Airports with best spa facilities

  • Imagine the hustle-bustle a newly married couple goes through while packing for their honeymoon right after the wedding. Most Indian couples plan their honeymoon a week or month after the wedding. However, with the busy lifestyle it is kind of impossible to get away for longer honeymoon a month after the wedding. Thus, the new trend of clubbing the wedding with honeymoon is setting in.

    More and more Indian couples now put in efforts to plan their honeymoon months in advance. For the couples who plan the ‘Big fat wedding’, it is obvious to plan a long honeymoon to exotic destinations like Bora-Bora, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, Brazil, Paris or even on cruise liners in Alaska or Bahamas. However, in such high profile weddings and honeymoon, the bride and groom energy levels go completely for a toss. Thus, the best time to de-stress and relax their senses is at airports! Yes, now-a-days the modern airports offer some excellent wellness facilities.

    Treatment options are often tailored to people in transit-chair massages and other curtailed treatments for travellers in a hurry, though some airport spas offer full spa menus. Below are the top airport spas of the world where you can do your ‘mani-pedi’ for your ‘big holiday’.
