Feel Ultra Cozy at These Five Spas
Coziness implies closeness—snuggling with a loved one, wrapping ourselves in a thick blanket, getting close to a fireplace. When we are warm and comfortable, we are cozy. While we tend to rely on external factors for our comforts, we cannot ignore that the ultimate closeness should be with ourselves. For this reason, we’ve selected five spas that offer essential elements of coziness aimed to provide the kind of comfort that helps inch us closer to our truest selves.
