Asia-Pacific high budget: Bali, Indonesia
You will want to stay a full two weeks in Bali, where they believe in Tri Hita Karana, a three-pronged life balance philosophy: harmony with God, harmony with fellow humans and harmony with nature. Start your stay at The Villas Bali Seminyak  with a jet lag remedy, complete with peppermint-infused foot bath. (They also often offer massages at their Prana Spa as booking bonuses, so be sure to ask.) Bali is hot-hot-hot all year long, so pack your sunscreen.

Asia Pacific low budget: Phuket, Thailand
The “Thai massage” is such a staple that you will find it on spa menus around the world. But in Phuket, in southern Thailand, you can try to find the best one — a task that is neither a hardship on your body nor your wallet. Even at the spas affiliated with high-end US chain hotels, like the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort and Spa, you will pay considerably less than you would elsewhere. The rainy season in Phuket is long, but it stays very warm and relatively dry between November and April. You will want to spend at least a week.
