    The immutable wellness capital of Bali and, indeed, Indonesia, unfurls a spectacular sequence of spas that make good use of a natural backdrop of lush hinterland canopy forests. One Bali luxury hotel, however, has no rival. The The Samaya Villas in Ayung valley is ace in the Ayurvedic department.

    Fernland Spa Thermal Mineral Springs, Bethlehem, Tauranga, Bay of Plenty

    For thermal destress par excellence, New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty is, well, plenty. The Tauranga suburb of Bethlehem is home to a mecca of detox in Fernland Spa. Bathe in 100% pure soda, lucid non-chlorinated mineral water, enjoy a massage and, to top it off, throw a (healthy BBQ) on the gorgeous grounds.

    The Byron at Byron Resort & Spa, Byron Bay, New South Wales

    Byron Bay: where you can ride waves one minute and be in down-dog the next. Yoga hub, surfer culture capital and wellness beach town, Byron Bay is Australia’s version of Rishikesh, India … sort of. While no ashram, the luxe Byron at Byron Resort & Spa is where to go for blissful soul stimuli.

    Saffire Freycinet, Coles Bay, Tasmania

    It may take more effort to get to Coles Bay from the likes of Sydney but when the end of the line is one of the most extraordinary luxury resorts not just Down Under but, indeed, on the planet, the trip is well worth it. The Saffire Freycinet is the “Jewel of Tasmania” and sits in the heart of picturesque Oyster Bay. Spa, cuisine, rooms – all immaculate.

    Yangmingshan, Taiwan

    If you catch a monumental whiff of sulphur in Yangmingshan National Park, Taipei, it bodes well for your aches and cares. Geothermal groundwater is just around the corner. Yes, Yangmingshan is at the core of Taiwan’s onsen-style culture and duly lures hordes of worn salarymen to hot panacea pools.

    Gora Kadan, Hakone, Ashigarashimo, Kanagawa, Japan

    The best luxury onsen in Japan is a relatively short drive or commute from Shinjuku or Shibuya, Tokyo. Gora Kadan is more than just a bucolic ryokan – much, much more. The Relais & Chateaux property is exclusive, pristinely posh but still secures a foothold in pure onsen authenticity. For this, the Hakone gem deserves a special visit.

    Taj Lake Palace Jiva Spa, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India

    The “Lake City” and “Venice of the East” that is peerless Udaipur, Rajastjan, is home to arguably the best luxury hotel resort in all of India, if not Asia. The Taj Lake Palace Jiva Spa has won innumerable awards and accolades from industry experts and journalists and the hotel is a perpetual traveller’s choice for service and luxury. The “Romantic Spa Indulgence” package on the Jiva Spa boat is a five-hour buffet of signature massages and scrubs (and Peshawari food) that couples will not soon forget.
