The Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, which features an all-over body exfoliation treatment that uses diamond dust, has been named the world's best hotel spa at the World Spa Awards.

Held in conjunction with the World Travel Awards, which bills itself as the Oscars of the travel world, the world's best spa destinations, resorts and beauty salons were recognized over the weekend at a gala event held at the JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay hotel in Vietnam.

Along with extravagant diamond dust exfoliation treatments, which purport to leave a velvety touch to smoother, softer skin, The Beverly Wilshire also offers facials for their pint-sized princess guests, as part of the spa's kids' treatment menu.

The 'Princess mini-facial,' for instance, includes a facial cleanse, hydrating treatment, and lip gloss application for little girls, while the 'rock star massage' will loosen up kids' "tired muscles."

Kiddie mani-pedis are also available.

Meanwhile, Morocco was named the world's best overall spa destination for its hammam heritage, where steam rooms play an important part of the local culture and lifestyle, offering exfoliating and massage treatments, and a gathering place to catch up with friends and family.

Morocco beat out other contenders in the category, including California, Dubai, the Maldives and Switzerland.
