The top 5 Girly Spa breaks in and around South Manchester.
Titanic Spa is the UK’s first eco-spa, which makes the very industrial building it inhabits all the more intriguing. Favoured for its seclusion on the edge of the Pennines, this intimate spa has gone beyond the organic philosophy, offering exceptional results-driven spa treatments and products by Decléor, Carita and Neom Organics, creating spa therapies to work in natural synergy with skin, body and mind.
Fabulously, you and your very best friends can enjoy the best of Spa luxury and the fun of bunking up togther in the fabulously designed Spa Apartments, which sleep up to eight people and are luxuriantly spacious, with panoramic windows offering views of the surrounding countryside.
Ragdale Hall combines state-of-the-art facilities with the charm of traditional Victorian architecture to create one of the most luxurious and relaxing health spas in the country, but it’s the Thermal Spa that really sets Ragdale Hall apart. Comprising exclusive delights including a Candle Pool - an entrancing, mosaic cavern with lapping water lit by the flicker of candles and a star-lit ceiling; the Colourflow Cave - filled with a humid and heady mix of jasmine and camomile, a river of colour flows to a central crystal mountain to provide a hedonistic detox; a Volcanic Salt Bath - an intense and 100% humid experience within a velvet darkness of hewn basalt and slate; the Rose Sauna - images and scents of roses imbue this Scandinavian sauna with a fresh twist, and the extraordinary Cave Shower - a cave lit by stars recreates the sensation of being caught in a thunder storm in paradise, you and your girlfriends will have an unforgettable getaway.
Fancy something a little further afield? Get back to nature with a sensory spa break in one of Andalucia’s stunning National Parks. The spa cabana at this luxury retreat nestles amongst the trees and guests enjoy pampering treatments (organic of course) against the backdrop of chirping cicadas and the scent of pines.
DDG Retreat’s therapist is famed for her expertise in rejuvenating mind, body and soul - and guests regularly hail her massages as ‘the best ever.’ Afterwards, stretch out on a daybed or hammock and take in the spectacular panoramic views or enjoy a leisurely swim in the infinity pool, awarded the accolade of being amongst the seven best ultra-glam swimming pools in Europe, before retiring to one of six individually designed boho chic casas decorated with antiques and artefacts from around the world. A serious chill-out option.
The Mere Golf Resort & Spa
Without doubt one of Cheshire’s, if not the North West’s, most luxurious spas, The Mere offers a retreat from the stresses of wedding planning that will relax mind, body and soul.
Situated in acres of Cheshire parkland, The Mere’s Health Club and Spa has a prestigious Five Bubble rating from The Good Spa Guide and offers everything you need to unwind, from a world-class workout area and stunning pool and thermal zone, to a wide selection of premier spa treatments including purifying facials and skincare rituals, deeply relaxing massages and body treatments from luxury product houses Aromatherapy Associates, Carita and Babor.
The team at The Mere have clearly thought through their Girls’ Nights too, as not only do they pop bubbles in the rooms, but include chick flicks and chocolate in the package too. Clever!
The Spa at Hale Country Club
Hale Country Club is a day out packed full of leisure activities that – quite frankly – means you don’t want to leave.
Treatments on offer include Hot Lava Shell massage, ESPA facial with Lift and Firming Eye Treatment and Dual Thermal Mud Rasul Treatment,
