This metropolitan corner of the north west of England thrives, with buzzing cities like Liverpool at its heart as well as easy escapes to scenic locations such as the beaches and golf courses at Southport, the nature reserve at Formby, or the parks and museums at Birkenhead. The result for spa goers is that there’s plenty to see and do for families, solo spa goers, couples and groups of friends.
One of the best selling new additions to Merseyside spa hotels is Maya Blue Wellness. Located on the docks in Liverpool, this former rum factory retains its industrial style, but has transformed a functional building into a haven of tranquility complete with a subterranean spa. An ideal spot to preen and pamper before exploring the city, it is perfect for small groups of friends heading to The Cavern afterwards to party like the Beatles.
For those partial to a good thermal suite, The Spa @ Suites Hotel is another favourite for spa days and breaks in Merseyside. With excellent ratings from reviewers, and something for groups of friends and couples alike, it is romantic, charming and contemporary. Couples particularly love the rasul treatments and the all-suite accommodation. Meanwhile, groups luxuriate in the amount of space and the high-class treatments. Afternoon teas and cheap and cheerful last minute spa days are also readily available with plenty of style from brand names including Marriott and Village Spas.
The variety of things to do in Merseyside undoubtedly attracts families visiting the area, and hotels and spas offer family friendly hospitality with plenty of time for parents to unwind in style at the likes of Best Western Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa in Southport.
