Hot List 2011

Vidago Palace Spa, Vidago, Portugal

Tel: 351-276-990-970
Massages, $116-$259

What: Sleek white-marble annex by architect Álvaro Siza Vieira at one of Portugal's most charming grand hotels, with 20 treatment rooms and a superb spa menu featuring therapies with waters from the Vidago source.

The look: Marble is softened by votive candles and gentle lighting—the effect is more sensual shrine than Euro clinic.

Who goes: Gorgeous honeymooners, sexy second wives who don't golf (the Palace has one of Portugal's best courses), arty types from Oporto.

The treatment: The reviving 160-minute Ultimate Vidago Experience includes a lavender-and-rosemary-scented bath in Vidago water, a stress-releasing massage, and a detox facial.

P.S.: Ask for Juliana—her sweet personality belies her amazingly powerful digits.
