Tick all the perfect getaway boxes with a celebratory break at one of the region’s top award-winning spas

Celebrate in style or just escape for a while. Whatever your reason for visiting, whether it’s to celebrate a particular milestone or simply to celebrate life in general, The SPA Hotel at Ribby Hall Village will leave you feeling blissfully relaxed and rejuvenated.

There’s something very special about sitting in an outdoor hot tub, with the sun gently setting in the distance and a glass of perfectly chilled bubbly waiting for you in the Champagne Bar.

You’ve had a wonderful afternoon treating your body to a sensory mixture of hot and cold experiences – the cleansing heat of the saunarium, the softly massaging jets of the hydrotherapy pool and the deliciously fragrant Balinese salt inhalation room, all designed to cleanse the skin and soothe the mind.

Now, the day is coming to an end, but you know there are still further treats to come. Your glass of Champagne, of course, followed by some mouth-watering food in a 2AA Rosette restaurant and a sumptuous room to return to when it gets late.

It may all sound a little bit too perfect but, at The SPA Hotel, this really is business as usual. Whether you stay for two hours or two nights, you can be assured of pampering perfection. This is why The SPA Hotel has consistently been awarded a 5 Bubble rating from the Good Spa Guide ever since it opened in 2011.

“The team here really will pull out all the stops to make sure your visit or overnight stay is absolutely perfect,” says SPA Manager Jane Tregonning.

“Over the years, we’ve listened to everything our customers have told us and we constantly look to offer something new and different to ensure that we are presenting the pinnacle of luxury and give good reason for our guests to return again and again.”

It says something about the clever design of The SPA Hotel and the ambience the team creates, that it can be different things to different clients. There’s a definite touch of luxury, a sense of being made to feel special, which makes it the perfect venue for a chilled-out celebration with close friends, a partner or family.

Making memories – a milestone birthday, a new job, an impending wedding or an anniversary can all be celebrated in true spa style. The two-hour Aqua Thermal Journey, taking in all those heat experiences as well as the outdoor Zen Garden, provides plenty of opportunity for chatting, sharing memories and inspiring a giggle or two. Especially when it comes to the ice shower – who will try it?

Treatment rooms are designed so that mothers and daughters, friends or couples can enjoy a facial, body wrap or massage, side by side. When your skin is glowing and feeling soft, your feet perhaps beautifully pedicured too, it’s time to continue your celebration in The Orangery or The Brasserie where the super-talented chefs will create something delicious for you to eat, once you’ve sipped cocktails or mocktails in the Champagne Bar, of course.

In subtle contrast, for those wanting to escape the world and recharge their batteries, The SPA is a sanctuary of peace and calm. It’s a place where expert hands, and the rejuvenating power of water and heat, combine to soothe away the stresses of the everyday and leave you revitalised. A place where the only glimpses of the outside world are taken from a Himalayan salt sauna, a bubbling hot tub or an outdoor monsoon shower.

The SPA offers its own signature treatments, some designed specifically to detoxify and regenerate, but all leaving you feeling invigorated and revived. There are specialist treatments, such as crystal therapy, holistic therapies and a full choice of hot stone, deep tissue and body massages.

Then, just when you thought you couldn’t be any more relaxed, you enter the candle-lit Dark Relaxation Room where a post-treatment snooze really would not go amiss at all. If your aim really was to escape from it all, you have found the perfect place. If you choose to spend the night, your room will be individually designed for luxury and comfort, with calming décor, soft furnishings and innovative lighting.

So, whether celebrating in style or relaxing in true four-star comfort, The SPA Hotel has all the ingredients for an idyllic stay. Whatever the reason, the attentive and friendly team will ensure that your visit ticks all the ‘perfect getaway’ boxes. Will you enjoy your afternoon tea in fluffy dressing gowns or will you dress up to the nines? You decide, it’s your day, after all.

Spa Breaks at The Spa Hotel, including breakfast, dinner, access to the Aqua Thermal Journey and overnight stay, start from £119 per person
