Spa Blog Guide

by Glenn Reynolds

Trying to find great spa blogs online is very difficult. Maybe there aren’t that many good ones out there yet. Here is a list of the ones that I’ve come across, in no particular order…

The Land of Spa

This blog delves into more spiritual and holistic practices in spas, asking incisive questions about spa practices and future innovations. Rose is an experienced journalist with an extensive background in health and spas.


Travel to Wellness

A Canadian based publication, with founder/editor Anne Dimon drawing together articles, reviews and information from sources mostly in North America, but some international focus. Has a section on Spas for men. Recent makeover has rejuvenated the site with vigour.

Spa Flyer

More of a front window into a directory of spas, this blog gives a taste of spas and leads you to further info on the main website. Provides some news and trend information, but without critique.


Susie’s Spa Blog

Experienced spa traveller Susie Ellis writes a blog across many spa topics, mostly with a US focus. This blog is connected with the huge Spa Finder website where you can read introductions for spas throughout North America and beyond (not many spas from Australia). Not much in the way of independent reviewing though.

Spas of Life

Another blog that is really just a window to a larger directory of spas, Craig Oliver presents a wide range of spas across North and South America (not many from the South, though). Large plans to expand across the globe with future directories listed for most regions of the world. Good for planning travel. Not much in the way of independent reviewing.

The Spa College Blog

Just recently come across this one as it is fairly new. Seems to be written with spa professionals in mind, along with spa enthusiasts. Informative and encouraging.

Times Online Good Spa Guide

Great reviews, easy to navigate, this online site for the Times newspaper in the UK is a great reference for travelling. They offer concise and witty reviews of spas, with basic, useful information. Although the spas are mostly in Britain, they have reviews of around 60 spas around Europe and a scattering further afield. A good read.

What great spa blogs or sites do you read?

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for giving The Land of Spa a mention! I have run across a few other blogs on spas, but, like you, not many. The first on the list is spagoer. It’s a directory of sorts, but also has reviews. Bernard Burt is an industry leader and professional. I believe he was one of the founders of the International Spa Association (ISPA).

Great blog guide! I have been looking all over for quality guides. Lately I have been trying out a variety of my local Chicago Spas and wondered if you ever review my area?

Great post! If anyone is looking for a Day Spa in Tulsa I LOVE Spa Lux! They do a really good job. I got a facial there the other day and it was fabulous. Check out their website http://www.spalux.org.

How about mentioning some affordable but well established spas like Ixtapan Spa Hotel and Golf Resort at http://www.spamexico.com. Regular people cannot afford the luxury places on most websites, but this one has it all at fair prices with reliable quality.

In response to Phylis's comment a good way to get an affordable luxury facial is to find someone who works for themselves vs. a spa where the esthetician has no control over pricing. My wife is an example. She rent's space at a couple day spas in carlsbad, ca. Google Aesthetician and find some local people who are willing to cut deal for the extra business. Especially when the economy isn't the best, one of the first items cut is pampering facials so I'm sure there's some people in your area who could use the extra business.

I understand the need to find a great spa here in Australia. Everytime I go to one a problem always arises … the only spa that is perfection most of the time is Yindi Day Spa in the Blue Mountains outside sydney

Thanks for your comments AmandaH. Hopefully you can find a few more alternatives in your search for quality spas… We could all do with a little diversity in our diet!
