Verdura Resort – Sicily
A part of a spa treatment that you cannot leave out is the fitness – although relaxation and rejuvenation is important, fitness is also a key aspect of the perfect spa experience, which will not only truly let you relax and unwind, but also get you healthy and strong, ready to take on the day ahead. For such a spa retreat, visit the family-friendly Verdura (there is a kids’ club), where you can enjoy the basics of great fitness, such as personal training and a variety of sports (tennis, water sports, golf) but also, on top of this, a water bath, and a Spa Bar with a terrace which overlooks the magnificent mountains, sports massage and even four thalassotherapy pools. The destination is also very eco-friendly and there is also healthy food to really perfect your healthy lifestyle, allowing you to improve your balance between fitness, nourishing of the body and mind, and sustainability. Further, you are sure to take in a lot of vitamin D and also get those happy hormones going, with the destination being on a sun-kissed Mediterranean coastline which boasts nature – aside from the breathtakingly beautiful white-sand beaches, there are also olive trees and orange groves to be enjoyed.

Nihi Sumba – Indonesia
Detox and help with weight-loss, and an added mixture of adventure and escape from everyday life is something that most people look for in a spa retreat and Nihi Sumba is the absolute place for you and your body to relax and rejuvenate. Located on a cliff which overlooks the wonderful Indian Ocean, you will have already benefited from exercise even before starting the treatment, as you will have to take a 90-minute walk through the Indonesian jungle. After arriving at the spa, you can decide to indulge in either a half-day or full-day spa packages, including treatments for the hair, the body, or facials, all of which are custom suited for each and every guest. The ingredients used – coconut oil, mint leaf, and green tea to name a few – are all natural, as they are picked from the island itself. Aside from relaxing treatments, the more active adventure begins with various activities, such as yoga, surf lessons, fishing alongside many others and, to finish it off, a wonderful sunset massage overlooking the beautiful views of the Indian Ocean coastline. Further, what makes the treatment extra soothing is the surrounding of cooling palm trees and there is even a coconut cove, where you can head down to fully unwind. Finally, this place is perfect for a family retreat also, as there are kids’ activities on offer, and you can pick and choose all aspects of your treatment to satisfy your standards for that perfect spa retreat.

For the combination of fun and relaxation – this is the water wonderland which you will not want to miss out on. Paradise City offers many different activities, such as a theme park, a shopping plaza, a hotel and, of course, the spa, amongst many other attractions. To be precise, Paradise City is the name that encompasses all of these attractions, but to focus and introduce the spa itself, the spa-related activities take place in CIMER, a European-inspired art spa, but which also includes elements of Korean spa culture. Here, there are many different things you can enjoy, such as convenience facilities, an Aqua Spa Zone, a Jjimjil Spa Zone and a sauna, not to mention the dine and drink facilities. To expand on the Aqua Spa Zone, the space is a mix of dynamic LED art and thematic pools – there is so much more to expect here than your average swimming pool; the Jjimjil Spa Zone is where you can enjoy more of the traditional side to Korean bath culture, where they offer traditional style jjimjilbangs to allow you to let off all that steam and, thus, there are many detox treatments and other spa experiences which you can enjoy!

Gainsborough Bath Spa – England
The baths from England came from when the Romans settled down and this spa, with thermal water, has kept true to its roots in design and tradition. It has pillars and a large glass atrium, a large pool, much like the Romans had, but it also has contemporary styled decorations to create that perfect balance needed for a wonderful spa treatment. Further, the spa retreat is perfected by the thermal pools that are all varying temperatures, an important feature of the city’s water heritage, to suit your personal taste. As for the various facilities of the Spa Village, you might want to experience a luxurious treatment in one of the different natural thermal pools, a sauna, and even an ice alcove. The thermal waters are great for relaxation and rejuvenation, as they warm your body and create a soothing sensation – but to add to this, you can also experience the personal aromatherapies that accompany the waters. Further, there are other therapies offered that might be of interest, such as Asian therapies and yoga and even an integrated aquatic body therapy, allowing you to improve balance and flexibility. Finally, to top it all off, why not enjoy this lovely retreat in the hearty English town with a lovely spa lunch or quintessential afternoon tea?
