Organising a hen party spa weekend?

Where on earth do you start?

Published: 11th March 2017

Hen partyIf you have the task of organising either your own hen spa party or you have been asked to organise someone else’s Hen Spa weekend –you may feel a little daunted and unsure where to begin. After all for the Bride-to –be, the hen party is the next most important event to the wedding itself, so you definitely want to make it: Fun, enjoyable and memorable for all the right reasons!

From years of experience of helping Brides-to-be and their groups, we know that there is nothing nicer for them than to be able to relax and have fun together in a luxury environment where indulging is the order of the day!

However we are also aware that today’s lifestyle may mean that you are working increasingly longer hours, your family life is busier and you are always ‘on the go’ – so how on earth will you find the time to organize a Hen Spa Party?

Just take a deep breath and firstly break down the initial tasks, like the number of people invited, the mix of age groups, do they know each other, travel distance etc – once you have a better idea of these facts, planning gets easier!

That’s where we come in as showcasing Hen spa and wellness experiences are our speciality- are really good at this, after all we have helped thousands of ‘hens’ with choosing spa weekends/spa days all over the UK every year.

We showcase a fabulous choice of luxury UK hotel & day spa destinations - in cities, countryside, coast, or rural locations –you can find great spa and leisure facilities, tranquil relaxation rooms, comfortable and inviting bedrooms, bars, restaurants, lounges, gardens - all you have to do is choose one!

So take a look at what you can look forward to....


 Venues friendly and professional staff can help you to arrange the most convenient times for all your hen party members’ treatments, either on your day of arrival or if you are staying overnight perhaps you might prefer treatments the next day.

Enjoy luxurious spa treatments including relaxing full body massages, soothing facials, exfoliating body scrubs, invigorating massages, great manicures and pedicures.

The Bride-to-be and her wedding helpers and hen party spa guests can unwind in steam rooms, Jacuzzi, sauna, perhaps take a gentle (or energetic) swim in a heated pool, or take it easy and relax and chat with friends in candlelit aroma filled relaxation rooms, whilst lying on comfy day beds.

Later why not indulge in a casual lunch ‘spa-side’ – or (in some venues) benefit from a healthy & refreshing ‘table’ lunch (did we mention enjoy a drop or two of the fizzy stuff!)

Many spa and pamper facility facilities will go the extra mile for the bride-to-be to ensure that she feels as spoilt and stress free as possible on her weekend. Why not consider ‘clubbing together’- put in an extra few pounds each and buy her an additional treatment as a surprise -she will love you for it!  Just ask the spa therapist or receptionist, who will always be happy to recommend the most popular or suitable brands or products.


You can choose to stay overnight or for a weekend in fantastic destinations–including luxury hotels, lodges, country manor houses, glamping pods or stay or the day at a great destination day spa or salon.

Perhaps you might choose to stay in a lively hotel venue that offers night time entertainment or you may want to choose to enjoy a more peaceful evening with cocktails before dinner!

Hotel venues will always be happy to advise on how many people can share a bedroom, the best time to organise evening dinner, - and also be able to assist with organizing a ‘mixed party’ of some of the guest’s preference of a day package and others on an overnight package.

If you are arranging a non residential spa day and having a get together at home or perhaps you might consider hiring a lodge or apartment, well don’t forget to see our Organise My Occasion directory for ideas of activities or experiences you can add on!


your favourite venue, pick the most suitable spa package for your party’s budget and submit your enquiry directly to your venue of choice!

Don’t forget ask about any added little extras such as room upgrades, bottles of wine, an extra spa treatment. #timetounwind
