Located on the South Korean island of Yeongjongdo, Nest Hotel has been cleverly designed to ensconce guests in the tranquillity of the surrounding nature, defined by pine trees, reed fields, and the calming Yellow Sea.
Nestled between a mountain and the beach, Gloria Manor ensures guests endless opportunities to explore the natural beauty of Taiwan’s southernmost tip, while the therapeutic yoga program puts the focus on spiritual enrichment.
Amid the coconut palms and gently rolling slopes of Thailand’s Pansea Bay, the peaceful spa at The Surin Phuket is the perfect place to attain inner harmony in an exquisite tropical setting.
Staying in Thailand and against the seductive backdrop of Koh Samui’s Chaweng Beach, The Library is a balm for mind and soul with its curated collection of over 1,400 books.
Over to Europe, and the Mayan Secret Spa at Barcelona’s Claris Hotel & Spa looks to ancient Mexican rituals for the inspiration behind its innovative treatment menu.
Heading to Germany, Hotel Bachmair Weissach boasts one of the country’s first Japanese-inspired spas, while the top-floor ONO Spa at The Mandala Hotel is a world of holistic wellbeing high above Berlin.
Neighboring a nature reserve, Kenoa – Exclusive Beach Spa & Resort has been designed to harmonize with its stunning ecological surroundings, best taken in from the Shiseido-filled spa and ocean-front fitness centre.
