As you will know by now, at Spabreaks.com we are of the opinion that alongside the sweating and the steaming and the healthy eating, health is also about a little bit of indulgence, so when Rachael Pickles booked a spa day with us last month, we decided she deserved a little extra and sent her on a second break to Malmaison Manchester, where she got ready to meet our classical crush, Il Divo, and to see them live in concert at the Manchester MEN Arena as well!
Let’s cut to the chase, what were Il Divo like in person?
Surprisingly they were all very down to earth and friendly!
Did you have a favourite group member? (go on, we won’t tell anyone)
My favourite is Sebastian – I think he is gorgeous … although Carlos seemed a firm favourite with the majority of the audience.
Are they as good in concert as they sound on the CDs?
They are better in concert, you can see how they all work together and the live performance accompanied with a full orchestra sounded amazing!
What did you like most about Malmaison Manchester?
From the moment we arrived the staff were really friendly and efficient. The hotel is lovely and we had a gorgeous room; and it’s in the perfect location for a bit of afternoon shopping in Manchester.
What treatment did you have?
I had a facial and my husband had a back massage, it was a real treat and very relaxing.
What did your husband think of Il Divo?
He thought the concert was brilliant and he was also very impressed with the hotel facilities.
What was your favourite part of the experience?
It’s split between the concert and the treatment … I couldn’t choose!
Our next competition coming up is to win tickets to see Westlife on their final tour … what do you think, worth booking a spa break for?
Definitely! I never would have thought I’d win such an amazing competition!
