Stiftung Felsentor, Zurich, Switzerlandstiftung-felsentor
In the heart of the Swiss mountains, you’ll be taught by one of the most globally recognised yoga teachers while being treated to sensational views of the alps and Lake Lucerne.

Menu highlight: The wellness escape is divided into three-and-a-half hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. In between, there will be teachings as well as chanting of mantras and kirtans from the yoga and Tantra traditions.

Shizuka New York Day Spa, New York, USA
This lavish Japanese day spa in Midtown Manhattan has a fan in Victoria Beckham. Famous for its unusual facials and luxury massages, it is the Geisha Facial that gets the most talk. Therapists use bird poop (nightingale droppings to be precise) to rejuvenate the skin. Getting an appointment at this trendy spot can be difficult, so if you’re planning on going to New York, make a booking way in advance.
Menu highlight: While Victoria Beckham apparently loves the skin softening effects from the Geisha Facial, the Coffee Break Mud Wrap is also ranked as a rejuvenation must.
Ayana Resort and Spa: Jimbaran Bay, Bali
In 2016 alone, Ayana Resort and Spa won over 30 awards across the globe, recognising the resort not only for its facilities but also for its luxury and attention to detail. Located on top of Jimbaran Bay, this picturesque resort and spa is the perfect place for your ultimate relaxation journey. Beauty pageants often send contestants to the resort prior to the main show and, according to reports, Claire Danes has enjoyed the key attraction: Bali’s only aquatonic sea water jet pool. Known for its therapeutic effects, the two-hour treatment is highly sought after by guests.
Menu highlight: Ayana has not one but four signature treatments on the menu which include the hot shell massage, Ayana fusion healing journey, seven chakra dhara and lava stone reflexology. Note: They’re all incredible!
