Check out some pampering spa days to visit or do it yourself with our recommendations.
Rena Spa at the Midland
Get away from the bustle without ever leaving the city centre at the Rena Spa, located in The Midland hotel. Whether you’re hoping to relax in a sleep room, take a dip in the thermal pool, or work out the tension with one of the spa’s bespoke massages, Rena Spa has everything you need to treat yourself. There are seven different spa day packages on offer, ranging from a quick 25 minute evening treat to an ultimate 225 minute long experience including a 25 minute full body scrub, 50 minute massage, 50 minute facial, 50 minute manicure, and 50 minute pedicure, as well as champagne and lunch.
The Edwardian Manchester
This luxurious Radisson hotel has a whole floor dedicated to its spa facilities. With a 12 metre pool, sauna, stream room, and relaxation room, you’ll be spoilt for choice over ways to relax. The spa offers a full roster of Swedish and deep muscle massages, as well as pregnancy massage, aromatherapy, and hot stone massage. If skin care is more your style, then The Edwardian offers either an express or personalised facial which will leave you feeling rejuvenated and your skin feeling silky smooth. Combine it with one of the body treatments such as the oil and salt rub or body polish to have you feeling like a new person completely.

What’s more, Bali Health Lounge also offers you a membership which gives you one free treatment a month, as well as much cheaper membership prices on subsequent treatments, which is well worth looking into if you want to make your spa trip a regular occurrence.
Of course, sometimes you just want to stay at home, but that’s no reason why you shouldn’t spoil yourself. There are plenty of ways to bring that relaxed spa atmosphere to your own home.
Home hot tubs are no longer just for the mega-rich! Now you can rent one any time you like. Whether it’s to impress at the next summer barbecue, or just to treat yourself, a hot tub makes a wonderful temporary addition to your home.

If you don’t want to go to the spa, why shouldn’t the spa come to you? Mobile spa service glo allows spa technicians to provide a range of treatments in your home. Whether it’s a pamper party you’re after or a solo treatment, glo has all kinds of services on offer.

Sometimes you just can’t make time for a trip to the aestheticians, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect your skincare. A home face steamer is fairly inexpensive and will help keep your face fresh and clear in-between fa- cials. The TYLPRO 4-in-1 Facial Steamer, available from Boots, warms towels, steams your face, humidifies rooms, and diffuses aromatherapy oils, giving you the complete at-home spa experience.
