The perfect birthday celebration

21st birthday spa packages

From an ultra chic day out to a fun girls’ night in, 21st birthdays should always be done in style. For example, the glitz, the glamour, and the undeniable beauty of the art deco inspired interiors on a London birthday spa day at The Ned makes for a perfect celebration. Sister to the Soho House Group, go to the express nail bar or the barbershop and definitely follow it up with cocktails!

Then again, Pennyhill Park is one of the most luxurious spa experiences you could possibly ask for, making it perfect for a special celebration. The Tudor mansion and its exquisite spa sit separately, so you can visit for a spa day or overnight and have a complete experience. On a spa day, definitely opt for afternoon tea in the spa, for an overnight break, book into the Michelin star restaurant.

50th Birthday spa packages

While all birthdays are special, there are some milestones that deserve an extra touch of glamour. For example, a 50th birthday spa package should see you living the high life at some of the most luxurious destinations. For example, the Elan Spa at Mallory Court in Warwickshire is an amazing hotel and spa for foodies. This Relais & Chateaux destination offers a traditional hotel experience and a contemporary spa. It has a touch of magic to it, being situated in a sheltered wooded area, screened from the hotel by trees.

Another firm favourite is Hoar Cross Hall in Staffordshire. Described by one spabreaker as ‘Disney for adults’, Hoar Cross Hall is a beautiful country house hotel complete with an exceptional adult only spa, whether you’re looking for a happy birthday spa day or spa hotel birthday packages for overnight breaks. Set in the confines of a stately home dating back to 1871, the hotel is romantic and stylish, offering 21st century hospitality alongside old world charm. 50 acres of grounds offer an array of genteel activities ranging from tennis to Tai Chi. Meanwhile, the spa offers a complete range of health and wellbeing facilities befitting birthday pampering ideas. That includes (but is not limited to) a 26-metre saltwater vitality pool, a Snooze Room and a Nordic heat and ice suite.

Birthday group spa packages

Of course, tradition has it that birthdays are celebrated with groups - friends, family, small groups or large groups. The great news is there are some spa hotels that are perfectly geared towards birthday group spa packages. In particular, Celtic Manor in South Wales is a hotel with huge grounds and an abundance of activities. It has three golf courses, multiple pools and activities throughout the grounds as well as five star standards.

Equally, Whittlebury Hall in Northamptonshire has everything you need to celebrate your spa birthday with friends. It is the quintessential group venue for spa party ideas. Beautiful and extensive grounds provide the setting. It has a country house hotel vibe but contemporary rooms and suites are spacious, and the spa and leisure facilities are huge – it’s perfect for pamper party ideas. The thermal suite is the main draw card for groups. There’s plenty of space and facilities that include an aromatherapy crystal steam, caldarium, experience showers, foot spas, a hydrotherapy pool, ice cave, roman salt steam, sanarium and tepidarium. There are 23 treatment rooms, so you and your friends can all be pampered at the same time. The hotel also offers regular tribute and party nights to bring the whole experience together in fun and flirty (often nostalgic – Take That 2) style.

Birthday spa gift ideas Spa breaks also make excellent birthday gifts. It’s the kind of gift that shows you care now, but also gives your loved one the option to peruse, plan where they want to go and pick a treatment (or two, or three) to enjoy while they’re there. The best news is that they come in a variety of options.

Our top picks

Whether it’s a birthday treat for you, your dad, mum, sisters, brothers or friends, whether it’s a 21st birthday or a 50th, birthday spa packages offer the time, space and flexibility to create a self-care gift or celebration that brings together all the best bits about spending time with someone you love. The point about a birthday is that it’s all about you, whether you stay in or go out a birthday should leave the guest of honour feeling special, loved and in our opinion, pampered as well. With that in mind, we have (unsurprisingly), always been fans of a spa birthday party and spa birthday gifts, so here are a few favourites to give you inspiration...

Spa gift vouchers

If you want to give a birthday present that your friend or family member can choose themselves, without worrying about the price, take a look at spa gift vouchers. Focusing on the spa experience itself, they enable you to give someone a choice of experiences when it comes to where and when they go. Equally, if you have a favourite spa destination that you really want to give a loved one the chance to experience and enjoy, or perhaps your loved one has told you about a spa they’re desperate to visit, you can send it to them and they can go whenever they want!
