them. The mud has the capacity to detoxify and soothe the skin, improve blood circulation and provide plenty of laughs as you smear it over each other’s faces. If you’ve ever visited Rotorua, you’ll know the city has a distinctive odour to it – that’s the volcanic sulphur that makes the mud so rich.
Bali Botanica in Indonesia
This blissful spa experience in Bali is one of the most popular activities on the island – and no wonder. It has a unique natural setting, overlooking a peaceful, bird-filled jungle landscape; a fantastic range of included treatments ranging from herbal body scrubs to therapeutic baths and signature massages with herbal oil, and return transportation from hotels in Ubud, so there’s no need to walk or take the bus back, and you can feel amazing all evening.
African Earth Spa Experience
The mud used in the treatments at this tranquil spa just outside Durban in South Africa takes a fascinating journey before it’s rubbed soothingly into your skin. In accordance with ancient custom, it must be scooped from the White Mountain by virgin Zulu women during the Full Moon, when the mud’s mineral content is said to be at its highest. After a sensual massage and relaxing in the pool, you’ll receive a personal consultation from an African healer to relieve stress and let you emerge feeling like a whole new person.
