Conde Nast Traveller Spa Awards: Best spas of 2018

An essential attribute to any spa experience is knowing you’re receiving only the best, so when you say to yourself in your head “does it get any better than this” you can relax knowing it really doesn’t! To ensure we always provide nothing but the best for our clients, we’ve worked with Conde Nast to deliver the 2018 Conde Nast Spa awards. Hosted at the luxurious Lanesborough Hotel on the 30th of January we featured only the best spa retreats, boot camps, medical spas, yoga retreats, detox and weight loss programmes from around the world, so here’s an in-depth look at some of the night's winners:
