From the moment you drive through the entrance to the resort you feel special. There is a kind of old works ambience to the grounds that I love. I’m a fan of old world luxury, I love modern too but there is something so special about driving into a different world.
The grounds include a golf course and a beautiful garden and the ourself is full of old world charm. It really is perfection in terms of scenery.
Here’s a shot of myself and Sandra at the entrance . So we opted for a facial and some time in the pool and relaxation suite which was amazing . I had a facial tailored for my dry skin which included a masque and head massage. The bed was heated which was perfect climate wise for a snooze. The facial was relaxing and non intrusive in terms of chat, a fact I like. Sometimes the therapists can try and sell you product during the relaxation process and thankfully this is not the case. Opting instead for a list that you can take away and peruse at your leisure.
My skin is dry so the list was all ESPA hydrating products which are lovely. Afterwards I had a session in the pool jacuzzi and some fresh fruit kebabs and OJ. It was heaven. We then in our robes enjoyed champagne and strawberries.
One of the things I enjoyed most about the light relaxation room was the view onto the golf course. You could see everything but it was serene and soundproofed which is what you want when you need to switch off.
We had a wander around the shop which stocks a full range of ESPA. At the time Christmas was in full swing and so they had a shop.
We went after for some afternoon tea and a photo opportunity with the resident doggies who are adorable.
I would highly recommend everything about the hotel and although i couldn’t do an overnight I can say that the rooms are gorgeous and the ambience alone will ensure a return in 2015.
