Come to think about it, spas have been popular ever since Roman times.. so, it would be rude not to carry on the tradition! Whether you are looking to go swimming followed by relaxing on a lounger with a cocktail in hand whilst reading your favourite book, detox in the steam room and hot tub or to try out some treatments, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Here’s a few of our favourite spa locations to try out…
