Best luxuries and fabulous Spas For Couples wellness

See also

There was a time when a couple’s holiday to a spa hotel consisted of the lady relaxing in the spa, enjoying exotic massage treatments, lounging by the pool or meting away stress in the sauna while the man hit the golf course or maybe ventured into the gym to try some weights. But those days are long gone.

While it’s true that men will often want to exert themselves a little more when on a wellness holiday, indulging in classes like kickboxing or personal training sessions, there is a growing demand from men to also experience some of the pampering that the ladies have enjoyed for so long. And it rubs both ways, with women wanting more from their wellness travel than just a top quality spa.

If you want to enjoy a wellness holiday for two then why not book some time at one of these fabulous spa resorts at home and abroad.

1. Monastero Santa Rosa, Italy

Wellness holidays really don’t come more luxurious than this. Set atop a rugged cliff overlooking the sparkling blue of the Amalfi Coast, this former convent is steeped in calm and tranquillity. This is the perfect couple’s getaway. You can both relax on the terrace gardens and enjoy the stunning infinity pool together while the incredibly attentive staff will meet your every need. Then head into the spa for the ultimate in relaxation. Aside from an incredible range of treatments, a couple can book time in the Spa Suite, a mini spa-within-the-spa, with its own private steam room, garden terrace and treatment lounges.

2. Alexander House Utopia Spa

If you want an incredible wellness holiday together but don’t fancy the stress of airports and long distance travel, few UK spa destinations can match the Utopia Spa at Alexander House. With its Grecian themed interiors, Utopia Spa has its roots firmly in traditional spas, but offers a vast range of modern treatments. Chill out in the Zen garden with hot tub, before enjoying treatments like a champagne manicure or mud massage. The spa has couples treatment rooms so you can relax together, and if you want something more strenuous the onsite gym offers classes in boxfit, fitness yoga and high intensity interval training to get you into shape.

3. Mayan Luxury Spa At The El Palace Hotel, Spain

The El Palace has been one of Spain’s most iconic hotel resorts for over 90 years. A truly opulent hotel experience, with a restaurant serving some of the finest food in Europe, is capped off with the wonderful Mayan Luxury Spa. Couples should enjoy the Temazcal Mayan Rebirth Ritual in the spa’s Mayan-infleunced Temazcal sauna. A healing ritual that brings together the elements of Earth, Fire, Wind and Water to purify mind, body and soul before a revitalising Sensations shower to awaken the body and a balancing herbal tea together in the relaxation room.
