The latest trend from America: spa hideaways. As soon as autumn comes around, we begin to miss the warm and lazy summer evenings. Tired and listless, we long to feel refreshed – body and soul. Those who live in an urban environment begin to plan a temporary escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. A generation ago, most would have simply gone off for a weekend in the country. But the modern solution is to spend a relaxing weekend much closer to home – often without even leaving your home city. The secret: to disappear off to a true "spa hideaway". This is why an increasing number of luxury hotels, in reaction to this latest trend, are transforming their pool areas into wonderful spa oases where their guests can relax, exercise, or indulge in health and beauty treatments.
