Healing Holidays Healing Holidays are the pioneers in spa and wellness travel, the first tour operator to understand the growing importance of spas as a holiday component, and the first to offer a spa only brochure. Over the years, we at Healing Holidays have been constantly on the look out for the best spas and wellness resorts, leading us to only ever recommend spas that we have experienced ourselves. All our staff are passionate and exceptionally knowledgeable about spas, all things health and pampering. We recognise the ever growing importance of wellness travel, as many of us live high-powered, overstressed lives and long for a holiday that will sooth our muscles, make us healthier or relax an overactive mind.

We offer Resort Spas as they create their own special sort of healing through relaxation and pampering. The Resort Spas in our collection are attached to sumptuously luxurious five star hotels, where you could combine a spa holiday with a family escape, beach holiday, golfing and

much more. Some of the resorts even have family spas and treatments especially for kids and teenagers ensuring it is a bonding experience. Or you could always take advantage of the children’s clubs and baby-sitting services which allow you the time to truly escape and unwind. Whichever type of spa meets your demands you can be assured that it has the Healing Holidays seal of approval. For tailor-made travel, it is hard to beat our experts – all our staff have travelled extensively and because we are committed to regular site inspections, we only ever give recommendations and suggestions based upon personal experience. We understand the different demands of a holiday, from couples and solo travellers to groups of friends and families. We listen carefully to you in order to understand what experience you want to gain and to make sure this is met. Our knowledge and experience allows us to negotiate the best rates, making your holiday not just a relaxing one, but one that is also excellent value for money.
