You can get closer with warrants:
The ordeal warrants a week off work.
Though that is more deserves than desires.
From the way the sentence is structured I don't believe an emotional appeal can be made in it, as something like:
The ordeal allures a week off work.
Sounds rather forced, and can be confused to mean things like:
The ordeal desires a week off work.
I don't believe you're looking for the ordeal itself to pack some bags and go on holiday.
From my perspective you get more flexibility by rearranging your sentence:
The ordeal made a week off work adjective
Where adjective could be many things: desirable, inviting, enticing, and many others
