The best superyacht spas in the world

With onboard wellness an increasing priority for superyacht owners, spas on yachts are becoming even more luxurious. From saunas and steam rooms to live-in physical therapists, these superyachts spas have everything you need for a pampering at sea. We round up the best below...

Ahpo's leafy retreat

Curves, leaves, waves and bamboo – Ahpo's impressive spa was designed by interior outfitter List but guided by all things Gaia. Found on the lower deck, it encompasses a plunge pool, a Himalayan salt sauna, a Hamman and a massage room, each decorated with nature-themed mosaics and twinkling fibre optics in the ceiling. The wellness space also features its own hair salon, a fountain carved from ivory and onyx and a backlit statement wall, made by pressing artificial bamboo between two glass panes.

Force Blue's candle-lit Swiss spa

Captain Tarquini once called this spa "the pearl of [Force Blue]". Candlelit, black-tiled and staffed by a Chenot-trained therapist, it's easy to see where he was coming from. Amenities include a hair styling and make-up room, a separate massage room and a Hammam – though the "emotional shower" is the spa's conversation starter. On either side of the shower are alcoves with Chenot-derived pieces of speciality spa kit, a heated table used for mud wraps and a hydrotherapy bath for improved circulation and jet lag recovery. Stairs from the saloon lead directly to the spa, so it is easily accessible and can be enjoyed even when underway.

In 2021, Victorious debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show as a superyacht over 14 years in the making – and her beach-club spa was well worth the wait. Measuring 200 square metres, the space is decorated with mosaic tiles in shades of sky blue with amenities including two lounges and bars, three folding sea terraces, a dedicated gym, a massage and treatment room, a Hammam and a beauty salon. For any treatment or spa service, guests can rely on the two crew members who are fully qualified as an expert masseuse, spa therapist and fitness instructor.

Whisper's atmospheric spa

Placed deep within the ship, Whisper's Persian-inspired spa benefits from little motion and a darker, moodier ambience – creating what Pascal Reymond calls a "naturally [...] meditative space". Rich-coloured stones blended with glass and carved woods set the scene, while her lengthy list of services include a Hammam, steam shower, massage room, separate hair and beauty salon and dedicated onboard hairdresser. Hidden access also prevents crew and visiting therapists from disrupting owner areas.

Tatiana's secret leisure centre

When Tatiana is anchored the aft door and side terraces unfold, revealing her main attraction; an inviting spa. The leisure space encompasses two pools (one above the other) and two bars. Light comes from reveals in the walls and small LED lights which shine like tiny stars over a lounge adjacent to a shell door. Glass columns, Carrara marble and a backlit, blue agate floor near the bar complement the teak deck that surrounds the pool. There’s also a cosy massage room with another shell door, for a massage en plein air, a shower and a steam room to round out the indulgent space.

Ace's Romanesque spa

The 85-metre Ace (designed by Andrew Winch) is now believed to be named Eye following a recent, comprehensive refit. While the fate of her interiors is yet to be revealed, her original Romanesque spa is still worth an entry. Decorated with pietra dura (mosaics using semi-precious stones), Byzantine-style mosaic floors, columns and hand-painted trompe l’oeil lemon groves, Moran Yacht & Ship once described it as "one of the most beautiful and functional spas ever seen". Amenities include a Hammam, sauna, spa pool, icy plunge pool and a lounge adjacent to a huge fold-down sea terrace.
