7 reasons why you should book a winter sun spa break

1.     Sun

While the sunshine is great for our tans, it also has health benefits.

The sun provides us with vitamin D, and this sunshine vitamin helps us to absorb calcium, keeping our bones healthy.  So a winter sun spa break is the perfect excuse to top up your tan and your vitamin D… it is for our health after all!

We offer spa breaks to a huge variety of sunny destinations, from European breaks in Greece and Spain, to paradise getaways in the Seychelles and Maldives.

2.     Constant pampering

A winter sun spa break will provide you with some indulgent pampering. Massages, facials and body wraps galore!

Studies around massages have shown they’re proven to reduce stress and muscle tension, and also improve sleep and anxiety. Say no more, we have just the thing! St James’s Club Morgan Bay Hotel Seven Nights Morgan Bay Spa Experience includes five 45 minute treatments throughout your stay, leaving you more relaxed than you’ve ever felt before!

3.     Food

Winter sun spa breaks are the perfect place to unleash your inner foodie. With an array of foods to choose from, enjoy everything from afternoon tea by the pool to a three course meal while watching the sunset.

If it’s variety you’re after, book a break at Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa, with five dining options to choose from including Spain’s first Nobu, you will be spoilt for choice! For delicious food without the guilt try Rachel’s serving up healthy juices and organic food. Yummy food without the calories, where do we sign up?

4)    The Health Benefits

While it is well known that enjoying a relaxing spa break in the sun will reduce your stress and improve your mental health, the benefits are not all psychological. It’s been discovered that going on holiday can boost your health for a month after returning. What better time to experience an immune boost than the winter months when we need all the help we can get to fight off that deadly lurgy!

Want to reduce your stress even further? Visit Vincci Selección La Plantación del Sur for a specialised Seven Night Anti-stress spa break, and achieve maximum relaxation, peace and harmony.

5.     Catch up on some sleep

A spa holiday will leave you relaxed and tired after a full day of pampering, swimming and eating, preparing you for a perfect night’s sleep.

While catching some Z’s may reduce those under-eye bags, there are also a long list of health benefits such as boosting your immune system and reducing your calorie intake. It also improves your mood, concentration and productivity, leaving you in the perfect mindsight to return to work at the end of the break!

Why not book a retreat in a remote area of Romania with Akasha Wellness Retreat and switch off from the world. After a day of yoga, walking and hiking in the mountains, you’ll barely be able to keep your eyes open!

6.     Give yourself a detox

Going on a spa break can give your body a refreshing detox. Rid your body of toxins and stress through specialised treatments or simply from a relaxing trip to the sauna!

Check out the five night detox holiday by Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa**,** for a relaxing spa break in the sun with benefits for your body too… We’re sold!

7.     Because you deserve it!

You deserve a break, so reward yourself with a little luxury. Book a spa break like no other and jet off to Ozen in the Maldives, where you’ll stay in a water villa overlooking a turquoise lagoon and dine in the underwater restaurant!

Go on…
