Not every bachelorette party has to be centered around crowded nightclubs and rowdy city streets. In fact, more and more bridal parties are catching onto the trend of hosting a spa bachelorette party for their weekend escape. This gives your group the best of both worlds—room for a little R+R and the opportunity to party to your hearts delight once you’ve found your zen. No matter your destination of choice, there’s a little something for everyone.
Here’s our selection of our favorite resorts across the country for your spa bachelorette party.
