I love spas. The whole process of spending a whole day going from massage to steam room to facial is my personal version of ultimate relaxation. Plus, wearing a bathrobe all day is actually socially acceptable (and encouraged) there. With 2016 coming to and end. I’ve rounded up the very best spa day breaks for you to escape to. These spas are so luxurious, prepare to get so much wanderlust that you’ll be opening a airline tab within 5 minutes….
