LOOKING FOR LISTS FROM OTHER YEARS?

Hot List 2011

Spa Fasano by Renata de Abreu, La Barra, Uruguay

Tel: 598-42-67-00-00
Massages, $120-$255

What: Brazilian therapist Renata de Abreu's seventh outlet overlooks acres of craggy grassland, copses, and ponds at Rogério Fasano's countryside resort. De Abreu augments locally produced honey, wine, and olive oil with Germaine de Capuccini products.

The look: Light gushes through large picture windows to a warren of treatment rooms, pools, steam rooms, and styling salons in a blunt concrete building that blends with the hillside's lichen-coated granite outcrops.

Who goes: South American glitterati and Brazilian honeymooners.

The treatment: The decadent 150-minute Olive Therapy treatment rejuvenates hair and body with extra-virgin olive oil from a neighboring farm.

P.S.: Expect to be quizzed first on your irritability, worry, insomnia, and stress.
