Alvear Spa & Fitness Center, Buenos Aires

Tel: 54-11-4808-2145

Minimalist and modern, this unexpected oasis of simplicity sits amid the Belle Epoque glamour of the Alvear Palace Hotel. Treatments hew to old-school Euro pampering ways with Swiss La Prairie products, used in the Pressure Relief Treatment ($203), a 90-minute facial and body massage designed to induce maximum relaxation. Post-massage, shed some toxins in the sauna and then soak in the whirlpool, the spa's highlight. Be sure to move around in the pool—there's a circuit of submerged jets aimed to stimulate different pressure points (massages, $115).
