There’s nothing like a relaxing visit to the spa, right?
As the ideal break from a busy week at work, everyone here at Founders Guide loves a good trip to the spa after a long week at work. Whether you prefer to sweat it out in the sauna, spend the day swimming in the pool or like to lounge around reading a good book – the atmosphere of a spa is really like no other.
So, if you’re new to spas or you’re starting to find you’re not getting everything you want from your visit, we’re here to help. Here are 6 ways to make the most of a relaxing spa visit:
Do Your Research And Plan Ahead
If you’re heading to a new spa that you have never visited before, doing your research beforehand means you can plan in advance the kinds of things you want to do whilst you’re there. Often spas will have a time limit of how long you can be there, so knowing the areas you want to visit before you arrive can help save valuable relaxing time.
Check If There Are Any Special Offers Beforehand
If you’re looking to book a relaxing spa break but you’re worried it may cost too much, try looking for different deals they may be having. Lots of spas offer package deals that often mean you can save as much as 50% on having multiple treatments and experiences. If you can’t find any of their own sites, try looking on Wowcher or Groupon for additional offers.
Book Yourself A Treatment
Although you can visit a spa without having one of their treatments, it really can change the whole experience. Going for a massage before you head to the pool gives your body a chance to fully relax before you start your spa circuit, allowing you to truly feel what it is like to be relaxed at a spa.
Look After The Spa’s Dressing Gown, Towel And Footwear
Most spas will provide you with your own dressing gown, towel and footwear as part of the standard price. These are for your own comfort so ensure you look after them throughout your stay. Once finished, you can place everything in the robe and Towel Return Station and not have to worry about a thing.
Go With A Buddy
Although it’s not for everyone, heading to the spa with a friend or relative is a great way to help those who may be a little bit anxious about going it alone.
There are so many different things to try at a spa – including the sauna, the pool, the steam room and the plunge pool – so taking the time to try everything will allow you to create the perfect spa circuit for future visits. Often it takes a while to put together the perfect route, but once you find it each and every spa trip you take will be absolute heaven.
