How to plan the perfect birthday weekend spa break
Why limit your birthday fun to just 24 hours when you can celebrate over an entire weekend? Spa hotels are the perfect choice 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 of our favourite spa break packages at a variety of venues across the UK for the very best birthday weekends.
Options for your perfect birthday weekend spa break
When it comes to planning your birthday weekend, you have lots of choice. Maybe your ideal birthday weekend involves a cosy bed and breakfast package at a grand country spa hotel? Or maybe a loved one has a landmark birthday coming up and you’d like to whisk them away on a luxurious one or two-night escape? For something extra special, you could opt for one of our great 5 star spa hotels that are perfect for a romantic birthday weekend getaway. Or, for a larger celebration, choose a group spa package.
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.
