A spa holiday is not only the perfect excuse to take some down time from today's hectic pace of life, it's an absolutely superb opportunity to grab some quality time with your other half! Combine relaxation, massage, luxury accommodation ... sounds to me like the perfect recipe for an indulgent holiday for two!
Here are just three great reasons why you should head away to a spa for a weekend - or a week!
1) It's a great way to recuperate
Everyday life and routine can wear us all down after a while, especially if a significant amount of time has passed since your last break.
So what better way to give your body and mind a bit of a rest and a boost than with a spa holiday?
If you stay at a luxury resort with a spa on-site, you'll be able to spend your days amongst beautiful surroundings, receiving indulgent treatments such as couples' massages, facials, aromatherapy and other healing procedures that will help you achieve that coveted Zen state of mind.
Not to mention the one-on-one time is sure to work wonders for you and your partner, offering plenty of opportunities to reconnect and re-ignite that spark.
2) There are plenty of beautiful locations to choose from
Whether you're looking for a quick break within Australia or are eager to head further afield, there's a spa destination for everybody.
For those who want to stay close to home, Lizard Island, located on the Great Barrier Reef, is one fantastic option.
The resort on this island is home to Azure Spa, which uses natural Australian products sure to leave you feeling pampered. The treatments take inspiration from Aboriginal medicine and focus on assisting you to find balance.
Other treatments and approaches include aromatherapy, colour and sound therapy and herbalism. Not only will your body and skin be left feeling wonderful, so will your mind.
Those looking to travel further afield for their spa vacation might want to consider somewhere like Bali. This island nation is already a popular holiday spot for Aussies thanks to its great beaches and vibrant nightlife, but it also offers an abundance of opportunities to relax with a quality massage.
Most resorts in Bali have spas attached to them. Take the Tanadewa Luxury Villas & Spa, for instance. The spa nestled within this stunning resort puts an emphasis on the elements - earth, water, fire and air. Each spa treatment on offer aims to connect you and put you in harmony with these elements. There's a lovely natural, wooden interior, plenty of stone, copper and lush green plants to make sure the atmosphere is ideal for total relaxation.
At this resort there are also two spa rooms for couples, with a special focus on the elements earth and air. Enjoy your time together in one of these serene rooms where you can enjoy a true escape.
3) It's affordable
A spa getaway doesn't have to cost you the Earth with a great number of holiday packages and deals that you can work into your budget. While spa getaways within Australia are usually cheaper than heading abroad, you'd be surprised at fantastic deals you can find for heading overseas.
If you're looking to find a spa getaway for your honeymoon, make sure you remain aware of the many specials available for honeymooning couples. You wouldn't want to miss out on a great deal or special experience simply because you didn't know.
Go on - take the plunge and book a spa getaway for you and that special person in your life. You'll come home feeling incredibly refreshed and ready to take on the world.
