How to plan the perfect birthday weekend spa break
Spa hotels are great for birthday weekends to remember, whether you’re seeking an intimate celebration for two or a chilled-out party with family and friends. In this guide, we highlight some birthday weekend away ideas and offer a few tips on planning the perfect spa celebration.
Why should you book a spa weekend for a birthday celebration?
If you’re searching for birthday weekend away ideas, a spa break offers something a little different, giving you the chance to tailor the perfect celebration. For example, maybe your ideal birthday weekend involves a cosy bed and breakfast package? Or maybe a loved one has a landmark birthday coming up and you’d like to treat them to a one or two-night escape at a luxury spa hotel? If you want to plan a larger spa birthday party, a group package might be the right choice.
Overnight spa packages include accommodation, dining options and limited or full access to the leisure facilities. Many breaks also offer one or more spa treatments, while celebration packages may include extras, such as a glass of fizz.
When it comes to locations, you might choose a vibrant city escape to London, Edinburgh or Manchester to enjoy excitement and spa relaxation, or retreat to the country for a restful and romantic getaway in the Lake District or New Forest.
Types of birthday weekend away packages
If you need a few ideas on booking the perfect birthday weekend away in the UK, here are some of our more popular package types.
Bed and breakfast spa packages
Bed and breakfast spa breaks offer accommodation and a full English breakfast. This type of package may feature fewer spa inclusions, often just offering access to the venue’s leisure facilities. They make great birthday weekend away packages for guests seeking rest, relaxation and sightseeing.
Couples weekend spa breaks
Some packages are tailor made for two, which make them great for a romantic celebratory spa weekend away. Many of our couples’ spa packages feature extras, such as a bottle of bubbly in your room or dual treatments, alongside the standard inclusions. There are also spa breaks that are suitable for non-romantic couples.
One-night birthday weekend spa breaks
Overnight spa breaks are a great choice if you want to spend your birthday weekend away in a relaxed environment with your partner, best friend or a family member. Some of our one-night spa packages are designed for special occasions, with added extras that turn your break into a true celebration.
Two-night birthday weekend spa breaks
For a real “get away from it all” birthday treat, a two-night spa package provides the perfect blend of pampering and relaxation. It also offers the chance to really enjoy your surroundings, whether you choose the city, countryside or coast.
Group weekend spa breaks
If you’d like to share your birthday weekend with friends and family, you might like to consider a group spa break. These breaks come with some great inclusions to really get the birthday celebrations started. Spas usually impose a minimum group size on these packages, so make sure you check out the details before you book.

Check the inclusions: Each of our spa break packages features set inclusions, from treatments to meals. Check before you book to make sure your chosen package includes everything you want.
