The advantage of the island of Madeira for a spa break is that one can go all year round without fear of shivering. Short of offering the year-round spring that can be found in the Canaries, Madeira performs fairly well with a solid 16°C from December to February, which means that between massages, body scrubs and floral baths the weather is perfect for visiting the island. Nestled in among the eucalyptus trees on one of Funchal's many lofty hideouts, far from the hubbub of the port, lies Choupana Hills Resort and Spa. The hotel houses a spa brought to Madeira by top British brand Elemis and offers everything you could wish for from a luxury wellness centre, including aromatherapy, rasul and holistic massages. Through a combination of natural active ingredients and the latest technology Elemis can claim to have some of the best treatments t be found anywhere. Therapies can be chosen 'à la carte' or alternatively there are one, two or three day programmes to enjoy, allowing you to sample a range of treatments. Together with the stunning setting of the hotel, the bliss of what the spa has to offer will make you wish you could stay on holiday forever!
