We all need to take a break from time to time as this is how you recharge your batteries and unwind. There are so many ways to do this, and one popular option is an indulgent spa weekend. Whether you go with your partner, a few friends or even by yourself, a spa weekend is a superb way to pamper yourself and relax. Often, these spa retreats are in idyllic places too which helps you to completely unplug and chill out.
Here's how to make the most out of your indulgent spa weekend!
There are many terrific spa retreats to choose from in the UK. Be sure to do your research to make sure that the place you select has fantastic facilities and plenty to keep you entertained for a few days. The best way to compare and find places is to visit short holiday organisers like Great Little Breaks.
No spa retreat is quite the same and every retreat will have different facilities and activities for you to try. Think about whether you want to go out on walks, lounge around by the pool or simply indulge in treatments for the weekend.
Many places will throw in extras to make your stay that little bit more special. This could include a free 3-course meal, a bottle of champagne or a couples massage. Keep your eyes peeled for these extras at the time of booking to make the most out of your trip
In terms of packing, be sure to pack all of your most comfortable clothes so that you can fully relax and unwind at all times. The hotel is likely to provide you with all the towels and bathrobes that you need, but take your comfy hoodies, sweatpants and anything else that you wear on lazy days at home. Although you should pack for comfort, you may also want some smart clothes for dinner and if you decide to venture out for the day.
To fully relax, unplug yourself from the world for a few days by leaving your smartphone off. You will, of course, want to stay in touch, but keep usage to a minimum and avoid any work related messages (I am the worst for this) at all costs. This is a period for escaping your daily life and indulging.
