From Snail Massage Facials to Fish Pedicures

 - Sep 17, 2013
Whether you're looking for a one of a kind spa treatment or the height of luxury, these opulent and unusual spa services show the lengths some establishments will go to to pamper their clients.

While some focus on bizarre treatments, like snail facials, fish pedicures or beer bathtubs, others focus on an overall experience. This might combine Mozart, ice cream and mattresses, or it might be a holistically themed retreat. One spa in particular focuses on using candy-colored hues in all their decor in an effort to create an effervescent and sweet atmosphere for visitors.

Even though spa services are typically a way to pamper the stressed, some of these luxurious innovations are the opposite of relaxing. An excellent example might be the protruding spa in Shanghai, where the glass-floored structure hovers stories above the busy city center.
