Posted by Natasha Jervis on 1 June 2012

Ready to live it up in ultimate luxury at one of the best spa-cation resorts in the Caribbean, Mexico or Europe? If you are constantly dreaming of mud treatments, seaweed body wraps and Swedish massages, you have come to the right place! Is this your first time you are going on a spa-cation?

It's probably the first time you're treating yourself to the gift of travel. It is wonderful if you know tips for your first spa visit abroad so you can make it truly a memorable one. The last thing you want to do is go away and be all stressed out because it wasn't organized properly. Let our expert dream travel team at Canada Travels take away your travel woes and nerves. But first, read on to understand some important tips for your first spa vacation. It's time to relax!

  • Spend at least 3 to 4 nights to truly allow yourself to relax and unwind. A two day spa escape just won't give you enough time to rejuvenate.
  • Research your spa resort property and make sure they have all of the spa-cation treatments and facilities you will need. Some resorts may say they have exceptional spa facilities and treatments, and then they have a menu of one or two treatments. Be aware and do your research!
  • Ask your family and friends about places they have traveled to and resorts they enjoyed. Word of mouth is everything when it comes to travel and getting a bang for your buck these days!
  • Take comfortable clothes, work out clothes and suitable shoes if you might engage in some exercise before treatments.
  • Compare prices of treatments from resort to resort. Sometimes paying a little extra can mean the difference between a smooth sailing massage and being wacked with branches!
  • Understand the different types of spas. There are destination spas that immerse you into spa life and you follow their set program, or there are resort spas that allow you to choose when, what and how much when it comes to treatments.
  • Book your spa treatments in advance. Many people wait until they arrive and find they are out of luck with getting a time slot. Book your treatments at the same time you book your resort stay.
  • If you have booked a treatment at your chosen resort be there a bit early. Rushing to a much-needed spa appointment after a hike through the Mayan ruins may feel like an absolute stress!
  • Learn how to relax and leave your worries behind! Leave technology at home or in your hotel room. Allow yourself to truly get away from it all!
