Leading spa travel company, Spabreaks.com, is launching the first dedicated collection of the UK’s best spas and spa hotels, in response to customer demand for exceptional spa experiences.
The Elysium Collection is an exclusive, hand-selected portfolio of the best spas across the UK, along with carefully curated spa experiences designed to highlight the best each destination has to offer.
Frustrated by the industry’s proliferation of discount-led offerings which prioritise price over experience, Spabreaks.com’s Elysium Collection is the first spa specific collection of exceptional hotels and destinations. Each spa in the Collection will provide guests with an exclusively created experience such as a welcome cocktail, preferential treatment time or late check-out.
Spabreaks.com’s Elysium Collection is built on the company’s unrivalled knowledge of the spa industry, celebrating variety, individuality, customer service and distinction. The Collection is named for Greek mythology’s Elysium – a paradise for gods and heroes described as a place or state of perfect happiness – exactly the feeling invoked by best spa experiences and embodied in the Collection’s featured spas.
Each experience is bookable via a dedicated team of the most experienced spa consultants within Spabreaks.com’s UK based call centre. This provides exceptional customer service and a tailored approach to booking, ensuring guests receive the best advice on where to go to suit their wishes, as well as a gold standard experience from the moment they pick up the phone.
Launching with 15 spas around the UK – with a further ten to be added during Summer 2019 – spa goers booking an Elysium Collection experience via Spabreaks.com’s call centre will receive an exclusive luxury gift set from skin care specialist Zelens. Following the exceptional spa venues already offering experiences in the Collection, Spabreaks.com aims to raise this to 50 by the end of the year showcasing the best in the industry across the UK, making it the go-to Collection for the very best spa experiences available.
Spabreaks.com Founder, Abi Wright, says: “Spabreaks.com’s mission is to showcase the wide variety of health and wellbeing experiences available for everybody. The Elysium Collection is an extension of that mission, recognising the increasing demand from spa travellers who want to find exceptional, bucket list spa experiences that really encapsulate the meaning of spa; restoration, relaxation, health, wellbeing and escapism. The Elysium Collection is a celebration of the incredible experiences that the spa industry in the UK has to offer; the gold standard – where there are no cookie cutter models and each destination has its own unique qualities to offer. It’s not just about the biggest spas with the most facilities and five-star hotels, it’s about the spas which truly offer the best of the industry.”
