Resort Spa


What's the difference between a resort spa and a destination spa?  If you're being extremely strict the difference would be that a destination spa offers a regime of treatments whereas a resort spa, with often the same facilities, offers these à la carte, i.e. you pick and choose.


There's often no difference at all between a resort spa and a hotel spa (if it's a nice hotel), although in some places, particularly Florida, as soon as a hotel starts calling itself a resort you may find an extra resort fee added to your bill.


As many so called destination spas can also offer à la carte services is there really any difference?
