I'm starting this year off as I mean to go on with new adventures and experiences but also taking time for myself. A perfect way to do that is to treat yourself to a spa day- especially in miserable January so when Y Spa asked if I'd review their facilities with some other bloggers I of course said "err hell yes!!"
We started off the day with Bellinis, Bloody Marys' and brunch in The Waterfront Restaurant- an amazing place to eat which I've written about before (and you can read about just here.) The chefs put on an amazing spread showcasing the buffet options that are included in the spa packages. Queue all the food porn...
From pasta salads to smoothies, poached eggs to pate- we were most certainly spoilt for choice and I couldn't help but try a bit of everything. The great thing is the food was healthy and crazy delicious, making it guilt free to feast upon. The cocktails of course had medicinal health benefits, ahem...
The spa was a lot larger than I'd envisaged; composing of lots of areas to relax and explore. From steam rooms, salt rooms, saunas and chill out areas, there was a place for everyone to unwind and chill out. The salty steam room was one of my favourites with the ambient lighting and the lovely warm steam surrounding me- total bliss!
The Hydrotherapy pool was such a gorgeous temperature that you could easily forget that outside was a chilly day in January and was a great place to be social with the girls and take plenty of posing shots for our blogs- ha! The only thing we were missing was a cocktail and wished that there was an outside bar. Luckily the inside cafe had a vast array of drinks including bubbles so we were soon sipping away loving life!
The appointment was for 30 minutes which I thought would be plenty of time but once my head hit the pillow and the therapist worked her magic, the time flew by and my god did I feel relaxed! The products smelt amazing and teamed with the soothing music I was in pure heaven, Afterwards my whole face felt incredible and radiant leaving me feeling very pampered and spoilt!
Before I knew it my afternoon had flown by and it was soon time to go (boo hiss boo.) The changing room facilities made getting ready a breeze with stacks of fresh towels to help yourself to and plenty of dressing table stations to get ready at.
A day at Y Spa was just what I needed to relax, unwind and feel refreshed for the year ahead. I am 100% going to be returing! It's super easy to get to, being just off the A1 and I can see me returning for a mother-daughter day and a date day with the hubby to try more of the treatments and enjoy what Y Spa has to offer.
