Lifestyle in spring
It’s not just nature that undergoes a renewal in spring. Lifestyle breaks are designed to tear you away from the hurly burly of life and leave you feeling like a brand new version of you. Treat your body to a thorough ‘spring clean’ with an indulgent escape to a luxury spa or, if you like, start your renewal from the inside by learning to meditate in a Japanese Garden. Prefer spending a relaxing holiday in the company of family or friends? A glamping group holiday with beauty therapies, fishing packages and personal chef service might be right up your street.
Purify the mind, body and soul with pure Japanese meditation then indulge in an oasis of relaxation at a detox retreat near Newark.
