Most Expensive Spa Treatment across the globe!


Just writing about this super luxurious indulgences makes me feel like hopping on to the next plane to one of these destinations. It’s a trend these days to spend more time and more money for some cool spa treatments. Here is some factual data to prove it – In 2006, 144 million people booked a spa visit, a 10% increase from 2005, according to research provided by Spafinder.com, the online spa directory. This year, that number is expected to rise to 160 million. Today, luxury spas are racing one another. As spa-goers become more sophisticated and better-traveled, they expect more from a spa experience than ever before, and they’re willing to pay for it. As a result spas worldwide are adding private suites, Japanese baths, rain showers and an ever-more-exotic array of treatments, therapies and fitness programs, influenced by everything from the traditions of far-flung cultures to cutting-edge medical technology, in order to stand out, cash in and attract new customers. How much do these out-of-this-world treatments leave you lighter……by wallet? Just read on to know!
