Are you getting breaking into a cold sweat at the thought of planning a friend’s hen party? Or are you the bride in charge of it? First things first - where to go?! We have an extensive selection of both city and countryside spa hotels across the UK, all of which we think are pretty fabulous. But don’t just take our word for it - see what our lovely spa stayers had to say when they booked a spa break in London & the South.
• Toni-Anne enjoyed a one night spa break for her daughters hen party in April 2013 at the Wyndham Grand, Chelsea Harbour.
In follow up to our piece yesterday on what lovely spa treatments to have if the weather is exactly what it is (miserable!), here is our guide to the best treatments should the weather be exactly what we are keeping our fingers crossed for, blue sky and beautiful sunshine!
1. Start off with a scrub: The best way to kick start your holiday glow - too much sun and dehydration can leave the epidermis feeling dry and looking dull, so why not refresh and renew with a delicious sounding lime and ginger salt glow. Available at the Crerar Chevin Country Park Hotel, this scrub is the perfect pick-me-up before your next holiday, rejuvenating the skin and leaving it silky smooth to the touch. Nourishing essential oils including lime, ginger and rock salt are massaged into the skin to stimulate and massage the skin.
Now it’s a British trait to talk for hours about the weather isn't it? It’s a conversation starter, an awkward pause dodger and an involuntary action when looking out of the office, house and bus window - even when sitting on your own. Who hasn't rolled their eyes and tutted thinking about the soggy barbecue when just 24 hours previously we had been predicted a heat wave?
So let’s have a look at the best treatments to enjoy whilst escaping the downpours!
It used to be that when the summer school holidays arrived, it wouldn't be possible to have a family break at UK hotel that catered for both adult and child ‘pleasure & leisure’.
At SpaStaySelect.com we like to offer you as much choice as possible so we make it our mission to add as many 4 & 5* Spa Hotels as possible... and here are three more for you to enjoy!

You've got your girls, your deposits and your confirmed date.
Now it’s just the most important decision of all - you need to choose the venue, argh!
With most events in the 21st Century, the internet is now the world’s first port of call - gaining information from around the globe at the click of a mouse. Sites such as Facebook and Twitter lit up with news and comments, as the world waited in anticipation for news about the royal baby. It was refreshing to see the excited crowds gathered outside Buckingham Palace on Monday 22nd July 2013, eager for a glimpse of such an historic occasion.
At 16:24 BST time, the new prince was born and the future of the monarchy decided with the arrival of a boy. (If the baby had been a girl, she would have been in the same regal position, after the Commonwealth agreed changes to the 300 year old law of succession).
It’s getting hot in here so if you, like countless others, are eager to escape the city for the weekend but are unsure where to go, grab your swimming costume, sunscreen and someone special and head to a four star spa to unwind in style.
If you are thinking of making this a summer weekend to indulge in some ‘me’ time then here are our top tips for getting the most out of your summer spa break…

Have Mottram Hall just created the most desirable spa this side of Cheshire?!
I ask having just sneaked a peek at the newly-unveiled addition to the already four-star spa facilities: the (rather futuristic-sounding) Alfresco Thermospace.
OK girls – your wedding day is drawing nearer and nearer, and you have managed all the arrangements brilliantly.
You've had a million things on your mind and you could start a new career as - a juggler!
Okay, so we know that we are not the next generation of royalty, but it doesn’t mean we can’t feel like it! And what better way to celebrate the imminent arrival of one baby Windsor and the news of another royal addition by making the most of all that this glorious country has to offer!
So leave your passport at home and enjoy a spa break in the UK! Who wants to worry about travel insurance, flight cancellations and the exchange rate anyway?!
Well it's the summer, so why not jump into four star spa facilities that include a gym, steam rooms, jacuzzi , sauna, swimming pool and three beauty rooms at the Shrigley Hall Hotel, Cheshire.
If you would prefer to make the most of the weather then get your girls together for a relaxing break in the sun, and enjoy a glass of crisp white wine whilst basking outdoors, at the Courtyard Bar.
Now let’s be honest... the hen party has to be good!
It doesn’t make any difference if you (as the bride) are responsible for organising your own, or if you're lucky enoughto have a family member, close friend or maid of honour organising it for you... it's just GOT to be good. You want everyone to have great memories of every aspect of your wedding – and the hen party is no exception.
Well the news is out...
Prince William and Kate’s soon-to-be-born baby will officially be named either Prince or Princess of Cambridge!
The heat wave is finally here; thank goodness for that!
Whilst like you we are eager to get out to the park, beach and spa pool, the sunny weather did have us thinking - are we ready for the summer sun? Are we all sun safe?
I am organising my own hen spa weekend – obviously I want it to be really special, so I hope that you can help me. Here is my hen spa party check list!
The Wedding of the year... such an event... how exciting!
You are really looking forward to it until... the bride asks you to organize her hen party!
Sunny days... hooray!! Apparently, we are due for at least a week of sunny and warm weather, so it’s time to break out those lovely summer outfits you’ve been dying to wear – and bare a little skin! When the weather is good, you're probably yearning to get away from your everyday surroundings and, in the UK, we are lucky to be able to easily access cities, towns, coastal resorts and countryside retreats.
You may want to spend days relaxing on a shimmering beach and taking an early evening walk along the seafront. Or perhaps you might prefer to head to the countryside and pack an indulgent picnic, or visit a ‘national treasure’ and have an afternoon cream tea?
Mum’s the Word......
Are you expecting a ‘mini-me’ soon? Are you now over your first trimester and no longer suffering from morning sickness? If so, why not consider booking a UK spa break or spa day at a fabulous resort through SpaStaySelect.com?
Summertime is here and, if we are really lucky, it will soon be hot – by day and by night!
Lovely though that thought might be, in reality if you have long hair it’s great to ‘gather your hair up’ off your neck and face - allowing you to feel that little bit cooler - whether you are shopping in town, on a country walk, or relaxing after a great spa treatment.
