Luxury Travel = Luxury Spas

When I think of Fab Travel I think of enjoying a star-studded day at a Cabo spa. Massage, facial, body wrap, mud mask, sauna, mani, pedi, the whole she-BANG. Ahhhh, pampering.

Here are the top spas from across the globe. If you can't actually go to them, maybe you can relax by visualizing yourself there...

This Parisian spa has all the good stuff but where it really shines is with its private treatment rooms, a private VIP room with a whirlpool, sauna, steam bath and two massage beds, and a relaxation room with three lounge chairs and private music stations. Talk about luxury!
