Santa Monica, California (Vocus/PRWEB) January 07, 2011
The spa travel website Spas of America today announced their annual ranking of the Top 50 Spas, based on consumer behavior on their website. “This year the list includes wine-tasting spas in Ontario and California, destination spas in Utah and the Midwest, and ocean spa experiences in Hawaii and British Columbia. The Top 50 Spas of 2010 offers insight into what spa consumers around the world are viewing,” says Spas of America president Craig Oliver.
Topping the list for 2010 is 100 Fountain Spa at the Pillar and Post, located in the charming town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. Only minutes from Niagara Falls, 100 Fountain Spa is a year-round destination offering a wide range of cultural, historical and recreational activities.
Second place goes to the Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge in Ivins, Utah. Set amidst the stunning red rocks of southwestern Utah, the Biggest Loser Resort is a “destination spa,” offering an affordable, comprehensive health and fitness experience focusing on exercise, healthy nutrition and education.
Virginia’s The Homestead placed third on the list. Situated in the scenic Allegheny Mountains and built in 1892, the Homestead Spa is one of America’s most historic luxury spas, still fed by the original hot springs that have attracted travelers since the 1700s.
Fourth place went to Northern California’s Wine & Roses, in picturesque Lodi Wine Country. A short drive from San Francisco or Sacramento, Wine & Roses offers guests a warm and inviting relaxation experience.
Rounding out the top five is the grand hotel affectionately known as the “Pink Palace of the Pacific,” the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, Abhasa Spa. Set on 10 acres of prime Waikiki beachfront on the south shore of Oahu Island, the Royal Hawaiian is a popular beach spa escape.
