Spa treatment advice

Part of the Guides

Spa treatments are central to the whole spa experience. They can often shape the day, preparing the skin and body in the spa facilities first and leading up to a beautiful experience that will really help you to relax and unwind. Treatments can last anything from 30 minutes to two hours, and we always recommend opting for at last 60 minutes to really get the benefit. There are so many options available as well, so whatever you want to achieve and whether you’re a first time spa goer or a seasoned pro, there’s a spa treatment for everybody - and we recommend you try as many as you can!
