With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how to treat your dad. Spas offer the perfect environment in which to get away from daily pressures and just destress for a while. So maybe this year, instead of socks and ties, he would appreciate some dedicated relaxation time!
Some men are resistant to the idea of going to a spa, but there’s really nothing to fear! Spas welcome men and most offer treatments that are specific to men’s needs, including products designed for male skin, which differs from women’s skin.
A men’s massage or facial can offer real benefits, such as soothing dry skin or loosening up tight muscles. Read more in our blog post on male skincare treatments. This post also offers advice on enjoying a male spa day.
The leisure facilities available at spas also provide a great way to relax. Facilities vary between spas, but often include a swimming pool, steam room or sauna, and hydrotherapy pool. There may even be a gym or sports facilities, such as golf.
Lots of spas offer dedicated men’s spa packages. These will include tailored treatments and access to the relaxing leisure facilities. Many packages come with some extras, such as lunch, a welcome drink or complimentary use of a robe and slippers (inclusions vary). A one- or two-night spa break will include usually accommodation, breakfast and dinner (again, inclusions vary). Guests can also enjoy the amenities available at the hotel.
To give you an idea of what’s available, we’ve picked out a few packages that your dad (or other man in your life!) may enjoy.
