Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Relax! Enjoy a massage that loosens those tense muscles, a facial that smoothes away worry lines and shadows around the eyes and a light cuisine that helps make you beautiful from the inside: the spa is where body and soul find their balance. The word "spa" comes originally from the Belgian city Spa whose healing springs were renowned even in Roman times. From the 16th century onwards, the kings of Europe came here to cure their ills. But today just trying to keep an overview of the global "wellness" industry with its multitude of eastern, western, traditional, modern, holistic and specialised spa practices can- in direct contrast to the spa philosophy! - be a rather stressful experience.

Riassunto: Chilling out around the world: Our guide to the choicest destinations What would you say to a tension-releasing massage, a rejuvenating facial or a soak in the healing waters of a thermal spring? Delicious, healthy cuisine and a lovely and comfortable room in which to relax at night? Mmmmmmmm... we thought so. Now the question is: which spa to choose? With TASCHEN’s Favourite Spas Angelika Taschen saves you the agony of choice and presents a selection of the most inviting destinations worldwide for the perfect spa holiday. Her journey takes us to heavenly oases such as the historical Pädaste Manor on the island of Muhu on Estonia’s west coast; the spa of the Grand Hotel Kronenhof at 5,900 feet, which delivers a picture book mountain view; to the Buddha-Bar Spa at the Hilton Évian-les-Bains in the classical French health resort, that combines treatments inspired by Tibetan medicine with modern east-meets-west design and the Shibui Spa in Robert De Niro’s Greenwich Hotel, housed in a 250-year-old Japanese farmhouse relocated to New York. Further dream destinations include the fantastic Oriental Spa at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental with its panoramic view of the Hong Kong skyline, and the Verana Day Spa, tucked away on the Mexican Pacific coast south of Puerto Vallarta, that is only accessible by boat.
