If it’s your first time on a spa day or break, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Let the receptionist know you haven’t been before and speak to members of staff if there’s anything you’re unsure about – they will all be happy to answer questions and putyou at ease, after all, we all want you to have the bext experience possible!
It’s good manners to turn your mobile phone off when you’re at a spa. Leave it in your locker and use the time to have a digi detox and totally relax. Even if your idea of a good time is Whatsapping your best friend, it might not be everyone else’s, so relax, unwind and enjoy the mobile free peace and quiet – the selfies can wait until later.
First things first, always take at least one swimming cozzie – in fact, we recommend two! Take one to swim in, and one to wear when you’re having your spa treatment – after all, no one likes a soggy bottom. Some spas will provide robes, slippers and towels for you to use throughout the day, but it’s worth checking this in advance of your visit, just in case. Some spas encourage you to wear your dressing gown all day even in the restaurant at lunchtime, but at some it isn’t feasible, so it’s always a good idea to take your own pair of flipflops and some comfy clothing to lounge around in when you’re not using the wet facilities – you can check the rules by speaking to a Spabreaks.com consultant or checking with reception on arrival.
Always arrive for spa treatments 10 or 15 minutes early to check in, fill in your consultation form and generally have a relaxed experience rather than rushing. If you have time it’s always nice to use the pool, sauna and steam room before a treatment, and have a shower as well to open up the pores and relax the muscles. It also means you can leave products on your skin for as long as possible afterwards without washing them off, to let them continue to work their magic!
Leading on from that, it’s always a good iea to do any shaving the night before a treatment to stop skin from being irritated by products, and try to remove make-up before having a treatment as well, particualrly if you’re having a facial!
Just like going to a restaurant , a tip of 10-20% is always appropriate and welcomed if you were happy with your treatment.
It’s always a good idea to take a pound coin for the lockers, just in case, and we always recommend taking a good book or a magazine to read by the pool or in the relaxation room. On overnight spa breaks it’s also a good idea to take a separate bag with you in addition to your suitcase so you can take any bits and pieces you want for the day to the spa area without returning to your room.
Have a wonderful time!
