Love is in the air this month and if you’re looking for a tranquil escape with some quality couple time then you need look no further than a visit to the wonderfully refurbished, Bedford Lodge Spa in Newmarket. It’s the perfect place if you want to fully relax, recharge your batteries and feel like a million dollars.
A spacious, modern spa with brilliant facilities, guests are spoilt for choice in regards to what to try first.
Facilities include a hydrotherapy pool with five different water settings, outdoor rooftop hot tub, Rasul, an ice fountain, experiential shower, sauna, steam room, hammam, relaxation room and a couples’ treatment suite.
On arrival Tea and homemade lavender macaroons awaited us, before we were whisked away to change into our fluffy gowns ready for some serious pampering. Our first treatment was the ‘ESPA Time’ which took place in the dual treatment room with its soft music and mood lighting the ambience was just perfect. The treatment started with a luxurious foot scrub, followed by a back massage, facial and a divine head massage for guaranteed relaxation.
The massage began using a blend of individually chosen oils leaving us feeling relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated; the facial was just as wonderful – pure heaven and a real treat.
With our ESPA Time finished we headed to the Rasul where after applying the nourishing muds all over our face and body we relaxed in the private rasul steam room, leaving our skin smooth and our minds calm and de stressed
Lunch followed in the spa lounge, before we enjoyed the rest of what was on offer from this glorious spa – starting with the hydrotherapy pool, steam room, and sauna before having a blissful sit down, well actually I lay down on the heated poolside bench.
Next stop was the rooftop hot tub, where we enjoyed the bubbles before finally heading to the loungers located on the light airy mezzanine to drift off into a dreamland for a little while.
The spa is absolutely stunning and the range of facilities on offer is impressive. Any stress you feel pre-spa visit will soon evaporate, leaving you feeling truly relaxed and pampered.
