Thank you for a wonderful year !

It’s always wonderful at the end of a busy year to take a moment to look back, so we wanted to thank everyone who has visited The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel in 2022 and made it such an enjoyable one for us all!

It’s been just over a year since I started as the Spa Manager here and it’s been such a joy to witness everything open properly again in the hospitality industry, and welcome lots of our regular spa guests back into the facilities – as well as meeting lots of new faces.

One particular highlight was our spa winning the Best Boutique Spa in the Boutique Hotelier Awards 2022. We were so thrilled, as we truly believe in providing our guests the gold standard in spa experience and our incredible team makes this possible. From the spa attendants, to the receptionists and the therapists, right through to the marketing and management, we believe the dedication and passion from the whole team makes The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel experience unforgettable. To be recognised for our work to become as inclusive as possible, including our Wellness for Cancer training and dedicated treatment menu, makes it even more special. We have now also been shortlisted for the Professional Beauty Awards best boutique spa 2023, which will be announced in March next year. Wish us luck!

Another highlight would be The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel being chosen by ESPA to partner in the launch of the ESPA Modern Alchemy Spa Day and Spa Break. The exclusive treatment packages, which are only available at a limited number of luxury spas in the UK, feature heavenly body treatments taking guests on a transformational, sensual journey. Created with ESPA’s Modern Alchemy products, known to harness the wisdom and restorative power of nature, the new Modern Alchemy Harmonising Ritual and Modern Alchemy Empowering Ritual focus on the rejuvenation of the skin, body, and mind. The rituals focus on three main wellness pillars: the power of flowers, understanding of adaptogenic roots and utilising herbs and mushroom extracts.  These Modern Alchemy rituals provide grounding realignment for a deeper, more meaningful journey to relaxation. Have you booked in to try one yet?

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, we were very proud to host some very special wellness for cancer influencers to help raise awareness that spa treatments are available for those going through or recovering from cancer treatments. Our therapists have had specialist Wellness for Cancer training, and this means they are able to safely deliver much needed TLC and touch therapy. You can read my blog post on it here: Breast Cancer Awareness Month | Bedford Lodge Hotel Spa.

With all our new launches and treatment packages, we incorporate our philosophy of inclusivity and a bespoke, personalised service. With this in mind, that is why we launched our mid-week menopause spa day package. The package is designed to suit those experiencing hormonal changes, such as symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Everyone on the team appreciates that it is a time when people are often looking for more than just physical help – the emotional challenges can be very draining too, which is why a stress-relieving spa day can be helpful. You can read my advice on why a spa day is good for treating menopausal symptoms here: Can you improve menopause symptoms with a visit to the Spa? | Bedford Lodge Hotel Spa

As always, do get in touch with us if you have any questions about visiting the spa or the treatments on offer. We will be celebrating The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel’s 10 year anniversary next summer, so stay updated for exciting new launches and celebrations!

Until next time,
