Luxurious treats

Life’s little luxuries

If you need to relax after a flight, a hard day’s shopping or just seeing the sights, why not go to a spa? Take your pick from our indulgent array of tempting treatments from around the globe. Will you get pampered in Jamaica, have a massage in the Maldives or unwind in the mineral-rich waters of Hungary’s thermal spas?

Get in hot water in Hungary

Budapest is prime city-break territory as it's just a 2½ hour flight from the UK. Hungary has more than 1,000 natural hot spings and you'll find 120 in the capital. Once you've seen the sights, you could revive your tired feet in the thermal bath, swim in indoor and outdoor pools or even take a trip out to Miskolctapolca for a soak in the wonderful cave baths there!

Turkish delights

For a deep down cleanse, how about having a Turkish bath, and where better to have one than Istanbul? The traditional hamam starts with steaming in the hot room, followed by a soap, scrub and massage in the warm room, and finishes with time to relax in the cooler room. Some of the hamams are in historic buildings with beautiful interiors, making the experience extra special.

Paradise islands

One lovely way to recover from a long-haul flight is with a pampering massage. If your dream destination is the Maldives, you’re in for a treat. Spas on these islands offer everything from special jet-lag recovery treatments to Ayurvedic massages, and the locations take some beating – how about spas with glass floors so you can gaze at the marine life below, or even have your treatments in an underwater spa?

Pampering Jamaican style

Sampling a country’s cuisine and discovering regional delicacies is one of the tastiest aspects of going on holiday. But local ingredients are also cropping up in spa treatments – in Jamaica you might find a body scrub includes papaya, passion fruit, pineapple and even coffee. It sounds almost good enough to eat but instead leaves skin satin smooth – delicious!

Indulge in Dubai

Dubai offers world-class shopping, plenty of sunshine a jaw-dropping skyline and some phenomenal hotels with in-house spas, so when you’ve finished your retail therapy, you could pamper tired feet with a pedicure, treat yourself to a revitalising massage or relaxing body treatment in the opulent surroundings of some of the world’s glitziest hotels.
