The definition of a spa arises from a place with natural healing waters, such as mineral springs, hot springs and the like. Historically spas were often defined as a destination for those seeking cures for ailments, as the natural spa water was hailed for its therapeutic purposes. Most definitions seem to agree that a spa is where there is a natural water source - either for drinking or bathing - that has health-generating properties. As time went by, people came to appreciate the benefit of relaxation and viewed a spa as a place to rest, reflect, and regenerate the spirit.
In recent years, there has been a marked increase in the growth of resort spas around the world. These are not necessarily locations of naturally occurring mineral springs, though some are, but as places where one may luxuriate in a relaxing environment, enjoy a massage, and be pampered. From facials to body and skin treatments, aromatherapy, scrubs and wraps, manicures and pedicures, saunas and dip pools, the guest can be sure to find a tropical spa retreat is a place to luxuriate.
"If you have a really busy and stimulating stressful life, the only way that you can keep that going is through relaxation".
