Millennium Hotels and Resorts prides itself on matching its deluxe rooms and high-end service with outstanding spa treatments to relax, restore, and rejuvenate tired muscles. Here are 5 special spas to provide that extra touch of indulgence while travelling.
Sky Spa & Health Club at Grand Millennium Amman, Jordan
A hammam experience at Sky Spa
A deserving nominee of the World Luxury Spa Awards, the sumptuous Sky Spa offers you a slice of serenity after a day of business or sightseeing in this vibrant capital city. If you’ve never experienced an authentic hammam, you’ll be glad to know this invigorating bath will leave you with glowing skin. In Islamic cultures, hammams are both a symbolic cleansing and bathing ritual. Modesty is preserved with separate male and female treatment rooms.
After a steam sauna, expert therapists deliver a top-to-toe skin scrub to eliminate toxins, followed by a relaxing soak and a therapeutic massage with fragrant lotions for the softest, smoothest skin imaginable.

Consistently voted one of the top 10 thermal and natural spas in the world by Condé Nast Traveller, the Polynesian Spa takes full advantage of Rotorua’s geothermal activity to provide re-energising spa therapies unlike anywhere else in the world. Overlooking Lake Rotorua, a series of private and communal mineral rock pools allow nature to deliver natural hydrotherapy treatments in an outstanding outdoor setting. Relax in the warm alkaline pools or plunge into the acidic Priest Spa pools fed by the Radium hot spring, which has been delivering therapeutic waters to arthritis sufferers for centuries. Take the reflexology walk, book a mud bath or lie back to the sound of gushing waterfalls and let the natural spring waters detoxify and cleanse your whole body. When you’re done, head back to nearby Millennium Hotel Rotorua for a refreshing nap.
Surrounded by mountain and city views, the Grand Millennium Hotel Sulaimani spa offers a first-class spa retreat experience in a stunning location. The luxury health club’s facilities include a sauna, Jacuzzi, and beauty salon for the ultimate pampering. Book a series of relaxing treatments in the day spa from beauty facials to relaxing massage therapies.

There’s also a 53-jet hydrotherapy Surf Pool and a summer Spa Garden.
