In a lovely glass-walled building full of bamboo, smooth river rocks and soothing tones, SpaTerre at La Torretta Lake Resort is a relaxing oasis even without booking a treatment. Between the steamy, eucalyptus-scented Turkish hamam, a lounge with massage chairs and views of the zen garden, and the outdoor float pool, hours seem to wile away. Of course, you're here for the treatments, which are also top-notch: massages, body scrubs and wraps, and salon services. We recommend the internationally-themed rituals, combos calling up the scents and therapies from Italy (vinotherapy, aromatherapy, a wine salt glow, Swedish massage, and a unique Roman Lambrusco and Venus Mourvèdre Signature Body Treatment), Fiji (a bath of pure coconut milk followed by a coconut crème scrub, a signature chromatherapy shower, and massage), India (Ayurvedic therapies, a relaxing bath, Herbal Bindi Body Treatment and Shirodhara, which aims to relieve mental tension and stress while balancing the emotions), and Thailand (Thai Herbal Bath, Thai Facial Massage, a coconut milk body scrub, a chromatherapy experience shower, an essential oil-enriched Thai Massage, and a traditional Thai Foot Massage).
The locker room showers are incredible even by spa standards, with a half-dozen heads and settings from intense massage to rainfall.
