Like many spa venue services, there is some overlap between a spa resort, a hotel spa and a destination spa. As with a destination spa experience a spa resort will offer guests on site residential accommodation. And as with a hotel spa experience spa treatments at a spa resort can be bought in an 'a la carte' manner. This means guests can purchase a personalised spa experience based on the services and treatments in which they'd like to induldge.

Urban spas are found in inner city areas like London an Manchester. Urban spa venues often offer the same services as a destination or hotel spa. However, due to their location urban spas are often used in the same manner as a day spa - a quick in/out spa and beauty treatment facility.

Weekend spa breaks
As the name suggests a weekend spa usually offers a two or three day spa experience spanning from Friday evening to Sunday. Weekend spa breaks are typically designed to be as relaxing and revitalising as possible - the idea being that a mini break at a weekend spa venue can feel like a two week holiday.
