Spas with a View

Spa lovers, you know the drill. The lights dim, you're artfully cocooned in white linens, the comfy massage table swallows you up, and your eyes drift closed…Actually, hold that last thought: We've found ten spas—all featured on Condé Nast Traveler's 2011 Hot List of the top new spas worldwide—where the best part of your treatment might just be the jaw-dropping view. Watch fish dart gracefully beneath you through a panel in the floor of your overwater treatment room, admire the starry mountaintop scenery from the comfort of your herb-infused soaking pool, or drink in the skyline of the buzzy city below as you sink your toes into a footbath. These dreamy spas will inspire you to open your eyes and say aaaaah.

Plus: Don't miss Condé Nast Traveler's roundup of the 250 best spas in the United States, Mexico, Caribbean, and Canada, including a complete guide to spa etiquette.
