    7. Seoul
    Electronic music is practically a religion in Seoul, leading to all-night parties and thumping dance clubs throughout the South Korean capital. Multi-level nightclubs packed to the brim are the norm, and it’s common for clubs, bars, and even some restaurants to remain open until sunrise. Just 10 minutes from the beat of downtown is the Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul, a tranquil destination perched amid the bustling city. The hotel’s spa has an extensive range of Asian-inspired treatments that use Korean green tea. The sauna area features three temperature-controlled pools, an herbal sauna room, an aroma steam room, and an ice fountain.

    8. Goa
    Providing the best of both worlds, Goa is as famous for its moonlit dance parties as it is for its Ayurvedic and yoga retreats. If you plan on dancing all night, make sure to book a stay at the Taj Exotica Goa, where guests can partake in yoga and meditation classes, work out in the fitness center, and play badminton, tennis, golf, and cricket. It’s the only hotel in Goa to have two spas: Jiva and Jiva Ayurveda. Ayurvedic treatments include abhyanga, an experience where medicated herbal oils are generously applied in gentle strokes; kati basti, a therapeutic treatment that uses warm oil in black gram dough that’s placed on pain spots; and udvartana, a body toning treatment that involves applying a mixture of herbal powder and oil on the body. The hotel’s restaurant also has a wellness cuisine menu that follows Ayurvedic practices.
