Spa ladies

When Brides- to- be or hen party planners are organising a hen party spa event, they are often asked questions that need to be answered before the booking process can take place.

Here we provide some answers to questions that might arise – which we hope will assist you in the planning stage and make booking a spa hen party that bit easier!

Q. Not all the ladies in my hen party can stay overnight, can some invitees just pay and come for the spa day element?

A. Yes -you can usually arrange for your hen party day spa guests to have use of the spa facilities along with your overnight hen party guests- meaning everyone can enjoy time together.

Q. Can my hen party just turn up at the spa and book our treatments on arrival

A. No, this isn’t normally an option, spa treatments are very popular and to allow the therapists to provide guests with great experiences- specific treatment time slots do need to be pre-booked

Q. I don’t understand what the spa means by ‘consultation time’ – what does this mean?

A.  At the beginning of any treatment, therapists may ask guests to complete a short questionnaire which might ask about their beauty/health concerns or aims, as well as they may discuss any potential contraindications to treatment. This consultation period is beneficial in providing the therapist with information to aid them in your treatment programme

Q. Can the day spa invitees also have beauty treatments?

Yes, the spa will arrange times to suit all the members of your party. For instance, if you and your overnight bridal group book a 2-night spa stay (on a package with 2 treatments per person) and arrived at your venue on a Friday afternoon, you may decide to have 1 of your treatments each. On Saturday morning, your party size may increase to include spa day only guests (who may also wish to join you for a booked evening meal at the hotel) and the spa will book out appropriate treatment times for everyone.

Q. What type of beauty treatments might we be offered by the spa

A. Beauty treatment choices are usually quite extensive, some of the most popular spa treatments include: relaxing back, neck & shoulder massages, invigorating scrubs, rejuvenating  and soothing facials, pampering manicures and pedicures, tanning etc

Q. My mother would like a massage- will a 25 minute massage be a full body massage?

A. Most 25 minute massage treatments consist of a back, neck and shoulder massage- however your mother could opt to upgrade to a 55 minute full body treatment- this will need to be discussed with the spa as there may be a variety of full body massages to choose from -and this treatment time will need to be pre- booked

Q. Will the spa therapists tell me which products are best for me to use at home?

A. Spa Therapists are very knowledgeable about the brands used at their spas and are happy to discuss which products may best suit you and to suggest how they should be used, so don’t be afraid to ask for their advice

Q. Can I buy products at the spa to take home with me?

A.  You certainly can, in fact many spas have great retail areas with an array of products for you to choose from. If you like brands/ products that were used during your treatment, these will likely be available for you to purchase in the retail area or reception of the spa.
