Luxury Treat At Thorpe Park Hotel

I have had the delight of visiting Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa before but it had been quite a few years ago. The quality was top notch then and today, its consistency in style and treatment is still as wonderful, if not better! Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa is in Colton, Leeds, just off the A1 so it is conveniently located, with Leeds and York being in reasoable driving idstance for day trips. It is a beautiful hotel, stylish, modern, impeccable service with lots of reasons to stay. In fact, Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa are nominated in the World Luxury Spa Awards and after experiencing the spa to its full potential, I can easily see why. For my little pre-birthday treat, myself and my best friend Janine decided to take full advantage of what Thorpe Park Hotel has to offer!

The Hotel & Where To Relax

Before or after your spa day, you can have a cup of tea, afternoon tea, light lunch or a quick coffee break in one of their lovely sitting areas. Overlook the pool with an afternoon tea, or perhaps have a light lunch in this outdoor inspired courtyard sitting area, it's so lovely and airy in there! Lunches are available, and it would also make a brilliant place to bring a work colleague or have a quiet meeting, as the environment is incredibly chilled out whilst still keeping a chic vibe!




The Treatments

There is a huge list of treatments up in the spa. Check in to the spa is easy, you're given a lovely robe and slippers, and a wrist band that gives you access to your locker. We headed up for a taster session; we both opted for neck, shoulder and back massage, the treatment was 25 minutes long. You can pick and choose, and the list is endless, including beauty treatments which I was highly impressed with, and would definitely try out second time around! A pedicure would be heavenly!

The relaxation lounge can be taken full advantage of before and after your treatments, with hot herbal teas on tap and little snacks as well as magazines and lounges, chairs which are perfect for stretching out on, or even a nap, which is definitely what we felt like doing. The lady who did my massage was lovely, worked on the areas of my shoulders that were incredibly tight and knotty, and the environment was lovely and quiet, with a choice of two beautiful oils - I picked the fitness oil, perfect for tired muscles. I then retreated to this quiet corner with a herbal tea and chats with my best friend; it was an easy, relaxing experience.










The Pool Area

I've always been in love with the pool here. It has a beautiful Grecian feel, with tiles and ornaments, it is relaxing, clean and easy to get around. There is a pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, including a lot of little areas to relax, nap or even work. It would have been a brilliant place for me to set up office for the afternoon. The sauna is a great way to start out to relax those muscles and a good way to end your spa trip too. The steam room is lovely, very hot and definitely clears your head and sinuses. The jacuzzi is very warm but not too overpowering with the bubbles - a great place to have a good girly chat! The details of the pool area are exactly what I love in a spa, miminal but classic.





You can easily spend a full afternoon alternating from pool to jacuzzi and then another stint in the steam room, all with a glass of prosecco or coffee - whatever takes your fancy, drinks are on tap! Saunas and steam rooms are renowned for being good for aching msucles and good for your circulation. Thorpe Park Spa is such a relaxing environment for seasoned spa goers or people who like to take things a little slower paced. There's no pressure, and the changing rooms have good facilities, with little areas to redo your hair and make up (a must after a spa trip), and good amenities.

This was a lovely day, and would be a wonderful treat for someone's birthday, to allow them to step out of their busy lives, and enjoy a little bit of luxury! I know it was truly a relaxing experience to remember, you could even kick it up a notch with an evening meal and overnight stay, where the pool facilites are complimentary.
