Regions of Europe
If you enjoy going on wellness breaks, abroad but don’t want to travel too far from home, Europe is the place to go. While it may be close to home for spa retreats, 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, things have now moved on rather dramatically. The combination of medicine and beauty expertise in Europe have now redefined wellness holidays into something of a science. Beyond the unique thermal waters, it is the variation within Europe that makes it such a great place to visit for a wellness holiday. 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.
