As travelers seek destinations that offer more than just scenic beauty or cultural enrichment, the travel industry is rising to the occasion with lavish spa and wellness hotels. From serene mountain retreats to luxurious oceanfront resorts, 2024 promises some spectacular new spa and wellness hotels. Here are some of the most anticipated openings to watch out for.

With a focus on outdoor activities like hiking, ice-climbing, yoga in the midnight sun and seeking the Aurora Borealis in winter, Six Senses Svart will become the ultimate wellness retreat.
