You could help raise productivity with some nice incentives – like a relaxing spa day. Who wouldn't look forward to a heated pool, massages, hot tubs with a tasty lunch and probably prosecco! Below A&I have come up with our top spa destinations for you, some expensive and some not!

Located all over the UK, the Marriott Spa is the ideal place to chill out, mostly placed within Hotels, Country Clubs, Manors and Stately Homes all of which are in beautiful parklands. There are many different packages you can have to help you relax and unwind from massages, manicures, pedicures and facials. After the treatments you can have a relaxing swim in the pool to work up an appetite for a light lunch or afternoon tea!
Melton Mowbray, the land of the pork pie, is also home to this sophisticated spa. So, whether you're looking to start off your New Year's resolution at the gym or just want to have some time to yourself a relaxing weekend away may be just the thing. Feel all your tension melt away in the thermal spa or take full advantage of the new rooftop infinity pool and lounge.
Gilpin Hotel & Lake House
If isolation appeals to you then where better to relocate than to the Lake District? Embrace the fresh countryside air. The lake house is designed for two people to stay and disconnect from the world. Therapists will use many different aromatherapy oils to ensure you are at your most relaxed. You can go through the garden to the thermal pool and sauna and then to the spa, a wooden cabin that can hold the doors open whilst you receive your treatments which gives you lovely views of the Gilpin Lake whilst your tension melts away into your massage. After this you can carry on your cosy afternoon by drowning yourself in furry throws and blankets whilst you watch over the lake and indulge yourself in afternoon-tea.
