At Apex we know the importance of health and wellbeing.

With properties across the UK, our wellness spas are a haven for leisure travellers, business visitors and couples looking for a romantic getaway. Many of our properties are also fully equipped with state-of-the-art techno-gyms.

Let Angie, our Yu Spa Manager, kick start your 2019 with her top five New Year resolution ideas:

Book some ‘me’ time

Beat the January blues and book yourself some ‘me’ time at one of our great urban wellness spas.

Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa in Dundee is a great destination for couples, young families and solo travellers looking to relax and unwind.

With views over Victoria Dock, the four-star hotel is just minutes from the city centre and close to train and bus stations.

Booking a stay at the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel means you are right in the heart of Edinburgh. The spa features an ozone pool, steam room and sauna with a range of Elemis treatments available.

Apex City of London perfectly combines a luxurious stay with the chance to visit some of the capital’s favourite tourist destinations.

As part of a £1.5million refurbishment, the hotel partnered with PURE Spa & Beauty to bring an oasis of calm to the capital, allowing guests and locals to escape the busy streets of London and enjoy a fantastic spa experience.

Eat more fruit and veg

Fruit and vegetables

Dry January and Veganuary kicked off the year for many, but the long-term benefits of a month of no alcohol or a healthier diet are debatable – make a commitment you can stick to and enjoy greater long-term benefits.

Adding more fruit and vegetables to your diet is a great way to start; snack on fruit high in Vitamin C and reap the benefits, reducing your meat intake will push also down the saturated fat and cholesterol, reducing your risk of heart disease.

Walk and take the stairs 

Walk the stairs

Smart watches, Fitbits and a whole host of wearable technology will have filled stockings over the festive period.

Make sure they are put to good use and smash your targets in 2019 by taking the stairs instead of the lift and take a 30 minute walk up the high street on your lunch.

Put down your phone

No phone time

The aforementioned smart-tech has meant we’re more connected than ever. Put down your phone, engage in the moment and have more down time.


Have a clear out

Clear out wardrobe

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

A New Year declutter is a great way to ring the changes. Start with your wardrobe – donate the surplus to charity and enjoy the extra space! Carry the declutter theme on around the house and create a more restful and welcoming space.
