Romantic SPA stay
Let’s be real for a second here. Most of us work and face daily life struggles throughout the majority of the year – and we do deserve to unwind once in a while.
How about enjoying a beautiful SPA weekend with your loved ones and pampering yourself with gorgeous views, exciting foreign land, and the absolute best wellness service? Here are a few of our recommendations for the most exciting, top-level SPA stays in Europe:
1. Lake Garda, Italy
This adult-only beautiful establishment is one of the most unique stays by the gorgeous Garda lake you can find. This incredibly luxurious design hotel promises the absolute best service you can get and anything you need to make your stay more special and romantic.
2. Kos Island, Greece
Another adult-only design hotel (sensing a theme? Kids are great, but enjoying a couple of days only with your partner, without your or other people’s children running around is what we all need) is beautifully situated on Kos island – away from noisy town but still within walking distance.
The service is absolutely impeccable, as well as the wellness services, giant pool area, and the highlight of this place, the food – possibly the very best breakfast buffet I have ever tried.
3. Uløya Island, Norway
Last but not least, a truly romantic stay on Uløya island in Norway. Panoramic views of the sea and mountains are truly breathtaking, not to mention the Northern Lights you can watch from your room at night.
The wellness facilities include everything you can think of starting with fitness classes, personal trainers through professional body massages all the way to beauty treatments, and jacuzzi access. To truly get a sense of real love and serenity, enjoy alone time in your own private sauna attached to your unit.
Sleeping under the stars
A beautiful combination of natural serenity, beautiful views, and high-speed internet – for all glamping enthusiasts, this is the place to be.
You can relax at the swimming pool or a hot tub on the premise or take the more active approach and explore the area on foot, on a bicycle, or on a less mainstream form of transport – a donkey.
If that’s not enough… how about watching the stars from your own bed with your significant other?
