If you want to rediscover a sense of serenity and inner relaxation, Wales’ spa breaks offer up some of the most relaxing experiences.

Celtic Manor Resort

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 musclease treatment that will reboot your waning energy levels.

St David’s Hotel and Spa

The St. David’s Hotel & Spa 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, a soak in the hydrotherapy spa pool, or a workout at the fully equipped gym. Then treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment.

St Brides Spa Hotel

Planted in a picture book location, St Brides Hotel finds itself in truly one of the most beautiful locations in Wales. A sanctuary of calm and tranquillity, visitors can benefit from their wonderful spa whilst fully embracing Pembrokeshire, with full height windows that slide open to reveal the fresh sea air and gentle sound of the tide. The spa is very close: just a five-minute walk from the beach should you fancy a walk by the surf.

Bodysgallen Hall and Spa

Previously voted one of the 10 Best UK 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 of aromatherapy facial, followed by dinner in the Dining Room. Check online for deals and break offers.
