While it may be close to home, a spa holiday in Europe can almost feel as though you are visiting another world entirely. With a spa history that dates back thousands of years to the Roman times, when the health benefits of the many natural hot springs and mineral waters in the region were first discovered, you can be certain that there’s a reason why spas in Europe have maintained their popularity over such a long period of time. While nowadays things have moved on rather dramatically from the Roman era, indeed the combination of medicine and beauty expertise in Europe have now refined spa health into something of a science, you will still find that the powers of the thermal waters are one of the major attractions of many of these spas.
Beyond the unique thermal waters, it is the variation within Europe that makes it such a great place to visit for a spa break. Whether you want to be situated in the snow-capped Alps of Switzerland or along the stunning coastline of Portugal, there are spas that will be able to offer you what you desire; whether you seek an ultra-modern medical spa or an Ayurvedic resort comparable to those in India, there is something that will be right for you. Despite so much variation and choice, something that is universal across these spas however is the consistently high standards of luxury accommodation, world-class continental cuisine, and of course the quality of the treatments and care you will receive.
So no matter if you seek a weekend spent being pampered at a romantic hotel, or a more intensive wellness retreat at one of the world’s top destination spas, Europe will be able to meet and exceed your expectations with ease.
