  • The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Amelia Island
    Amelia Island, Fla.

    Today spas are all about highlighting the local culture, and this spa by the sea at the Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island nails it with a unique Heaven in a Hammock signature service. This unique service is a massage performed inside a hammock! Not only does the gentle swaying of the hammock sway one to relax, it also gives a weightlessness to the body that helps elongate the spine. It’s one of the spa’s most sensory experiences, and  one of the most unusual spa treatment found anywhere.
