  2. Five of the World’s Best Hot Springs

    Leave a Comment

    Before the age of modern hot tubs, men and women found another way to soothe their sore muscles and relieve the stress of the day: natural hot springs. For centuries men and women used hot springs for their wonderful health benefits and relaxation. There are thousands of hot springs around the world in almost every corner of the earth. We’d like to share five of the best hot springs around the world.

    Evia, Greece

    The second largest Greek island, Evia, is a heavenly spot that is as popular today as it was during the days of Aristotle. With over 80 natural hot springs available and man-made canal routes to send the steaming water into public and private bath houses, there are plenty of places to enjoy the revitalizing water of Evia.

    The only way to reach Evia is by bus or ferry, and it’s about a two and a half hour trip but definitely worth it. The best months to go are between June and October with a simple hotel room costing about €55 (approx. $75) per night that includes access to thermal bathes and amenities.

    Waikite Valley, New Zealand

    In this small town of north central New Zealand, just south of Rotorua, you will find the largest source of pure boiling water in New Zealand. Of course, it’s quite unwise to take a dip in the ‘Living Waters’ of Te Manaroa Spring, you can watch the water cascade to main splash pools where you can enjoy the (non-boiling) warm temperatures of the water.

    We love these springs because they’re accessible via wheelchair and are family-friendly which allows everyone that’s willing to take a trip to enjoy these great pools. Of course, after the long flight to New Zealand, you’ll need a good warm bath (About 24 hours flight from New York).

    La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica

    Originally known as El Borio, the city changed it’s name after the eruption of the Arenal Volcano which devastated the east side of its base, destroying two villages and a mass of land. El Boria remained untouched and changed it’s name to what translates to “the fortunate.”

    You’ll feel quite fortunate when you visit this beautiful small town with Thermo-mineral rivers that flow through tropical gardens to reach bathing pools that you can relax all day in. Of course, there is plenty to do around the area such as visiting the monstrous Arenal Volcano and La Catarata de la Fortuna, a waterfall 70 meters high. With daily excursions to take, it will be easy to enjoy the warm baths of La Fortuna at night while taking it easy.

    Strawberry Springs, Colorado

    Back in the States, there are plenty of hot springs to visit, and one of our favorite is located deep inside the Colorado forest. A collection of stone pools make up Strawberry Park Hot Springs.

    Open year round, this is a great spot to visit in the middle of winter, when you can spend a long day skiing or snowboarding on Colorado’s famous Champagne Powder snow before relaxing inside the steaming waters.

    Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland

    Here is a great year-round hot spring that’s perfect for a long day of relaxation and hydrotherapy. Whether it’s summer or winter, you’ll find an experience like none other. If you’re there the right time in the summer, the sun never sets.  And in the winter, it may stay dark longer, but it just gives you more time to enjoy the breath-taking Northern Lights.

    Located just south of the Arctic Circle, the water’s view reveals a landscape of lava and lava formations that have developed throughout the centuries. Sure, there’s plenty of other activities to participate in, but who could leave the springs when such amazing views are all around you.

    Of course, not everyone has time to galavant around the world to find their very own favorite hot spring. That is why ThermoSpas has created a full line of affordable hot tubs that bring the joys of a hot spring right to your own backyard. With options ranging from a modest two-person hot tub, to an impressive 12-person Swim Spa Trainer, we know you’ll be able to find the hot tub of your dreams.

  3. Our Five Favorite Spas in America

    While we featured a few of the coolest hot tub spots around the world just recently, which included a few American hotels, there’s a lot more amazing places to visit in America alone. We found a collection of spas in America that are as glamorous as they are relaxing. Follow us now to five of our favorite spas in America.

    The Oaks at Ojai – Ojai, CA

    Ojai is about 80 miles north of Los Angeles and definitely worth the trip. A small yet quaint town with a good attitude and beautiful scenery. The Oaks at Ojai offer some of the most relaxing Spa treatments in California including fitness classes, healthy spa cuisine, and relaxing treatments including their saunas and hot tubs. Of course, if you’re interested in a great soak, Ojai is also known for their wonderfully relaxing hot springs. Make a reservation and travel through the forest to a clearing where you can dip yourself in nature’s own hot tub. Just like a Thermospa hot tub, hot springs help relax muscle and joints and rejuvenate the skin by helping release dead cells. With a package treatment at Oaks of Ojai along with a hot springs dip, you’ll feel more relaxed than an infant cradled in its mother’s arms.

    The Homestead – Hot Springs, VA

    Speaking of Hot Springs, The Homestead has helped men and women relax since the time of our founding fathers. Opened in 1766, Thomas Jefferson was known to be a frequent visitor of this historic hotel. Newly renovated with the launch of Canyon Ranch SpaClub, there is plenty to experience with treatments that will relax your mind. Mineral wraps and herbal scrubs feel amazing after taking a soak in the natural 104 degree hot springs. Spend twenty minutes reviving your muscles and refreshing your skin before returning to the spa’s center for modern and natural treatments to rejuvenate body and soul.

    Miraval Resort – Tucson, AZ

    Here’s a perfect spot to combine a peaceful experience of a spa with the invigorating energy of an exercise routine. Miraval Resort in Tucson’s Santa Catalina mountains combines fitness, spa treatments, hiking, adventure activities, and even special classes like photography to allow a person to recharge their batteries while discovering new adventure. Each guest is given a $130 credit to use toward private classes, exquisite dinners, and even drinks. Their spa and hot tubs are some of the best in the country with classes featuring aqua therapists to help find enlightenment and discover the healing powers of water.

    Terranea – Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

    What better place to rejuvenate the body and spirit than oceanside in a beautiful and modern resort. Terranea launched just this year and is already one of the hottest spots for Angelenos as well as all of America. With the option of booking small, private bungalows, you can stay for 3 to 7 nights. The retreat comes with a consultation and custom-chosen spa treatments to fill your specific needs. While their saunas and hot tubs can calm your every nerve, don’t underestimate the power of the Pacific and take a dip or go kayaking up the coast.

    Mii Amo Enchantment Resort – Sedona, AZ

    Welcome to Travel+Leisure’s number-one destination spa and resort. Part of the beautiful Sedona deserts, Mii Amo at the Enchantment Resort is the place to rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit. With hour-long treatments that combine the power of guided healing visualization, energy balancing, and massage, anyone who stays here comes back home a different person. A relaxed spa retreat, there are cooking demos, makeup application classes, wine tastings and more. It’s truly an exquisite place to renew yourself.

    Although a few days away at one of these amazing resorts can help rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit, what can you do for the other 360 days out of the year?  We suggest considering a Thermospas hot tub for all your relaxation needs. With varying sizes and customizable jets, you can create the perfect spa in your own house or patio. Let the warm water and active bubbles sooth your body and relax your mind. The luxury of a spa and resort in your own backyard.
