The Alternative Hen Night

Organising a hen night for a close friend or your sister can be a daunting task especially if L-plate, tacky tiaras and inflatable men aren’t really your thing!

Fear not there is an alternative……

Recently spas and hotels across the UK have realised that not everyone wants to have a rowdy hen night on the town and have started to offer spa breaks as an alternative getaway for hen parties.

What could be better than a relaxing day or weekend away with the girls at some of Britains wonderful hotels and spas? Take advantage of facilities such as saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and Jacuzzi’s. Some venues even have a full programme of workouts for the more energetic. If you are looking for something a little less vigorous then many venues around the country have beautiful grounds that you can take a leisurely stroll in.

Anything from a spa day to a full weekend spa break are available at venues around the UK.

What’s Included?

Spa Days are likely to include the following:
One or two spa treatments
A light lunch
Full use of the venues leisure facilities i.e. swimming pool, gym, sauna & steam rooms

Spa Breaks generally include:

1 or 2 nights accommodation
Several spa treatments
Full us of the venues leisure facilities

What Type of Treatments can I Expect?

Most spa breaks will include one or two treatments. This can range from a manicure or pedicure to a facial or back, neck and shoulder massage. It varies from venue to venue

When Should I Book?

It is always advisable to book a group as early as possible as spa breaks are extremely popular. Extra treatments can usually be added on to your break but again this needs to be done in advance to avoid disappointment.
