Trumping even our love for Netflix binges and Seamless takeout, nothing quite hits the spot like a glass of red wine. If we could bathe in the stuff like Cleopatra, we would...and now we can. The Yunesson Spa Resort of Hakone, Japan offers the stuff of dreams-and by that we obviously mean a giant outdoor pool filled with Merlot.

Rather than ask, um, why?, the real question is: How do they get that much wine in a pool? By pouring it from a 12-foot-tall bottle, of course...

While there's definitely the novelty of diving head first into gallons of Merlot, red wine also has a slew of anti-aging skin benefits-especially because it contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that stimulates cell proteins known as sirtuins, which promotes longer cell life in the body.

But if wine isn't you cup of tea, the Japanese spa theme park has a pool filled with that too, along with hot tubs of sake, ramen noodles, and coffee for your swimming pleasure.
