The south west of the UK is home to some of the best spas in the country. Think luxury, think specialist, think divine break. While there are many fabulous spas in the south west area, we’ve been able to provide a list of some of our personal favourites.
1) THE ROYAL CRESCENT HOTEL & SPA – BATH
Do you or your friend desire the taste of royalty? Consider splashing out at the divine Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa. Situated in a stunning city known as Bath, this beautiful venue won’t leave you short on things to do. Inside you’ll find a Himalayan salt infused sauna which is said to have great healing properties for the skin and for the immune system. There is also a ‘blossom steam inhalation room’ – just the thing you need for relaxation and a detox. Still not convinced? There is even a deep candlelit pool to provide an intimate moment with your loved one.
2) ST MICHAEL’S HOTEL – CORNWALL
