12 Days of PCA Day One: Spa Standouts

Here are the day one winners of American Spa's Professional's Choice Awards // Graphic by Kara Magliaro

Welcome to 12 Days of PCA! We've decided to announce the winners of our annual Professional's Choice Awards a little differently this year. Instead of giving you all 49 winners (plus the finalists) at once, we've broken them up into fun groups to give you a few of the winners each day, now until Thanksgiving day. To kick things off, we've got the Spa Standouts group, which includes the winners of your favorite new international spa, favorite new U.S. spa, favorite destination spa, favorite resort spa, and favorite multiple location spa. Find out who were our winners and finalists below:
