Malta - Spa And Away The Best
With unemployment high and some jobs getting harder to hold onto, plus for those with long term careers often finding more pressure today from their
employers than ever before, finding a way to relax during time off has led to a surge in popularity for spa holidays.
And it's not just employees who are heading for the spa - company directors and owners are feeling just as much if not pressure during the economic
downturn, trying to keep their companies going and having to plan ahead in uncertain times.
For many a conventional holiday is not enough to completely relax, but they find a spa holiday lets their troubles float away, leaving them relaxed and
better able to face the world when they return to work.
And Malta is fast becoming one of Europe's top destinations for a spa holiday, with hotels specialising in the market, with facilities and fully trained staff
Gone are the days when spa holidays were just for the rich and famous, they still take them, but theirs is an experience that the many can now enjoy,
and not just the few.
With many Malta hotels offering the service, prices have fallen in real terms over the years.
Quite a few hotels now have spas and gyms as part of their facilities, but some of the Malta hotels are being recognised as specialists in the field, and
it makes it easy to plan holidays in Malta around a spa hotel.
The Fortina Spa Resort in Silema for example is five star and offers a choice of over 200 treatments, designed to relax and soothe their guests.
The Fortina has been featured in UK newspapers and Sunday supplements and praised by travel journalists for its quality.
The old image of a spa holiday was a lettuce leaf for lunch - that's all changed now, and The Fortina has first class cuisine, making sure the overall
experience is as good as it gets.
With flights coming down in price in recent years, other hotels are trying to match the Fortina's reputation for excellence during holidays in Malta for
those wanting this kind of trip.
