Spa March Madness – Elite 8


It’s March, and in the USA, that means “fan”-tastic events are taking place for March Madness!  Each year, March Madness is one of the most popular fan participation events on the American sports calendar, but you’ll also see fun tournaments being played for everything from Best Brunch Spots to favorite television characters to this season of Dancing with the Stars.

We think it’s also a fun way to vote for favorite Spa Resorts and Hotels in playoffs for the vaulted title as Spa Index Readers’ Choice Favorite USA Spa Resort.

Encourage your friends and followers to vote for your favorite Spa Resorts with this graphic, which you’re welcome to share on social media platforms.   Use this graphic and URL.


We polled our editorial staff, our panel of more than 150 secret Spa Reviewers, and a diverse group of our most loyal newsletter subscribers in every region of the USA, to help us winnow down the list to 64 contender spa resorts ranging from urban city hotels, to mountain retreats, to desert hideaways, to ocean front luxury resorts.

Trust us — it was hard for everyone to choose ONLY 64 resorts, and it will be harder still to now vote weekly as the tournament progresses — because as one said “You won’t have a bad experience at any of these stellar destinations.”

Those same judges — and our visitors and guests — will now help us vote to advance contenders until the championship is announced — the crowning of the Reader’s Choice Favorite USA Spa Resort for 2017.
