As much as we love to travel in the name of adventure and exploration, nothing can beat a spa retreat. We'd never discourage you from treating yourself to a 50-minute massage at a neighborhood spa, and we'll always urge you to indulge in a luxurious pedicure, but it's safe to say that those short-lived treatments won't always deliver that much-needed jolt of rejuvenation. With this in mind, we decided to put together a list of the most luxurious destination spas in the world for therapeutic relaxation. Complete with unique spa menus that feature experimental, holistic, and interdisciplinary treatments, these luxe resorts will show you what it means to unwind while investing in your well-being.

Not only are they the six best spas in the world, but they're also in incredible locations, so you can choose to visit them solely for a week of spa indulgence or as a relaxing add-on to your travel adventures. Either way, the escape of your dreams awaits you. And for those of us who can't step away from our daily obligations for a week of pampering yet, you can at least get a mental vacation while you daydream about these world-renowned spa resorts. Scroll through to see which serene backdrop and treatment-centric getaway beckons you.
