From: Spa Secrets,
If you want to trade Britain's unpredictable spring weather for sunnier climes – and enjoy a spot of pampering too – Le Meridien Resort & Spa in Cyprus is a real find. I was given an amazing room overlooking the hotel's pools and was feeling relaxed right from the start. But that was nothing compared to how I felt after a day in the resort's fantastic spa.
Making sure I had plenty of time to use the facilities was a good idea – there is a lovely relaxation room, steam, sauna and plenty of swimming pools.
Best of all was the Thalasso experience with both indoor and outdoor mosaic-tiled seawater pools each with a different salinity content and temperature and soothing waterfalls to ease those aches and pains.
The luxury spa has 34 treatment rooms offering a wide range of Thalgo and Elemis treatments. It was hard to choose what to have but I finally opted for a traditional massage, pedicure and a thalassotherapy treatment. Each was first-class and the expert staff were attentive and very knowledgeable.
I finished each perfect day by the pool with a superb cocktail in hand, before feasting on delicious food in the hotel's Chinese restaurant.
On the menu: Elemis and Thalgo treatments
Signature treatment: The spa is most famous for thalassotherapy.
Cost: From £200 per room per night B&B
