Description

This book is aimed specifically at the growing number of people taking health holidays worldwide. The author has selected more than 100 centres, ranging from modern health resorts like the Spa on the Beach, Bermuda, to traditional spas such as Baden in Germany or Evian in France. For each centre she gives details of accommodation, sports, health and beauty facilities, special menus offered by hotels etc, plus notable attractions in the surrounding area. In the final section, on health cruises, Carol Wright shows that the tradition of gourmandizing on board the luxury liners is fading in the health-conscious Eighties.show more
