Are you craving for a short vacation and it is too hot for skiing but not warm enough to go to the beach? Or maybe you are very stressed and want to relax? Or you want to surprise your partner with a romantic weekend?

Well, in this case (or any of these cases), I suggest looking for a spa resort. Winter or summer, a spa resort can offer you the oasis of tranquility and relaxation you were hoping for. From the most basic to the most state-of-the-art spa center, US resorts offer you a great variety of options: 

Cal-a-Vie Spa, California

This spa resort is not big – just 32 villas – yet it offers some of the most complete and intimate spa experience in California. The architecture of the buildings imitate the one in Southern France and Southern Italy, while the landscape is typical for Southern California country side. Guests have access to various spa treatments including facials and massage, can sign up for Pilates or aerobic classes, or can simply take long nature walks in the nearby hills.

Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, Arizona

This luxurious resort near Phoenix is known as one of the top spa resorts in the US. A resort with tradition, Biltmore was inaugurated 1929 and designed by one of the most successful architects of that era.  A lavish lounge with live music every might, a boutique hotel and the exuberant gardens create the perfect setting for a relaxing vacation. The organic spa promises all the blessings of nature along with a state-of-the-art beauty salon.

Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, California

The area of Los Angeles is famous for its luxurious spas. If you want to get pampered Hollywood Style and find out the secret behind the beauty of Hollywood celebrities, then Ojai Valley might be the place for you. Tucked between the sunny hills of California, and a short drive from Los Angeles, the Ojai is famous for its trademark Moroccan Spa.  In addition to steam rooms and baths that are specific to North Africa, you will also have access to a body sculpting center offering yoga, Pilates classes and various other similar activities.

Nothing can outmatch a Hawaiian vacation, especially when it also includes access to one of the world’s premiere spas. This spa in Hawaii is unbeatable in terms of hydrotherapy and steam baths. It has several types of steam rooms and pools, each specific to a certain region or culture: Roman, Japanese, Swiss. There are few dozen treatments in the spa menu, and you’ll also have access to the resort’s top notch fitness center.
