Asia has cultivated a long-standing tradition of innovative treatments to sooth the mind and body. The numerous natural hot springs inspired traditional bath houses and spas that can be traced back thousands of years. This long history is blended with modern techniques for a truly unique spa experience. Our editors have selected the best destinations for wellness and relaxation across Asia.

Japan and Korea have especially storied histories when it comes to spas. As early as the 13th century, public bath houses were built for all to use. Many of these multi-story bath houses are still open today, and have been expanded to include gardens, saunas, and treatment areas where you can enjoy massages and facials. Ryokans, Japanese inns built around communal baths, often offer robust treatments as well as tranquil outdoor settings.

Elsewhere, places such as Thailand, Bali, and the Maldives have developed specialized treatments that are unique to the culture. Be forewarned that some of these treatments, such as Thai massages, might be more vigorous than you’re used to. Many resorts offer packages including massages, meditation, yoga, and a variety of skin and body treatments. The exotic facial scrubs in these tropical destinations bring out an inner glow that will make you believe in the Fountain of Youth.
