Top 10 romantic spa hotels

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, love proves it’s good for mind, body and soul as well as the heart, with’s top 10 romantic spa hotels…


Ockenden Manor, West Sussex

This intimate hotel is just the setting for a quiet romantic spa break with your loved one. Enjoy a ramble over the Sussex Downs then back to the hotel for a walk through the rainforest shower, fed by Ockenden’s own natural spring, followed by a swim between the indoor and outdoor heated pools. Have a massage in the couple’s treatment room, and why not dip into the seven course tasting menu for a decadent end to the day.



Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa, West Sussex

Are you and your partner energetic types? A romantic spa break at Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa can get you training together on their ‘Surf & Turf’ Fitness Retreat. The three days include strength and release sessions, a cardio jog, pad work, kickboxing, beach burn, high intensity training and much more. If you fancy a more relaxing time just enjoy the pool and organic treatments available in the spa before a stroll along Climping Beach.



Sofitel So Spa, London

A tale of the two most romantic cities in the world awaits at this central London hotel and spa. After a stroll down nearby Bond Street and perhaps a peep at Buckingham Palace, park yourselves in a dual treatment room with a glass of champagne each and enjoy a personalised massage and facial. Time then to relax and contemplate whatever the evening may bring.



Peckforton Castle Hotel & Spa, Cheshire

There’s a four poster bed up for grabs at this castle in the Cheshire countryside, featured in many films and programmes including Robin Hood and Dr. Who. The fairytale setting, coupled with their decadent spa treatments makes for a super romantic spa break. Unusual outdoor activities such as falconry, archery and quad biking are also available, with a triple AA Rosette awarded restaurant for your delectation at the end of the day.


Headland Hotel

The Headland Hotel, Cornwall

Beach chic is the theme at the Headland Hotel, the ultimate seaside destination, where the garden blends into the beach. Couples can enjoy a Full Body Relaxing Massage in a couple’s treatment room, then 20 minutes to unwind in the private VIP suite on the Couples Spa Day. Bring the dog and head out for a stroll afterwards. What more could you want?



The Grand, Sussex

Grand by name, grand by nature, snag some precious couples’ time on a romantic spa break at this iconic hotel in Brighton. Often called London by the sea, Brighton has so much to offer - marvel at The Royal Pavilion, snoop round the antique and jewellery shops in The Lanes, catch a show at the Theatre Royal or simply stroll along the sea front. Then relax together in the state of the art spa, recently the beneficiary of a five million pound makeover. Chink your glasses together with a glass of bubbly too, you deserve it!



Kenshõ Boutique Hotel and Suites, Greece

Fancy a room with your own private pool or Jacuzzi facing out on a turquoise sea in glorious Mykonos? Now that’s what I call romantic and it could be yours on a spa break at this luxurious boutique hotel. Tear yourself away for a little while and enjoy a body scrub, a facial, or a massage in the spa, a relaxing hot bath in the hamman or a swim in the pool or the sea. Mykonos town is just two kilometres away with loads of restaurant choices and the food at the hotel is great too.

An ultra modern spa nestled beside a beautiful 17th century manor house on a country estate in County Cork. Look out onto the gardens and grounds as you work out or swim thanks to the glass cube that houses the spa and gym, relax with a treatment in one of the couples rooms, then get out in the fresh air on a romantic walk around the grounds.



Kilronan Castle, Ireland

A magnificent castle in County Roscommon, Kilronan Castle is all about Irish breakfasts, champagne and beautiful treatments.
