Sponsored Post: Spa Breaks.

Wouldn’t you just love to spend a day (or night/ weekend) being pampered in a spa with beautiful surroundings? Me too! Although I always assumed that spa visits were very expensive and that I’d never be able to justify spending excessive amounts of money on one, not whilst saving for a wedding anyway – especially if the experience was tainted by guilty spending feelings.

Luckily I’ve just found that there are spa experiences that won’t break my bank after browsing lusting over the Spa Breaks website, their spa weekend special offers page to be precise and I’ve found some offers that I actually wouldn’t feel guilty buying – I’ve listed a few below.

Overnight stay:

Bannatyne Charlton House

From £269 you could go on a romantic break for 2 people (price is per couple, not per person and I know it says from, but a lot of dates are showing at that price, even through to summer) at the Bannatyne Charlton House. The price includes 1 night’s bed, breakfast, a three course candlelit dinner, a 55 minute treatment each, half a bottle of champagne to share and an indulgent afternoon tea... plus the use of their thermal facilities. To me this represents quite good value as firstly it looks amazing (don’t you think?) and secondly the amount of things you get included with this offer seem well worth the price per person.

Spa days:

Macdonald’s Marine Hotel

For £165 per couple until the end of March, Macdonald’s Marine Hotel in Scotland is offering a spa day for 2 which includes a healthy lunch in the sea view bar lounge, hot volcanic stones massage including a warming foot relief treatment and Decleor Time Precious Facial with unlimited use of all their leisure facilities... plus use of a robe, slippers and towels to boot. The Decleor facial sounds gorgeous (I do love their products) and the hot stones massage devine... I’d certainly pay £82.50 for this if it was closer to me.

Various Bannatyne Spa Venues

Bannatyne Spa in many areas also do a special offer for a 2 person spa day costing just £65 (for 2 people, not each) where you get the choice of a Swedish back, neck & shoulder massage or Elemis 30 minute facial plus full use of the health club facilities. It also mentions something about a scalp massage but I can’t quite work out if that’s another option to choose from or if it’s an additional treatment... but for £32.50 each, even just the one treatment plus use of the facilities is good value. I’ve linked to the Milton Keynes page, however if you search the special offers page then you’ll find all participating locations.

Of course you could go all out and go somewhere for a week, or to much more expensive venues which will indeed cost a lot more (of which there are some available on the Spa Breaks website, which includes Spa Days) but I know that times can be hard for a lot of people so I wanted to show that you can treat yourself to a little bit of luxury and pampering without the guilt (or risk of bankruptcy).

So what do you think about spa breaks, would you go on one? Have you been on one? I definitely think I’m in need of one very soon!
