Day Spas are called day spas because, unlike destination spas or resort spas, you don’t spend the night there. Day spas come in a range of shapes and personalities, from small village spas to huge extravaganzas with hydrotherapy tubs, Vichy showers and an elaborate spa menu. Many day spas combine a hair salon and spa. This can be nice because you can get spa services that leave you relaxed, then get your hair washed and dried.
Sometimes a Resort Spa welcomes locals on a Day Spa basis. The prices for treatments are more expensive, but you can use all the lavish amenities like steam room, sauna, or just laze by the pool for the day before or after your treatment. Ideally a Day Spa should offer a quiet, peaceful atmosphere, robes and slippers, a full menu of massage, facials, and body treatments, professional massage therapists and estheticians, private treatment rooms with fresh linens, frontline spa products, a relaxation room with tea. Secure lockers, steam room and sauna are added pluses.
An entire spa weekend is the latest trend that has caught the fancy of people. Most professionals’ don’t get enough time to plan a weekend vacation. The usually hectic schedule keeps people away from travelling. The answer is a Weekend Spa. A weekend at the spas can be a perfect stress buster. An average working couple cannot go on a holiday every weekend. A stay at a Weekend Spa Resort makes them feel like they’e on a short vacation. Also certain slow Spa Treatments like the Sulis range is better suited for a Weekend Spa approach rather than a Day Spa stay.
