Chill power

At the Amathus Beach Hotel Limassol in Cyprus, guests can enjoy deluxe accommodation. But the biggest draw is the new 2,000-square-metre Amathus Spa & Wellness Centre which perfectly combines the elements of air, earth, fire and water to create an ideal environment to chill. There's a great gymnasium overlooking the pool and beach and swimming pools surrounded by landscaped lawns and gardens ... how can one not relax? For details visit

City oasis

In the heart of hectic Shanghai is the PuLi Hotel and Spa, a calming contemporary oasis that has all the bases covered: luxurious accommodation, superb dining at the Jing'An restaurant and five-star pampering Shanghai-style at the Anantara Spa. The PuLi has 209 rooms and 20 suites with earthy tones and, after a day of shopping or meetings, there's no better spot to unwind than at the spa. For more details visit

Mexican crave

The Banyan Tree Spa in Mayakoba, on Mexico's stunning Riviera Maya, is the ideal place to revive the senses. Treatments combine Asian therapies, but the highlight is the Rainforest, a hydrothermal experience combining the best of European spa and hydrothermal therapy. For more visit

In the swing of things

The Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach - a playground of the rich and famous in exclusive South Florida - has opened Eau Spa: 42,000 square feet of palacial glamour. At the heart of the spa is an open-air garden where guests can chill away in swinging chairs that float above a shallow pool as water cascades around them. If that's too much to handle then claim a chaise lounge and a glass of champagne and drift away. For more information, go to
