Find the right luxury spa hotel for you

.

. The likes of Chewton Glen take the crown for being amongst the most luxurious facilities in the country, complete not only with excellent spa treatments but a wide range of facilities and knowledge that are hard to come by.

Meanwhile, the likes of Seaham Hall blend a contemporary knowledge of wellbeing with artistic integrity across the whole venue, all surrounded by rich history and contrastingly rugged coastal surroundings that juxtapose beautifully with the perfectly presented hotel and spa.

The Scarlet has a wide reaching reputation for being a spectacularly romantic hotel to visit but is also Cornwall’s ultra eco friendly low-tech solution to wellbeing travel, managing to fuse style and green credentials with the most spectacular coastal views as you sip champagne in the hot tub overlooking the wild Atlantic below. It is the sister hotel to Bedruthan Hotel and Spa, which continues the stylistic credentials of The Scarlet, but adds to it a family friendliness that appeals to a wholly different market.

Then onto another genre of spa hotel in the form of Lime Wood in the New Forest, a spectacularly hip hotel that has a reputation for its decadent restaurant overseen by celebrity chefs Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder, as well as The Herb House, its standalone spa amongst its awe-inspiring gardens, which has its own rooms to stay in, a dedication to its namesake - the herb garden and, and treatments that fuse efficacy with holistic credentials. It all comes together to make the rustic playground of the stylish set.
