We provide a totally bespoke booking service for corporate spa breaks and will be able to give you date and treatment availability at any of our affiliated spa venues. If you are rewarding staff or entertaining clients or even want to arrange staff incentives then we can help you now.
A well organised event makes all the difference and will demonstrate your skill and attention to detail - this is where our experience can help you to achieve not only the best deal but the best run event (please see corporate testimonials below).
We have been the UK’s official spa booking and advisory service for a number of years and Spabreak Direct is the only spa travel agent which does not take any payment from you, the customer – you simply pay the venue direct and usually on departure.
We were contacted by IMG, the premier global sports and media group, with the remit to source a suitable venue for a top European football club to hold their pre-season training camp. FC Barcelona were playing in the inaugural Wembley Cup featuring games against Tottenham and Al-Ahly and needed a superb hotel and first class training facilities close to London. We recommended Danesfield House Hotel and Spa in Marlow, Buckinghamshire and Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre.
Danesfield House Hotel & Spa
Danesfield House Hotel and Spa is a picturesque Country House Hotel set within 65 acres of magnificent estate grounds overlooking the Thames. It was converted in 1991 from a Victorian country mansion house to the magnificent luxury hotel it is today. The hotel has a four star AA and RAC with Blue Ribbon rating, a four-star Silver Award from the English Tourism Council and provides guests with superb spa and leisure facilities. The hotel has numerous amenities which helped the players start to get ready for the coming season. After working hard on the training ground the squad could do extra exercise in the gym next to the hotel and then relax after their physical effort in the next door spa.
Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre
Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre
Only 10 minutes from the hotel and set in quite spectacular and secluded surroundings, Bisham Abbey is one of the UK's National Sports Centres - training grounds and centres of excellence for the country's leading sportsmen and women. Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre offers some of the best sporting facilities in the UK, ideal for sports training camps. Servicing the needs of many renowned sporting teams and organisations, most recently Barcelona FC, but also Manchester United and both England’s and Scotland’s international rugby teams.
Both Danesfield House and Bisham Abbey were delighted to host FC Barcelona from the 21st to the 26th July 2009 and the superb quality of both facilities was greatly appreciated by this prestigious European football club. The Vice President of the club, Rafael Yuste, presented Alan Dooley, Deputy General Manager at Danesfield House, with a commemorative plaque along with Victor Valdez and Bojan Krkic and congratulated the hotel on its high levels of service and excellent hospitality.
I have been very impressed with the level of service and active customer care that I have received in all my dealings to date with spabreak direct. As someone who is in the Customer Relationship and Hospitality industry, I find it refreshing to experience friendly and professional people who do what they say they will, on time and correctly first time.

A bespoke day at a spa should leave everyone feeling great and knowing that they matter to your company – either as a valued member of staff or as an important, valued client. Spabreak Direct will not only suggest suitable venues but will check availability at all of them and arrange those little extras that make all the difference on the day ie. A complimentary welcome drinks reception with fresh orange or bucks fizz before moving on to their individual treatments is a lovely, sociable start to the event for your guests and for a mix of clients is a great ice-breaker. We can often arrange other extras ie. Spa gift for guests to take away at the end of the day.
A selection below of some of the best days out – in no particular order, these suggestions include fantastic value offers through to top-end five star properties but do call us for more suggestions and the latest hot off the press offers!
My work colleagues and I have just returned from an amazingly relaxing spa break and we wanted to thank you for making all the arrangements. This is the second time we have been to the Welcombe Spa and each time we have had a lovely weekend. It was certainly worth upgrading to the executive room! Many thanks again.
If your guests will be staying overnight then we may also be able to arrange a complimentary private dining room for the evening which adds value and ensures a memorable event. If you need single occupancy for everyone, it can be expensive but again, we can often get these rates reduced for you. Planning the spa itinerary is very important but with our Spabreak Direct customer services team here which includes ex beauty therapists and travel agents, we know exactly how to organise your event to your specification and the necessary planning beforehand is essential to ensure that it all runs like clockwork from the day of arrival through to everyone’s departure.
Incentives work! In difficult times, it can get rather gloomy in the office for some, but you still need top performing people so an incentive to hit targets and raise or maintain performance levels is a great way to do this, increasing your profitability for a fraction of the cost of salary hikes and bonuses.
We offer the Spa Reward Points Scheme which allows you to either discount a spa break or discount online beauty products. You can offer your staff the option to be rewarded with Spa Reward Points which can then be redeemed in either way. Alternatively, you can offer your staff an incentive to stay at any of the spa venues on spabreak direct and let them have a Spa Gift Voucher stating a specific amount to spend.
To help your business’s cashflow too, you can pay for the Spa Reward Points or Gift Vouchers later when they are awarded and used, rather than when vouchers are first ordered and your staff are first told of the incentive.
Many of the spa hotels featured on www.spabreak.co.uk have superb golf courses and some of them provide speciality golf and spa breaks which give the option of a spa treatment or a round of golf as part of the package.

Most people who book a spa break are couples or friends who want to stay at a spa hotel on a Friday or Saturday night. The spa venues therefore, tend to have much more availability midweek and as such will often offer very competitive rates to companies booking between Monday and Thursday. The spas will also be quieter, allowing your group a wider choice of treatments and treatment times and in some cases you may even be able to book the venue for exclusive use.
