Spa-goers have really become better traveled and more sophisticated. More is expected from every spa experience. What is interesting is that spa-goers are now more than willing to spend any amount just to experience complete luxury and exclusivity in a spa. They could easily travel around the world to find the perfect spa experience.
No wonder, luxury and exclusive spas are now racing against each other to entice customers. Spas are now not only about massages. Competitive spas from around the world are adding private suites, rain showers, unique baths, exotic treatments, fitness programs, and traditional therapies from far-flung cultures in their offerings.
Changes at modern spas are somehow dramatic. Luxury spas have started reaching out to a new niche in potential guests. For instance, men are highly targeted these days through modification of spa menus, changing oils and making the treatments less girly. Spa resorts are also targeting families to entice more luxury vacationers from around the world.
Spa resorts and services are evolving. Traditional mud baths are passé. Spa-goers have become more discerning because there is an intense competition among spa resorts. Here are the top 10 of the world’s most luxurious and exclusive spas.
