From outdoor Jacuzzis and outdoor spa baths to entire spa gardens, some of the most unusual spa treatments and experiences incorporate the great outdoors. The exclusive rooftop spa garden at Rudding Park, for example, is a brand new addition that incorporates unique experiences such as an oxygen pod, as well as providing space that’s ideal for couples and groups of friends to enjoy time together.
At Galgorm Spa and Resort in Ireland, the gardens are an ever-present part of the spa experience, with views of the River Maine as you do yoga in the River House (on stilts). Exclusive offerings include outdoor hot tubs and the Beltane Experience, where you relax around a sunken fire with friends before enjoying a dip in the 12 person hot tub.
Of course, they are not the only spa destinations to offer beautiful outside spa experiences. Amongst the best outdoor spas are Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa in Surrey, which takes you from the inside out through a multiplicity of pools, even when there’s snow on the ground. There’s also The Spa Hotel at Ribby Hall, where the Zen Garden makes it one of the UK’s favourite spas with outdoor hot tubs.
