A far more recent development, however, has been the addition of overwater spas at some of the world’s most luxurious island resorts.

You don’t even have to book a ticket all the way to the Maldives to indulge at one of these (though several are located in the Indian Ocean archipelago) since there are several in the Caribbean, and even one in Europe.
