The Budget Spa - more bang for your buck

According to an article in the Timesonline.uk, the ‘Budget Spa’ is here to stay. Long gone are the days when the spa experience was limited to a wealthy few - now the spa-goer is definitely more middle-class and very definitely rather fussy when it comes to value-for-money. According to SpaFinder’s annual Spa Trend Report (for 2011) the latest fad is all about snagging the best possible deal.

In South Africa you will find a spa in almost every city or town, but make sure you shop around and look out for the best deal available. Many of the well-established spas offer day packages or mid-week packages at superb rates. Some of the spas also offer a massage or facial as part of a holiday package - so look out for the freebies. Remember if you are doing block bookings, often discounted rates are thrown in for good measure. Another good point to remember is that these days spas are offering ‘express’ treatments at fantastic prices. Happy Spa-ing without breaking the bank.
