This year’s Top 100 Spas includes 73 spas from the United States (including 14 from region-leading California), 17 spas from Canada, four from Mexico, one each from the Bahamas, Brazil and Costa Rica. The No.1 spa for 2018 was the hiking and healthy-living focused New Life Hiking Spa in Killington, Vermont – its fifth time in the top spot.

City spas proved the most popular spa experience in 2018, with 20 spas offering accessible health and well-being in exciting urban destinations.
