The Spa at Wynyard Hall is located in the old boathouse by the lake, only a short distance from the hotel.
The spa experience starts in the conservatory which has lovely green wicker furniture and overlooks the lake. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you are seated here whilst you fill out your consultation forms.You are provided a locker in the changing rooms which contains a towel, robe and spa slippers. The changing rooms themselves are quite small, with only two showers and changing cubicles – which are necessary as this is a unisex area. However, they do have all the amenities you could need including hairdryers and straighteners.
The salt inhalation room has heated mosaic benches in is a great place to start your relaxation experience. Salt has been used for it’s healing properties for centuries, this is a great treatment for anybody who suffers with headaches. Remember to stay hydrated with the cooled drinks available in the thermal suite.
The herbal sauna which is lavender scented has views out onto the lake and outside terrace. This was wonderfully hot and the lavender oil truly helps you to unwind.
The outside terrace has two hot tubs, which are heated to a comfortable temperature and has beautiful views over the lake. Whilst we were visiting it was so tranquil with bright autumnal colours. There are also a selection of loungers, which would be lovely during the summer.If you need to cool down between the experiences, there is a choice between an ice fountain or cold drench shower (if you dare!)
Rasul Mud Experience
The Rasul chamber is an additional add on to the spa experience (£15 per person). This treatment uses the therapeutic benefits of mineral mud to improve your skin and detoxify the body. It starts with a lemongrass salt scrub, you then apply the Rasul Mud onto cleansed skin. There are three different muds that you apply to your hair, face and body. You then spend a relaxing 30 minutes in a steam room with heated seats.Once I showered off the mud, my skin felt incredibly smooth and clean, I would definitely recommend the Rasul mud experience as an additional treat during your spa experience.
The list of treatments available sounds amazing. However, we could only secure two 30 minute treatment sessions when visiting- booking in advance is definitely necessary if you want to take advantage of their spa treatment packages.
I went for the Media Vespers (30 minutes, £35) which is a massage for the back, neck and shoulders, which claims to “wind you down and calm your mind”.My therapist lead me to the treatment room, which was well presented with ambient lighting. The treatment began with a foot cleanse and a cooling gel. The massage itself was incredibly relaxing and the heated massage table was a great touch – I could have stayed there all day, total bliss!
I thoroughly enjoyed my Media Vespers massage and Rasul Mud Experience, they were incredibly relaxing and I felt rejuvenated for the rest of the day.
Relaxing in the hot tubs on the terrace with idyllic views including the geese on the lake was a great way to spend an afternoon.
The spa attendants were incredibly helpful and friendly offering advice on treatments, products and ensuring that you enjoy your time. This makes you feel welcome and sets the tone for this relaxing spa environment.
I would recommend The Spa at Wynyard hall for anybody who would like to spend a relaxing day indulging at a spa with a serene location.
Would I visit again? Absolutely. I’m checking out their offers page and the ‘Cosy Winter Nights’ has caught my eye.
