Nothing compares to the sheer indulgence of a health resort, where your body, mind and soul are treated to refreshing and ultimately relaxing treatments. Some resorts are more medically-oriented in their approach, which results in more stringent eating programmes and fitness regimes. Others are more about beauty and relaxation, pampering guests during their stay. Just be sure that you are completely aware of which option you require and that the resort you choose caters to your needs.

The Dandy-Line Spa focuses on detoxifying treatments and ridding their guests of stress and anxiety.
