If you enjoy going on spa breaks abroad but don’t want to travel too far from home, consider taking a trip to one Europe’s exquisite luxury spas. While it may be close to home, a spa break 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 things have now moved on rather dramatically from the Roman era, 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 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. This is exemplified by the success of European spas at the 2017 World Luxury Spa Awards.
