A spa and dinner experience feels like one of the most beautifully crafted experiences, allowing you to relax and unwind in the day, take time to feel your best and then dress up for quality time with someone you care about.
Whether it’s spa and dinner for two on romantic spa breaks or getaways with friends, the combination of sensory experiences is one of the most lovely ways to treat yourself as well as a loved one.
For romantic spa breaks for example, few experiences can be better than a spa day with dinner at Rudding Park in Yorkshire. The exquisite rooftop spa garden with its outdoor thermal facilities is a treat for spending time with friends or a partner, especially given that there’s a bar serving teas, coffees and Champagne as you lounge in the infinity pool. However, The Clocktower restaurant is pure romance as you dine on local cuisine in a restaurant designed around a hundred year old Catalonian olive tree in the centre of the room.
For those on a spa day at the luxurious South Lodge, the spa’s own Botanica is the healthy restaurant offering a largely plant based menu, drawing on the South Downs as a larder for fresh ingredients. Alternatively, the hotel itself is home to Tom Kemble in The Pass, which takes the chef’s table concept to a new level.
Equally, a group spa break or hen party can be uniquely personalised on a spa night with dinner. Perhaps you will opt for a private dining suite and decorate it in keeping with a friend’s impending nuptials, or colour code balloons for a baby shower.
Some of our favourite destinations for a hotel and spa dinner for groups include the award-winning Vale Resort in Wales where they have a banqueting menu in a private dining room and the Salamanza Champagne Bar – amusingly named after a 12 bottle capacity Champagne - is perfect for drinks late into the evening.
