Looking for luxury that’s star-approved? These five spas have played host to some of Hollywood’s hottest celebs.
Thailand destination spa Chiva-Som serves as a holistic haven for such stars as David and Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley (who is a fan of the full-immersion spot for weight-loss) and Elle Macpherson (who likes the spot for its meditation and seaweed body wrap). The beach-front resort represents tranquility and luxury at its best without forgetting the eco-friendly angle, which is evident at every turn.
Located in Napa Valley, Auberge Spa is a natural extension of wine country’s most luxurious country inn, Auberge du Soleil. Many celebrities frequent it, including Julia Roberts. You’ll find celebs here because of the many treatments featured, such as house-infused oils, as well as calendula, rosemary, lemon balm and other herbs grown in the spa’s garden.
Nestled on the Spanish Mediterranean coast, just 45 minutes from Alicante, SHA Wellness Clinic is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all of its guests (like past visitors Naomi Campbell and Kylie Minogue) using a combination of traditional oriental disciplines and Western innovations. The spa’s advanced techniques (and brand-new design to boot) are aimed at slowing down the aging process and, according to the clinic, it is the only macrobiotic spa in Europe.
Boasting only 32 villas and suites and a five-to-one ratio of staff members to guests (and its close proximity to Los Angeles), it’s no surprise that Cal-a-Vie Health Spa is a go-to destination for Hollywood. Past guests include Paula Abdul, Kathleen Turner, Tyra Banks, Oprah and Kirstie Alley. Intense nutrition-meets-beauty itineraries like the European Plan (which includes 16 treatments); the last time Kirstie visited, she signed up for it.
Round Hill Hotel and Villas in Montego Bay, Jamaica, has always been a big hit with the celeb crowd (JFK and Jackie O. honeymooned there). Recent visitors include Sigourney Weaver, Meredith Vieira and Emma Watson, and according to the spa, they all indulged in one of the spa’s signature treatments. The spa features one-of-a-kind treatments like the Signature Hangover Massage—the perfect pick-me-up for feeling rested and rejuvenated.
