Resort Spas

The classic resort spa offers fine dining, golf, swimming pools, tennis courts, a kids club and other activities distinct to the location, like skiing, beach access, even water parks. They're the perfect choice for families. Because "resort spa" and "spa resort" are highly searched terms on the internet, the old distinctions between spas are breaking down. Some adults-only wellness spas and small inns now call themselves "spa resorts." That means it's more important than ever to do your research to get the spa experience you want.
