If heading outside of the UK isn’t an option, then you can still have just as much fun and enjoy just as much pampering with a UK-based resort. The spa at Bedford Lodge is a real treat and offers a 5 Bubble Rated experience for guests.

Situated in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, it’s the perfect place to let your stresses float away. Head up to the spa’s rooftop hot tub with a glass of champagne, sit back and just relax!

Borgo Santo Pietro, Tuscany

How about a touch of Italian chic? This boutique Tuscan hotel and spa is a real rustic delight, housed in a 13th-century period property with original features. The grounds themselves are just as spectacular – the free-form freshwater infinity pool is particularly impressive!

Built in natural stone, the spa building is alive with wooden beams, beautiful chandeliers and a light floral fragrance that encompasses the retreat. This hotel and spa is also pet friendly, so you can check any small four legged pooches in with you too!

Epic Sana, Algarve

Albufeira, Portugal is a popular destination for many British tourists, but this resort truly stands out from the rest. The hotel itself boasts 162 rooms, 24 garden suites and 43 resort suites all featuring a contemporary design plus all the needed amenities.

The Sayanna Wellness centre is the gem of this retreat, offering the perfect place to unwind. Whilst you’ll find your usual menu of treatments such as massage and facials there is also an extensive focus on fitness here.

Participate in high-energy aerobics classes, boot camps or enjoy a session of yoga. After all of your hard work it’s time to head to the Turkish bath before a dip in the pool. Just heavenly!
