LOOKING FOR LISTS FROM OTHER YEARS?

Hot List 2010

Spa Hamay, Aranwa Sacred Valley, Peru

Tel: 51-842-05080

What: A 25,000-square-footer within the new Aranwa Resort that out-equips any other Incan spa, with meditation chambers, three hydrotherapy pools, and the services of local shamans.
The look: Dark wood, stone, glass, and soft-blue lighting that resonates with the Vilcanota River, the Andean peaks, and the property's lush gardens.
Who goes: North Americans and wealthy Peruvians.
The treatment: A 50-minute Mystic Massage given by a poncho-wearing masseuse, who begins by warming your stone treatment table before a workover with hot stones and a body wrap with coca leaves. Afterward, your masseuse tells your future by the coca leaves stuck to your body.
P.S.: Retox with guinea pig confit at the Aranwa's Novo Andina restaurant (massages, $77).
