Have you ever had a vacation that was so overwhelming that you felt like you needed a vacation from your vacation? Unfortunately this is an all too common problem as people try and tackle as much as possible during their few vacations days per year. Instead of a rushed tour, consider taking your few days off to really relax and experience the luxury of a spa destination. Below are some of the best regions in the US to find world class spas for your next holiday.
The harsh, dry Arizona weather can leave your skin feeling ruff but thankfully this state is home to some of the best beauty and health spas in the country. Using traditional Native American techniques and high end technology, the spas in the Southwest United States offer unique treatments that cannot be found anywhere else. Mild winters, year long sunshine, and gorgeous desert scenery help make Arizona a top spa destination.
Some of Arizona’s best spas include Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Mii Amo in Sedona, and Aji Spa in Chandler.
What could be better than sipping a glass of award-winning local wine while enjoy a spa tucked into a mighty redwood forest. California’s beauty makes it a great location for many of the country’s top spas. You can opt for a beachside spa with saltwater treatments, a spa in Napa Valley with Michelin star quality food, or head into the mountains to find little redwood hideaways.
Top spas in California include The Spa at Rancho Valencia, L’Auberge del Mar in San Diego, and Calistoga Ranch in Napa.
The majestic Rocky Mountains are home to more than the world’s top ski resorts, they are also home to some of the world’s best spas.

The Palm Beach area spas offer luxury, fine dining, exclusivity, and fun all on top of an incredible array of modern spa treatment options.
