Description:
These are locations where the public is offered the chance to soak in special "curative" waters, have a massage or relax in a steamy environment. This includes public Saunas and Kneipp Walk Pools.
Expanded Description:
The term Spa is derived from the name of the town of Spa, Belgium, where, since medieval times, illnesses caused by iron deficiency were treated by drinking iron bearing spring water. In 16th century England the old Roman ideas of medicinal bathing were revived at towns like Bath.

The category is intended to cover locations not already belonging in the "Hot Springs" category. For example, this would include mineral baths in which the water is known for its curative properties but requires human intervention to be heated to a pleasant temperature. Also, some mineral baths may be located at sources of water which are cool or cold, or the water may be transported from another location, or minerals may be added to otherwise unremarkable water. Establishments which are primarily swimming pools or water fun parks are excluded. If you would like to include a hot spring or thermal bath in this category, you may, but please log it first in the Hot Springs category.

Turkish Hammams (Baths) are also included in this category. We'll define this loosely as a really special destination steam bath experience (No unremarkable health club/hotel saunas or steam baths please).

Pubic Saunas are also included in this category..

Lastly what are called "Day Spas" in the U.S. will also be included. These offer massages, facials, nutritional counseling, etc. and focus on "well-being" but are not necessarily oriented around water. Establishments must be truly dedicated to such well-being treatments. Establishments offering primarily "beauty" services such as haircutting or pedicure services are excluded.

As of January 2, 2018, Kneipp Walk Pools are also included in this category. This is a small pool with very cold water and some kind of railing to help you keep your balance. You walk barefoot inside the pool in the cold water, with one foot in and one foot above the water (like a stork). This type of pool is used to promote good blood circulation.

Establishments of ill repute are excluded.

Instructions for Posting a Spas, Hammams, Mineral Baths and Saunas Waymark:
Please log only locations which are open to the general public and for which the primary reason for going there is to enjoy the mineral bath, hammam, day spa, sauna, or Kneipp Pools. Facilities which are unremarkable hotel facilites, for example, or offer haircutting or pedicure services are excluded. Please note that Kneipp pools are rare outside of Europe, so a hotel with a Kneipp pool will be accepted.

Include two photos. One which is a photo of the facility sign and a second photo which gives a good impression of the exterior. For Kneipp pools you must provide proof that a Kneipp pool exists in the facility (photo or web link).
