Nothing can beat the self-indulgence offered by a spa hotel when it comes to relaxation, well-deserved treatments, physical fitness activities and wonderful cuisine.
In times gone by spas were built close to sources of mineral water or hot water springs. These days, they can be found all over the country.
We’ve collected the most appealing spa hotels that can be found in the south of the country. These spa hotels deliver the most outstanding experience, facilities and treatments. Here’s our selection:
Situated in the beautiful Cotswolds, Dormy House is top drawer when it comes to facilities. In addition to treatment rooms, gyms, classes and a thermal suite, you’ll find a mud room, a lavender sauna and an outdoor hot tub. What’s not to like! Pamper yourself in this opulent location where there’s also an infinity pool and a nail parlour. If you’re looking to chill out whilst enjoying an upscale environment, then this is the place for you.
In another part of the Cotswolds is the beautiful country house retreat of Calcot Manor. It’s slate-lined indoor pool, outdoor pool and outdoor hot tub are all very welcoming and you won’t want to leave. There are a number of treatments including a variety of facials including CACI (anti-aging micro-current therapy) and aromatherapy.
It may be more contemporary than Dormy House, but it’s offerings are just as appealing. Using local natural products, the treatments where will spoil you. With an indoor pool and an outdoor pool in addition to a gym, sauna, steam room and a dedicated area for pedicures and manicures, life is a dream at Cowley Manor. Even the modern design of the building is delightfully decadent.
If you’re based in London and you don’t like to travel too far outside, then Coworth Park could be for you. Located in Ascot, Berkshire, it prides itself on being environmentally friendly and innovative and has gone all out to install a stunning wildflower meadow. Look out for the fabulous art work and sculptures as you enjoy the splendour of the natural light. There are eight treatment rooms and a pool that comes with underwater music.
Located just a mile or so away, Pennyhill Park is known for being the choice of the English rubgy team. With 8 (yes, that’s the number eight!) swimming pools to choose from, you’ll also find that you have a wide choice of hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas to enjoy. The name of the game is detox, cleanse and relax and there’s no doubt about it, it’s a winning combination at Pennyhill Park. Don’t miss the body and head massage for couples.
There’s nowhere in the country like Cornwall for getting away. Visiting The Scarlet gives you an excuse to get on down there. You’ll find a spa that offers a range of both deep relaxation and light relaxation choices with the latter being performed in front of an amazing sea view. The outdoor pool has rocks, reeds and is truly remarkable with two hot tubs that overlook the sea.
No list of spa hotels would be complete without the inclusion of the time tested elegant Chewton Glen. It has grandeur and is imposing but with a contemporary twist. The New Forest is not far from London and when there’s the largest hydrotherapy pool in Europe and a 17m indoor pool with Grecian columns and an outdoor pool to try, then it’s definitely worth the journey. Expect true relaxation and you won’t be disappointed.
