8 Wellness Wonders of the World
Compiled by | Ayesha Augustine-Almeida

Spa Mantra globe trots to find the most effective and innovative holistic destinations of modern age.

It is tough to bridge the gap or to blend in ancient science with modern-age technology in a spa or a wellness center to promote mental and physical care. Why? Because it calls upon every aspect or element that needs to be incepted, conceptualized and managed to bring it to life; from its ambiance to its structure (building, landscape, etc.), and from its trained manpower (spa therapists) to licensed medical staff (doctors, nurses and assistants) and of course dining and accommodations also top the list. Only a handful of wellness set ups crack the code and manage to blend both worlds, accurately. We list some of these fantastic holistic destinations, their facilities and services in this visual feature.
