Bordeaux-Martillac, France
The old-growth vineyards of the Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte, just outside Bordeaux, surround this hotel spa; the term "vinotherapy" was practically invented here.

Signature Treatment: The Special Caudalie Cure, a customized multi-day package that might include a grape marc bath, a crushed Cabernet body scrub, and a Merlot body wrap (2 days, $500).
