Last night Divia Thani, Global Editorial Director. Condé Nast Traveller and Simon Leadsford, Publishing Director, hosted Condé Nast Traveller’s Wellness & Spa Awards for 2023 in association with Healing Holidays. The event took place at The Lanesborough Hotel in London. 

These are the Condé Nast Traveller Spa Guide winners for 2023: the top-level retreats and medi-clinics, the most-results-driven health centres and the slickest spas.

From sound baths in the Maldives to recovery lounges in Napa Valley, 2023 is set to see boundary-pushing wellness trends in the travel world, and, closer to home, mental health retreats in the UK are becoming an increasingly common holiday break.
