Operator launches weekend breaks for divorcees

A British tour operator is launching weekend breaks specifically for women coming through a divorce, jumping on a trend in the US.

Orchid City and Spas, which has been offering luxury spa breaks and stylish hen weekends since 2011, says divorce parties are now catching on in the UK.

It says it has already helped dozens of newly-divorced ladies 'relish in their new lease of life' by getting away for a few nights away with family and friends for good food, great company and some indulgent pampering.

Managing director Paul Southgate said: "With studies suggesting that around 42% of marriages now end in divorce, we expect our divorce parties to grow in popularity.

"Society's attitude towards divorce is shifting and people are becoming much more accepting of it. We know that any relationship break up can be stressful and upsetting, so our new divorce party breaks are designed to be a fun break in relaxing surroundings.

"They're an ideal opportunity for newly-single ladies to reconnect with their friends, consider their options and really have some fun in the process."
He said while divorce parties have been popular in the US for a while, the trend is new to the UK.

The specialist operator sells weekend packages in four- and five-star spa and boutique hotels in cities throughout the UK including in London, Bath, Oxford and Cheltenham.~
