Top 5 Spa Holidays With A Difference

Spaholidayswithadifference

Are you looking for a spa holiday with a difference - somewhere you can try a new hobby or learn a new skill alongside having rejuvenating spa treatments, eating deliciously healthy food and exercising?

We have some beautiful wellness destinations worldwide and many offer the chance to do something different. Why not try a silent retreat? These are becoming increasingly popular as people want to get away from the constant noise of modern life. Many retreats host creative classes where you can unleash your inner artist (remember the joy of drawing all the time when you were younger?) You could even learn new culinary skills (always a fun option and who doesn't want to be a better cook?).

We've put together our Top 5 Spa Holidays with a Difference to inspire you to try something new. Prepare to enjoy every minute and feel truly uplifted by the experience of breaking away from the 'norm' and enriching your life with something different…
