Every day is a new opportunity to pamper yourself. A massage or a relaxing facial will never go out of style. That's why we browsed through the world's most luxurious and special wellness hotels and found some wonderful treatments and offers that have a beneficial effect on both body and mind.

This is our selection of the best wellness hotels in the world.

Arctic Bath Hotel — Harads, Sweden

Fairytale wellness in pristine Scandinavian nature in Lapland is something truly special. The spa in the shape of a bird's nest floats at the top of the local river, complemented by minimalist cabins with glazed facades scattered on the banks or among the birch trees.

The healing water of the Lula River is the last stop in the series of dry and steam saunas that this Swedish spa offers, but if you're looking for something less invigorating, there's an outdoor hot tub from which you can admire the northern lights.

Six Senses Fort Barwara — India

Don't be fooled by the militaristic exterior of an Indian spa! It is located in a Rajasthani fortress from the 14th century, and in October 2021, the historic building came to life again in the form of a luxurious spa.

The five-meter-thick rock walls still successfully defend guests against the stressors of the outside world. The wellness program consists of Ayurveda and yoga, and spa treatments include regional ingredients such as saffron, Kashmiri lavender and jasmine. The fortress is surrounded by a lush garden, with which the gardeners are trying to re-attract wildlife and birds.

Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt — Austria

At the foot of the Austrian Alps, you can find a beautiful log cabin that could easily be depicted on postcards. In the embrace of the fresh mountain air, not only treatments are available to you, but a variety of activities.

You can go on a hike to Lake Schwarzsee, one of the warmest in the Alps, and the hotel also has an exercise area with a view of the surrounding mountains.

BodyHoliday Cariblue Beach — St. Lucia

The all-inclusive BodyHoliday resort is based on relaxation, regeneration, exercise and healthy eating. With numerous programs, fitness classes and spa treatments, it is perfect for all those looking for rejuvenation.

Guests enjoy daily spa treatments as well as a range of activities including archery and a mix of spinning and yoga.

Bushmans Kloof — South Africa

Bushmans Kloof, located on an 18,500-hectare property on an open plateau at the foot of the Cederberg Mountains, is not only famous for its exceptional surroundings. In fact, the resort boasts a lot more, from natural heritage to more than 150 species of birds, 750 species of plants and 35 species of mammals.

After a day of exploring the unspoiled African nature, you can relax in the hotel's spa by indulging in a massage in the riverside pavilion.
