Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for holidays with jam-packed itineraries. But sometimes after a long hard week, lying poolside is exactly what the doctor ordered. All the packing, organising and sightseeing required on vacations definitely takes its toll, and often you’re never more in need of some R and R than during or post-holiday. Our go-to spa treatments rejuvenate in the most beautiful of places.
1. Green Spa, New York
Champagne, softly-lit candles and hot stones can only mean one thing: a stone massage for two at New York’s first Green Spa. On arrival, you and your guest will be given robes and slippers as you relax in the tea lounge in preparation for your session. A hot stone massage in a private suite works out all those kinks and stresses, while essential oils soothe your skin from head to toe. The finishing touch? All women will receive a flower at the end of the session, marking their time at New York’s famous Green Spa.
2. Ein Gedi Spa, Jerusalem
If you’re looking for a spa with a little more character, then this excursion to Massada, the Dead Sea and Ein Gedi Spa is ideal. First up is a tour of the Massada fortress and palace of Kind Herod, led by an expert bilingual guide. Then, it’s spa time! Rich in essential minerals, bathe in the Ein Gedi springs, enjoy a dip in a mud bath and get a massage. Your spa day will end with a dip in the famous Dead Sea.
