HIS & HERS MAGAZINE HAD AN INVITATION TO A DAY OF LUXURIOUS RELAXATION. FROM THE MOMENT WE STEPPED INTO THE SPA RECEPTION AREA, LIFE SEEMED TO SLOW DOWN TO THAT POINT WHERE YOU CAN DE- STRESS. WE WERE CHARMED BY THE FRIENDLINESS AND EFFICIENCY OF ALL THE STAFF. THEY SIMPLY OFFER A WIDE RANGING AND IMPRESSIVE TREATMENT MENU THAT IS SURE TO INCLUDE MORE THAN A FEW PACKAGES THAT WILL APPEAL.
The sheer scope of the facilities is awe inspiring. We were given a conducted tour: there’s a Thermal Suite for heat and ice experience, the double Rasul Chamber for rejuvenating mud treatments, and of course there is a Relaxation Suite where you can sink into blissful oblivion (people have been known to snore). It’s difficult to describe the sheer luxury and comfort that we were wrapped in for the whole of our visit. There’s a spaciousness that reminds me of Roman architecture, yet it’s a sparkling new venue that stretches as far as a delightful restaurant. We chose from the lunch menu, and so once we had ‘checked in’ and relaxed for a while, we made our way to discover that lunch was waiting for us. The Cajun salmon salad was delicious, with a slight kick of spice that gave it an extra layer of flavour: I’m assured the Chicken Caesar salad was gorgeous. There was plenty of time to eat and chat before our treatments.
The deep tissue muscle energiser massage was truly blissful. It’s therapeutic relaxation to alleviate stress and releases the discomfort of aching muscles. Essential Oil Balms warm and tone the skin. This was followed by a facial (there are many options) that uses essential oils and a gentle polish leaving the skin fresh and radiant. There are many, many treatments to choose from.
