Relaxation…Georgian style

25th June 2014

This week I’ve got spas in my eyes after a blissful visit to the beautiful Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa in Bath.

There are some tweets that just make your day sing and one of them chirped into my feed a few weeks ago. It was from the Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa in Bath, saying they had just refurbished their spa and asking if I’d like to come along and check it out. Does Elizabeth love Mr Darcy?! Bloody right!

The Spa interior

Set within the hotel’s stunning Georgian architecture, it really is a little gem in the heart of the city. The new spa boasts a fabulous heated pool, hot and cool tubs, a steam room and sauna. The building itself reminded me of an old church, made from Bath stone with huge windows and high ceilings. The spa interior is decked out with natural woods and bamboo, which gives it a really tranquil atmosphere – not to mention a lovely woody smell. We visited on a Saturday and were the only guests there, so we had the whole place to ourselves, which is exactly how I like it.

The products they use are by ESPA and there were candles burning with a lovely sweet scent of Palmarosa, Sweet Orange and Lavender. The thing I loved the most was their shower gel and hair products, which smelled like bergamot. It’s much more natural smelling than what I would usually go for (I tend to prefer sweet, floral smells) but actually I think it might be the start of a new olfactory journey for me. It’s a much more grown up scent and uses all-natural ingredients.

The spa is currently offering membership packages, which include special discounts for the hotel and restaurant. Membership starts from £65 a month, which is pricey, but my goodness it’s really luxurious and such a treat! Visit http://www.royalcrescent.co.uk/spa/

Disclosure: I was treated to a free spa day, but I wasn’t paid for this piece and all views in this blog are definitely my own. So there.
