• 1. WELLNESS SPA, THE SINGULAR PATAGONIA, PUERTO NATALES, CHILE
  • Two hours from São Paulo, in the heart of the “Hamptons of Brazil,” this brand-new resort boasts amenities including a private cinema, a five-star wine cellar, and a stable stocked with Olympic-caliber horses. Given that one of the founders is Gordon Roddick, of the Body Shop fame, it’s no surprise that the spa is world-class. (<a href=botanique.com.br) GO FOR: The Terra Brasils. Guests choose which of the 28 locally sourced essential oils they’d like for their 80-minute deep-tissue massage. It’s followed by a light coating of mineral-rich clay that leaves the skin cleansed and invigorated. DON’T FORGET: Belle by Sigerson Morrison sandals, $295, bellenyc.com">
  • The spa’s philosophy of reconnecting to one’s “essential self” seems appropriate, considering how long it takes to reach this slice of paradise. Here, you can indulge in Ayurvedic and holistic therapies as well as more-Western treatments that incorporate luxury skincare lines like Valmont and Ila. (<a href=viceroyhotel.com/maldives) GO FOR: The Viceroy Must. First, the body is exfoliated with a scrub to either detox, energize, or relax; next comes a four-hands massage. Finally, guests can choose either an antiaging facial—with medical-grade pure collagen— or an essential-oil-based calming one. DON’T FORGET: Missoni bikini, $355, missoni.com">
