Looking to escape to far off lands and be pampered like royalty?

Check out our picks for the six best spas from all over the world.

1. Six Senses Spa at Evason Ma'In Hot Springs, Jordan

An oasis in the middle of the desert, the Evason Ma'In lies 264 m below sea level. The hot springs are fed by a waterfall from the Dead Sea, which is famed for its regenerative properties, and treatments at the Six Senses Spa focus on the healing minerals of these waters.

Top treatment: The traditional Rose Hammam treatment uses eucalyptus black soap to purify the body, then an exfoliating treatment sloughs off dry skin, and the body is covered in a healing rose clay body mask. The treatment is capped off with body oil to soften and nourish the skin.

2. The Mekong Spa at La Résidence Phou Vao, Laos

Atop a hill overlooking the mountains and the ancient royal city of Luang Prabang, the Mekong Spa at La Résidence Phou Vao will quickly have you feeling like royalty. The pavilions of the spa are built in the traditional Laotian style and set among a garden with a lily pond. Enjoy a day of pampering in the traditional Laotian steam bath, a dip in the hotel's infinity pool, or with a bowl of aor lam at the Phou Savanh restaurant.

Top treatment: Their Jet Lag Delight treatment, a full body massage featuring citrus and Japanese mint essential oils, is a particular favourite among guests. The spa only uses organic Jurlique products, or pure botanical plants from nearby organic farms or gardens.

3. ESPA Riga, Latvia

Riga is one of the hidden gems of Europe - its historical centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, noted for its stunning 19th century wooden architecture. This gorgeous backdrop works as a perfect juxtaposition to the modern, sleek interiors of the ESPA Riga (which are almost worth the trip alone). Award-winning treatments, natural products and state-of-the-art technology mixed with old-world charm create the perfect balance for savvy spa-goers.

Top treatment: The spa is well known for its skin treatments, designed to combat cold weather, such as the Restorative Body Ritual, a salt and oil scrub followed by a nourishing body wrap with Oshadi clay and marine algae. It's accompanied by an acupuncture facial massage to replenish the skin, and finished off with a full body massage.

4. The Spa at the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris

The Hotel George V was built in 1928 just off the Champs-Elysées. It is probably one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, and boasts an impressive art collection and decadent décor. The spa only enhances the hotel's reputation for luxury: there are saunas, whirlpools and an indoor pool, salon services and a broad menu of decadent facials and massages for a day of pampering fit for royalty.

Top treatment: One of their signature treatments is called "A Stroll to Versailles," and it is based on the beauty rituals of Marie Antoinette. It features her favourite scent - orange blossom - and involves a body scrub, shea butter massage and finished with a milky facial and macarons.

5. The Nira Spa at the Shanti Maurice, Mauritius

The Shanti Maurice resort on the island of the Mauritius in the Indian Ocean is quite possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world. The island itself is a unique blend of cultures - Arab, Indian, Dutch, British and French. The Nira Spa combines Ayurvedic regimens with contemporary treatments to offer a one-of-a-kind spa experience. The spa therapists work with nutritionists, personal trainers, yoga masters and Ayurvedic physicians to bring both mind and body into harmony.

Top treatment: The Sega Ritual starts with a full body sugar scrub, followed by an anti-aging spray (a mix of hyaluronic acid and collagen).

The treatment can even be done on the beach at sunset with a bonfire and rum cocktail to finish.

This medical resort has won many awards for its mix of spa pampering, detoxifying treatments, weight loss and physical fitness programs. The secluded hotel sits on the bank of the beautiful Lake Wörthersee, and boasts a pool and beach for swimming, and a golf course.

Top treatment:The FX Mayr treatment is world-renowned for naturally purifying and cleansing the body.
