The jungle of the Golden triangle in Thailand is not the most likely location you would expect to find a rich vein of exceptionally high quality spa resorts. While some resorts here have a strong focus on Buddhist principles, they all offer a quality of experience that seems easier to accommodate here in Thailand than other locations. The country seems entirely dedicated in dedication to professional hospitality at its best.

Another outstanding location is Europe. Besides a rich historical past, this wealthy location has all sorts of scenic splendors and things to see and do. From the spectacular slopes of Scandinavia, to the humid Mediterranean peninsulas, something is always there to steal your attention.
