Written by Ana Grilo

A day at the spa is an undeniable luxury. But the benefits of a mineral soak, a deep-tissue massage or a reflexology session can go far beyond a gratuitous endorphins boost: For the athletically inclined, an indulgent spa treatment is restorative bodywork. From runners to golfers to skiers to surfers, athletes of all types and levels aim for maximum physical efficiency—and spas have stepped up to help.

With the arrival of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, also the football players need this hotel experience, which is essential for the mind to clear, allowing the athlete to focus on their own competitive or personal fitness goals. Whatever your preference, the best hotel spas for athletes are sure to keep you in the game.
