Escape the stresses and strains of everyday life at the Celtic Manor Resort. Its award-winning spa offers several different packages, from pampering treatment at the Ocius Treatment Rooms to a Musclease treatment that will reboot your waning energy levels. If that isn’t your thing, you can cathartically release your stress at the health and fitness suite, swimming lengths and looking after your body.

2. Voco St David's Cardiff

The Voco St David’s Cardiff is a striking landmark situated on the stunning waterfront of Cardiff Bay. One of the finest hotels in Cardiff, its upmarket, glassy exterior allows light to flow in, making your time spent there feel natural. A visit to the award-winning Marine Spa is a must to feel pampered and relaxed. Go for a swim in the indoor swimming pool, have a soak in the hydrotherapy spa pool or get a workout at the fully equipped gym. Then treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment.

3. Bodysgallen Hall and Spa, Llandudno

Previously voted one of the 10 Best Spa Retreats in the UK, the spa at Bodysgallen Hall offers a variety of health and relaxation treatments to hotel residents, day guests and Spa Club members alike. It is well worth escaping to North Wales to experience Bodygallen’s Twilight Experience – time in a sensual relaxation room, a one-hour full-body massage and aromatherapy facial, followed by dinner in the Dining Room.

4. Tre-Ysgawen Hall, Llangefni
