From exceptional design to unique spa experiences...
For those looking for a city chic spa break, few places could be more special than Rena Spa at The Midland. An award-winning spa and a beautiful hotel, it’s just five of the reasons we love it…
Exceptional interior design
The underground spa is a haven of peace and tranquillity. It’s romantic and beautifully designed with different areas for the various elements of your spa journey, from the seating area for lunch or afternoon tea in your robe to the four thermal areas and sleep chambers.
Unique spa experiences
There are a number of impressive experiences to enjoy such as the Caribbean Storm and Arctic Rain showers, but the pièce de résistance are the relaxation areas. Here, you can choose to rediscover sleep in a hanging pod cocoon, an ergonomic sleep chamber or a sound cancelling egg chair.
Beautiful spa treatments
The spa is complete with a range of spa treatments from brands including Caudalie (famed for harnessing the healing powers of the vine), Spanish skincare line Germaine De Cappucini, results driven Crystal Clear, and the famed Jessica Nails.
A central London location
The spa’s location makes it an exceptional place for a weekend in Manchester. At the heart of the city, it’s within easy reach of everything that Manchester has to offer from shops and museums to bars and nightlife. That said, it’s also got an excellent reputation for its own restaurant - Adam Reid at The French.
An adult-only hotel and spa
The hotel and spa are both adult only, making it perfect for a romantic weekend away. Interiors are chic and seductive, brimming with jewel tones, textured fabrics and mood lighting. Little wonder it’s played host to kings, queens, prime ministers and rock stars alike.

Somerset is a pretty part of the UK, famed for everything from its food (Cheddar cheese) to its festivals (notably Glastonbury). Its combination of pretty towns and villages alongside enchanting natural scenery make it both an exciting and relaxing place to explore, especially on a spa day or break. Here are some of the top things to do alongside all that pampering.
While a full spa day (or several days) is a thing of beauty, being short on time doesn't mean going without a little rest and relaxation. Opting for a morning, afternoon or evening spa experience is a wonderful way to supercharge your time off. Here, Harry from the Spabreaks.com team talks about a spa morning at Guildford Harbour Hotel & Spa.
