Spa days during your vacation, or vacations designed around the spa — either way, these travel-worthy locales can take your family trip to the next level.

 

Pack your bags, grab your passport and the kids (or leave them behind, it’s your mental health … they will understand) and head to some of the world’s best spa resorts worth the effort of getting to.

 

Mountain Trek Fitness Retreat & Health Spa, Ainsworth Hot Springs, Canada

When you hear the call of the mountains, you must go — when the mountains come with a luxury lodge and health-centric vibe, you should probably go soon. An award-winning luxury resort situated in the wild beauty of British Columbia, Canada, Mountain Trek is a stress-free zone with great ways to detox, stay active and feel one with nature. Amenities include yoga with a view; indoor-and-outdoor spas; organic, natural products in every room; and the freedom to explore. This one is definitely a choose-your-own-adventure type of vacation with a light focus on exercise and physical activity — but who wouldn’t want to get up and out in a resort this beautifully positioned in nature? A word to the wise with families of teens, don’t expect cell service.

 

Andronis Concept Wellness Resort, Santorini, Greece

With 28 pool suites designed around the sunset — literally — Andronis Concept Wellness Resort is a lifestyle we can get behind. Located in already travel-worthy Santorini, Greece, this resort goes above and beyond with offerings. Unwind on the terrace of your private infinity pool, or roll out a mat for sunset yoga. Take cooking classes with the kids or explore the island with your partner. No matter what you do, definitely head to the spa for an incredible wellness treatment. Even get to the root of some of your health and wellness concerns with the spa’s hair profiling test, which uses one strand of hair to determine a guest’s specific needs, including nutrition and stress level information. The spa experts will even craft programs specifically designed for guest’s health needs and interests.

 

Rancho La Puerta, Tecate, Mexico

To dedicate time to the state of your body and mind, Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico, is a spa and ranch resort focused on a guest’s every need. Discover your best self at the spa with a seemingly endless list of holistic treatments and wellness services. For families and guests seeking a full journey and immersive natural experience, The Ranch has a slew of activities throughout the trip helping everyone unwind thoughtfully.

 

Chablé Resort & Spa, Chocholá, Mexico

Choose the Yucatán or Maroma location of the Chablé Resort & Spa in Mexico for a redefined theory of wellness. With world-class cuisine, treatments, accommodations and 5-star everything, this resort and spa is a complete departure from reality. Book a villa in the jungle or by the beach and spend your days swimming, dining, hitting the spa and focusing on your health journey — not too hard, though — this is your vacation.

 

BodyHoliday, Castries, St. Lucia

More lifestyle than spa, BodyHoliday is an all-inclusive wellness resort in Saint Lucia. When this resort says wellness, they mean it. The all-inclusive price tag includes fresh, healthy cuisine, health- and wellness-inspired activities and tours of the area with, of course, enough downtime to enjoy the incredible spa. Think included excursions and activities like sailing, yoga, spin classes, daily 50-minute spa treatments and nutritious meals at the resort’s six different bars and restaurants.
