Five things to consider before booking a spa break

If you are looking at booking your next spa break, here are five things to consider according to Garden Retreat Spa.

High expectations – Have a list of what you are looking to achieve from your spa break. It could be getting some much-needed peace or relieving back or shoulder pain. Whatever your goal, always let your therapist know before you book your appointment.

Price points – Look at spending at least $200-$400 on a spa stay which includes treatments. If you can spend more, look at spas that specialize in selected treatments.

Know what to expect – Medical spas will sometimes include procedures that are less than pleasant. In these instances, look at taking someone with you for support.

Time and money matters – Consider the treatments you are getting for the price you are spending. Although you may be spending more time at the spa, always consider if the procedures you are receiving are of value to you.

Book with a spa specialist travel agent – If you want the best deals, it is always best to book with a travel agent who is accustomed to organizing spa specific travel programmes. Ask your travel agent about the list of spa specific packages that are on offer; if they have this information on hand, it is a good indication that they handle spa travel packages.

Steps to remember when traveling and choosing a spa resort

If you are planning on traveling to a spa, you may want to ensure that the spa you choose is in-line with your expectations. Listing out your expectations is a good way to check if the spa you are traveling to offers specific treatments and services. Here are some steps to remember when traveling and choosing a spa resort.

Decide the budget – You want to be able to comfortably afford your stay plus the spa services and treatments at your resort. Start off by allocating a budget that covers your airfare, stay, treatments and meals for your entire trip.

Decide the type – Spa resorts wary from tropical, beach destinations to colder climates. Look at what type of experience you would like to enjoy and then research your destination.

Decide the destination – Spa facilities are offered around the world, so narrow down your destination by considering if you need a visa, the cost and other regulations that may impact your travel or stay.

Traveling considerations – If you are traveling alone to your destination, you may want a resort that allows guests to meet and mingle. On the other hand, if you are travelling with family or friends you may prefer a resort that focuses on the needs of your group.

Think about your requirements – If you have special needs or need medical care at your resort, look into these area before choosing your resort.

What to bring to the spa?

Although you may not have enough money to head on holiday, you may be able to fit in a spa treatment. To make the most of your treatment, here is what you should bring with you on the day.

Workout wear – Most spas also include Yoga, Pilates or Zumba studios. Find out what is available at your spa before packing workout gear and shoes.

Swimsuit – Spas often have whirlpools and mineral pools that are great for relaxing.

Light reading – Avoid packing any reports from work, your laptop or your blackberry and only pack a light novel or a fashion magazine.

Personal grooming – Spas will provide you with disposable combs, razors and body and hair products but you will have to pack a hair band, sunscreen, mascara, mineral powder and lip gloss.

Change of clothes – A fresh change of clothes will make you feel clean and ready for any plans after your spa day. Change into loose fitting clothing like loose yoga pants or a casual sundress, if you prefer to keep the lotions and oils on your skin.

An open attitude – Remember that not all spas or treatments will leave you with an above average spa experience. Therefore, remember to come with an open attitude and enjoy your experience for what it is.
