Whittlebury Park, a luxury four-star countryside hotel, golf course and spa resort in rural Northamptonshire, has announced the re-opening of its spa following the easing of lockdown with several exciting new treatment packages.

The spa re-opens on 1 September to provide a range of new indulgent treatment packages and experiences, in line with the hotel’s StaySafe Initiative, which gives guests peace of mind that the highest standard of health and safety is being adhered to throughout the resort.

Starting from just £99 per person, the spa will offer day, overnight, or luxury overnight packages designed to give guests more time and a soothing and tranquil experience. All packages include a treatment, use of the spa’s leisure facilities, welcome drink and tasty lunch – ranging from a two-course grazing board to brunch with champagne.

In addition to the above, the Serenity day spa package, at £169 per person, includes an interactive wellness workshop from an ESPA expert, to introduce the mood-boosting effects of essential oils and take guests on a relaxing mindful escape. Guests will learn breathing techniques to bring about a sense of inner calm and will take away some expert tips on how to integrate the practice into daily life.

One of the spa’s new overnight packages is the Tranquillity overnight package. From £259 per person, it includes a delicious cream tea, bottle of Prosecco on arrival, three-course evening meal at Aston’s restaurant, and an overnight stay in either a twin or double club room.

The Seventh Heaven luxury overnight package, from £319 per person, is the most luxurious package. It includes a delicious cream tea, bottle of Champagne on arrival, three-course evening meal in the hotel’s two-rosette award-winning Murrays restaurant, and an overnight stay in an exclusive suite room.

The spa has also introduced two mid-week packages, Glow Getter, at £99 per person, which includes a 40 minute, tension relieving, ‘Peaceful Escape’ treatment, and the Time Out Spa Stay, at £139 per person, which includes a three-course evening meal in the relaxing surroundings of Astons restaurant and an overnight stay in either a twin or double classic room.

The spa will be run with the resort’s StaySafe Initiative in mind. This ensures a healthy and safe stay for guests and a safe working environment for its team members. As always, the highest standards of hygiene will be maintained throughout the spa, and therapists will use the relevant personal protective equipment to ensure the safety of guests and staff.

Appointments will be longer to allow for thorough cleaning between each client, and there will be a limited number of guests permitted in the spa at any one time, to allow for physical distancing. There will be increased sanitation of treatment rooms and facilities, and treatment rooms will receive a room seal to indicate that nobody has accessed the area since the last deep clean.

To prevent transmission from communal-use products, each spa guest will also receive a thoughtful individual amenity kit of essentials on arrival.

Sophie Clear, spa manager says: “We all need a bit of pampering and ‘me-time’ after lockdown, and so we are very excited to be welcoming our valued guests back to our award-winning spa and getting back to doing the things we enjoy. As with the rest of Whittlebury Park, we have implemented thorough staff training and health and safety measures with our StaySafe Initiative, so that we can confidently re-open and offer our guests a tranquil, stress-free experience.”

Whittlebury Spa offers the ultimate in pampering with treatments from the houses of Elemis, ESPA, Payot and Jessica.
