Welcome to American Spa's third year of the 12 Days of PCA announcements! In 2017, we decided to announce the winners of our annual Professional's Choice Awards a little differently. Instead of giving you all 50 winners (plus the finalists) at once, we broke them up into fun groups to give you a few of the winners each day through out the month of November. This year, we'll be following suit as we unveil the winners of our 15th annual Professional's Choice Awards, now through November 24.

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:
