While spas in more natural settings are typically considered more relaxing, spas in the city offer a convenient welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Zermatt Resort is a like a quick little getaway in Switzerland. The only difference? You’ll also have all the American creature comforts you’re used to.
