Pura Vida Retreat & Spa (Costa Rica)

I was in Costa Rica for work and had some free time, and so I had been searching for some spas in Costa Rica.  Pure Vida kept coming up in my searches as a “highly rated” spa, so it caught my eye.   In the end, on that particular trip, I ended up going to […]

I was recently in Walt Disney World for a RunDisney event, (1/2 marathon, thank you very much).  So naturally I had to check out the spa scene while I was there.  Since I was staying at the Swan property (SPG member), I figured that I would go there.  I did notice that the spa on […]

Following my Grand Spa Massage the night before, I took the advice of my massage therapist and booked a Deep Tissue Massage.  Now, I get deep tissue work done pretty regular from my regular massage therapist (see M-Spa) and I have also written about the Deep Relief Massage at the Lodge at Woodloch.  So, i […]

When checking out a new spa, I always like to try one of their Signature Treatements.    Its what the spa is choosing to distinguish itself with, and so I like to use that as a basis of my assessment of the spa.   For the Grand Spa at Tabacon Thermal Resort & Spa, this […]

I had a trip to Costa Rica for work, and so i was determined to tack on a couple of personal days and experience a spa.   I was on a short timeline for a spa visit, and wanted something very unique to Costa Rica, so rather than opt for the beaches and any of […]

Of course, by now you know that I can’t go anywhere new without at least checking out one spa! So when I had a chance to head to Asia, specifically Singapore for the first time, I knew I needed to make time for a spa visit.   I had searched out potential spas.  My colleague […]

My friend, Mandy, a long-time vacationer to Nantucket, brought the Spa at the White Elephant Hotel to my attention. We were planning a long weekend visit in Nantucket, and she of course knew about my love of spas.   It was a quick trip, and I wasn’t sure if I would squeeze it in. However, at […]

My friend Kate and I had been talking about a girls’ weekend, which turned into a spa trip, and which turned into Hershey. I forget how it originally came up as our destination of choice. I think it had something to do with chocolate, and the fact that it was on my list of places […]

Ah, Mii Amo…   When I really got serious on setting my sights on all the Top spas, I had to put Mii Amo on the top of my list of spas to try.   I had long wanted to get out to Sedona anyway, so it was an easy decision, and I decided to save Miraval […]

So given that I was working my way through a Top 10 List of Destination Spas, it was only a matter of time before I headed out to Miraval, in Tucson, Arizona. I was curious how Miraval compared to Mii Amo, as they are both consistently in the Top 10, and usually jockeying for position. […]
