Massage in your basement? A private sauna session followed by a cold plunge—party of one? Not only are home spas more convenient—literally just a few rooms away—but they are also far more private and personal than heading to a typical spa, fitness studio or gym. Since the pandemic, the way people interact with their homes has changed dramatically, and for those with room to spare, some amenities that were once nice-to-have features have become essential. Spas at home mean you can enjoy a facial or massage in a private and comfortable environment. Especially when it comes to health-centric amenities, such as infrared saunas, steam rooms or cold plunges, people are more likely to shell out for features that can benefit their health. Many spas these days, those bastions of tranquility, also include meditation or yoga rooms.
Here, we’ve rounded up residences across the globe with the most epic home spas, from ocean-facing yoga rooms and meditation rooms to 30-person Jacuzzis and private massage rooms. Read on to discover examples of at-home relaxation at its finest.
