What is a Destination Spa?
A Destination Spa says it in the name, the spa is all about the Destination. You will visit the destination for the Spa, luxury pampering, an impressive Manor House and to accompany it all – idyllic and peaceful views.
A Destination Spa will aim to hit every ‘restore’ button that you have. Visiting Ardencote Destination Spa is the most ideal way to unwind within our state-of-the-art spa facilities and our treatments will provide you with the ideal way to detox and truly relax.
The Key Ingredients to a Destination Spa
At Ardencote we have an overall focus on wellness and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle through:
Our Spa cuisine that emphasises whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables
Our Spa community
Knowledgeable and supportive Spa Therapists
Therapeutic Spa treatments
“Work on the body from the inside out”
Nutrition plays a vital role in your spa experience as it provides fuel for the body and it often results in healthier skin and better fitness.
At Ardencote, our executive spa chefs call on all their culinary talents to create healthy, appetising meal plans that provide a balance of both delicious and wholesome food. In today’s world, people find it difficult to find time to cook fresh and nutritious food, resulting in the overuse of frozen food and ready meals. However, at Ardencote health begins in the kitchen and we are on a mission to encourage and inspire people to eat nutritious yet tasty meals. Research shows that once you have mastered your digestion all other systems in your body can restore, cleanse and return to balance. In turn, this will reduce the inflammation throughout the body, improve cellular functioning, tissue healing and toxin removal.
The advantages of a balanced diet can also aid:
Clarity of Mind
Skin and Hair Quality
Relaxation, nutrition and therapeutic treatments all contribute to helping you feel restored and ready to face the world again.
“Camaraderie is contagious”
Another fundamental feature of a Destination Spa is the high spirit of camaraderie you feel as soon as you enter. On your Ardencote Destination Spa Day you will be with like-minded people who share your interest in health, wellness and fitness.
Visiting us will provide a digital detox, an essential when it comes to resetting and restoring. Human beings are social animals at core, so good company and physical contact are of high importance to your general wellbeing. Spending time together, whether that be family, friends or strangers in an emotionally intimate space will allow you to connect with people on a deeper letter. Reduced screen time means that our Destination Spa is the perfect place to talk about anything that has been on your mind, allowing you to focus on what is important and communicate properly away from electronic devices. This experience will also encourage the release of your ‘happy hormones’ such as oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine, enhancing the pleasure of the experience that you are sharing together.
Top tip – to truly make use of our Destination Spa, stretch out in a group yoga class or get to know someone over a glass of prosecco in the outdoor hot tub; boosting camaraderie and morale.

“The greatest gift you can give yourself is a little bit of your own attention”
Although a visit to the spa is considered luxurious experience, a spa day is not just about indulging in yourself, it is essentially self-healing. A massage can help reduce stress, ease tension, relieve aches and pains, improve blood circulation, strengthen tissues and immunity and improve restful sleep.
A spa day is not only healthy for your interior but also your exterior. A body wrap can increase your metabolism but also invigorate your skin. Our wraps contain herbal compounds that carry many medicinal values. Alternatively, a body scrub will remove your dead and weak skin cells, leaving you with a radiant glow.
You can also combine our services, for example you could start with a massage and then a body treatment (get the body treatment first) or you could opt for a massage and a facial (massage first).
At the start of your treatment, take slow and deep breaths before your treatment begins. Envision every muscle in your body relaxing and then be open about the experience. Always communicate with your therapist. If you have any feedback on the temperature or amount of pressure, do let them know. When you return home remember the good feeling by taking care of yourself, a healthy balanced diet, exercise and a good night and morning routine.
We hope this blog post revealed the core features of a Destination Spa and what you can expect from a visit to the Ardencote.
