Whether it’s a romantic getaway or a relaxing day shared with a loved one, spas offer the perfect setting for pampering and togetherness. In this guide, we take a look at your options for spa days and breaks for couples, including the range of treatments available. We also include some of our favourite spa packages, which are ideal for a special occasion or anytime you simply want to get away from it all.
We offer a range of spa packages for couples which include half or full spa days, as well as overnight spa breaks. Inclusions will vary but a spa package usually features one or more treatments, plus full use of the leisure facilities. Some packages will also include extras, such as a glass of bubbly, lunch or dinner, afternoon tea, or treatments which take place in a dual treatment room.
“My husband and I have just spent one of the most relaxing and enjoyable weekends we have ever had together - and we have been married for 22 years!” Mrs Gadsdon from Birmingham (Guest at Best Western Premier Yew Lodge Hotel, Derby)
“After a stressful few months for my other half, I decided to take him away for a spa break to rejuvenate. We were both spa virgins and - oh my gosh - I can't believe it took us so long to go!” Jemma Kennedy from London
One of the best things about a couple’s spa day is the opportunity to indulge in some joint relaxation. You can also enjoy the leisure facilities, which may include a thermal suite or swimming pool.
There are certain treatments that lend themselves to a couple’s spa experience, including the non-therapist Rhassoul (or Rasul) mud experience. Slather yourself with nourishing purified mud then relax in a steam room before washing it away, leaving your skin wonderfully soft. You can find out more about this indulgent treatment in our dedicated guide – What is Rhassoul clay?
Some spas even offer dual treatment rooms in which you can enjoy the experience side-by-side. One of the more popular dual treatments is a couple’s massage, which takes place in a treatment room with twin massage tables. For more, take a look at our dedicated guide, which highlights what to expect during a couple's massage.
- Don’t miss out! Spa breaks for couples are understandably popular at certain times of the year (Valentine’s Day, etc.), so book well ahead if you have a specific date in mind.
- Check the inclusions in your chosen package: Not all spas will offer dual treatment rooms, for example, so if that’s something you’d like to try, it is important to ensure the spa can accommodate your requirements.

- Spa days for couples aren’t just for lovers: While some of our packages are focussed on romance, many of our spa days and spa breaks for couples can be enjoyed with a friend or family member.
