The many visitors from all over the world who come to Israel's vacation capital to relax at the hotels and Red Sea beaches often incorporate spa treatments into their holiday. With choices of massages, saunas, steam baths, body wraps, facials, and so much more, a stay in Eilat can be an enriching experience for both body and soul.

Many hotels have their own spa centers on the premises offering wellness treatments to guests and the public at large. In Eilat, spa packages that include a menu of treatments and use of the hotel's facilities – pool, sauna, restaurants, etc. – are plentiful. There are also private therapists offering massages and other treatments at home or on hotel premises.

In the tourist center of town, there are several massage centers offering various types of massage, from foot massages to full-body Swedish massages. Some of the larger centers also provide holistic medical treatments and therapy by licensed therapists to revitalize the body, mind, and soul.

The Red Sea, too, offers healing and relaxation for the body and mind, and many visitors spend long hours resting on the beach to destress and take a break from the everyday rush of life. Several locations along the shoreline offer the opportunity for maximal rest and relaxation, such as the Relaxation Pools (Stalbet Al Hamayim in Hebrew) at Dolphin Reef, which consist of three warm pools – saltwater, freshwater and seawater – set amid lush, green gardens. It's the perfect place to recharge your batteries and indulge in a mind-body treatment offered onsite.

If you're looking to make a day of it, plan a outing to one of the world's best natural spas – the Dead Sea. The site is famous thanks to the therapeutic minerals found there naturally and for the mud baths that are said to heal a range of ailments. The mud also serves as the basis for some of the most sought-after beauty and cosmetics products in the world.
