This week marks the eighth annual National Spa Week (17-23 September) -- a great excuse to have some "me" time and explore the UK’s very best spas.
To celebrate, we’ve come up with a host of pampering options to suit everyone from spa enthusiasts to beauty buffs and those who just like an occasional treat.
If it’s pure luxury you’re after, take a trip to London’s The Spa in Dolphin Square. This Moroccan-themed venue was named Best Day Spa in The Good Spa Guide Awards 2012 earlier this month, and for £99 (instead of £199), you and a friend will get a 25-minute facial or massage each, a hammam treatment, a salt steam room session and a selection of Moroccan-themed treats to eat.
Southampton residents can combine a pampering session with a day of shopping with this deal from Lakeside Spa, which is located in the 4-star Legacy Botleigh Grange Hotel & Spa. Re-energise with any 60-minute treatment (or two 30-minute treatments) for £39 instead of £80, before heading into the city centre for some retail therapy.
If a day on the coast appeals, we’ve negotiated a great offer from the top-rated Cornwall Hotel Spa & Estate. The hotel’s Clearing Spa offers gorgeous views across the west coast, providing the perfect location for a day of rest. For £49 instead of up to £106, you’ll get a 50-minute treatment, use of the spa facilities (described by The Independent as “stunning”) plus a glass of prosecco.
However, we know that sometimes, a day of pampering just doesn’t cut it. If you’re in need of some serious downtime, then this exclusive deal from Quay Hotel & Spa in North Wales could be just the thing. Choose between a day spa package for £49, or a 1-, 2-, or 3-night stay at the award-winning hotel -- the overnight deals also include a tasty meal for two in the hotel’s 2-AA-Rosette restaurant.
For the Northerners amongst you, we’ve got a deal from Chorley’s Cleopatra’s Spa, which includes two 30-minute treatments and access to the spa facilities, for £35 (worth up to £84.30). The venue was tried and tested by one of our very own Deal Experts, who said she was particularly impressed by the knowledgeable beauty therapists and the spa’s large whirlpool bath.
If none of these grab your fancy, then panic not -- we’ve got an exclusive nationwide deal on offer with Dove Spas. Travelzoo subscribers can save 54% on a 30-minute aromatherapy massage and 30-minute facial at 17 locations across the UK -- a great excuse to pop into your local spa for a spot of pampering!
