Extend Your Stay for These Hotel Spas

Is the spa always your favorite part of staying in a hotel? Like we even had to ask. Check out the spas at three new hotels—in Japan, Iceland, and Anguilla—this summer. Then return to an old favorite in Austria this winter. Your jet-lagged muscles thank you in advance.

Tokyo: Find a sculpted garden and a ryokan-style building, remove your shoes on soft tatami mats, relax in your Yuri room, eat artful plates from an award-winning chef, and discover the hidden hot spring at a zen hotel in Japan.

Grindavík: Visit one of the most popular spots in the country, gaze at 800-year-old lava flows, sleep in a new sleek hotel, sip cocktails around a fire pit, eat a seven-course dinner featuring food from local farms, and find the spa among lava corridors in Iceland.

Lech: Plan your first winter ski trip to the birthplace of modern alpine skiing, find the largest connected ski area in the country, stay in a ski-in/ski-out hotel, sip a glass of wine on the terrace après-ski, and relax in the indoor pool or the outdoor jacuzzi before dinner at an elegant Italian restaurant in Austria.

Shoal Bay Village: Escape to a new resort in the Caribbean, explore a recently designated national park, walk along a rose-white beach, eat lobster empanadas and Colombian prawn croquettes at the beachfront restaurant, and relax in a meditation garden filled with orchids and the island’s only hammam on Anguilla.
