(Source: spacriteriaga.htm) Because so many vacationers look to hotels and resorts for their time away from home, hotel and resort beauty spas are often likely to provide recreation and sporting activities, in addition to their beauty spa services. It is not unusual to find such facilities as golf courses, tennis courts, riding, skiing, or water sports venues, either on the premises or nearby. Many facilities also offer activities for children, to entertain them while their parents enjoy nighttime entertainment and dancing, as well as lounge services. These all-inclusive hotels and resorts provide the level of service for which a well-appointed and professionally staffed beauty spa would be known, along with the more traditional vacation features. Many of these are located in popular and attractive locations, so that the journey and the surrounding area are as inviting to vacationers as the hotel or resort itself.
