Many of our hotels offer beauty and body treatments to care for your body and mind. We work together with experts on special health programs that are run in comfortable and elegant facilities. So we have created a list of our top 10 hotels with the best spas and wellness centers at the world’s most popular destinations. Choose the dates of your next vacation, come and relax, and we will take care of the rest.

BREATHE, MEDITATE AND RELAX; LET YOURSELF BE LOOKED AFTER

Many RIU hotels have spas, health and wellness centers or thalassotherapy facilities to give you some precious moments of relaxation during your stay. All of them are designed so that when you reach your destination you can enjoy the best treatments at the hands of true professionals in modern and elegant facilities.

Programs range from classic beauty treatments and relaxing massages to oriental relaxation. If our guests prefer something more, or want to spend a special day, for example during their honeymoon, there are special packages for weddings and newlyweds. Come and see our facilities and let yourself be looked after!

 

1: Hotel Riu Palace Aruba
As well as views of Palm Beach, this hotel also a top-quality spa. The luxury service and comfort of its facilities make this palace an ideal place to spend a dream vacation.

 

2: Hotel Riu Tikida Palmeraie
Only those who have visited the hotel can imagine the sensation of well-being that surrounds the place. So we invite you to experience for yourself this little oasis in the middle of the city of Marrakech. Its spa can give various body treatments that will make you forget about all the strains of daily living.

 

3: Hotel Riu Kaya Palazzo
This modern and sophisticated hotel has one of the most striking interior decors in Antalya. The peace and relaxation offered by day and the display of colored light by the pool at night make this an unforgettable place. It offers a range of beauty and wellness treatments and very comfortable rooms.

 

4: Hotel Riu Tikida Beach
If you have never visited a hamam, we suggest you try an authentic one at the Hotel Riu Tikida Beach. Morocco is well known, among other things, for its hamams, which are steam baths with curative and purifying properties. This is certainly one of our best wellness centers on the Agadir coast.

If, on the other hand, you travel to the center of Marrakech, you will be able to enjoy some time at the hotel spa. This is a hotel that has managed to combine elements of traditional Moroccan culture with a contemporary look. It is a true oasis in the center of Marrakech city. Its spa offers guests various treatments, such as massages, facial treatments and water jets.

If, as well as discovering the marvels of Costa Rica’s wild environment, you are looking for a place to relax, this hotel should be your destination. Its excellent facilities and spectacular surroundings will make your stay unforgettable. Revel in the tropical climate and heavenly beach where you find yourself.

 

7: Hotel Riu Palace Jamaica
In Jamaica you can find everything a tourist is looking for: good music, local and international cuisine and fun, 24 hours a day. Furthermore, after a full day, what could be better than this palace hotel’s spa? Relaxing massages, whirlpool baths, sauna and a range of treatments. As the locals say: ‘Don’t worry, be happy’.

 

8: Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula
This recently built hotel is located by a beach lapped by turquoise waters, and it offers guests a very high quality service. It has a full wellness center with a range of facial and body treatments. Furthermore, this resort has taken tranquility to a new level, and boasts Adults Only Villas, rooms exclusively for adults looking for a relaxed stay, away from the bustle of Cancun.

Sandals Resorts International Set to Make Exciting Double-Debut in Barbados

Sandals Resorts, the Luxury-Included Resort Brand is set to open the former Couples Resort in St Lawrence as a Sandals Resort as well as managing a new Beaches Resort set to be built on the site of the former Almond Beach Resort in St Peter.

According to Sandals Resorts Chairman, Mr. Gordon “Butch” Stewart, the 10-acre former Couples property will open as a Sandals Luxury Included® Resort and will honor all existing commitments with guests who had booked to stay at Couples up until November 6, 2013. Sandals is now accepting reservations for the new resort.

Mr. Stewart also commented, “We are delighted to announce the opening of, not one, but two of our first ever resorts in this wonderful country of Barbados. Barbados and its people are so rich in culture, charm and personality and has been one of the leaders in Caribbean tourism for decades. We have been in discussions to bring our award-winning brands to this country for some time and are thrilled that negotiations have now been successfully concluded.

“In the former Couples Resort, I strongly believe that we have acquired one of the most beautiful properties in the entire island and we cannot wait to bring the full Luxury Included® experience here. We have been voted the world’s best time and time again and have more luxury inclusions than other resort on the planet and we promise to give the people of Barbados a resort to be proud of.”

Upon opening as Sandals Barbados, the resort will offer a selection of 280 luxury accommodations that range from beachfront suites to exquisite rooms situated in the resort’s lush tropical garden. A program of enhancements will be launched in order to ‘Sandalize’ the property immediately.

In addition to the opening of Sandals Barbados, SRI also announced that an agreement has been reached with the Government of the Barbados regarding the building of a brand new Beaches Resort at the site of former Almond Beach Resort in St Peter, Barbados.

“Since it first launched over 16 years ago, Beaches has captured the hearts and minds of holidaymakers everywhere and I can assure you that what we’re planning in Barbados will become one of the most sought after resorts in the entire world.”

Sandals Resorts International’s arrival into Barbados marks another milestone of exciting expansion that has seen the recent opening of the Key West Village at their flagship Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos as well as the hugely anticipated opening of Sandals LaSource Grenada in December.
