Why go on a Spa Holiday?

Spa holidays, spa retreats, spa breaks, spa weekends... Are these types of vacations the sort that you like and enjoy?

For a great many people, the chance to relax and unwind and be pampered is one of the best ways to spend a holiday. Whilst some may like to spend their hard-earned holiday time lying on a beach, or walking around museums and castles, or shopping, for others their vacation time is used to de-stress and revitalise.

What is a Spa?

According to Google the definition of a spa is as follows:


noun /spä/
spas, plural

  1. A mineral spring considered to have health-giving properties
  2. A place or resort with such a spring
  3. A commercial establishment offering health and beauty treatment through such means as steam baths, exercise equipment, and massage
  4. A bath or small pool containing hot aerated water

Spas have been used throughout history as a way of healing the body, inside and out, and today their use has altered slightly to offer a more luxurious, pampering experience than simply a place to be healed.

What is a Spa Holiday?

If we look at the definitions of a spa given to us by Google I think that the best answer to this question would be that a spa holiday is time away from the stresses of life in a place where health-giving mineral waters are abundant. A time where one can enjoy health and beauty treatments. A place where we can take a break from our normal life!

Sounds glorious doesn't it?

Where can I take a spa vacation?

There are fantastic spas all over the world, and the popularity of spa holidays grows yearly.
