October 8 – 14 was National Chocolate week but people could indulge their sweet tooth without piling on the calories by booking cheap flights to Gran Canaria, where chocolate-based spa treatments were on offer across the island.
Chocolate is well known for lifting the mood and, with October sometimes being a comedown after the summer, National Chocolate Week (NCW) could not have come at a better time. A surer way of beating the blues is to book cheap flights to Gran Canaria, which is almost permanently bathed in sunshine and, during NCW, visitors had the chance to get a double-dose of the feel-good factor and whittle down their waistlines at the same time.
Plenty of Chocolate Opportunities
Like in the UK, the sun-kissed island offered plenty of opportunities to indulge in the art of the chocolatier, which extended to the hotel spas as well as the restaurants. The Gran Canaria Spa, Wellness & Health Association was offering affordable cocoa-flavoured treatment packages at luxury hotels and resorts across the island, giving holidaymakers the chance to soak up both the sunshine and the benefits of cocoa oil exfoliation and chocolate cream body wraps.
Venues ranged from the five-star Sheraton Salobre Spa and Golf Resort, to the three-star Hotel Eugenia Victoria, where a decadent 90-minute Caressing Chocolate package was just one of the delicious items on the menu.
