Now in its fifth year, our Readers' Choice Awards have become the industry's premier award program - the spa world's answer to the Academy Awards
Killington, VT (PRWEB) September 20, 2007
Spa Finder, Inc., the global spa resource, has announced that New Life Hiking Spa has been named among the top-10 best spas in the world for "Best for Weight Loss, Best for Hiking, Best for Fitness Program, Most Affordable and Best for Going Solo" in its fifth annual Spa Finder Readers' Choice Awards. Based on thousands of votes submitted by Spafinder.com visitors and Luxury SpaFinder Magazine, the awards represent the most complete consumer assessment of the global spa market.
"Now in its fifth year, our Readers' Choice Awards have become the industry's premier award program - the spa world's answer to the Academy Awards," said Spa Finder, Inc. President Susie Ellis. "With a huge surge in international voting and more than twice as many votes overall compared to last year, this represents an especially meaningful validation of the spa experience provided by New Life Hiking Spa."
New Life Hiking Spa was started by Jimmy LeSage who combined his talents as an expert chef and professional counselor to start New Life Hiking Spa in 1978. New Life Hiking Spa is renowned for being an affordable destination spa with some of the country's best hiking and fitness programming. New Life Hiking Spa is for individuals trying to improve their fitness level, eating habits or seeking a weight loss retreat during a healthy vacation.
This is the second year in a row New Life Hiking Spa has won in these five categories from the Spa Finder Reader's Choice Awards. New Life has also been selected as one of the top 10 places to get in shape by MSNBC and was chosen as one of the "eight weight loss vacations that really work" by SHAPE Magazine. New Life Hiking Spa is open from mid May through the end of September every year. 2008 will be New Life Hiking Spa's 30th Anniversary. More information on New Life Hiking Spa can be found on their website at http://www.newlifehikingspa.com.
To help spa consumers identify the best spas for their unique goals, Spa Finder asked its readers and web visitors to name their picks for the best spas in 23 specific categories -- from "best accommodations" and "best cuisine," to "best for men" and "best urban hotel spa." Spa-goers also selected their favorite spas in more than 20 global regions and their overall favorite spas on six continents. In all, ballots were cast for more than 1,500 different spa properties worldwide. Voters were asked to only cast ballots for stay spas they've personally visited within the past three years.
