Why Not Spend Fall in the Spa?

Posted on 08/30/2017

Fall is on the way and family vacations are out of the way. With the kids back in school, it’s time for a break just for you.

Where to get away from it all?

We have some recommendations for the best spa breaks any parents could ask for. Call the nanny and check into one of these fine properties for a week or a long weekend:


Cross the pond to Italy and recharge on an island known for its healing properties.

In Ischia, Italy, wellness-enthusiasts can check into the L'Albergo Della Regina Isabella Resort & Health Spa. The resort is conveniently located in the port and offers a long list of homegrown spa treatments, wellbeing activities, spa cuisine and even rehabilitation programs that incorporate the 176-degree hyperthermal volcanic waters along with the mineral-rich earth found in the island’s natural caves.

What to try: Fangoterapia is an exfoliating body treatment that oxidizes and purifies the skin with mud which has steeped for six months in the thermal waters.


Jet off to Singapore for East-Asian therapeutic traditions. The Fullerton Hotel, located in Marina Bay, is home to one of the country’s best destination spas. There are seven treatment rooms as well as a 25-meter pool and a long menu of services designed to inspire relaxation. Treatments can improve deep sleep, relieve muscle fatigue and boost energy levels.

What to try: The Asian Heritage Signature Ritual includes Chinese-inspired massage based on Qi energy flow and the body’s meridians.


For a shorter sojourn, escape to the Caribbean and bask in the sun on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches at Zemi Beach House Resort & Spa. Located in Shoal Bay Village, Anguilla, the hotel’s Signature Zemi Thai House Spa is a haven for healing rituals.

Guests can enjoy secluded spa villas, rain showers, a hammam, a fresh juice, a meditation garden, daily yoga classes and more. The spa offers exclusive Taino-inspired healing treatments, mud baths, beauty remedies and detox cleanses.

What to try: Elemental Harmony is a healing ritual that touches on all of the senses. It begins with a sensory experience followed by a rejuvenating exfoliation, a deep tissue massage and concludes with a hydrating botanical facial.


Take one last trip to the seaside in New England before the seasons change with a trip to the Inn by the Sea in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Spend the weekend soaking up the scents of the ocean as you stroll along the mile-long sandy beach and indulge at the spa with a lengthy list of therapies, face and body treatments inspired by the ocean.

What to try: The Sea Waves massage synchronizes long strokes with the sea’s ebb and flow emitted from a surround sound massage table.
