Spa retreats are designed to alleviate stress, giving your body and mind that positive boost it so desperately craves. Sign up for a whole list of rejuvenating treatments at your desired resort and relish anything from detoxifying massages to energising facials. Then, tidy up your nails by arranging a Shellac manicure or pedicure. You will feel like royalty while you wait for your pamper session, too, thanks to the fabulous freebies that are often available for guests. This includes tea, coffee and hot chocolate machines for you to grab a drink from. After your break draws to a close, you’ll return home feeling totally refreshed and revitalized. How dreamy is that?
You may ask, “what’s so brilliant about this sort of holiday?” Well, for a start, wherever you choose to stay, there’s bound to be some form of stunning greenery surrounding you in this captivating country. So, you can venture on a beautiful stroll in the morning to clear your head, before reclining on the massage bed back at your hotel, waving goodbye to your aches and pains. Venturing on a luxury escape also means you’ll most likely benefit from a complimentary spa bag, featuring a fluffy towelling robe and soft, cosy slippers for you to change into.
Nothing can quite compete with a weekend spent at a spa. From start to finish, you’ll enjoy separating yourself from the outside world while unwinding in premium accommodation, complete with elegant decor. The best place for you to stay depends on your personal preferences. You might scope out spots offering indulgent afternoon tea, or perhaps a remote, high-end log cabin. What’s better is that once you’ve had a dip in the Jacuzzi and a steam in the sauna, you can head back to your opulent suite and laze on a plush, spacious bed.
Whatever you have in mind for your soothing escape, you won’t be short of lavish places to choose from. After all, the UK is brimming with hotels that offer state-of-the-art spas, which are located in a diverse range of destinations. Why not stopover in an exquisite manor house in the likes of the Yorkshire Dales, Devon, Berkshire or Hampshire, where you can indulge in a series of sumptuous spa treatments? Or, for an even more authentic experience, visit the wonderful city of Bath. Here, you can sink into a rooftop pool and bathe in the warm, natural hot springs, before exploring the luscious 18th-century Prior Park Landscape Garden.
