Spa Vacations And All Inclusive Packages
Some people may consider the spa vacation as being a relatively new invention for a holiday – but nothing could be further from the truth.
In ancient Greece Hippocrates, the father of medicine, extolled the virtues of relaxing in hot springs and invigorating cold plunges.
The Romans followed his lead and developed bathhouses where visitors enjoyed the delights of shared bathing in hot water.
Whilst for centuries, people have traveled many miles to areas where natural springs abound in order to spend a few days 'taking the waters'.
Relax And De-Stress
So why should you consider a spa destination for your next vacation? The answers to that are many-fold. More often than not holidays are taken in order to relax, de-stress and generally enjoy a little 'me time'.
What better way to achieve all those things than a visit to a spa! There are a plethora of spa hotels and resorts to chose from.
All of which offer not only luxurious spa treatments and therapies, but include accommodation, some wonderful dining experiences, peaceful surroundings and, as often as not, other attractions and interests.
Spa and golf destinations are particularly popular. Gone are the days of golf widows. Instead of spending hours sitting alone with a paperback for company waiting for hubby to reach the 19th hole, the lady of the house can enjoy a day of pampering and well-being whilst hubby has a round or two.
Perfect For Singles
A spa vacation is also an excellent holiday choice for singles. Giving focus to a trip away when traveling alone can help to fill days that might otherwise be a lonely experience.
Combined with the opportunity to meet other like minded guests and also enjoying some very individual rejuvenation, a luxury destination spa is certainly a good choice if you're considering a holiday by yourself.
Perfect For The Girls
Perhaps you're looking for an alternative vacation to enjoy with a group of friends.
What better way to spend a girlie weekend than by sharing the pleasure of being pampered and preened with your best friends?
Perfect For The Guys
Of course, this isn't purely the domain of female groups; many spas have bespoke treatments designed specifically with men in mind.
A spa vacation may not be the first destination one would think of if organizing a boys break, but it is certainly an option worth considering.
